Dedicated Logophile lover, The Swinger, called my attention to this fabulous article earlier today. He was immensely amused that of the eight ladies who had been exposed to our tradies ‘extremely large’ man stick, only one had complained and he was predicting a big upswing in requests for said tradies tools in the next few months from the stay at home ladies brigade.
He even thought this fabulous gratis advertising opportunity might encourage some driveby activity down in old Victoria Point. I don’t doubt any of that for a single second.
“New kitchen anyone?”.

A CABINET-MAKER has been ordered to destroy his skimpy work shorts after exposing himself to eight women while performing renovations on their kitchens, a court has been told.
Mark Stephen Owen, 50, pleaded guilty in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today to 12 counts of performing indecent acts at various Brisbane homes between 1999 and 2008.
Prosecutor Lewis Shillito told the court Owen wore skimpy shorts or stripped down to his underwear while he worked, allowing what the women described as an “extremely large” penis to poke out from the fabric.
The court was told Owen would also masturbate in front of the women, aged between 45 and 83, and rub cream onto his exposed genitals while complaining of a rash.
Mr Shillito said Owen’s actions made the women feel uncomfortable but that all allowed him to finish the renovations.
Only one woman initially reported Owen to the police but more came forward after police made a public appeal for help.
Owen, from Victoria Point, was given a nine-month jail term for the offences but was released immediately on probation for three years.
He was also fined $1000 after pleading guilty to two counts of possessing child abuse computer games.
Magistrate Noel Nunan ordered Owen’s work shorts, which were seized by police, be destroyed.
He also refused Owen’s request for the return of penis rings he had worn to work to enlarge his genitals.
