Stingrays Want Your Children + The Other AX

Oh for fuck's - 'revenge attacks' against stingrays? Yeah, because the evil stingray - which has an advanced level of consciousness that incorporates free will - knowingly and intricately plotted Steve Irwin's demise. In fact if the stingray hadn't have been stopped, it would have continued to murder annoying expatriate conservationists. It is a vicious, sociopathic serial killer, after all.

I'm pretty sure that Irwin himself would be repulsed by this behaviour if he were still around - but it says something about Irwin's appeal that the sort of mongo gorillas who've done this were part of his fanbase, doncha reckon?

Poor Adriana Obscenities. It looks as though she's set to Lose a Turn driving for 18 months and unless she finds a good money Spinner soon she may end up Bankrupt. If only she'd found a good charitable PR agency to give her some Free Spin, this might not have been such a Surprise and she may not have had to pay Top Dollar in court fees. At this rate she'll have no money left with which to Buy a Vowel. But remember Adriana - consonants are free!

This might be karma. I've still never forgiven Ads for the time she cut in front of me in line at a bank in Burnside Village (think Adelaide's Double Bay/Toorak, with all the accompanying blue rinses, gold jewellery and Range Rovers but about a sixth of the disposable income), using her 'charms' to sweet-talk the chap who ran the video store opposite into letting her jump in front of him (and therefore the rest of us).

Still, I can't help but feel sorry for her. And I think all these puns on her previous career when reporting her current situation - 'Fortune runs out of Xenides', 'Adriana's Wheel of Misfortune' etc - are just tacky and simplistic. I'd never lower myself to that.

Sam are you sure that last pic is Adie?

Now Sam "Star of the East" "refugee" from Adelaide. Whilst thou be sending a letter to the beloved Mike Rann, that you are a refugee from Adelaide to Sydney?
The more corrie Mikey gets, might bring him into the real world.

In SA. Apartheid lives!
I you are gay or lesbian.

I think you're right bazza - Mike only seems keen to want to 'bring back' the str8 SA emigrants - or, more likely given SA's apparent future, the ones who have degrees in nuclear engineering.

I still do my occasional email bit for LGE where I can.

I can see an e-bay war coming up with the sales of genuine 'this is the sting that killed our Steve'. It's the cynic in me, or rays are the new gays.

That is a bit harsh, Sam. Surely you wouldn't like to take credit for the postings of your followers, like me for instance?
