Of bananas and cannabis
This front page story about the tragic three-week shortage of bananas encapsulates what the ODT is all about … hard hitting journalism, understated exposés and, of course, first-rate puns.
This man was caught cultivating and possessing cannabis in his home. Lesson to be learned? If you’re going to do something illegal, have a quality excuse like this one ready to back yourself up in court.
Bet there was some teeth-gritting when this was written. But, to ensure the student reputation wasn’t overly amended, a rather sulky ODT made sure to include this accusing article on the very same page. It huffs about “excessive noise,” “bottles being thrown” and “students causing traffic hazards,” ensuring readers know students are still rampant hooligans.
The tables have been turned; let’s see how this paedophile likes being observed by an unwelcome onlooker.
