Punch on: Open thread 03/01/2011
A few talkers for the start of the working week.
1) If you live in Sydney or Brisbane: how great is this weather? If you live in Melbourne or Adelaide: I hope you’ve got the AC on, a bottle of water next to you and a personal servant to handfeed you grapes, because I hear it’s scorching. Suckers.
2) If Seinfeld had been on air in the early eighties, you’d bet the press would’ve been calling Queensland’s state government the Seinfeld administration if this story had came to light a little earlier: The Bjelke-Petersen cabinet spent time discussing whether toilet doors should uniformly swing inwards or outwards, some recently released records show.
Personally, I’m agnostic when it comes to this contentious debate. I just wish somebody would fix the second cubicle door in The Punch’s male bathroom. The lock has been broken for months and the door won’t stay shut! Bah humbug.
3) Please welcome back to The Punch the exceptionally talented Tory Maguire. A longtime newswoman, Tory has rejoined the team after some time off taking care of her young bub.
No, we have no idea how we’re going to incorporate all of us into The Punch Team headshot. If you’ve got an idea how to fit more than four people into an 80x80 pixel image all while they still resemble human beings, PLEASE let us know.
4) And finally, please welcome back each other for another year, because your Open Thread has resumed regular programming for 2012.
It’s Tuesday. What’s on your mind, folks?
