This is going straight to the Playroom

It doesn't take an engineer to realise that this site is challenging Keplers' first-class career strike rate in terms of published articles.  This is largely due to the fact that the Great Dwayne is now adding to the GDP of the Republic, while yours truly has been coming to grips with the beast that is GDA (a monster of a course for not in the now).  Our other part time contributor (renowned for his short pieces) was always going to have his hands full trying to keep the Dirty Whites (less commonly known as the Village People) from the relegation zone in the Super A league this year.

It is because of this low run-rate set by the top order (although I see that amends has sort have been made now!) that I have decided to try write a small piece on a weekly basis that will hopefully give you something to read when bored at work or varsity.  It will be called "This is going straight to the Playroom", borrowed and adapted from comfortably the best movie ever made, The Castle.

Basically it will be like a 'best of the week' thing..... something that I hear or read or come up with where I think (and I do think in an Aussie accent) "This is going straight to the playroom!"

First up a bit of black humor I enjoyed, especially topical albeit  bit old as there feud started a while back:

It's a very sad world we live in when Sir Paul McCartney and his wife are facing divorce and all anyone seems to want to do is make jokes about her false leg.  Personally, I think it's prosthetic.  News reports have confirmed that Paul McCartney has  separated from his wife Heather Mills-McCartney. Mrs Mills-McCartney is said to be distraught over the split.  "He has been my crutch for so long"! She said in an earlier briefing, "I have no idea why this has  happened, I'm really stumped"  "She's running around in circles", according to a close friend, "she will need all the support she can get. It's not like it's  easy to walk out on a relationship like this". 

It is not known whether a pre-nuptial agreement was signed prior to the marriage. Paul McCartney is one of the richest men in  the world, and  if an agreement has been signed it is believed that she won't have a leg to stand on.

Rumors abound over the split which have suggested that  infidelity may have been the cause. "She's terrible" a source stated,  "always trying to get her
leg over".  Another source has suggested that her battle with  alcoholism was the cause.  "Macca couldn't handle it anymore" a friend said, "he would  get home
at night and find her legless".

Many have attributed this to a problem which started with  the present that Paul bought her prior to the wedding. He gave her a new prosthetic leg for Christmas but that was just a stocking-filler.

These jokes are funny but lets spare a thought for Paul please. Now she has left him, he's going to struggle to find another  woman who can fill her shoe.

Will see you kids at Mowbray on Sunday Afternoon, and if you don't know who I am - I'm the guy holding the trophy.
