Co­conut heard of a father and daugh­ter who de­cided to spend their Sun­day sun­bathing and swim­ming around on the Reef. They chose to forego stinger suits af­ter Dad proudly pro­claimed he had some­thing bet­ter. “I’ve swum the wa­ters of the Great Bar­rier Reef for 30 years and haven’t been stung yet. A lit­tle bit of lo­cal knowl­edge is all you need,” he told his daugh­ter. It seemed the “lo­cal knowl­edge” prod­uct might have needed a bit of refining. Not even five min­utes af­ter step­ping into the wa­ter, Dad had two stings to the leg. Luck­ily for Dad it wasn’t an irukandji. Back to the work­shop he went. for Lent. Well it’s not like she can get to Dan Mur­phy’s any­way.
