Survival of the Slacker

by duncanr

forget ‘survival of the fittest’ – maybe, just maybe, Darwin overlooked the possible evolutionary advantage of being a lazy bugger –

[of course, the slacker strategy only confers an evolutionary advantage if the lazy buggers can summon enough energy to get off their fat arses for a bit of ‘how’s your father’ with the opposite sex and pass on their genes to the next generation]

The 7 month old rhesus macaque escaped from it’s cage in the back of it’s owner’s car while they were shopping and went off exploring on it’s own.

Animal Service were called out and Darwin, as they have named him, has been taken into care while they find him a suitable home.

[the owners have been fined – it being illegal in Canada to keep macaques as pets]

Coitus Interruptus

by duncanr

An 18 yr old woman in Darwin has suffered injuries to her spine and pelvis following sexual intercourse.

And no, it wasn’t ‘rough’ sex

She had climbed over the fence on the Esplanade in Darwin city centre to indulge in a bit of al fresco fun when her brother came upon her.

Caught in the act, the woman jumped up, took a step backward, and tumbled 15m down the cliff.

[Hhmm, I guess this was not the sort of climax she was expecting when she hoped ‘the earth would move for her’ ?]

Wasn’t expecting that !!!

by duncanr

A water aerobics class in Darwin was postponed when an uninvited guest entered the pool.

When attendants went down to prepare the pool before the class commenced, they found a croc swimming in the water.

A spokesperson said –

‘none of the women were keen to start the class at the scheduled time’

Wimps !!!

Betcha Loon wouldn’t have been scared by an itsy bitsy croc 😉

NT Illegal Immigrant Alert

by duncanr

One like this

Residents of Darwin have been advised to be on the look out for an illegal immigrant.

He, or she (sex is not certain) was spotted in the early hours of this morning crossing in front of a bus.

Police are advising the public to be alert but not to approach the immigrant – warning he (or she) may be aggressive.

Instead, just report any sightings to the Police and leave them to apprehend the immigrant – or await the arrival of a crack team of USA Baptists !!! 😉
