BLESS YOU, DAILY TELEGRAPH EDITOR, for restoring Uncle's faith in the vocation of Australian journalism!

Carr chases dog. Sam a 13-year old kelpie-cross, is the latest target of the Carr Government's desperate grab-for-cash.

The ailing Summer Hill dog is in the absurd sights of bungling bureaucratic debt collectors - who are hounding his owners for a fine they paid more than a decade ago.
(Saturday June 28, 2003).

They could have worked in at least five more puns, and that "absurd" is best left in the tutorial room of Sydney Orr University.

Nevertheless, a palpable hit, DT.

Please put that photo of Sam on your website.

Beat that, Geelong!
