The arrival of the first chilly morning of the year has prompted that hard bastard who hasn’t worn a shirt since September to consider opening up his wardrobe and dusting off a singlet or two.
“It’s time to put away my summer look of a bare chest and a pair of jeans and face the harsh reality that I may need to get my trusty singo out of storage,” said Ingleburn hard man Mitch Bullbar. “It’s not that I’m afraid of the cold. If you print that I may need to bash you up.”
“I know Mitch once flirted dangerously with wearing a sleeveless T-shirt when we went to the Snow that time,” said Bullbar’s long time girlfriend Taylor. “He almost wavered during those 47 degree days last summer and changed into a pair of shorts but I implied that if he didn’t skull a whole can of toughen the fuck up I’d be out the door.”
Bullbar’s great grandfather Sir Cedric Bullbar famously became the first explorer to reach the South Pole dressed only in a pair of speedos. His last words during Scott of the Antarctic’s expedition were “I’m just going outside. I’m not going to hang around inside this tent like a softcock.”
“It’s definitely singlet weather for anyone whose only source of pride is their ability to take a beating,” confirmed weather man Tim Bailey. “I’d pass on the business of the brolly but obviously Mitch isn’t scared of a little rain.”
