After a four-month undercover investigation, the police arrested a 22-year-old dealer last night — at a McDonald’s, naturally. They confiscated 2,000 pills worth about $50,000, cutting off a valuable supply chain to the international pride fest that culminates with enormous shirtless parties this weekend. A policeman called the ecstasy bust “a win for the [region’s] police force just before a major event in Sydney.”
We know we said that we were done covering Sydney Mardi Gras, but this is an outrage, we say! A veritable hate crime! How can anyone be expected to have gay pride without drowning a druggy haze? Booze is just not going to cut it, goddammit! Our hearts go out to all the queens roaming around Sydney right now wondering how nobody has any fucking E.
