The Age

Joel Selwood, dressed as Jake King thanks ... Jake King.

It's not Mad Monday at Geelong, it's wacky Wednesday and even though it has arrived earlier than they had hoped, the Cats never disappoint.

And, the old favourite, did coach Chris Scott forget to dress up, or is he meant to be the North Melbourne coach? It is Joel Selwood's task as captain to lead from the front, and it a role he takes very seriously, and apparently not just on the field.

Electric vehicles don't have to be stratospherically priced products from Silicon Valley, or boring range-limited economy-focused cars, either... "So we won't have any apples for a while, but how would you like one of these lovely oranges?" That seems to be the line of questioning Tesla is running on customers marching into its stores ready to drop a $5000 deposit on the upcoming Model X electric crossover.
