A stand-up Cartoonist.

Doesn't really matter if you know the story behind the cartoon, grrh, I suppose it might help.
A bunch of entertainers, in this case, entertainer is defined on the broadest possible terms, including Tania Zaetta from 'Who Dares Win' fame (???) were sent to Iraq and Afghanistan to cheer up the troops. Anywho, a memo was leaked that claimed that she had sex with some of our fine SAS boys while OS. She denies the claims and why wouldn't she!
So, to the cartoon from the Advertiser, Fri 23/5/08. Now could Valdman include any more phallic imagery in this funny, funny, funny, god, I'm exhausted, funny cartoon?
One phallis may have got the point across, but I can count at least four and you may be able to do better.
So, spot the dick.
No, not Rupert.

The Day Train.

I’m sure the State Government and various other parties are keen to vamp up the life-blood of Hindley Street and the West End precinct. Well, how about building a comfortable amphitheatre in Light Square and putting on a free production every afternoon? Firstly, it would be great calling card for Adelaide, at no real extravagant cost; a year-round open theatre would also be a great training ground for young/aspiring actors and provide a venue for schools to send their students to enjoy professional productions. The content, of course, would need to be gleaned from the classics: W. Shakespeare, H. Ibsen, T. Williams, R Kalinowski, A. Miller, and D. Williamson . . .

I think such an undertaking would be a way to maintain a permanent standing as the Arts capital of Australia and really add to the daily cultural life of the city.

P.S. Can something be done about the right turning light from Montefiore Rd onto War Memorial Drive? Ridiculous.
