Are you a baby? Were you born yesterday? Do you like medals? The Government would like to give you one. A medal? Oh they’re like pretty round things that look nice. I don’t know what they taste like. Just get one, trust me.
Babies born on 12 March 2013, we’d like to hear about you. It was a double birthday: yours and
the city of Canberra.
