More material and sources are needed. For example, descriptions of the location and why the helicopter was hovering over the man's home should be added. An analysis as to whether a tomato filled bazooka could pose a serious threat the a helicopter is also needed. StuRat 18:03, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Agreed, it's hardly worth the effort. The point of this story is the hilarious "tomato-bazooka". - Borofkin 23:39, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Swinging into action...Edit

Please accept my appologies (and revert) if my edit of swang->swung counters the author's local dialect. My source for the edit was Merriam-Webster which indicates that 'swang' is considered dialectal and not in widespread formal use, nor does it appear in carefully edited prose. If it were quoted material, I would not change it, but since the scope of WikiNews readers is worldwide, I recommend more formal usage. Please don't shoot me with your tomato-bazooka!

Some people think those who use "swang" should be hanged, while others think those who use "swung" should be hung. :-) StuRat 20:01, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

I think it's fine. I'm a long way from Australia and I was glad to see the story, it raised a smile. Brian McNeil / talk 21:02, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

At the moment, all articles produced appear on the front page, because the entire wiki only produces about five articles a day. When we start producing more, articles like this will be flagged such that they don't appear. - Borofkin 23:34, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

oops, I thought it was lead story stuff! ;) - 02:08, 24 November 2005 (UTC)
