June was only sixteen, only sixteen...

Ahhh, comedian Ross Noble's balls are on fire..... a guy who opens his mouth and says what some of us would love to let rip.....bliss....
No, I tell a lie.
Bliss is when Paul McDermott used to do the brekkie show with sex god Mikey Robbins on Triple J and his acerbic wit would rip me from my gentle slumber to face the day with a gut busting laugh with his deepest and darkest sarcastic humour.
Or when he didn't realise the middle kid in pop group Hanson was a he...not a she.
Oops!

1828 The Hobart Town Crier was wailing about convict servant Mary Ann Jarvis - a saucy lass if ever there be one - who was charged with insolence and intoxication *horrors*.
After being sentenced to work in the Female Factory two men, who obviously greatly appreciated the charms of Mary Ann, attacked the Constable and the chickybabe prisoner was off like a frog in a sock.

1840 The New Zealand Advertiser and Bay of Islands Gazette carried a letter from a Colonist who rhapsodised about the beauty of the Bay of Islands...somehow he was in no danger of ailing from homesickness.

1860 The Moreton Bay Courier shared some gruesome tales with its readers; one about a prankster who strung himself up as a fright for his co-workers...who didn't find him until he was well and truly dead, the other about a chap who had survived a bullet to the noggin almost 12 mths earlier but *surprisingly* upped and died suddenly.
Dreadful, the way men are just leaving their employers in the lurch like that....

1889 The South Australian Advertiser was bleating about 3 randy old rams that had been running amok until being impounded and were to be offered for sale.

1920 The Grey River Argus proclaimed that the bottom had been kicked out of the tinned meat trade with employees of the Eltham Bacon Company having been paid off.
Mr AG Bignell of Wanganui thought that "Sydney seems to have a race day practically every day of the week,".
Mr Bignell if you think it's bad imagine how the horses feel!

Yep...that would have frightened 'em, I reckon. It wasn't David Carradine, was it?

"...prankster who strung himself up..."
I wonder what his last thoughts were?
"I wish they'd hurry up and find me, I can't hang around here much longer..."

I wonder what the Hanson boys are doing now. What was the name of that song that swept the charts? I knew it so well, I could sing along with the tape I'd made. Now I can't even remember what it was called.

LOL River.

Hmm Bop was the song title but no idea what they're up to now.
