bury me with it

MS J.M. FREEMAN (Nollamara) [5.25 pm]: […] In preparing for this debate, I thought of a funny story that my father and I sometimes share. He always loves to hear that he has been mentioned in Parliament. When we were younger and living in the Homeswest house that my parents purchased—it was much easier then to purchase a Homeswest house than it is today—my father dug a big hole in the garden, buried the car in it and planted a tree on top of the car. It is the healthiest damn tree in the whole suburb because, I am sure, it has fed on the waste of the car during all that time! I would not advocate that other constituents in Nollamara do that.

Mr A.P. Jacob: You obviously have iron-deficient soils!

Ms J.M. FREEMAN: That is right. I am sure that my father took out all the oil and other noxious things in the car, which probably did not contain as many noxious things in those days as they do today —

Mr D.A. Templeman: There was nothing in the boot was there?

Ms J.M. FREEMAN: No, there was nothing in the boot! My father will probably tell me off now for revealing that story, but the evidence is well and truly gone by now.
