It’s probably difficult for some younger Australians to understand just how much Lindy Chamberlain was vilified and ridiculed by her countrymen and women 32 years ago when a dingo killed her baby, Azaria.
But I know, because I was one of them.
I was working as a stand-up comedian in the early 1980s and performed a routine I had written which posed the question: “What if they made Lindy Chamberlain The Musical?”
The centrepiece of this rave was the 1967 tune by The Association called: “Everyone Knows It’s Windy” which I had cleverly re-written as “Everyone Knows It’s Lindy.” (I know. Genius.)
I’ll spare you ...
