n.— «We have a slang term for big tippers…it’s called George. And Kerry Packer’s a super George. There’s a story in the book, there is an entertainer there named Christina Nisteen and he tipped her a hundred thousand dollar chip after listening to her for two songs—true story—and then flew her and her band on a private plane to Australia to perform at a birthday party for a friend or something. The whole band got a free trip to Australia on him.» —“Kerry Packer dubbed ‘The Prince of Whales’” by Rafael Epstein ABC Radio (Australia) Sept. 30, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
