I rarely watch mid-morning weekday television.
You know the sort of program they screen then. Jolly human interest stories about celebrities, fashion and gossip filling in the gaps between commercials dressed up as conversations between a presenter and the spokesperson for whatever is being spruiked at the time. These can be anything from lotions that magically remove hair from unmentionable parts of the body to pills that extend your and your partner's...er...pleasure to home computers that will turn your child into a genius at the age of three.
So it came as a surprise to me when I did watch twenty minutes of Channel 7's version of this 'entertainment' during the week when the spokesperson spruiking women's makeup was none other than Courtney Act.
There she was in full drag, with the most beguiling of sexy feminine voices, extolling the virtue of some brand or other.
The conversation was supported by a series of before and after photographs of a number of women concluded hilariously by a before and after view of Courtney herself.
The before view was, of course, a photograph of Courtney's alter ego, Shane Jenek, looking - in my opinion - extremely handsome and far prettier than Courtney. The conversation/commercial concluded with Courtney landing a lipstick smudging kiss on the cheek of the male presenter.
The commercial was a rare example of wit in the pantheon of mid-morning television.
