Burning Fanny.

This morning at the coffee shop, Sally the owner said to the man beside me 'Did you go to Bernard Fanning last night?" I didn't hear that. I heard 'Did you go to Burning Fanny?'

In my head, I immediately thought that somebody had put on a feminist Burning Man. My first thought: God, that is SO Wollongong. My second thought: I can't believe I missed it! 

I asked Sally for details. She set me straight and then we both bent over and honked and leaked salty water from our eyeballs. I'm still laughing, but also, I'm thinking my brain might have stumbled upon something pretty special. 

Burning Fanny. 

Watch this space.

  1. Haha. My kids asked me a few years ago why a singer would want to name himself Burn-Ed Fanny. They took quite a bit of convincing that they had got it wrong but but the name has stuck.

    1. Yes, it occurs to me that Bernard Fanning fans have probably been making this joke for years...but it was a new one to me! Ah well. Slow to the party...again. x

  3. What a miss-hear! He does have a slightly unfortunate name in that regard :)

  4. Maybe Burning Fanny could do a duet with Just Some Beaver.
