'Tis the season to be Tasered
Some Australians do go a bit nutty at Christmas. It's hot and people drink lots of alcohol - there is no better way to celebrate Jesus's birth - which inevitably leads to biffo. And for Ocker hoons an audience full of kids is the ideal venue:

No doubt the kiddies found the impromptu spectacle stunning, as did the 18-year-old puncher.
