Tell you who else wants slapping. Bloody John Laws. Carson the Queer Eye queen is here for the Melbourne Cup again today. Laws is a prick and a talkback radio person. He makes his living kicking the most powerless around. Takes a special kind of cowardice to do that and love yourself for it. His detractors call him the Talking Brillo Pad. Serves him right for having a dodgy hairpiece.
Anyways, I was going somewhere with this. Oh yeah. Carson. Last year when Carson was here handing out prizes for Cup fashions Laws hoed into him on his radio show. So I'm hoping Carson runs into the Talking Brillo Pad at Flemo (Flemington, where the Cup is run) and gives him a slap and knocks his hairpiece off in front of the TV cameras.
Yep, it's Cup day today. First Tuesday in November, Australia's most famous Tuesday, the Race That Stops a Nation, blah blah blah. We're all gripped by Diva fever and peeps are walking about in funny hats and talking about odds and trifectas and a bob (dollar) each way.
