Tosser of tossers, Chris Martin, has defended N & K’s unusual choice of name for their thankfully-finally-delivered bundle, opining that “Chewbacca” would have been an equally fine choice. In fact, he declares, Chewbacca’s “no stranger than Sarah“. (Tell that to lil’ Chewbacca when she limps home bawling from primary school slapped around by the other kiddies with her hair pulled every which way in recognition of her singular moniker).
This is not an easy thing to admit, but Chrisso got me thinking…
If anything goes with yer kids’ names, and mindful of Nic’s constant assurances from the shores of America that Oz is her home and always will be even if she stays the fuck away most of her life but that’s really not how she wants things to be cos Oz is the best country in the world and she can’t wait to come back you know because the people are just so down to earth and she misses the unique Aussie humour and Mum and Dad and Sis and the azure skies and the wide brown land girt by sea gleaming with a thousand dyes (or is it a thousand eyes – or even better, since we’re channeling Nic, a thousand I’s?) and she’s so proud to be Aussie and always will be etc…surely she’s missed an outstanding opportunity to display her patriotism in a truly meaningful and indelible way. Sunday Rose? WHY NOT SUNDAY ROAST?
No conviction, Nic.
