LIKE cockatoos in a gum tree Victoria's ministers have taken to Twitter to squawk their various achievements.
Last week Ag Minister Peter Walsh tweeted the success of his department's fox and wild dog bounty.
"Vic Coalition fox bounty success continues, with 133,000+ scalps handed in by end of 2012. The only good fox is a dead fox," Walshy chirped last week.
It took only half an hour before his shadow, John Lenders, tweeted back "Any Big Cat scalps been found yet?" - a dig at the Government's failed bid last year to uncover evidence of pumas and panthers roaming the countryside.
Hashtag is a curse
Speaking of twitter, Back Paddock also noticed a new Twitter hashtag last week called #farmercurses, inviting farmers to offer their best curse on a fellow farmer - all in fun, of course.
Jonathan Dyer offered this gem, "May all your gates be 1m narrower."
"I hope it rains on your wheat the week before harvest and your tractor's aircon fails ," cursed Martin Murray.
But our favourite was from Tony who wished his enemies could be "left with no choice but to drive a KIA Carnival to the Deniliquin Ute Muster".
