  1. Why do The Living Room’s media releases always read like they were written by a badly educated 10 year old ?
    The Cat Sat On The Mat is high literature compared to this tosh.
    And as you picked up David , “infamous” is usually used to describe something ” notorious , disreputable , ill-famed or wicked” – surely not Melbourne’s much loved Skipping Girl factory.
    Whoever writes this cliche ridden junk should go back to school , and whoever proof reads it should be ashamed of themselves.
