COLUMN OUTSHONE

Latest Continuing Crisis column for The Bulletin mentions Rich Hall, Mark Steyn, Quebec, decapitation, and the Walkley awards. Much better than the column is the ad currently running at that page, which points to this. Also: classic West Indies cricket pix.

    1. If Rich Hall could be as funny as that deliberately he might not have to pimp himself around the UK and Oz as a pliant self loathing American.

    1. The road between Vermont and Quebec is fraught with peril. There’s a nasty bump right at the line, too.

    1. My cousin, fresh from a tour of the Phillipines, bought himself a Mustang back in the 60’s (don’t remember the exact year).  He said it felt like it was made out of coffee cans, but you have to remember that was when we were gradually converting from the old tank-steel autos.  Bet he wishes he still had it.

      Who the hell is Rich Hall?

    1. Michelle Malkin gets some quality hate-mail from the multiculturally-sensitive Left. Lots o’ stuff about being a banana (yellow outside, white inside) and a mail-order Philippina whore, etc.

    1. RebeccaH—this is Rich Hall, in full blown entertainment mode.

    1. Hey, Rich, here’s a sniglet for you:

      Comediocrity, n, a talentless comic who milks a lame premise.

    1. Tim… you orter check out the Shelby/SVT F150 Pickup.  147 mph by Guinness.

    1. A GT 350 replica, eh? 1965 and ‘66 Mustang fastbacks are getting much harder to find, and command a much higher price, because so many people are doing that. My dad finally gave up trying to find one.

      An Aussie friend of my dad (in Blacktown, IIRC) restores 1960s Mustangs and converts them to right-hand drive. He apparently makes a decent living at it. He buys lots of parts on eBay and other on-line sources here in the States and has them shipped to my Dad’s address. In addition to the cost of repackaging the stuff in crates and shipping them off to OZ, he sends my Dad a couple of sixpacks of VB every few weeks with a mutual friend who works for Qantas.

      Damnit, he won’t share!

    1. Ah, memories of the Aust v Windies Tied Test in 1960.  At least 3 million people were there that day and all have indelible memories of that wonderful event. 2 million have written best sellers about the day.

      During the match, the pitch was fitted with at least 675 sets of stumps, 2690 pairs of bails, and at least 1000 cricket balls were bowled, (all of which have been sold on eBay.)

      Marvellous, that.

    1. Just because Rich likes Phil Adam’s ass better than Tim’s is no reason for sour grapes…..

    1. What time is it when two Holdens pass each other?

      Tin past tin.

  1. The shot of the ball ricochetting from Geoff Lawson’s at-that-moment-broken jaw.

    Ouch.
