Down in Ozland, the Melbourne Cup Race is probably the only occasion where the entire country shuts down for the day. It is one of the biggest horse racing events in the world — indeed perhaps one of the biggest sporting events, period.
So last weekend this monster took place Down Under in, as its name would suggest, in Melbourne, and here are a few pics of the festivities:
Anyone notice anything missing?
And lest we forget, this is the city which saw thuggish cops teargas old ladies, arrest people for walking in parks without a mask, check to see that people were locked up in their homes, and all the other WuFlu-related atrocities brought to them courtesy of the Victoria state government.
There was, however, this:
Punters at the track had to be fully vaccinated and they were separated into three zones which they were not allowed to leave.
Sort of house arrest at the track.
One might have expected at least some of the attendees to be wearing a face condom, but as far as I can see: none.
I don’t know what this means, if anything, but it sure is interesting.
