I saw that guy on the bus stop next to the shops while driving past on the way to the gym 30 minutes before the robbery took place. He was black and had dreadlocks. I thought it was unusual as we are a white neighbourhood so I knew he was going to rob or bash somebody. I should have called the cops then and there to get them to remove the trash before trouble occurred. Hopefully no more trash will cross the border into this suburb and they will stay in Charnwood or Narrabundah.

Sadly, you are too obvious Roundhead. And maybe spare a thought for the staff member who had to face this sort of thing before you use this incident to launch off on an unhinged screendump.

Spelt with a K not a C but otherwise nicely put.

Perhaps his real name is George Zimmerman.

I dunno but can someone please give him the time machine he so desperately wants to get back to before 1994.

Oh dearie dearie me by golly gee whizzikas. Is it possible that such a large percentage of readers of this august site are completely oblivious to satire, even in its crudest form as posted above? Surely not. Surely it must be just a rare confluence of the less cranially endowed all waking up at the same time? Please say it is so.


Halloween in Australia?
