"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
Sad story, except for the 8 beers.
Did the reporter really intend to juxtapose the chicken in the microwave with 'the authorities suspect foul play'?
I'm sure it was natural causes, namely a spider carried them both 50 miles into the bush.
The article struck me as a bit tongue in cheek; which struck me as a bit rough, considering a guy is missing and possibly murdered.I'm surprised he didn't mention a country redneck(or "bogan" in Ozzie-speak) playing the banjo or didgeridoo on the front porch.I reckon the author really did deliberately juxtapose the chicken in microwave with "the authorities suspect foul play".The only reason the giant, twelve foot wide, funnel-web spider didn't carry off the chicken in the microwave as well, is that giant funnel-web spiders don't have opposable legs to open microwave ovens.
Yeah, it's the NYT, trying to glean comedy from a possible murder. Classy, as always.
What about the dog?
