Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

So the new blonde lass to the trop­ics and her lit­tle fam­ily, got quite a trop­i­cal sur­prise in her back­yard this week. While sit­ting out­side, en­joy­ing the seren­ity, her fam­ily wit­nessed a green tree frog, also en­joy­ing the seren­ity high up in a tree, sud­denly at­tacked by a large green tree snake. The green frog was los­ing the fight, when a mag­pie then at­tacked the green snake. The now un­der at­tack snake let go of the poor frog, which dropped safely into the pool. The snake was then dropped by the mag­pie, with a rather large splat, bleed­ing and bro­ken onto a pool deck­ing chair. Ap­par­ently, liv­ing in the trop­ics is like a David At­ten­bor­ough re­al­ity TV show ..... Cause the EFTPOS don’t work and there’s no cash around, The sto­ries abound! You see, we’ve taken you off­line this year.

We did try to warn with a prior email But the damned thing’s broke, And the net’s up in smoke, So our mes­sage did sod all but fail It’s caused quite a fuss No need to thank us! You’re all go­ing off­line for Christ-mus! Wonga Servo on Satur­day af­ter­noon. She’d bought some petrol but then dis­cov­ered the EFTPOS was down and she had no cash to pay for it. Co­conut is in­spired to hear of a kindly old soul who pro­ferred the dough to solve the prob­lem and get her on her way again. Thanks, good sir.

For­tu­nately it could never hap­pen here: Mon­treal's sad Christ­mas tree has touched off a scan­dal. It was a dirty brown, fes­tooned in a tyre com­pany’s logo and was oddly trun­cated at the top!
