May I suggest if there are five blokes to every girl, we should find out where there are beauty-disadvantaged women and ask them to proceed to Mount Isa.... Quite often you will see walking down the street a lass who is not so attractive with a wide smile on her face. Whether it is recollection of something previous or anticipation for the next evening, there is a degree of happiness.
"Beauty-disadvantaged" .. well, he did try to be tactful, but I don't think that "euphemism" will catch on with many future public speakers.
And, who would have thought, the beauty-beholders are not just men either. Among some of the town's women who say there aren't many gems among the men either, a witty Anna Warrick told a Brisbane paper, "We've got a saying up here that the odds are good, but the goods are odd." That's a beauty, Anna.
