Denyer's 'sex with a black man' PR gaffe

It must’ve been a big post-Logies party, given that it forced one time mum’s favourite Aussie weatherboy Grant Denyer to imply that he was so exhausted he ‘felt like he’d had sex with a black man’. So lame and puzzling the analogy, it even stunned radio host blabbermouth pair Merrick & Rosso into a kind of nervous cough moment. You can hear the quip from this msn source here:

  1. Too funny! That is a bit different.

    Btw Gerry – I love this blog, I’ve added it to my blogroll and I’m a regular reader. I’m going to have to read your book as well!

  2. Thanks Paull; I just don’t know what possessed the normally affable Denyer!!
    Good luck to you in your Stateside endeavours, too; keep me updated on any US PR disasters if you can!
