Cabbage Patch War, The

Performed by:
Kate Hosking

'You can't have a party without music,' said Dad. 'You can't have a fire without smoke,' said Whacka. It went from bad to worse after that. A barbecue from hell. Spuds on the roof. A visit from the police. It was war, a fight to the finish between Dad and Whacka. And Chris was right in the middle of it. All because Dad vomited in the cabbage patch. It could only be a Paul Jennings story.
