Deface A Face
Technology can be a wonderful thing! Here we are almost agreeing with Piers' republican analysis this week with nothing meaningful to write - when a new toy is emailed to us!
Thanks to the latest developments from Social Change Online, we are now in the position to give you the opportunity to deface your favourite political figures from the comfort of your keyboard.
How would Piers look with facial hair; spots, perhaps you want to airbrush the jowels. With our new "Deface a Face" program anything is possible.
This week's effort with Piers is a prototype and we'll be improving the graphics and useability over the coming weeks.
But give it a go and see how it works. The best defacement that is sent to us on fax 9261 3505 will receive one of the few remaining Pierswatch T-shirts.
Next week the Deface A Face will move to the front page and we want you to tell is who you want to take the pen to.
It could be Reith or Howard, maybe Bob Carr, even Michael Costa, perhaps one of the atrocious Monarchists - Bronnie, Kerry or Sophie Panopolous - who are sure to be smugly skiting come Monday.. Or do you have another favourite who you would love to deface.
