Things we love – 253

Hold the line – this pumping telephone box is right on time! The ‘Disco Infono’ (as Telstra marketing creatives would have us call it) has arrived on Brown St, Newtown (just off King) to kick start Mardi Gras season with a smoke machine, mirror ball and rainbow décor to boot. Is Australia’s largest telco just taking Newtown to the ‘Pink Wash’? Definitely. Will this serve as the final reminder of retiring Telstra CEO Adam Thodey’s business nous? Surely. At least those Telstra execs have devised a profitable use for those troglodytic telephone boxes. If only more than a single person could fit in one, we might have had a case for Marriage Equality on our hands. Ciao.
