Sincere flattery from the Canberra Times

By johnboy 11 September 2012 25

In recent months it’s been intriguing to see the Canberra Times try to re-invent ageing warhorse Ian Warden as a sort of low-rent Johnboy.

But this morning’s excited piece of forced whimsy really brought on the deja vu.

A pity really that our piece from last year is rather better looking in my humble opinion.

We have been talking to an Octocopter crew and should have something rather special for you if the Floriade people will reply to recent correspondence.

So that’s what it feels like to choke on pork noodles.

Are you in fact Charlie Sheen? Because I have absolutely no idea what you are on about half the time.

I think that was WMC’s way of paying you a compliment. You made him laugh while eating pork noodles. Of course I could be as wrong as gay dwarves in school uniforms.

Ian Warden is beloved by baby boomers – the sort of people who still have the Canberra Times delivered to their front yard and go out and pick it up in their dressing gown. Of course many of these people probably don’t read the riotact and therefore he won’t be replaced because papers aren’t bought by young people any more.

BTW Johnboy I have always understood it to be very poor form to talk yourself up to the extent of suggesting another writer is a low rent version of yourself – regardless of how strongly you may hold that opinion. Just wait til Warden hears about this – the dressing gowns will be taking to the streets.

Well, this Boomer thinks Warden is a pretentious prick, and I much prefer RA to Warden’s prejudiced, vainglorious, meaningless rambling.
