Strange days indeed

Sometimes I see quite the oddest things, but forget to tell anybody about them. Last Friday, for example, in the middle of the morning rush hour, my tram passed a guy from Triple M radio doing a publicity stunt. At least, I presume it was a publicity stunt – either that or he was doing an experiment to see how many people crash their cars when they see a guy standing on top of a four wheel drive in his underwear.

It’s probably the kind of thing that only disc-jockeys, with their permanent cheerfulness and embarassment-bypass, can do. Certainly by waving and saying "good morning" through his PA to all the people on the tram he seemed like he was the type of person who is ever so slightly insane and enjoys that kind of thing, or is earning a large sum of money for doing so. Lucky it was a warm day.
