WATERCOOLER: Does Bindi deserve a key to the city?

I'LL preface this with a disclaimer.

I cannot dance to save myself.

I may think I can when I've had a few too many cane champagnes, but I can't.

But it's not going to stop me questioning why on Earth Bindi Irwin deserves a key to the city for a few weeks of fancy foxtrotting?

Sorry, I don't agree with it.

Firstly, we don't even have a city, we're a community of communities, so they keep telling us, so I'm guessing she was handed a key ring with about 11 keys on it.

Not quite as symbolic as the big brass key.

I digress.

Researchers working on medical, scientific and engineering breakthroughs, sure I could understand a key to the city.

A life dedicated to helping youth and families in need, by all means get to Mister Minit and cut the biggest key you can find for them.

Heroic police officers, firies, everyday people putting themselves in danger, again, happy to give them whatever they want to the city.

But a few weeks of primetime US television, waltzing, wowing the idiotic masses and we're told Bindi deserves the honour bestowed upon her?

Not sold on it, I'm sorry.

Surely the pay cheque she's picked up for her time is enough, or the endless promotion she receives with her brother for all things Australia Zoo?

Maybe she deserved the key for her dedication to wildlife preservation but surely not for a simple bit of toe-tapping.

Regardless, I'm interested to see what the key actually gives her access to.

A car park at the Plaza on Christmas Eve? Free entry to Fridays? The VIP lane at the movies?
