  1. Here here!! Talking about awnings is worse than talking about the weather, the lights at Bellerive or Agfest…beats the Royal Wedding though I suppose.

  2. …but, but, but they’re RED. Think of the potential dangers – 1)mild-mannered Hobartians may spy the colour of passion and be suddenly inflamed with lust; 2)passing bulls may become enraged, turning lower Murray St into a mini-Pamplona; or 3)sneaky Communists (is there any other kind?) may infiltrate, using the awnings for camouflage.
