Sometimes I cringe at the absurdity of Australian news items.
While the East Coast of the U.S.A is bracing itself for one of the most terrifying natural disasters which will hit its shores in the next two hours, we in Australia have announced that our natural rock wombat numbers are going to increase by 20% today.
Apparently, 8 rock wombats (little furry animals) will be released into the wild today. This announcement was made this morning straight after the Hurricane Sandy news.
I have no idea what a rock wombat is and I have no objection to its release into the wild. Let it run free for all I care.
All I can do is shake my head in disbelief at this bit of trivia that could not wait.
We certainly live in a very lucky country, don’t we?
