Don’t know when, but a day’s gunna come

By johnboy - 6 August 2008 50

I have long believed that it was only a matter of time before the ABC’s Mark Carmody appeared on the evening news wearing a corsage bigger than his head.

Tonight he came close.

It’s just a matter of time I tell you.

What’s Your opinion?

You never have confirmed whether or not you are Mark Carmody, Ant.

Nice on the spot knowledge of the flower he was wearing by the way…

You buggers, you.

Mark Carmody is the best thing to hit ABC TV Canberra since sliced bread.

He is positive, personable, humorous, knowledgeable, confident (almost) – and Australian through and through!

He’s different, he’s unique, he’s local and he has an incredibly sunny disposition – pretty important for a weather presenter.

He dares to be different, on TV, night after night, and that takes guts (and talent).

Yeah, I like him.

I love watching him, Virginia really has no idea how to respond, and no one has any idea what he is going to say! Although she is doing better now than she used too.

Yah, there was a real “lemon lipped, stepped in sh*t” look on her face at first…

He’s excellent, I come away from cooking dinner to watch his bit. Apparently, the botanic gardens are donating his flower during the olympic period, so they might come up with a tree for him yet. I thought tonight’s thing was a callistemon but the closeup revealed a Hakea, and a pink one at that.

Carmody is awesome. JB, can we have him as the next entry in your “why the ACT is better…” series?

He’s great! So nice to hear non-‘received pronunciation’ on our ABC. Actually I think Virginia talks funny – she does that MALbourne thing.

Could we somehow arrange things so Carmondy becomes the ABC bloke in Singapore facing a caning and a nice long term behind bars? Please. Pretty please? Pretty please with sugar on it?

I’m still trying to decide whether Virginia is genuinely amused or merely laughing that someone can act like a bogan, tell bad jokes and get paid for it. Seriously, he is terrible on TV doing weather. He’s not a bad guy though so ABC, give him a better gig.

I guess it is her only possible response to his inane ramblings.

And have you noticed that Virginia giggles
like a schoolgirl at Mark’s closing quip ?
