Maybe we're just sick of picking. Maybe we're sick of picking between subpar choices?
Here's some examples:
Federal Election. Noone really won.
Aussie Hugos Novel category - tie with The City and the City and The Windup Girl. This one though was not about mediocre choices.
Aussie Rules Football Grand Final. A Tie. Third time in the 100+ history of the game. Subjecting the nation to another grand final this weekend. Yay I can shop without the hordes.
Australia's Next Top Model. Host mucks up the announcement so they both win? (The prize is only $25 000. I was quite shocked by how low that is).
I'm not sure now whether to bet on the Melbourne Cup or not.
