It is a hard way, the way of being a man. Sooner or later we all want a thing that is bad. To walk on all fours. To suck up drink from a stream. To jabber, instead of saying the words. To go snuffling at the earth, and to claw on the bark of trees. To eat flesh, or fish. To make love to more than one, every which way. These are all bad things. These are not the things that men do. But we are men, are we not? We are men because the Father has made us men! – The Island of Dr Moreau.
Did I really not know this was here? Did I block it out? I was even at the E Shed markets not long ago and didn’t see it. Why have I been picking on poor dead Heath Ledger, and Ron Gomboc, when this obscenity was just down the road? Great submission from Richard. He says it’s been there for months, but the tail is still propped up with bits of plywood. It doesn’t even look like a quokka. Or is the fur yet to come?
