It's Been a Big Year in Burke's Backyard for 2017 in More Ways Than One it Seems

I saw the above news stories this morning where Time magazine has named Tarana Burke's #MeToo movement as 'Person of the Year'.
Which is kind of ironic, if you were like me and grew up in Australia watching TV between the years 1987 to 2004 and watching a show called 'Burke's Backyard' and thinking that Don Burke was a nice Australian bloke, only to hear and read of all of the sexual misconduct allegations coming out against him in 2017, thanks in part to Tarana Burke's #MeToo movement.
It appears that Don Burke will never be able to get this monkey off his back after being exposed in the Chinese 'Year of the Rooster (Cock?)' for the sexual predator that he allegedly is;-)

I like to think that a Rose had a hand in bringing a disgraceful Down-under gardener down in 2017, as well;-)
Harvey Weinstein
And hasn't that old Harvey post of mine become more relevant as the year has progressed with Geoffrey Rush now in the eye of a media storm, as well?
I don't think the storms and revelations will abate in 2018 either.

UPDATE: 8th December, 2017

Boy, it looks like a bigger media storm than expected.
