Something strange about Douglas Wood. This man seems to always be showing what a fragile mask the persona of 'Aussie larrikin' is. He will be craggy and solemn, then in a second light up his face with "going to the footy mate" or "bloody fantastic" - but we've all seen the transition. You can see the moment at which he puts it on. Perhaps this is what some people find unnerving about him. He's not just a bloke. It's not natural like that. This blokiness is only evoked for a rather brittle man's social interaction and defence.
