Russell Crowe, has used late-night talk show Letterman to take a pot shot at Federal Environment Minister Peter Garrett over the fate of a wildlife reserve dedicated to the late Steve Irwin. Crikey!
Russell Crowe known as the Reverse Elvis – Elvis made great music and terrible movies is perhaps also a Reverse Garrett. Garrett has great music and terrible environmental ideas, Crowe has great environmental ideas and music that whales would harpoon themselves if they heard.
Russell Crowe attempted to contact Garrett on the phone, and has launched an online petition for people to sign. He has also encouraged others to ‘hit the phones, hit them hard, hit them like you’re in a Californian Hotel and the reception clerk is giving you attitude’.
Garrett released a comment saying that it is true he invited Crowe to a engage in a phone conversation but did not use the words, “Call me King of the Mountain”,
The Mayor of the Sutherland Shire, Carol Provan is strongly opposed to a reality series being filmed in the area. Channel 10 begins filming today on their new TV series ‘The Shire’. ‘I’m just afraid they are going to paint us in a bad light’, stated Ms Provan, ‘by filming people who live here and letting them talk’. Ms Provan stated that her opposition stems mostly from the unfair criticism that exists of the Sutherland Shire and that ‘there is nothing here for the young people to do’. As a Council we are doing a lot in the area reaching out teenagers, Ms Provan stated, “for instance we’ve just built three new maternity wings”.
Former Premier Anna Bligh who resigned when her party experienced the worst election result in Australian history has been asked to return as Labor leader. “Sure it’s true that we created this disaster”, stated Ms Bligh “but this is also my time to shine”. Ms Bligh was praised for her strong and steady leadership of Queensland through deadly flooding and the disaster of Cyclone Yasi last year. “If I led so well during the worst cyclone in ten years, then I’m the right person to lead during the worst landslide in a hundred”, she stated during a press conference, which she later set on fire.
GUCCI – the highly successful global fashion house have branched out into baby fashion. Targeting celebrity parents GUCCI hopes to be the premier supplier of high end haute-couture to the under 2′s and their fashion-conscious parents. While normally the domain of retailers such as Baby-Gap, GUCCI believes kids clothing can be more glamourous and more expensive.
The other great thing about our range of clothing, says GUCCI spokesperson Gloria Fionetti is that they are made by kids for kids. We employ – not directly – a number of factories of Philippino ‘fashion creators’ who are under 10, to do the majority of our sewing and material cutting. It’s like a really cute third world Project Runway.
The GUCCI GOO range will be available this Christmas.
For over a decade Arthur Mankton has maintained that when he was at school there was a fellow student named Roy G. Biv. It was, he says, because of the letters of his name that Mr Mankton was able to remember the names and order of the colours of the rainbow.
Recently it has come to light that Mankton has perpetrated a fraud to both his family, friends and wider neighbourhood. His grandson revealed that he became suspicious when he was talking to Brian Jefferson, his girlfriend’s grandfather, who stated that he too attended school with Roy G. Biv.
Intrigued by this coincidence Stuart Mankton was surprised to learn that Arthur and Brian had not attended the same school. When pressed, Jefferson admitted that he was lying.
Yesterday, Stuart Mankton questioned his grandfather about his claims. “Rainbows?” he replied “Who cares, the gays own it now, anyway!”.
Controversy surrounds R&B artist B.Ezy after he released a song containing no allusions to sex.
There was no mention of ‘getting jiggy with it’, ‘slappin’ thighs’, ‘riding my pony’ or ‘freakin’.
Also flying in the face of convention, words such as ‘ride’, ‘nine’, ‘bling, bling’ and the term ‘put your hands up in the air’, were noticeably absent.
Instead his song tells a story about a quiet, young man, who occasionally has trouble talking to girls.
His album ’12 Inches of Ezy’ is available May 1st.

Federal government MP James McAvery said he felt misled the political lobby group Free Tibet, were interested in autonomy for their nation and not a group offering all-expenses trips to Asia.
Figures out this week show that one in four federal MPs have accepted free overseas travel worth hundreds of thousands of dollars from foreign governments, private companies and lobby groups in the 16 months since the last election.
Politicians from all parties have taken 109 trips overseas, often going business or first class, with the most popular country being China.
McAvery said that “it’s so common, we refer to it as going on a ‘Chinese Junket’ “. He added “a number of politicians have been disappointed that Free Tibet is not a junket but a political organisation, something really should be done about the ethics of this”.
Professor Albert Winston, of the University of Sydney’s Centre for Democracy predicts that change will occur. He says “we need to have clarity and transparency in the names of our lobby groups. A name like Free Tibet is just too confusing.” Dr Winston say he considers “politicians travel to be important for Australia. The MPs are racking up more frequent flyer points than Hell’s Angels on their way to a bikie beat-down.”
