What is it about today?

So many heroes – and they all happen to be women as well. Today should declared Heroine Day …

1) A elderly pensioner in England tends a flower bed in her town – except it happens to be on public land – so she’s been told she has to wear a fluorescent jacket, use traffic cones and have a supervisor or else she will risk going to jail. She tells them to stuff it up their collective jumper. And good for her.

2) An Australian tourist is told she can’t have pretzels on an American flight, mutters “Fair Dinkum” (“Oh really?” in Aussie-ben) and gets arrested for ‘swearing at the flight attendant’. Linguistic Terrorist…. sounds like what I do for a living.
