Laugh of the Day

Via the tipline

Hi Cam

Hope you are well.

I have attached a YouTube video of an event that occurred at the underground mine I am working at in Mount Isa.

If you look carefully at the bottom right of the screen you will see a miner using the phone at the portal and the water truck heading into the portal (entrance to the underground mine). The water truck driver not only gave him a dousing on the way in but took the opportunity to turn around in a turning bay just below the portal entrance and come out again to take a second shot. There is some bad language recorded but may provide some light relief for your Friday viewers.

The driver of the water truck had been on site for a number of years (he was 67) and was bought to the surface for disciplinary action. He was seemingly frustrated with his job and connected a swing with his superintendent resulting in the termination of his employment.

I enjoy reading your  blog from over here in the outback and if at any point you were to get across here an underground visit may be able to be arranged to appreciate the technology and scale of this valuable industry.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
