What a happy bunch of Vegemites

This was not actually what we had planned for this event, but was rather our backup plan if the weather was not kind to us. When it came time to decide before we had to start handing out scripts we had to make a call, and went for the wet option, but as fate turned out it stayed dry from that moment on !

This was a very cute event, but we really lacked any great numbers in the way of audience, with only a dozen or so passes by catching us in the act. But those who did pass by were trying very hard not actually see us, unfortunately with one group they had a child who did not realise you should pretend not to see strange acts. Much to his parents distress, he was heard to say "Look daddy, what are they doing ?", but they quickly let him in on the strange adult and replied "Ignore them, just pretend they are not there".

So we ommed away, which seemed rather therapeutic at the time, then on queue we jumped into a rather vocal chorus of the Vegemite song, then into the disperse. It was short and sweet, with grins on ya faces when we were singing.

And we still have the original idea up our sleeves !
