Official Supermarket


It has often been observed that life imitates art. Increasingly, I find that life imitates the Monty Python Show.  Last week I thought I had misheard when the newsreader announced that Woolworths had been appointed the Official Supermarket of the Australian Olympic Team.  Then I read it in the newspaper and found it on an Olympic Games website.


I have nothing to add.  The headline is its own parody.  But I can’t help wondering what disciplinary action will be taken against any member of the team who is spotted pushing a trolley in Coles.
