Scarves on Statues is BACK but merely for a one time only cameo. I couldn’t help myself. Having been in Melbourne for the past seven days there were so many opportunities to adorn statues with Roma scarves that I couldn’t resist satisfying my fetish just this once.
There were many great statues to choose from in Australia’s best city but there was only ever going to be one winner – Dame Edna Everage. Dame Edna won out for her New Zealand connection via her bridesmaid Madge Allsop, who hailed from Palmerston North. The Roma connection is simply this – Dame Edna’s manager, Barry Humphries, was born in Melbourne and Roma played there twice last week! What more do you want from me?
