It was time to show ourselves and the outside world the real Logan City and encourage people to stand up and be proud to tell people that we are from Logan-- and not hiding by telling people that we are from "the south side of Brisbane."
Where Brisbane truly lets its hair down is off the eastern coast at Stradbroke Island, or Straddie as locals call it. Australians affectionately refer to many things by their diminutive form. Sunglasses: sunnies. Board shorts: boardies. Barbeque: Barbie. An island should be no exception.
It pained me earlier this week to learn that another country has beaten us to the punch with what is definitely one of the dumbest ideas yet. Australia recently gave birth to a fad called "planking" that is, quite literally, painfully stupid.
