The week that was involved two male vultures creating life, another in Washington DC risking all life and we gazed back at the Mabo decision, and our commonwealth since.
One week closer to the pit. Hoorah. The week that was, featured some CIA secrets, the passing of a cartoonist and Pizza Hut bringing the ’90s back. Again.
We’re taking a week off Trump, but it was still a week to forget. Tony Abbott returned to rock the boat, and a Michelin star was mistakenly awarded. But NASA discovered a system of Earth-like planets, so there’s still hope.
Somehow we survived it: last week saw the first of Trump, our contentious national day, and a cabal of scientists claiming we’re a bit closer to annihilation.
The week that was, was one of closure. Baird took his bow and Trump took his oath. Also, moth testicles.
One week closer to Trump, and seemingly the edge of reason. The week that flew by also featured Pauline cleaning house and a radical new way to love your job. Don’t ask…
Accidental home ownership, a village missing its idiot, Centrelink on how to deal with people in crisis and an intercontinental Presidential romance. So 2017 is off to a great start?
Happy 2017! Just a quick reminder, 2016 wasn’t that far away, and despite the ‘new year, new me’ euphoria, here’s a heavy grain of salt to add to your hangover. Sorry.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. For those looking for a dash of reality on the grandest day of all, here’s what happened in the week that was.
An impeachment of a world leader, the completion of a business deal, and Sofía Vergara sued by her own embryos. Standard.
In the week that was: Tragedy as a bullied teen took his life in Queensland, our most wanted terrorist arrested in Turkey and Pauline Hanson took a swim to disprove coral bleaching.
What an end to a week. Death for breakfast, be it the same-sex marriage plebiscite, a cherished warrior poet, or all of us on social media.
What a terrible week. We had the FBI reopen the Hillary email investigation, the Dreamworld situation got ugly, but a Golden Retriever made the most of it. Let’s elect her.
What strange a week it was. Two right wingers were in the spotlight, both collectively written off. Which impossible task would you rather, the NBN or the White House?
What a historic week it was. Hillary Clinton secured the nomination, the juvenile detention system was exposed and McDonald’s introduced the walk-thru window for drunks.
Europe once again heard the doorbell of terrorism on its doorstep, the UK continues to get worse post Brexit, and Australia voted, but we don’t have a leader.
God, what a horrible week. Orlando, Jo Cox, and Bob Katter, but at least a Rabbi bought everyone a round in the name of humanity. Well played, him.
Today is Sunday. This means we’ve survived another week of life, an experience made worse by Brock Turner and the man who took his best game to prom. Dearie me.
Oh, the week that was. The refugee team has been confirmed for Rio, Shorten hardens in the PM race, and we farewell a giant.
