Overheard … any clues?

By I-filed - 22 September 2008 31

Overheard at the counter at Tilleys today:

” … if it goes into double digits, Mount Ainslie will be cleared and then …” (then the background noise got too loud to hear any more)

The speaker was a man about 5’9″, fairly thin, swarthy, curly greying dark hair cropped short, wearing a cheap pinstriped suit (or a suit he paid too much for).

His companion was a young woman, looked like his secretary perhaps, wearing a cinched-in grey cardigan and with blond tips in her hair.

I didn’t hear any more. Any clues? Something to do with the NCA’s demise? Is Mt Ainslie’s protection from development under threat? What could ‘double digits’ refer to? Election talk?

What’s Your opinion?

> I thought it was I-filed, not overheard??

I think it’s a joke in reference to “Overheard at the counter at Tilleys today: “

Double digits – clearly global warming.
Mt Ainslie being cleared – the reverse of the tree-line as desertification creeps across our landscape, as with double digit temperature increases, clearly only the Alps will have trees left…

And Overheard – what you doing in Tilleys?

Overheard,
International Court of Arbor-tration?
That’s truly offal!

For years, I have been speculating that if Australia continues to get into more and more ‘mini-wars’, as per the Howard years, we’ll need to extend Anzac Avenue either into Lake Burley Griffin, or demolish the War Memorial, and Mount Ainslie, to fit all the extra memorials we’d need.
It sounds like preparations are under way for this evntuality.

what if it doesn’t go into double digits?

Then Mount Ainslie will be ‘cleared’ by the International Court of Arbor-tration.

Who, me?!

Actually I’m almost there with a theory but it needs more work, offal style.

Film at 11.

> Obviously they are talking about a coming alien invasion….

It’s the only logical conclusion. Mt Ainslie is the landing point. Double digits refers to the readings from the alien landing detection equipment.

Obviously they are talking about a coming alien invasion….
