Bad moon indeed
Ghan be a bad moon rising
A BUNCH of bare asses are about to celebrate 10 years since they mooned the first passenger train from Adelaide to Darwin.
And the only difference in their re-creation is a bit more hair and a lot more saggy skin.
The residents of Livingstone, 40km southeast of Darwin, came up with the idea as the first Ghan passenger train was about to reach Darwin on February 3, 2004.
Spokeswoman Michelle Salmon said: "It was just supposed to be locals and then word got out and this whole airstrip was lined with asses".
A crude poster drawn by local Marko Maguire was pinned at the local reserve and word got out to about 400 people who turned up at Livingstone Airstrip, helped by the NT News.
"We did it because we're buggers out here," Ms Salmon said.
"We have dinner parties on car trailers and silly things like that. And Micko said: 'We should moon the Ghan when it comes through'. It was a rare blue moon that night."
