(Good to know Mr Fluffy's not a paedophile - because that was my first thought!)

No, that was Mr Stinky.

Or Mr Bubbles

Mr Bubbles gave his name to both a notorious paedophile in NSW and a car wash in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne. Those of us aware of the former are amused (in a slightly awkward sense) by the latter.

Mr Fluffy (whom, I understand, is long since deceased - there's certainly no-one left to sue) would probably hardly be held in less esteem in the ACT had he been caught interfering with small children. The whole affair is going to end up costing ACT taxpayers several hundred million dollars (although I think the Feds are picking up some of the bill, and they'll get a bit of it back by reselling the land post-demolition).

As for Constable Kenny Koala, he's been doing the rounds of junior primary classes in the ACT since (at least) the 1970s spreading the message about crossing roads safely and not going anywhere with strangers.

We have Constable Care for that in WA. He's a real person at least and not a koala. Actually I mean he's a person but he's not necessarily real. I think he's also long past due for promotion. Acting Chief Sergeant Care has a good ring to it.
