Giant slayers
Tonga has finally ended the dominance of Australia, England and New Zealand in rugby league. The island kingdom team beat all the three league giants in the Oceania Cup competition. Step up, the Kumuls.
Bad losers
It was a disappointing and pitiful sight when the England players refused to wear their runner-up medals after being thrashed 32-12 by South Africa in the World Cup final in Japan on Saturday. Such sore losers.
Ahead of time
People in one of our Melanesian island neighbours all woke up yesterday “one hour late”. What happened was that the telecom company mistakenly put forward the time by one hour to mark the start of daylight saving. In fact, daylight saving should be starting next Sunday Nov 10.
Dogs galore
There are so many dogs in Port Moresby that authorities led by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are planning a major de-sexing programme starting this month. An unofficial census estimates the canine population to be around 100,000. They too seem to be multiplying like rabbits, so to speak.
Wrong day
Pastor who has been noticing certain church members missing from the Sunday service decided to check their favourite hangout after service. Sure enough they were still partying from Saturday night. “Sorry pastor, you caught us at the wrong time.” Pastor replied: “No, you are drinking on wrong day.”
Public games
Public servants in Port Moresby held their annual friendly sports competition last Friday at the Rita Flynn grounds. The unofficial theme of the one-day event was “Take Back PNG Games.”
Beautiful heart
“A beautiful heart can bring things into your life that all money in the world cannot buy.”
