What is a “Wizard Prang”?
In World War One, the Air Force of the day was staffed by young noblemen; those “magnificent men in their flying machines” who went “up-tiddly-up-up“, and of course they went “down-tiddly-down-down“.
Their airborne steeds were known as “Kites”, and a crash was known as a “Prang”, an expression used to describe what our transatlantic cousins would call a “fender-bender”, to this day. Due to the low speeds of their planes, crashes were often survivable.
These were the days before war got ugly and dirty, and for them the whole thing was a whole lot of fun – in their argot, it was “Wizard”. So, the lads would get in their “Wizard Kites”, and once in a while they would have… a “Wizard Prang”.
Who is Wizard Prang?
Born and raised in London (that’s “London, England”, for those of you who failed Geography) , living in Louisville, Kentucky. An “Alpha Geek” by calling, a Christian by profession, weird by nature.
But he is saving up to be eccentric.
