Canberra Chris New words for the 12 days of Christmas (67* d) RE: New words for the 12 days of Christmas 09 Nov 06

The Shiny Bum Singers from Oz, who satirise the bureaucracy and are touring UK nexr year have the following:

On the twefth day of Christmas
My branch head gave to me
Twelve flouros flashing
Eleven copieers clanking
Ten tearooms flooding
Nine computers crashing
Eight pollies pouting
Seven journos jaunting
Six SOGs a-sleeping
Five synergies
Four new ideas
Three false starts
Two bum steers
And a consultative committee.

'Pollies' in Oz-speak are politicians, SOGs are senior officers (grade x).
