Canine society
Psst, Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, this is a tip-off. When conducting your de-sexing programme in Port Moresby this month, visit Pythons Street in Rainbow Estate, Gerehu. No pythons there but a lot of unruly canines.
World ranking
An avid rugby league follower thinks that Tonga’s shock defeat of the Kangaroos on Saturday would not affect world rankings. He reasons that Tonga was represented by an invitational team – not the national team. It thus was not sanctioned as an official test match. But he admits that a defeat is a defeat.
Bad result
The result of the Australia-Tonga rugby league match last Saturday ended badly for a Tongan family celebrating in Auckland, New Zealand when a family member in the throes of happiness tossed an item which hit and smashed the television screen.
Horsey Day
Many punters will be crowding the betting shops around the country today to put their money where their “horse’s mouth” is during the annual Melbourne Cup event.
Be warned
There is a new tactic employed by thieves in busy and crowded areas. They will rush up to a person who has valuables and shouting that he is a thief while taking all the valuables and fleeing. People will not intervene thinking that he is indeed a thief. Very smart.
Pastor robbed
A pastor was reported to have had his vehicle broken into by thieves in Gordon, Port Moresby. Personal items were stolen. No doubt there will be hell to pay for the thieves when caught.
Angry wife
In Warakum, Western Highlands, a man is nursing knife wound after he rowed with his wife over the frequent visits by her relatives. It was not the first she had attacked him over the same complaint.
Wrong head
A fight erupted in Tarangau, Mt Hagen between students after they discovered discrepancies in the election results of their head boy at the beginning of the year. They only discovered it a few weeks ago. Obviously too late – thus the fight.
Top town
A fight erupted between security guards at a Top Town drinking establishment in Lae last week to mark the start of the silly season in that area.
