The Great White Fish

The Wah very kindly gave me the latest John Birmingham book Without Warning for my birthday.

I've been enjoying it, but haven't been as speedy with my reading as I would like. The Wah, however, picked it up one night when he couldn't sleep (I of course was dead to the world), and got through about 100 pages.

This morning we were comparing notes on plot points encountered so far. "Have you got to the point where they discover the big yacht, the Aussie Rules?" I said.

"Oh yeah, the one owned by what's his face. The Fishy Fish. The Mighty Fish."

"Uh... the Great White Shark?"

"Yeah, that's the one!"

Only the Wah could describe golfer Greg Norman as "The Fishy Fish"!


  1. That's what we like to see...
    Real in depth study
    Imagine will be said when the class of 2012 try to get away with something like that

  2. Wouldn't that make him the great white flake?

  3. Very apt, Barnesm, considering Mr Norman's reputation on the golf course over the past few years. ;)

  4. And ignoring completely his actions off the course.
