Body in Qbn river near the suspension foot bridge

Telegraph has the following: Body in Qbn river

I was wondering why the SES were paddling up the creek yesterday.

What's Your Opinion?

I used to play footy for the Royal, still got me t-shirt somewhere too. We challenged the Royal at Bungendore to a match, and forgot that half the Raiders lived out there. ooops. We got done (Early 1980s).

I like how this thread has been weighed down by fools from both sides of the border, attempting to justify their existence in some way or another. It’s all just a big wonderfully stereo typed world, isn’t it. Have to laugh though.

Thanks for noticing Jazz, but don’t imply that it’s me doing all the tagline recommendations. There have been several threads over the past year or so where there has practically been a consensus (this doesn’t happen often on RA) that somebody’s post should be up there…

Anyway, looking forward to a change.

Maybe we should have some Queanbeyan-related posts up there…

Thumper, if I understood your comment I’d have ta give ya a smack in the mouth 😉

Anyway getting back to the post….. Police are treating the death as suspicious. The dead man was last seen at the Royal hotel, Monaro street at 3am on sat.
He apparently was a maintenance worker at the hotel.

Yes we are listening.

Just because you nominate a tagline doesnt mean we’re going to use it. Many are funny in context but dont really mean much when you see them a year later.

Updating taglines are also pretty low on our priority radar at the moment, but we have done a review recently and will be adding a bunch more in and removing some of the older ones.

That’s because scum, viruses and bacteria don’t grow in sterile areas, unlike Qbyn 🙂

Ahh Canberra, gateway to Queanbeyan.

One thing you have to give give Queanbeyan is that it’s a lot more interesting and fun than Canberra, which is kinda sterile…

Hey Cameron and thetruth, you’re both picketers, how about we picket Jazz or Kramer or someone to actually pay attention to our calls for “tagline”?

I think gratuitous slamming of Queanbeyan, while undeniably funny, is somewhat inappropriate for the front page of RA, especially when beside, the site claims to be “right of reply”.

But someone said something really appropriate and true about this site the other day, and there was a call for it to be used as a tagline, and nobody paid attention. This has happened heaps of times too.

Maybe we should just ask johnboy to do it – I don’t think any taglines have been added or removed since his time at the helm anyway.

Anyone agree with me? Mods, are you listening?

Hmmm… just finished reading the postings to the end, and I’m not so impressed any more.

What’s with everyone posting in the wrong thread all the time. I CAN’T STAND ALL OF YOU

am i too late to get in on this joke? if so, then I’ll tell you all something you may not know about Queanbeyan from my days as a journalist cadet there….


/laughs proudly at own joke, despite not being able to get the html right so the font actually changed in the post

How do you reckon it’d go down as a tagline? 😉

“Yes, and Australia’s pretentious, self absorbed and chronic under-achievers have somewhere to live. CANBERRA.”

Employed somewhere – Canberra is one big sheltered workshop.

I prefer Captains flat myself as the water tastes good and the mine is pleasing to the eye.

I kept going because you didn’t defend your position, and still haven’t. Perhaps you can’t. I can’t stand people who make a rubbish statement that they can’t backup and then resort to stupidity to try and dismiss that which exposed said rubbish statement. I can, however, stand it when such people move out of a city that is superior in every way to the one they intend to move to.

Either that or I was baiting you. Boredom does that.

Why would I do that?

Except to change the light bulb.

Oh yeah, wrong thread…
