The noddies
Okay Chris! You in the back there, mate! Now, while Tone's talking to camera, you stand right behind him and stare at the hair on the back of his noggin and we want you to really, really stare at it, okay?
Just keep staring at that hair, mate. It's Tony's hair. You lerrrrv it, okay?
And every now and again, just nod and smile a little, okay? We love that little frown, mate, but we really want you to nod. Tony will want you to nod.
Now, Chris, when that other lady wants to talk after Tony, you just shuffle over a bit and make room for Big Tone, cos he's gonna wanna look at her hair, and so are you, got that?
Now you all stare at it ... you really wanna stare at it ... nod and smile ...
Now, Shazza! While Jules is talking, right, you just smile straight at the hair on the back of her head, okay? And you can smile, don't forget to smile!
And don't forget you really really love what she's saying, so nod. We want you to nod. Julia will want you to nod. And stare ... don't stop staring, okay?

I'm finding it hard to get past the first photo:

BREAKING NEWS ELECTION 2010
OPPOSITION LEADER
TONY ABBOTT
SERIOUSLY INJURED IN A SAVAGE BEAR ATTACK IN THE US

I wonder if the bear was transfixed by Tony's hair too?

I rant nightly at those who nod in the backgrounds of news stories. My Pete refuses to listen - he's heard it all before.

Hilarious!

Don finds all the election stuff endlessly fascinating, and I am daily regaled with personalised opinion pieces, about how Labor is f*d, and how they're stuffing it up. Sigh. I'm trying to care.
