Bush blokes battling

According to Mount Isa’s mayor, times are tough in the Australian bush at the moment, especially if you’re a hetero bloke living in the town.

This from BBC online…

The mayor of a remote Australian mining town has come under fire after saying
that female "ugly ducklings" might benefit from its shortage of women.

John Molony told a newspaper last week that "with five blokes to every
girl, may I suggest that beauty-disadvantaged women should proceed to Mount

The council has since been swamped with complaints from both men
and women.

But Mr Molony has refused to apologise for the remarks,
saying he was "telling it like it is" in the Queensland town.

With a supposed ratio of 5:1, I can’t help but wonder why Cr Molony hasn’t used the opportunity to sell the town’s man-tourism…just think about the $$$ that could be made from conducting tours for single gay men looking for their own ‘brokeback bloke’ holiday fling!

Clown boots

I came across this - would you trust a clown's advice?

Thai business quirk #1

I got my Thai business cards delivered today. One side English, the other Thai. My Thai name and title has more squiggles than an ABC children’s TV show.

His name means ‘small’ or ‘little bit’ in Thai.
