Man in the Corner | Mates play a ‘cracker’ of a joke

A TEACHER at the Hopetoun P-12 College has found himself with proverbial egg on his face.

The young man in question was reportedly over the moon to find his new chooks had started consistently laying eggs two to three months ahead of schedule.

He was delighted to find several eggs each morning – for a couple of weeks straight.

The excitement turned out to be premature when the man, also the vice-captain of the Giants' football side, found a dozen eggs in the hatch one morning and knew straight away he had been set up.

After investigating the matter further, he concluded that two friends had been visiting his chook pen at nighttime in an egg-cellent stitch up. “Priceless” stuff. 


SPEAKING of eggs, how quick did those supermarket shelves clear this week as post-Easter sales began?

Man in the Corner resisted the temptation to stock up on the leftover hot cross buns also on offer. 

There’s a fair degree of willpower involved in avoiding that temptation.
