it’s no game

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: […] I was recently in Wongan Hills. The department had issued a third strike —

Mr M. McGowan: Were you driving the bus?

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: I was not driving the bus. I was using all of my best endeavours to get behind the wheel of the bus whilst the engine was on, but unfortunately there were a number of people on the bus whose sole purpose for being on the bus was to stop me from driving the bus! I did not get to drive the bus, although I did get to play pool with my friend the member for South Perth at the Dalwallinu Hotel. He is a pool shark of some capacity!

Dr A.D. Buti: He was dressed like one last week!

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: He was. He was dressed like he was going for an audition for a bit part in The Sopranos!

He went up to the pool table—I know it is late at night, but I will quickly —

Ms J.M. Freeman: This is a really serious issue.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: I will deal with it; I am just responding to the member.

He waddled up like an old croc. He could barely get over the table —

Ms J.M. Freeman: We are about to take away serious behaviour and you are treating it with disregard and disrespect.

Mr T.R. BUSWELL: I will get back to it. I was going to tell members how the member for South Perth waddled up to the table. He propped himself over the cue and missed a few balls. We lost the first game, but by the time the second game came around he was poetry in motion, like Minnesota Fats! He sunk nearly every ball on the table without a blink. We took on all-comers.
