THIS WEEK IN OZ 21 MAY
This week as far as things go aeronautical, it was avian orientated, all Virgins week it seems, top of the pops with human remains smurfs and dutifully reported all over Oz. At least it reminds the punters that there is another way to go than by road and is still the best way to avoid the lost city at the circle maze at about 14910E and 3520S.
Classically trained readers will of course remember the wise words of Caius Petronius some time ago about the splendid benefits of reorganisation and thus Roo lovers sadly had to contend with an engagement survey. We know that 'surveys' are special reports produced by people who know nothing, but measure up the people who do something and so prove that by doing nothing they are doing something, thus generally finding a way to fit you in the exit mouldings marked 'new economy'. Like all riveting corporate publishing efforts and in keeping with our new blue bean universe, the beans are all added and listed and totalled, spiralled, bunted and rolled in a dazzling display that would be the envy of the players at the world aerobatic championships but stubbornly remain beans. The fact that all over lovely OZ, aeroplane beans with beanied crews and bean fuel and baked bean passengers and or boxes of beans travelled from one place to another place several times during the course of the rotation of the planet and it all worked seems to escape the HR smurfs and bean lovers.
At the Big Top little craigie was given the spotlight in the ring by MC Albo who also was engaged in fitting a gag to Prissy Pyne who had apolexy of some sort about little craigie. It seems the time to consider the location of emergency exits in Circus tents for some though, especially little craigie. As no marketing guru has yet found a symbol, design or form of understandable words other than 'strong, big or new' to describe the Circus program and entertainment it was given to little craigie to take a shower after a very severe freckling and talk about dung patties. Little craigie in keeping with new labour fell to copying from the arts and film and thus readers were given little craigies rendition of the script from "To Kill a Mockingbird" to entertain as the spotlight spun his way. It was an amazing performance with little craigie attempting to play both Atticus Finch and Tom Robinson and the HSU the victim. As little craigie has a few 'issues' to manage that may involve the long arm of the law, to wit, your nicked mate, we reckon he has, in true labour style, mistaken Harper Lee's great text to be the required reading for Criminal Law 101. Anyway it was all bollocks.
A long time OZ supporter of things aeronautical who lives in the Big Apple was finding the headwinds and turbulence hard going over in the UK due to devious and amoral press goings on, now, who would have ever thought that, one thing is for certain his dear old mum at Cruden thought they printed newspapers not freckling patties from Circus freaks and what the hell were he and Wendy going to do with all those elephant patties they now had to get rid of. A sigh of relief from all Oz aviators that Rupert no longer has a share in the local aerial acts and would not be inclined to get HR to bundle everyone up in sheets of the News of the World and point them at the new economy exits.
Europe remains europe, China China and Putin can do everything.
Til next week, keep dodging the bollocks.
