Guess what. It’s Friday! And what’s the best thing to do on this marvellous day? Do our survey, of course!
Today is your very last chance to do our super fun survey. Ok, its not quite that fun, but we would really appreciate your input. After all, if you can’t tell the Punch what’s on your mind, who can you tell? So just click on this link and we’ll stop nagging you. There you go. It wasn’t too painful was it?
In saucier news, on this day in 1987, George Michael’s newly released single “I Want Your Sex” was banned by the BBC because of its raunchy lyrics and hot-n-heavy videoclip. It was later re-approved and eventually made it to number 3 on the British charts. We think it’s pretty tame by today’s standards actually.
Phew, it’s been a big week. Anything you need to get off your chest before the weekend?

We’re baaaack….Hello? Anyone there? We were just wondering if we could borrow a cup of sugar? Ok you caught us, we actually want you to do our survey. Now.
It’s around for a limited time only. So just click on this link and give us a piece of your mind. Go on, you know you want to!
Now we might be opening a can of worms with this one, but on this day in 1953, Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor officially became Queen Elizabeth II, the monarch of the British Commonwealth. Good show, old chap!
So do you think Will is fit to be King now that he’s tied the knot? And will Australia still be part of the Commonwealth by the time that happens?

It’s The Punch’s second birthday today. And we’d like to celebrate by offering you this free cupcake, on us. Just hook up to the new NBN, and Communications Minister Stephen Conroy has personally assured us it will pop out on your desk. Whammo! Just like that. That’s what $43 billion gets you, folks.
At the very real and somewhat enticing risk of provoking a snarky Crikey piece bagging our self-indulgence, we’ve thrown together a few thoughts on two years of The Punch below.
We’d also take this opportunity to remind those of you who have not yet done our survey to give it a go. It’s totally anonymous, and it’s all about giving you a say on the direction of your, and our, favourite opinion website.

And just for all you rev-heads, on this day in 1927 the very last Model T Ford rolled off the assembly line in Michigan, USA. This little beauty was the first car to be mass produced on an assembly line and was arguably the most influential automobile in history. What’s been the most influential car in your life? The little MG that broke-down on first dates? Or maybe your beloved VW Beetle that you managed to fit 10 university students in?
Have a whinge or have or a laugh… right here, right now!

And now for something completely different! Here’s your chance to tell us exactly what you think.
About The Punch, that is. Time for a bit of navel gazing. We want to know what you like, what you loathe, what you want more of or less of on this site. So please, pretty please, fill out our survey. It won’t take long, we promise!
In less self-involved news, on this day in 1972 the Official IRA declared a ceasefire. But the Provisional IRA said that would have “little effect”. Discuss. Or ignore entirely and talk about something else. It’s Monday - does the week ahead fill you with warm fuzzies or cold, hard loathing? Share here.
