Scott Wickstein has revived Ken Parish’s excellent Troppo Armadillo, which may now be found here. This marks the 1,273rd time Ken has moved since mid-December; word on the street is he’s on the run from an illicit Darwin mudcrab syndicate.

OT: ABC "AM" (Sunday March 23?) said George Bush "used his weekly radio address to again steal his nation". For crying out loud! Isn't an election enough? http://www.abc.net.au/am/content/2003/s813984.htm

Don't look at me. I didn't help George. And the mudcrabbers have got the wrong bloke. Honest. I'm a lawyer. Would I lie? It's a nasty way to go, staked on a mudflat at low tide. If you don't drown, the crocs or the mudcrabs are bound to get you.

A few years ago a young Aboriginal bloke got stoned on gunja and fell asleep on a mudflat out in Arnhemland. The crocs beat the mudcrabs to him. I wonder if he woke up. And they say marijuana isn't harmful!
