All poo puns intended

Srsly, I do not want to read another word about the poolato incident at the Coogee Bay Hotel!

Everywhere I turn, there's yet another pointless 'update' - yet another quote from the 'victims' about how 'disgusted' they are.


You ate poo and you were disgusted? No!

People, this is not news!

I swear, we'll still be seeing 'updates' of this story next January.

Fleeting thought for the day

If the new Baz Luhrmann self-congratulatory orgy of narcissistic jingoism flick Australia will cost $130 million, and the new tax rebate offers producers 40% 'cash back guarantee', doesn't that mean the tax-payer is into this film for 52 million big ones?

That's an awful lot of episodes of the Religion Report, or the Media Report, or the Sports Factor...

Pointless nit-picking - perfect for Monday morning

From today's online edition of the Australian.

Get with the program!

That logo was being used was when Qintex was solvent, Christopher Skase was breathing independently, A Country Practice was in production and Stan Grant was hosting Real Life!

All deeply hilarious and very good for alleviating the workday (provided you have perfected the art of silent, desk-based laughter).

But we use to think Bushisms were funny. I used to LOVE bushisms.

Surely, I thought, the fact that there is a brand of humour named after this man would be the ultimate sign of his unrelenting stupidity. But perhaps it was distracting – a coping mechanism when futile anger and fury became exhausting.

Is it possible the humour-element will prevent a proper appreciation of the frightening danger of Vice President Palin?

Yes, Bush she is funny. But Bush she is only funny because he she is breathtakingly, remorselessly, unfailingly unqualified.

And this is not an abstract debate - there is no shortage of examples to evidence the results of an unqualified leader at this time.

Just asking for some consistency

Given this headline:

Shouldn't this headline:

be "Heterosexual man kills and grills heterosexual girlfriend" ?
