    Good thing the camera was behind and not facing "Sheila" or we'd probably gotten a view of her "root canal"
    Is it just me or did anyone else find it quite "interesting" for a woman who's dress looked more like a short sweater, had a lot of cue cards that were sexual in nature?

    I did think her dress was a bit short for sitting down in, although I won't comment too much on it since it's what some people choose to wear. Whatever floats their boat if they're comfortable with it.

    But the choice of cue cards seems fairly reasonable to me because:
    • Presumably it's for a late night show where people expect that sort of humour, and
    • Some of Australia's best/funniest slang is to do with sexual stuff or uses swear words. I imagine from a longer stack of cue cards the producers just took the funniest ones or most amusing responses.

    It's also on a basic cable channel (TBS).

    Fun fact:

    The cue cards alone were nothing it's the correlation between the two. And the way she was sitting. I know it's late night stuff just found it quite amusing although I think I'd av less probems verbally communicating with people in Istanbul than Australia

    Have to admit one of my favorite Movie scenes is when Mick Dundee says "That's not a knife, this is a knife" "Ah just a bunch of kids playing around"
