THE KIRBY’S SPEECH

BUSHIE spies want to thank Small Business Minister Paul Kirby, who took it upon himself to use the Golden Plate Awards to deliver a six-billion word speech about how great the government has been through Covid19. The government should move a motion to make the speech count as one of the three sitting days lost due to our most recent lockdown.

HE’S A GOOD HEGGIE

STILL at the Golden Plate Awards, chief health officer Hugh Heggie was seen yelling, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry”, from his table at the reschedule­d Golden Plate awards. The reason? ABC host

Jo Laverty bringing up how the awards had been cancelled a fortnight earlier because of Darwin’s second lockdown – a decision Dr Heggie was responsibl­e for.

NOW WATCH ME WHIP

THE hotly contested race for Darwin’s Lord Mayor became steamy after candidate and former dominatrix Leah Potter congratula­ted Kon Vatskalis for his big win, by posting a teddy bear wearing bondage leather. The Facebook post was liked by another mayoral candidate, Laksa Queen Amye Un.

NOW WATCH ME NEIGH NEIGH

ANYONE who was visiting the Noonamah Tavern’s drive-through would have been forgiven for thinking they had just travelled back in time to an era before cars. A social media post making the rounds shows two men riding through the bottle-O on horseback. Yeehaww!

HOST GIVEN A HOSING DOWN

ABC stalwart Stewart Brash felt the burn when he brought firey Matt Wilson on to his Alice Springs breakfast show to ask how his team dealt with palm trees that caught alight when a firecracke­r was launched into the fronds. SB: How do you put something like that out? MW: Uhhh, we generally just spray it with water, mate.

XXXXXXXL MASK

DURING our recent lockdown, the

Australian Federal Police provided a helpful community service by posting a pic of a mask stretched right around the front of one of their red 4WDs. The pic accompanie­d an Instagram post about a man being fined at Darwin Airport for refusing to wear one. Best mask up when you’re required.
