SYDNEY MEETS, PARIS TOASTS

Ned Wynn is in town. Just walked home from meeting this charming Californian polymath—in the company of James MorrowRafe Champion, and the Wogblogger—and am now frozen by insufficiently-warm global warming. Oh, to be in in Paris, where the cars are once again burning!

    1. …and am now frozen by insufficiently-warm global warming…

      Chuck another Renault on the fire before the bloody bears sneak up on you.

    1. You walked home? Hmmmm, let me thank you on Gaia’s behalf for reducing the size of your ‘footprint’, unless of course you stopped off at the jungo’s maccas on the way home.

    1. Not only did he walk but he took really long strides to minimise the number of small animals and plants that he crushed underfoot.

      He should be well alight by the time he gets through the flagons that he picked up on the way.

    1. Bear fat makes an excellent lamp and stove oil if you’re feeling chilly:

      1.  Acquire your bear.
      2.  Um, dunno.  Never met a greenie who got past step one…

    1. Screw the bear fat, richard, all that fur makes an excellent coat!  Much warmer.

      The trick, of course, is to obtain the bear skin while keeping yours.

    1. Yes, it’s quite chilly here in the Nepean region.  See, just talking about Al Gore’s “movie” will do this.  When the “movie” comes to town we’ll be skiing down Lapstone.

    1. Eh? What’s that smell? A flambé Peugeot?

      It must be summer in the City of Lights, time for the banlieu car-b-ques!

    1. Has anybody considered the possibility that car manufacturers in Europe might be bribing French rioters to burn cars?  I mean, with all the regulation and unemployment and all, they probably need the sales.  Especially since we’re all going to be dead of suffocation by next year or so, they gotta make a franc while they can, non?

    1. If Ned followed my link some months ago to a certain picture of Elisabeth Shue, I’d say he’s been quite warm ever since.

    1. Sydneysiders will be able to enjoy a touch of Paris tomorrow.The local left-wing student lunatic group,Resistance,is organising a meeting at Belmore Park before marching through the City to attack Gloria Jeans and McDonalds stores.Fred Fuente,an organiser and Sydney University student is quoted as revealing that the recent riots in France had inspired the day out.The NSW Police Service can,as usual, be expected to attend to watch but not to interfere with the kiddies excerising their democratic rights to destroy property.

    1. It would really annoy me if Macquarie Bank purchased the Snowy Hydro.

      Who Cares if Islam buys all the Water in NSW……

      Fred Fuente,an organiser and Sydney University student is quoted as revealing that the recent riots in France had inspired the day out.

      So happy to see that these people are inspired by such community minded actions.

      More clueless morons wasting public resources.

    1. Things burn better when you use ’Flame of Allah‘ matches.

    1. Swinish, did follow your link, but wasn’t warm enough from it to keep me from freezing my ass off in Sydney. Back home again, I am basking in the glow of summer. You guys have it all screwed around down there. May should be gorgeous and warm, not 10 degrees. Plus, no miniskirts or shorts on the girls. Tragic. Fix your seasons, willya?

      Tim, whatever a polymath is, I’m for it. And this thread proves that putting my name in means the fewest possible comments will be left. I’m death to a thread. Still, thanks. And thanks for all the fun and great eats, great conversation, great time all ‘round. Take care of that hat, it’s gold. Love to the missus.

      Ned
