It wouldn’t be New Years without a swimsuit calendar from City Hall.  And it would be a City Hall swimsuit calendar without a “budgie smuggler” a.k.a The Speedo.  This year, it almost didn’t happen due to differences between councillors on modesty.  The tradition is as follows:

  1. The twelve councillors are chosen by lot
  2. Every year has a theme
  3. At least one councillor has to wear a speedo and/or bikini, he/she is chosen by lot

This year, it’s rule number three that’s a problem.   One mountain councilor of Ward (4 + 4) refused to don the Hallowe’en scarecrow-themed speedo.  “It’s ridiculous.  I’m not as fit as I was in my 30s, and the straw on that thing looks itchy as Hell.”

“We’ve never had resistance like this before,” says Recreations manager, Darby Flindall.  “I suspect the councilor is embarrassed about his tattoo.  I think it’s cute – everyone loves the Tasmanian Devil.”

City Staff vote on the month and the theme.  The City Planning Department designs the speedo, while the Recreational Department chooses the background for the photos.   “It’s the one time of year when the whole civil service chip in towards the betterment of the public,” says a source close to the Mayor.

We at HammerInTheNews just hope, for the sake of harmony at City Hall, he bites the bullet and squeezes into that bad boy.
