I find it bizarre that some people’s sex lives are so devoid they need to read that crap.

What? 15 Minute Meals by Jamie Oliver?

I see Tony Abbott has been making good use of the library’s DVD collection when he’s in town.

Literature for bogans.

50 Shades of Grey: The Tropic of Cancer/Delta of Venus reworked for the monosyllabic. The ideal book for women who find Mills & Boons above their reading age.
