Chris Taylor was tired of his "plain and boring" prosthetic leg. So he decided to "pretty it up a bit".
"I'm a Knights supporter, so why not put that on it," he said.
Chris, of Taree, has been a Knights fan since the early days.
"I liked Harragon and Johnsy and the boys. I followed the team since the '80s."
Chris lost his leg after standing on a piece of glass.
"It went in through my heel. I had it dug out a couple of days later, but it got infected."
Being a type 1 diabetic, he "didn't have much blood flow down there".
The infection got into the bone. After three weeks, doctors removed his leg from halfway up the shin.
He said it took a little while to get used to a prosthetic leg.
"It's been a bit of a task, but I've got the hang of it pretty well now," he said.
Sam Edelman is on a mission to secure Australia's first ever Michelin star for his KFC in Alice Springs.
The Michelin-star system doesn't actually operate in Australia. But that's not the point, apparently.
The point is that Michelin stars represent the creme de la creme in the swanky [and let's be honest, snooty] world of restaurant prestige.
Actually that's not the point, either. But it did give us a chance to mock snobbery.
In Michelin land, one star is for "a very good restaurant in its category", two stars mean a restaurant has "excellent cooking, worth a detour" and three stars declare that a restaurant has "exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey".
Sam said the food at his KFC was "bloody good and should definitely be referred to as excellent cooking", but he does admit to eating way too much of it.
His calls for a Michelin star had "blown up way bigger than I ever expected".
"I've been having phone calls and interviews from media all over Australia and the world. Surely Michelin are going to hear about this soon," he said on Faceache.
A Newcastle Herald colleague, who is partial to the odd chicken burger, has taken issue with Sam.
"Surely if a KFC gets a Michelin star it should be ours - the biggest one in the southern hemisphere?" she said.
Sam's done well to drum up some free publicity for KFC.
We hear head office is delighted. But if people get all excited and start eating too much KFC, they're likely gain a Michelin tyre, never mind a Michelin star.
Over the Moon
Waratah West's Fred Saunders tells Topics that Australia Post is issuing four commemorative stamps to mark the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
If sales go well, Fred reckons Australia Post will be ... err ... over the moon.
