    What a dreadful looking event.

    The only reason I didn't reply to this post was I was struggling, at that
    hour of the morning, to put a positive spin on it. Couldn't do it, but mom
    said, if you can't say something nice...

    Well, you asked for it, when you posted photos of some of the local cows in
    a NG where we are used to something a bit more professional.

    It brings to mind the words from an old Joanie Mitchell song, maybe from the
    "Blue" album from the early 70s. The words were something to the effect

    "So you go down to the 'Pickup Station' seeking grace and beauty,
    A few drinks later you're not so choosy . . ."

    Gave me my best laugh in ages! I reckon it must be a troll, it has to be.
    And where did they get those horrible costumes?
    It looked like the local Scouts gang show or something. Maybe the local
    church pantomime.

    Some moms teach us what you said...but by mom always taught me to tell the
    truth...just like honest Abe (not of Maine) Lincoln.

    Sometimes you just gotta say it like it is...

    Is that what all those um... "ladies" were saying as you snapped away?
    -Somehow I think they meant it...

    From what I can gather from the web page, it was some sort of Valentine's
    Day burlesque show in Australia. Probably just a bunch of the local
    tarts--er, I meant "talents"--shaking a leg for the local blokes.

    The ones with the ThunderThighs were borderline OK, but those tattooed
    ladies went over the line. Tattoos under stockings just don't do it for me.
    I was never into mutilation. Reminds me of those National Geographic photos
    of aboriginal tribes.

    But I suppose that, if we dared to admit it, a few drinks later and we'd
    probably not be so choosy . . . :)

    Well, your pictures went down well.
    Nobody found anything at all wrong with them.

    Well, the entertainers weren't exactly the Rockettes. . .

    But, hey, I guess it wasn't too bad for the Australian Outback. But those
    tattoos were too much! Especially the one that had what looked like seam
    lines tattooed on the backs of her legs. Reminded me of that scene from the
    movie "Faith, Hope & Glory," where the girl is going out dancing during
    WWII, when stockings were hard to obtain due to rationing, and she had her
    little brother paint straight lines down the backs of her legs with eyebrow
    pencil, to simulate stockings . . .

    I've seen The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

    For some of us that might be a better choice than what you offer.

    Memories of the six o'clock swill perhaps.
    (I'm not really that old - tales from my father.)

    Nah, I have no such memories.

    I guess that we were all expecting to see something a bit more glamorous,
    rather than a bunch of tattooed cows all gussied up in those campy outfits,
    wearing too much lipstick. But one good thing was that none of them
    appeared to have any silicone . . .

    That was probably the kind of entertainment my grandfather watched back when
    the carnival came to town once a year. Those girls would have seemed
    perfectly acceptable, except that the bar has been raised over the decades,
    and now we just don't expect to see a stage full of ordinary-looking women
    strutting their stuff.

    It's the price of progress, I guess . . .
