Charlie laughs of silly sign language

HE supports Division 8, good coffee and the Ipswich Jets.

Which is why Cr Charlie Pisasale had to laugh about a defaced sign in One Mile, graffitied by a miscreant who can't spell 'Allahu Akbar' - meaning 'God is greatest' in Arabic.

Cr Pisasale is not an Isis supporter, contrary to what the vandalised sign says.

However there is an Isis district in the Wide Bay-Burnett region and the local rugby league team, the Isis Devils, are a proud and determined bunch.

The moustache given to Cr Pisasale gives him a decidedly Mayor of Palermo look. He can expect casting agents to call him for a part in a new Sopranos series...maybe for a shock seventh series.

The QT understands the picture of Cr Pisasale was taken in the 1990s, and we can't criticise him for that.

We all want to stay eternally young. When told of the sign Cr Pisasale was in good humour, as he usually is.

"I look at it this way, if someone is getting their jollies out of it then it puts a bit of humour in the whole thing," Cr Pisasale joked.

When asked what he really does support, Cr Pisasale asked: "Have you got all day?"

We can confirm he remains passionate about working hard for another four years in his division, the Jets and a strong Italian short black.

*The QT digitally removed an offensive addition to the sign from the image that appears in today's paper.
