Share A Secret Reviewed

Share A Secret Reviewed looks at the weekly Share A Secret column in Australia's biggest-selling magazine, Woman's Day. We at Gusworld love it, and we hope you will too. We don't give away the plot (that would be unfair and a possible breach of copyright); we just tell you what the headline is and describe the stunning artwork that goes with it.

Woman's Day dated August 12th, 1996

MUM AND I HAD A GHOST IN THE HOUSE

The foul-smelling "presence" would pull sheets off their beds, lock them in the shower, even sit down to watch TV


Despite that description, this isn't a story about John Howard, although it probably could match him for overall lameness. Share A Secret has been going through a dry patch lately, and this story takes it to the point where it could replace the sphagnum core in most feminine hygeine products. A haunted house? What kind of bloody secret is that?

The only comic value to be had comes from the picture.A woman, lying in bed in red satin (of course), is screaming and sporting a powerpoint hairstyle that would do Tina Turner proud. A shadowy figure stands over her, bearing an uncanny resemblance to Steven Seagal. Maybe they could reuse the picture with the headline 'MY NIGHT OF ELECTRIC SEX WITH A HOLLYWOOD SUPERHUNK'.
