Godwin Gretch leaves distastefully decorated domicile
Sweet Jesus, my poor Christian eyes! Godwin Grech, he of the Ute email scandal is leaving Canberra. Sadly he’s leaving for Melbourne. I’m sure he’ll find refuge in one of the green eastern suburbs full of ethnic people with equally bad taste. Godwin isn’t afraid to limit his bad judgment to politics, heavens no! Not ...

This Valentine’s Day… 3

This Valentine's Day...

Open and gaping
 The forums are open! Think of them as being like the old forums, except more vacuous and slightly more bitter. The same rules apply as always. Be fabulous, don’t be a douche, unless it’s a very funny douche, etcetera. We still have gossip/chatter/politics. What more could you ask for? A cure for HIV? Fair call, ...

Hello bitches!
Out with the old and in with the new! We won’t lie to you, pinksheep was tired, pinksheep was old, pinksheep was very 1996; but not in a good way. The new pinksheep will be different.
