Shock: Port Phillip Bay Not Level

Dramatic photos from The Age this morning show Melbournes enormous Port Phillip Bay on a tilt.

Readers were witness to the astonishing spectacle of giant cruise liner Sun Princess apparently motoring uphill to berth at Station Pier. There was no explanation for this perplexing gravity defying phenomenon in the text, but The Tilt as witnessed above, must surely come as some relief to Tim Blair, an expert on these things, as its about the only thing these days leaning to the right.

“…as its about the only thing these days leaning to the right.”

Well, that and the leader of the parliamentary ALP. Swish!

Was it to fit as much of the ship into the picture as possible using the diagonal?

Probably. It is a fantastic shot in any case. I’ll be down to take a look for sure.

This is part of Victoria’s preparations for global warming.

If you know the geography the mostest uphillest part of the bay is the shore!

Get it?

We’ll be dry and cozy when the carbon dioxide hits the fan – which as rumour would have it – may already have happened.

In fact you know how all the reservoirs are getting emptier and emptier?

Well where do you think the water is running – downhill!

It’s the channel deepening. Made the back of the ship tilt down.

FX. If you mosh hard enough at the Espy tonight you should be able to level things up.
