    Shouldn’t that be “Anton Shuckoff”?

    I thought the original tune they had for Ashby was all Right?

    Let me take you down,
    ‘cos I’m going to Strawberry Feels.
    Nothing is real and nothing too well hungabout.
    Strawberry Feels forever.

    Living’s uneasy with flies closed,
    misunderstanding all you see.
    It’s getting hard to be someone but it all comes out,
    I don’t matter much to them ……

    I’ve always though Charity Fuchs would be a great name for a drag queen.

    Andybob, the Muck Raking Drongos have been honing their act all year and it appears they’re heavily booked for sellout performances in 2013.

    sings
    “I was a patsy in their plan,
    Now they say it’s me what done it.
    I’m labelled a vexatious man,
    The bad strawberry in the punnet,
    I wish I was loved and had fans,
    Like an endangered fat-tailed dunnart.
    But like all the rest of this gang,
    I’m not a mussel I’m a cun ‘t.

    Very nice Ern. An excerpt from the little performed second act of ‘Trial by Jury’ ? Somehow I can’t see the Judge offering to marry the Plaintiff.

    Julie Bishop revealed last night talking with La Crabb that she grew up on a Cherry Orchard, had Three Sisters, not sure if she had an Uncle Vanya, but perhaps we should start referring to her as The Seagull.
