8 Times ‘A Current Affair’ Changed The Way We Look At The World
1. “HAM SCAM”
In which the journalists from ACA take us on a journey through “the industry’s biggest festive season con.”
ACA calls upon this resident “Ham Expert” who wears a cowboy hat
And the reporter even takes us to her ham table.
2. “WHACKED OUT AT MACCAS”
In which we get an inside look what REALLY goes on in a Mcdonalds Drive-Thru.
Which opens with this wonderful use of journalistic wit:
3. “PENSIONERS AT WAR”
In which the prize-winning journalists of ACA report on a small unit block and the fighting that goes on between two senior citizens and 39-year-old.
This story is responsible for this delightful exchange:
4. “REVERSE RACISM”
Which reports on Michael Brown, a man who says he was fired from his IT job for being white.
Really, though, the hard-hitting reporters at ACA discover that he was ACTUALLY fired because he REFUSED TO BLOW HIS NOSE
Also he may have said some racist things but whatever…
NONE OF THIS COUNTED. THE TRUE REASON WAS REVERSE RACISM!!!
5. “DOG STREET SIEGE”
A couple of senior citizens are not happy about the ‘savage’ dogs roaming their neighborhood.
But the story seems to focus more on an elderly mans impersonation of the dogs:
Someone even made a remix!
Unfortunately the actual story has been deleted 🙁
6. “MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT” or “WAR ON VEGEMITE”
In which ACA journalists follow Aussie entrepreneur Dick Smith and his plight to
“take back our traditional breakfast.”
And the Australian public is…easily swayed?
BUT LOOK HOW VEGEMITE IS MADE!!!
7. “NEKNOMINATION NITWITS”
Which documents the “dangerous craze” of Neknomination (it’s a drinking game.)
The reporters at ACA show a huge amount of clips:
Look at all these “nitwits.”
And use their SUPER COOL graphics and editing skills to create this little excerpt:
