Wife killers
A reader has suggested that apart from their long prison terms, men who kill their wives must not be allowed to get married again, or be seen with another woman. Harsh, but it will certainly make men think twice.
Strange bedfellows
The 19th century proverbial saying that politics makes strange bedfellows is ever so true today. MPs with differing political views sooner or later find a common ground to form alliances for their convenience. They do not last long however. By the way, adversity too makes strange bedfellows.
Smart vendors
Vendors are smart salespeople. For example, as soon as you step away from an ATM lobby after withdrawing your hard-earned cash, they shove into your face gadgets with prices that are too hard to resist. And not far behind them are the beggars requesting to be spared a toea or two. Yes, ypui cannot escape.
Ice cream thief
A female colleague dashed into the newsroom looking like she is going to die of thirst. She remembered the ice cream she had left in the fridge the previous day. She opened the fridge and searched franticly but alas it was gone. She was last seen walking around the office eyeballing everyone hoping to see who had that guilty look.
Hard done by
One cannot blame Francis Tokura for feeling hard done by the constabulary. They pulled him out of his Bougainville office two months ago to take over as police commissioner only to have the decision reversed. So unfair.
