The Party's Over...

Who cares about the brushfires? The Australian state of Victoria has bigger concerns: a 16-year-old who has made global headlines for throwing an out-of-control party in Melbourne.

Corey Delaney (a.k.a. Corey Worthington) decided to throw a party last weekend while his parents were in Queensland. He sent out invites via MySpace... and ended up having over 500 guests show up. Drinking and debauchery ensued, and the police were called. The drunken party-goers pelted police vehicles with glass beer bottles. A helicopter and canine unit were finally called to the scene to break up the insanity.

Corey stated that he didn't know what the problem was. He even said that he'd throw another party just like it if his parents went out of town this coming weekend. His parents are both embarrassed and furious... and facing fines from the police.

Corey (who apparently doesn't realize how "metrosexual" he looks) was offered a job by a promoter after his little party. Luckily, the media is showing him for the twit he really is. In a radio interview, the host even tried to rip off his obnoxious-looking sunglasses.

After his 15 minutes of fame, he's finally gone into hiding... probably because of the charges he's facing: among them property damage and child pornography (I don't even want to know about that last bit). The AU$10,000 he was offered by the promoter would only cover half of the damages racked up so far.

Kids these days... I swear.

Now let's move on from this over-covered piece... just think about the world's only blue-eyed koala instead...
