    1. So, Tim, let’s see ‘em! Don’t you know that if you show a gun in the first act it has to be fired before the curtain?

    1. I believe this is what’s referred to by baseball fans as a ‘hanging curve’.

      And, yeah… Cough ‘em up, Tim.  After all we all deserve the full story, so as to make a truly informed decision.

    1. But pictures of the beauty wearing only her undies and a cowboy hat,published on the cover of last week’s Zoo magazine,

      she was actually paying homage to Chimpy McHitlerStein whose mojo influences more then the weather.  ‘undies’, only in Australia 😀

      have landed her in hot water with international pageant officials, according to media reports.

      Either she likes hot-tubs, or this is more evidence of global warming.

      Well I’ve just googled for “Zoo Australia” and all I get are sites about Steve bloody Irwin.

    1. This whole prudishness over her nudie pics just stinks.

      Forgive me being blunt, but show me a top supermodel who hasn’t taken off their top or sucked the odd employer off to get where they are.

      She’s up front about her past (and she passes up front as well). I say good for her.

    1. Thanks for the heads-up, Tim, about this story as I’ve been too busy (indeed all of the Canadian media have been) following the magical dingo urine story to notice this one.

      The ALP tree was given a spoonful of Roundup.

    1. Dammit, Tim be fair!  I sent you those nice Brazilian footie pictures.

      Not that anyone was photographing feet, granted, but hey, turnabout’s fair play…

    1. Swinish, LOL, you read our minds.

      Here is our idea of sexy!

    1. ‘take a closer look at topless photographs ‘

      HUA!

    1. I will look as closely as humanly possible.

    1. Patricia, RebeccaH — You ain’t fooling nobody.  You’re both sitting there thinking: “Now that’s sexy… If only I could get him to take out the garbage, mow the lawn, maybe do the dishes once in awhile…”

      I grew up watching American family sitcoms.  I know what really matters to a woman…

    1. If you play you’re cards right you should be able to get one of those Artsie Grants out of this.  A true doubleheader, if you’ll pardon the pun.

      Do you have a great country or what!?

    1. Rebecca, Patricia, I’m sorry to say that Corporal Miller in the photograph is available.

    1. #20: Hmmmm. Vulnerable, too. Women supposedly like that.

      Here, I’ll do it (it’s ok, I’m a doctor).

    1. #18, don’t forget the fat wallet.

      #20, 21, it’s tempting, but while I may look and admire, it would be unseemly to touch.  He’s only six years older than my oldest grandchild.

      (Although I have known plenty of men who didn’t find that kind of age gap a problem.)

    1. Well, that is too much of a flashback for me.  I’ve seen more than my share of young men who looked like that.  Most of the time, I was looking at them as I cleaned them up so they could be treated.  That’s if they had been lucky, of course.

      The rest of them tried to clean up before they were seen by female personnel.  I often wonder how it is now with men and women serving together in a war zone. The nurses in Nam served with men, of course, but it was different than it is today.  We were the only American women around.  I’ve never been appreciated like I was there, before or since. <sigh>

      Actually, boys, you have a lot more fun with our boobs than we do. Play on.

    1. You’ve all missed the point, as it were.
      Erin is only wanting quality control where it counts.
      She thinks there may be a plastic breast scam hiding somewhere.
      They’re no better than plastic turkeys, not that I would know.

    1. As I tend to be impartial in matters concering our great sister nation, I sincerely beleive that I should take a closer look at those photos.  In the name of Australian-American relations send me the photos.

      Just do it.

      NOW!

    1. Patricia, that’s a good depiction of my idea of a Real Man…of course, he doesn’t need to smoke, he doesn’t need to get his hair cut by a “stylist” & he needn’t know how to wash a dish, but a Man who isn’t afraid to get dirty for something (or someone) he loves is a Gift from G-d!

      You know, like Texas Bob & My Chief, among others!

    1. richard, don’t forget, “Aren’t you going to shave today?!”

      Well said, Auntie KC.  Let’s hope he heals up from his PTSD and his fame and has a good life. He is a little below my age bracket, as well, but a girl can look, right?

    1. #30 – Patricia, The day I quit lookin’ is the day they start shovellin’ dirt – an appreciation for a handsome man is one of the great things about being a woman, even at my advaced age. Hell, at least I know enough now to LOOK ONLY!  8D
