Mark Bode’s head on a plate.
December 9, 2011 § 2 Comments
Because you may not know this but I went to school with Mark Bode.
And I wanted to be a journalist too, but the school principal Brother Roger told me to write “Law” on my QTAC form because he was a
cunt distant acquaintance of Lionel Murphy. Or maybe it was Lionel Bowen. I can’t remember and according to Wikipedia they are the same person anyway. So that’s what I did because Catholic schoolgirl, that’s why.
I dont know what Mark Bode wrote down on his QTAC form or whether he undertook any post-secondary education and I am not bitter about those FOUR YEARS WASTED IN LAW SCHOOL AND TWO HUNGRY YEARS OF ARTICLED CLERKSHIP, but his newspaper cadetship belongs to ME and by God one day I will have it.
Only then can I regain my journalistic birthright and take my rightful place as a part-time freelance contributor to a small regional newspaper that returns 19 results in this blog called Angry People in Local Newspapers.
Instead of my current meaningless existence.
But in the meantime I would like an avatar of his head on a plate.
