The CT is reporting that there may be a re-incarnation of the birdman rally for next years Canberra Festival.
ACT Chief Minister Jon Stanhope has pledged to be the first person to fly off a ramp into Lake Burley Griffin if a planned revival of the infamous Birdman Rally goes ahead for next year’s Celebrate Canberra Festival.
It goes on to say:
Festival-goer and grandmother Diane Davis said she looked forward to seeing Mr Stanhope catapult into the water.
“I’ll help push him,” she said.
Makes me wonder how many people will be lining up to:
(a)Fly (read fall) into the blue green infested cess pit, and
(b)Push Standope into said cess pit.
UPDATED: Bill Stefaniak is all fired up to give it a go. Dangerous as the lean Chief Minister is going to have some real advanatages over the more solidly built opposition leader.
