HELLO PRINCE CHARMING AT the Noonamah Tavern Frog races on Melbourne Cup Day, auctioneer Frank Schembri was conducting serious business, auctioning the race frogs. Standing at the back of the crowd of punters, parliament member Kezia Purick waved to her mate. I was waving to Kevin over there, but I am going to bet on a frog later, Ms Purick said. Mr Schembri laughed once he realised he mistook the innocent wave as a legitimate bid. PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT BUSHIES spies have seen quite a few posts of beloved pets going missing during storms in the last week, as the Top End heads into the Wet. A reminder to all Territorians with fur babies make sure theyre kept inside during storms and cant get out. RULE FOR THEE DARWINS bus service doesnt have the greatest reputation. The vehicles smell funny and they run infrequently. Except, it seems, for when a minister is holding a press conference. On Wednesday morning Infrastructure Minister Eva Lawler was forced to pause her press conference several times because of buses using the nearby cul-de-sac to turn around. Ms Lawler used the unfortunate interruptions to spruik the high frequency bus services around Palmerston, before zipping away in her car. ANTI-JAB ACADEMY BUSHIE was amused to learn this week that Darwins local anti-vaccine mandate group took inspiration from the Police Academy movies. They go by the moniker Citizens on Patrol. We now eagerly await Assignment Mindil Beach and their upcoming Mission to Moscow once international travel (hopefully) resumes. NEXT WEEK ON DARWIN ABBEY OUR chief health officers, who have been very prominent in the news of late, have middle names that sound like theyre ripped from a BBC period drama. Charles Pains middle name is Hawkhurst and Hugh Heggies is Crosby. PERKS OF THE JOB AN intern at the NT News has been living large in his first week on the job. Bushie hears he was treated to two laksa-inspired lunches while working on Friday, which even experienced journos would think is a remarkable effort. Hell be editor in no time. BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK: The WA police who managed to find little Cleo are heroes. A much needed good news story at a time when theres just so much bad news out there. Welcome home, Cleo.
