THE FRONT FELL OFF!

On
August 19th 2007, an oil tanker off the coast of Australia split in
two, dumping 20,000 tons of crude oil.

Senator Collins, a member of the Australian Parliament, appeared on a TV news program to reassure the Australian public.

This actual interview is funny - you'd swear it was a 'Saturday Night
Live' skit or Monty Python, or for you old timers, Abbot & Costello.

Unbelievable...........

Just because it isn't true doesn't make it any less amusing.

But it did happen ... in 1991 not 2007. http://www.amsa.gov.au/marine_enviro...irki/index.asp

Clarke and Dawe are great. Love catching their weekly skit.
