TELL US what you re­ally think…

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Small Talk -

A hi­lar­i­ous no-holds-barred re­ac­tion from To­bias An­thony…

CHOPAN

(small town in In­dia): Cool, I guess. Pos­si­bly the place you dis­cov­ered that side of your­self. You know, the other side you couldn’t find in South Amer­ica.

GRAFF

Street art might be your life and your pas­sion, but now I’m se­ri­ously won­der­ing whether the fumes might have caused some per­ma­nent dam­age.

MA­SON

He’s a stone worker, or at least he used to be. But I’m sure your over-ed­u­cated and suit­ably un­der-em­ployed mid­dle-class gem will never have to don the hard hat.

OR­SON

Tell us more about your days at film school – please, we’re dy­ing to know. Ac­tu­ally, hang on a minute, I think I’d pre­fer to eat glass.

ZIGGY

She’s hip, she’s fly, she’s all of the out­dated terms I know for ‘cool’, but for good­ness sake, she’d bet­ter learn a mu­si­cal in­stru­ment or this will be a failed ex­per­i­ment.

Edited ex­tract from Hip­ster Baby Names by To­bias An­thony, (Si­mon & Schus­ter, $22.99).
