It has been confirmed this morning that a young woman from the cosmopolitan regional centre that is Lismore is pulling the piss a little bit.

Shawna Ashton, who grew up on the outskirts of the town aptly named ‘the Wok’ due to it’s geographical nature, has confirmed that she has been telling people not local to the region that she lives ‘just outside of Byron.’

Her actions follow new research released by the CSIRO this week revealing that 90% of residents who live within 100km’s of Little Bondi actually tell people that live ‘just outside of Byron.’

Aston confirmed to us that she does she herself pretty much as ‘a Byron girl’ considering she’s been to a few festivals there and went to the beach in Byron instead of Ballina at least 3 or 4 times in her childhood.

“I used to love Byron so much more before it become a bit to commercialised you know,” Ashton said.

“Back in the day it used to be a real hub for alternative people and dangerous ideas, but it’s sold out a bit now,” she said referring to the fact that people from Sydney and Brisbane who lack integrity and individuality have swamped the town in an effort to make themselves feel like they are a little bit different to the rest of the people in the high neworth suburbs they live in.

“I’m also sort of a Nimbin girl as well really,” she explained referring to the fact that Nimbin is also within an hour’s drive of her share house in the part of town that floods every now and then.
