Has anyone else noticed the very strange advertisement from a Moroccan journalist at the bottom of page 6 in today’s Canberra Times?
It seems to be a congratulations notice addressed to the Moroccan ambassador to Australia, on the occasion of the anniversary of the King of Morocco’s enthronement, from a Moroccan journalist, and it ends “…heartfelt congratulations for this glorious and happy Thorne day.”
Is this ad a code for something else? Does it appear in other newspapers today? Will there be others placed by other Moroccan journalists? And what’s a Thorne day?
Very strange indeed!
UPDATE: Readers will be thrilled to learn that this post has attracted attention in Morocco.
