DJ declares war on Sydney over video
MARK Twain once said God created war so that Americans would learn geography.
Taking a leaf out of Twain's book, a Gladstone radio DJ has created a war so Sydneysiders learn to shut their mouths.
Paul "Browny" Brown, from the Hot FM CQ Breakfast Program, has declared war on Sydneysiders and people who talk ill of Gladstone.
His declaration follows a negative video about the city making waves on Youtube.

The video takes an apocalyptic view on the future of Gladstone to highlight film-maker Dan Ilic's view on the effect of industry on the Great Barrier Reef.
Mr Ilic appeared recently on the Hot FM CQ Breakfast Program where he was ambushed by Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers and Mr Brown.
Browny said someone had to stand up for the region.
"I found it offensive," he said. "He hasn't even been up here."
Gladstone people were also in the firing line for complaining about their home town.
"If locals do it, someone else will too," he said. "It's like if you pick on your mate it allows others to do it too."
Browny went a step further than defending the region, he turned his rage towards Sydney in the form of a song.
"I'd never live in Sydney because it sucks," he sang. "You're a bunch of snobby clicky schmucks."
Browny acknowledged that his voice wasn't the best.
"I can't sing for the life of me," he said. "But I have been to Sydney and I hated it.
"Until he has been to the area he can keep his mouth shut."
The radio DJ said the region had the friendliest people, a beautiful reef and everything else you need.
"Whether it is for a short little holiday or a great big holiday you can find your own fun here," he said.
"You have Agnes Water, Seventeen Seventy, Heron and Keppel Island, picnics at the marina and nights on the town."
If someone from Sydney wants to fire a shot back, "Browny" is waiting.
