What the . . . ?

So Cracker Jack Pad­dle Sports owner Ja­clyn Ni­choll was out do­ing her thing on the is­lands of the Dampier Ar­chi­pel­ago last week­end, teach­ing kids how to suck the guts out of life, when her crew stum­bled upon the last thing you would ever ex­pect to find off the Pil­bara coast.

Yes, we are talk­ing about a gi­ant me­chan­i­cal pen­guin.

We will let the pic­ture do the talk­ing.

You are in the pres­ence of Alan­nah MacTier­nan: Min­is­ter for Re­gional De­vel­op­ment, Food and Agri­cul­ture; As­sis­tant Min­is­ter for State De­vel­op­ment, Jobs and Trade; and al­legedly, the Min­is­ter for De­struc­tion.

Last week, North West Cen­tral MLA Vince Cata­nia la­belled the La­bor stal­wart the min­is­ter for de­struc­tion, re­fer­ring to the changes made to Roy­al­ties for Re­gions.

With so many ti­tles, it is be­com­ing more likely we could be see­ing her drop­ping into Wes­teros for the fi­nal Game of Thrones sea­son.

Her witty re­torts would fit right in at Kings Land­ing.
