Snaps for Sharon!
Kath and Kim is saving my Aussie bacon right now. It’s been two and a half years since I was last home and when I discovered by accident that Kath and Kim was playing on cable tv I was like, Oh My Lord, Kimmy, Kimmy! I was not a hardcore fan before I moved to the States, but now that I live in the northeast, I can go a long time without hearing epithets like “foolscap,” “Warney” and “Harvey Norman.” I nearly lost my shit when Sharon (Karen) Strezlecki performed her flipper for the guy at work. Champagne comedy as Gormo would say. So I use my modest forum to express a personal debt of gratitude to Gina Riley, Jane Turner, Magda Szubanski, Glenn Robbins and Peter Rowsthorn for defending my cultural skin. Yeah, nah—I love you’s all.
