Brief newslets

  • A mother, abetted by her own mother and two sisters, goaded her two toddlers into attacking each other with weapons, while filming the fight.
  • Doting grandmother, Carole Olver, said: “I didn’t see any harm in toughening them up — I done the same with my own children.”

    And Nanna done done a grand job of tuffenin’em up, eh what?


  • This bombshell is a potboiler of a story: “Hundreds of scientific papers and years of research could be thrown into doubt, for they may have been based on experiments carried out on the wrong leech.”

  • A blind pilot in a microlight aircraft is expected to touch down in Darwin this afternoon...”
  • ... or Katherine... or Berrimah... or Melville Island... or Noonambah...

Err, is the pilot actually blind, or just really drunk?

Aww, forget it ...

Either way, he's gunna land, as you suggest, somewhere.


Oh, the toddler-toughening mum and nanna should be put in a cage together. Gawd, some people shouldn't be allowed to breed, truly.

The blind pilot actually had a non-visually-impaired co-pilot, a detail I insensitively omitted in order to exploit the story for the sake of a cheap one-liner. I'm a bad blogger guy...

And oh yes, some people just don't deserve to have kids, eh? The calibre of the grandmother somewhat mitigates the behaviour of the mother and aunts - perhaps - but jeez, one has to draw a line at some point.

I'm rather fond of cheap one-liners.
