The name? Why do you ask ...?
The name "Laughing Tony" was created from necessity. During the late 90s and early 00s I was working
in the Canberra CBD and would frequent the local watering hole, The Akuna Club (in Akuna Street, sadly closed down now).
Among the regular patrons was a disproportionate number of Tony's - about 6 or 7 - so the gang had to make up
distinguishing labels for us. Hence we had Duck Tony, Cook Tony, Big Tony, Wog Tony, Mullet Tony and Laughing Tony.
I thought the name was so appropriate (well, it IS a distinguishing feature, I guess!) that I have stuck with it.
