The Canberra Times’ owlish quiz

Apparently the miscreant has been shown the door.

The Canberra Times last paying subscribers might want to hold onto their edition though, it’s going to be famous.

What’s Your opinion?

Why would they “bone” him? This is the biggest thing to come out of the Canberra Times.

I was just about to comment on the disappointing lack of sophomoric double entendres in the first few comments…
