There’s a third porn suburb, as anyone who sees the makeshift “XXX” signs along the Monaro Highway will know: Hume.

I think Capital Tourism or whatever they’re called these days should be picking these slogans up for their next ad campaign that will get shown on our screens.

Canberra- we’re only here because Sydney and melbourne missed out.

Seriously, the writer has a good point, lycra clad bicycle wannabees are a classic. They are just so vain and so laughable.

Seriously, do you need to have all the best lycra gear to ride a bike? After all, its just a fucking bike!

And they just look so bad….
