Anyone know what street it happened in?

Teal coloured?? What colour is Teal? And furthermore, at 11:15pm presumably in the dark, how does someone identify a car as being Teal coloured?

True to form illiterate police press release. IS asked, numpty – anyone is singular.


Anyone in this case is referring to more than one person who may be able to assist. Therefore the ‘are’ is referring to a they (plural).

bigger sigh and roll my eyes.

Proofread people!

Adapted from an old RAAF joke about officer cadets.

No offence (pun intended, but that’s another joke altogether) against any constables…
