ABC News 'If Sydney had a superhero...it was Trough Man", as in gentlemen's lavatory prostrating man.

It's way past time to put the axe to the ABC.

This was part of the ABC News on Budget Tuesday.

If Sydney ever had a superhero, maybe it was Trough Man.

This character would lie down in the male urinals at dance parties in the 1980s and enjoy a long golden shower.

"In the old days at the showground parties, you'd go into the toilets and someone would always twist off the neon lights, you'd get there and it would be really dark,"

"You'd just hear sounds, you'd get to the urinal, and there'd be this body in front of you rolling around, wanting you to pxxx (my censorship there not the ABC's) on him.

"He was kind of nameless and a little bit mysterious … he never said a word."

Do we really need a taxpayer funded news organisations if it's going to run stories like this?
