607 – media quickie
Alarm bells really rung when he delivered this statement today:
"I was shocked to read in today's Age statements from a person accusing me of the most horrible crimes that are totally against all the moral and religious values I believe in”
Moral and religious values. What, like a priest?
Or his brother, the first minister in the State parliament to be jailed.
Then there was the actress who I had til now respected, whose turned up in full page ads implying how good and healthy the world’s leading fizzy drink is. I’m guessing her life mightn’t be a bed of roses with her last teleseries being no “Sea Change” but it made me sad to see such a quirky, talented woman sell out like that.
But I’m nowhere near as mad as the Australian Dental Association who take umbrage with the same ad that says that it’s a myth that the aforementioned fizzy drink rots your teeth. Heck if it can clean off grease, how can it not eat away at your dental enamel too?
The only people I know who drink the stuff habitually haven’t many of their own teeth left. But I suppose we’d need a double blind, placebo controlled trial to prove the connection.
Shonky politicians, lying multinationals, paedophile priests all in the same post – I was having a bad day but must admit I feel much better now.
