It's coming up two years and still those swine at The Australian haven't picked my entry out of the bag/hat/barrel.
They must be biased to contestants called Peggy and Beryl and Reg.
Or family members. Remember how competitions on cereal packets used to be accompanied by the disclaimer "Not available to relatives of Kellogg's employees". Well, I don't see any such rider here. How many Oz employees now own a shiny, new, unopened dictionary? I bet Rupert has one. Lachlan, too. Phillip Adams probably uses his to prop up a sarcophagus.
And how many punters do the crossword, anyway? Surely, just on the balance of numbers, my entry must be due.
I've a good mind to ring the crossword desk and give them the piece of my mind that doesn't do the crossword.
