It’s been a while since last wrote – I’d love to say it’s because I’ve been busy searching for the cure for cancer, or learning German so I can speak to the in-laws, or finding a way to convert cane-toad flesh into a sustainable alternative energy source.

The truth is, I’ve been busy drinking, working, and watching the Australian Biggest Loser on tv.

I’ts not that I love The Biggest Loser – in fact I loathe the show. Who really wants to see a bunch of overweight, whiny, sweaty people in tight shorts? Just wonder down to Bondi Beach and look at any Brit baking in the sun and you can have your share of that.

Thanks to the Biggest Loser, I can now take my shirt off in public without getting arrested

It’s just that there is simply nothing else on Australian tv. The tv-powers that be have decided that the Australian public aren’t the most durable condoms in the packet and thrust brain-dead ‘reality-tv’ upon us every day (‘condoms’, ‘thrust’ – there must be something on my mind).

Watch ‘current affair’ programs on tv these days (especially Today Tonight) and you’d assume that we’re all about to die from swine-flu passed on to us from the Asian refugees that are arriving by the boatload every minute to take our jobs and lower our property values, the hospitals won’t be able to accommodate us because they are so full that pregnant women are having their babies in the waiting room, and the child that grows up anyway won’t be able to go to school because the conservatives under the previous evil regime had reserved all the good schools for the rich…and the Asians. But never mind, with fuel prices up 1100% in the last 45 years, you won’t be able to afford to drive them anyway.

But alas, never-mind because on tonight’s exclusive episode we uncover a real estate scam happening in your neighbourhood. Rich landlords refusing to re-paint tenant’s letterboxes. We reveal the hidden shocking truth and speak to real victims that are just like you.
