high fives for benjamin law

Nawww… we are so excited that frankie writer Benjamin Law is all grown up and making TV shows now. His series The Family Law (written with another frankie friend, Marieke Hardy) has its TV debut on SBS tonight, and from what we’ve seen so far it’s just about as weird, rude, lovely, awkward and hilarious as the man himself. Based on his book of the same name, it chronicles his childhood on the Sunshine Coast and his oddball family, too. To celebrate, we thought we’d share this slightly revolting photo of our editor Jo Walker and Ben back in their much younger Brisbane years. No real connection to the TV show – just a visual reference for everyone who wants to lick Benjamin’s face right now.
