Olivia responds to Mt Tucker?

johnboy 16 November 2010 29

Steve Tucker’s ill advised email to all staff at DIAC. Has kicked off his 15 minutes of fame. News outlets as far afield as the Kansas City Star are taking an interest in his quest for love.

And here you might have noticed the site running bumpy under the load of interest.

Well here’s the visits graph:

mt tucker

He’s no Joel Monaghan, but it’s a hell of a leap to fame.

Against this background someone claiming to be Olivia, the object of Steve’s affections, has logged on and posted this bad news for Steve:

    Hi Steve, it’s Olivia here. Sorry I don’t remember you.

    Your only hope is if I gave you one of my tickets. I gave out over two hundred on Saturday night so don’t feel too special. have a look in your shirt pocket, that’s where I slip them in if I allow you to get close enough.

    No ticket? Sorry, have a good life anyway!

Can any of our younger female readers explain the ticket system?

I checked today’s Canberra Times for any letters regarding the Ballad of Steve Tucker. Didn’t see any, but if Pope’s cartoon regarding the affair doesn’t get into this weekend’s ABC Insiders’ Talking Pictures, it’ll prove those guys have no sense of humour!

It seems that the email was originally forwarded on 1100 times to external addresses. I don’t know if this was 1100 individuals that forwarded it, or 1100 delivery instances, but either way, that’s some great adherance to policy.

Source is an internal contact in Immigration.

Who also forwarded the email on to me!

Mwahahahahahaha!

Olivia’s not an odd name, and I bet this is a shallower instance of the Olivia class. It’s not an obvious joke, it’s a genuine fool who thinks she must be the object of the email because she has the same name.

Olivia has appeared in the Bollywood thread commenting on road rules. Olivia has referenced an archaic dancing ticket system used during the war. My guess would be Olivia is a granddad, from the pool of driving thread trolls. They might try perverting the thread with talk of the town bike disturbing their morning troll.

I was wondering how long it would take! One gold star.

I think its a case of He is and She isn’t. If she was, then this would all have not come about… Shame really…..

I wonder if people can redeem Olivia tickets for cash? Or they’re only good for one ride?

Is Mt Tucker somewhere near Mt Ainslie?

I think it is more of a direction as opposed to a location.

The big question is – was the party any good?

thought more or less the same thing…

Maybe she was one of the organisers and was working the door. She gave out many tickets (but most recipients didn’t stalk her)?

I immediately assumed that post was a pisstake. Maybe I have a strange sense of humour?

I thought I read on one of the papers’ websites yesterday sourcing the reports that Olivia didn’t remember him to a Canberra radio station that got her on the phone, but maybe they were referring to Ray.

I don’t think he wanted to dance…

He wanted to “dance”.

I don’t think that it’s real.

If it is, could it be that she was a promo girl and handed out promotion vouchers for something?

Righto, looks like I might owe my wife whatever the prize was on this bet, she’s been insisting from the outset it was a publicity hoax in the line of the Sydney Jacket scam or the chk-chk-boom girl.

This whole thing going to end in a promotion of an end of year ball/dance party/concert or something?

fgzk fgzk 6:57 am 17 Nov 10

Olivia must be true, as the 7pm Project quoted last night that Olivia could not remember Steve. I wonder where they got that from. Verification.

    Ray Hadley on Sydney radio had some contact with a friend of olivia.

Oh yeah, a ticket means a dance ticket, and you get one to dance with a particular partner.
