Can anyone beat this?

My grandfather was a cool cat…if he could have he would have been a beachcomber but my grandmother had other ideas.

He taught me to drive…amongst many other things. A panel-beater by trade he made me trolleys, army helmets, and loads of other toys and stuff.

Driving with him was hilarious, especially on long trips.

He hated mynahs. He thought they had a bloody cheek to be here in the first place and then when driving towards them they arrogantly just shuffled off to the side to avoid getting hit, when other birds get moving quickly and fly away.

He spent his lifetime trying to run the buggers down.

The other day my Hawkes Bay mate sent me this pic…he, like my grandfather and me, hates mynahs. He nailed this one.


I checked though and he wasn’t deliberately trying to get it so only half points.

Then last night I got back from my evening walk and another mate had sent me this.

Booyah! two at once.


Not many people can claimed to have nailed a mynah in a car, let alone two.

Can anyone beat that?

I’ve sent this photo on to my Hawkes Bay mate…he isn’t best pleased…and say he will try even harder now.

Any day now my rabbit squealer will arrive then I’m off to snot some feral cats.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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