Skywhale keeps giving

How could we not direct your attention, dear reader, to an article titled “The Ten Most Wonderful Things Committed To Hansard as a Result of the Skywhale”.

It’s worth mentioning such tech luminaries as Jzw and Cory Doctorow have now blogged about skywhale.

The full list of Google News results is staggering.

All hail Skywhale.

Jeremy Lasek gave the Canberra Symphony Orchestra a huge bagging this morning on 2CC when he was trying to defend Skywhale. He said that the Skywhale had brought international recognition to Canberra, and that “CNN and the BBC didn’t bother with the Canberra Symphony”. Ouch!

I keep hearing talk about this national public ridicule and humiliation but I haven’t actually seen any of it yet – haven’t heard any Canberra is boring talk this week either.

Why the hell isn’t it branded? At least the basket! The only centenary element that gets actual exposure worldwide has no visual mention of Canberra. Sigh.

Mr Lasek obviously didn’t think to put it in the contract, however I see we’re contracted to pay around a $150,000 for social media, education resources and travel. A comment following the CT article “Drawn to Archer vision, artist cut fee” yesterday, suggests the contract with the operator has an element of “mate ship” about it. Amid all the whale wash Skywhale is gaining an odour !

Two blogs and some daft questions in the Legi? Wow, for $300,000 I will give you much more “outside the comfort zone thinking” and mindless net chatter.

6. “MR WALL: Chief Minister, given the current level of national public ridicule of the centenary balloon, what strategies does your government have in place to counter that ridicule?”

Erm…we could put a hat on it? Or a fetching blouse? Or maybe build an even stupider balloon and pretend Queensland did it? Work with me, people.
Gold. 24 karat gold. 😀

Mr HANSON: Is it a she or is it an it? Does it live?

MS GALLAGHER: Mr Hanson, you have a look at the Skywhale. I presume it is a she.

Oh, that is some really good shazam right there.

Hasn’t the CM heard of man-boobs?
