Kevin Bartlett:

Famous

Every few minutes he says something is famous this or that.
The famous talkback number is...
The famous quiz on soon...

And sometimes for special effect he’ll say “the world famous”

Not sure who it is but there's some tool on SEN who does the traffic and is always pronouncing Vermont (Melbourne suburb) as Vermont (US state). Grinds my gears.
Come to Perth, we have a Berwick St, pronounced as it reads, not Berrick.

How is Vermont supposed to be pronounced?

Eloise Sohier on Fox Sports News came up with a beauty this morning. She said Wayne Bennett was reportedly going to tell his Brisbane Broncos players he won't be their coach in 2016.

Plonker Shane McInnes is so farkin shit. :p I can't believe I listened to him and Bartel last night.

McInnes said: "he was thrusted into the...." 'Thrusted' isn't the past tense on 'thrust'

He also said that someone "would garnish support". He's so shit! I'm surprised there's not more hate for him on here; I suppose he's not famous enough

"I hope the weather stays away"

"Struggling with mental health"

Both absolutely get me every time. The weather is always present, say you hope the "bad weather stays away", and everyone has mental health, people struggle with "mental health illness/issue" or "poor mental health"

:mad:
