Coffee With Jeff #164: Horace de Vere Cole

27 mins - Published Sun, Nov 18, 2018 by Jeff Kelley

Imagine being born rich enough to spend your life fulfilling your passions … Now imagine your passion was practical jokes. There was a man in the early 20th century who only seemed to want to make people – including himself – laugh. He was a jester who delighted in poking fun of people who are full of themselves.

Today, I have the story of Horace de Vere Cole and the Dreadnought hoax on the 164th episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.
