I the first one of these in the paper recently, but a friend just forwarded scans of them to me from an email circulating his office, so I thought I'd share them with you. A bit of background; last week there was some minor flooding in Adelaide, especially in the River Torrens. The West End brewery is right next to the Torrens, and every year they have a Christmas Display on the rivers banks, lots of moving statues, fancy lights and a manger, you get the idea. The water level got so high on this particular day that much of the display was simply washed away in the raging current - one of the displays, which featured on the TV news, was a big Sperm Whale. Image #1 is the one that was in the Paper, I believe the other ones were proposed but not used.

Enjoy :D

You're on the money.

Some people have been asking whether they're legit.

I can tell you that they are. The first was used, but the others were rejected.

My favourite is "If you were a whale you wouldn't hang around a Japanese-owned brewery either".

Classic stuff.

I like them to, like you Oliver I like the Japanese Brewery one but I can see why it didn't get printed
