A man living in Sydney has bought Ayers Rock and plans to rename it Ayers Rock & Roll. Billionaire, Mark Roberts, made the announcement on Wednesday to gasps of horror and opposition. Groups already plan to file injunctions to halt his attempts to rename the sacred location.
Congress-person, Nelandra Cosgrove was quoted as saying, “Mr. Roberts has legally purchased the land on and around the sacred monument, so technically he does own the formation. However, that does not give him the right to rename the location.”
Cosgrove is best known for her opposition to renaming the Australian continent “Party Island” a decade ago when a media mogul offered to pull the country completely out of debt. His only stipulation was the new name and a diving board off the Sydney Opera House.
I don’t know…I’ve hopped near that formation and find it enchanting. Not sure “& Roll” will work here. Especially on April 1st.
