Espresso, DOC, Carlton

I got pretty excited yesterday when a horse named Shocking won the Melbourne Cup. I couldn't wait to see the headlines the next day. Those headline kids were going to have so much fun with the pun. "Shocking result", etc. If ever there was an opportunity to get everyone vomiting in their muesli at the so-predictable-it's-unexpected hilarity of the pun, this was it!

The Age's actual headline was a little lukewarm, really. It would have been better put to use at the top of a story about a guy getting electrocuted trying to jump an electric fence to steal a slab of Toohey's New.

Most importantly, somebody got paid to come up with that. I'm gonna kill my guidance counsellor.
