(my girl’s got) miraculous technique

29 January, 2010

At the end of this quote, Hon. Ken Travers and Hon. Giz Watson mention an exchange from several years ago that has not yet been featured here – as we hit 400 posts next week, we’ll be reaching into the WA Legislative Council archives for that historic moment (warning: it may be a little long).

HON GIZ WATSON (North Metropolitan) [12.45 pm]: I rise to make some comments about the Criminal Code Amendment Bill (No. 2) 2009, which amends the Criminal Code with regard to offences that involve throwing objects at or placing objects in front of vehicles and also the use of laser printers —

Hon Michael Mischin: Pointers.

Hon GIZ WATSON: What did I say?

Hon Michael Mischin: Printers.

Hon GIZ WATSON: Oh, my goodness!

Hon Ken Travers: You tend to throw them rather than point them.

Hon GIZ WATSON: That is a worry. I have obviously been here way too long today! Laser printers are more common than laser pointers.

Hon Liz Behjat: And you can’t throw them either!

Hon GIZ WATSON: Laser printers? Let me tell members that, yes, they can be thrown.

Hon Ken Travers: The Greens could probably table one as well if you asked them!

Hon GIZ WATSON: No, that is only fax machines. I thank members for the correction.
