Sooo should of entered!

Sad to see that Joel’s father has turned to drugs to help deal with his problems…

This award goes to filthy Bob for outstanding achievement in the field of excellence for a severe heroin habit. Unfortunately Bob couldn’t be here tonight as..well..he is an unreliable junkie. Also, owner of the red Corolla numberplate yxz 836. Your car has been broken into. Please turn off the alarm.

Surely that guy with the 14th DUI should get an honourable mention!

No, they have won awards for promoting such things as “harm minimisation” to drug and alcohol users.

“The Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Association ACT initiated the awards to recognise, promote and reward outstanding practice in the alcohol and other drugs (AOD) field in the territory.”

So what have they won awards for? Being intoxicated?
