Back to Canberra

By now I am well on my way back to Canberra.

I am looking forward to returning to Canberra and seeing Nattie and the rest of the family again for the first time in two weeks, and it will be very nice to not have to think about Fairfax for a while.

Friday Funnies: Widow

It’s an awful joke, but none the less it is courtesy of 2QN’s Paul Dix

Three guys were working on a high-rise building project – Steve, Bruce and Kevin.

Steve falls off and is killed instantly.

As the ambulance takes the body away, Bruce says, “Someone should go and tell his wife.”

Kevin says, “OK, I’m pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I’ll do it.”

Two hours later, he comes back carrying a slab of VB.

Bruce says, “Where did you get that, Kev?”

“Steve’s wife gave it to me,”

Bruce replies. “That’s unbelievable, you told the lady her husband was dead and she gave you the beer?”

“Well not exactly,” Kevin said. “When she answered the door, I said to her, ‘You must be Steve’s widow’.

She said, ‘No, I’m not a widow’, and I said, ‘I’ll bet you a slab of VB you are’.”

Awful, but good for a chuckle.

New word: Majoritily

A new word has been invented and said twice in Fairfax’s 6am pre-feed news today: “majoritily”.

Apparently General Motors will be majoritily owned by the US government.

It looks like Rush Limbaugh was right, it is “Government Motors”.
