Random trivia by Ellerd on 13 December 2007 2:41pm
 
The Harold Holt Memorial Swimming Centre in the Melbourne suburb of Malvern was named in honour of Harold Holt, Australia's 17th Prime Minister. Holt disappeared on December 19, 1967, presumed dead. And how did Harold Holt's demise come about? He drowned.

Aren't we a nice bunch!

Doing something that he loved?

Unfortunate! Harold Holt's death, after so long now unsolved, must count as a Great Historical Mystery. I betn those who use the pool never think of it.

He was presumed drowned. I had a beer with him in 1981.

Well he went for a swim and never returned to the shore, I'd say that's fairly conclusive.

I heard rumours that he was kidnapped by Communists in a submarine.

No, that was the Beatles.

At best, Ellerd, a sardonic sense of humor.

^^"I heard rumours that he was kidnapped by Communists in a submarine."

No doubt that's where Johnny the Commie was having a drink with him... ;-p

Johnny the Commie ?
My brand of socialism would involve giving the homeless a new carboard box every few months. Ungrateful buggers probably would'nt even thank me. ;)
