The SMH is reporting (with photo) that climate change scientists, in Canberra for the 17th Australia New Zealand Climate Change Forum, were disgusted at the forum dinner where a balloon clad ladies entertained the wild boys.
One of these wild men commented that the entertainment was ‘a series of women on stage dressed in almost nothing making jokes about being ridden’
Many stormed out, possibly to Mitchell or Fyshwick, whilst allegedly ‘a woman covered in balloons started prancing around as delirious male scientists popped them with a pin,”
Oh those wild climate change boys. What has happen to our morals…..
UPDATED: AAP, via News, has more on the public fallout of this sorry incident. Professor Mike Hutchinson from the Centre for Resource and Environment Studies at the Australian National University has been named as the man responsible and will be feeling a bit sore and sorry this morning. The reliably weird Rebecca Gale (who thinks teaching burlesque is good psychotherapy) has tried to justify her perforance thusly:
“her balloon dance was only a bit of traditional satirical burlesque “bump, grind and shimmy,” with no nudity.”
I wonder what it was satirising?
