Bill Bryson wandered up and down Northbourne looking for a feed and thought the place had no soul. He reluctantly ended up eating at the Rex and was inspired to come up with his slogan.

The funny thing is he would have wandered straight past places like Dickson with no idea they were there.

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….

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.
