You didn't like the SMH's April Fool's Day joke? I thought it was a good one. But was surprised to find an ad for a regional electricity supplier in North Queensland on their page...

It was not so much not liking the joke, but to give away that it's meant to be a joke in the first few words is not a good idea. But on second thoughts, perhaps a sub that didn't recognize the intended joke might have rearranged the original word order . . .
