Nope, still a sow's ear.

i just don't get why the ANZ (ever happy to crank up my fees overnight) would go... "I know how we should spend this money..."

I wish they'd put a decent libation bowl on the front, though. I don't know how you're meant to get the blood of your first-born into that tiny slot...

Wow. And it seves no apparent purpose.It's not like that roof is going to protect the user from the elements or more importantly, muggers. Now if they installed a guillotine or maybe a nice gatling gun turret, that would be much more useful.

It's kind of like the Bank of Versace, don't you think?

Larry, frankly, the way banks in Australia charge bank fees (excessively) forget your gun turrets etc, the least the machine could do is blow you.
