    1. I contacted their manager to book for them for my daughter’s 21st in Feb but apparently they have all had to return to Pakistan at short notice.

      Something about all hands on deck.

    1. I am shocked. SHOCKED I tell you.

      These advertisements are offensive. They portray Islamic terrorist bombers as idiots.

      Oh, wait.

    1. When setting off one’s car bomb, one should try to approach the maximum number of innocents possible. One should not explode oneself on a sand dune.

      I really don’t think it’s a good idea having the safety marshalls in those galabiyya and shawar kameez really aren’t suitable when OH&S recommends overalls.Where’s their rep?

    1. I’m with Saad Saraf.
      Why use a negative stereotype of the Muslim community when they could’ve used a positive stereotype like wotsisname.
      You know.

    1. I hope these are just the pilots for a whole series !!

      There’s enough material in Islamic Jihad to easily produce something that would rival The Goodies in every respect.

    1. Was that Dr Haneef joking around in one of those scenes? I suppose we can ask him when he returns. He’ll only be around the corner at the Gold Coast Gen. I hope his cousin is enjoying all those virgins.

    1. Mehaul, regarding Dr Haneef, I love the way he’s been treated so dreadfully by Australia and its people, yet still wants to come back.

      But only if he can sue for compo, of course.

    1. I don’t care what you think of the advertisement – at least they are allowed fireworks! Not like this Nanny State where they will get you in as much trouble as a stick of dynamite or a rocket propelled grenade launcher.

    1. Reminds me of an old chap they used to get to do the fireworks at the Boddington rodeo. Both years I went he damn near killed either himself or others. My most vivid memory was similar to the bottle falling over one in the laaf video. One of his fireworks fell over, shot off and bounced off a pram bonnet before exploding about 5 meters up in the air. Singed a few people but the bub was unharmed.

    1. I think the last one in the series – “Don’t light fireworks indoors” is pointless.

      Anybody that freakin’ stupid, won’t be able to read the captions.

    1. Dan Lewis

      That would be like the “dont leave a bundle of detonators, tied with a lackey band into a bundle of about 15, on the dashboard of your ute, then put the mobile phone on the dash as well”
      Believe it or not that was an actual reported incident, blew all the windows out of the ute and the eardrums of the dicks involved. Both got peppered with fragments but otherwise ok.

    1. #14: Nah, Paco Industries got out of the fireworks business several years ago (right about the time cousin Bobo Van Hoy decided to take inventory during a power outage by the light of a candle).

      We do, however, still maintain a small production facility for our Pyrotechnically Amusing Cigar Ordnance (you just can’t beat the look on a man’s face when his cigar explodes!)

    1. I am reminded of the time in high school when some friends and I drove by this guy’s house and attempted to fire a bottle rocket at it. The rocket went off inside the car, instead. A certain amount of disordered, frenetic activity ensued.

    1. #24 Why is it I suddenly feel a need to know more details Paco? Is it so I can laugh so hard I cry?

      RANDOM FACT #85829: When Ash turns up at work for a meeting that shouldn’t take longer than an hour (but took three damn hours!) and finds out that the air conditioner is broken when it’s 33C (somewhere above 90F for our foreign mates I think), Ash is not cheerful. Ash gets quite cranky. Ash blames the Permanent Air Conditioning Organisation for not properly taking care of the air con. Or the maintenance team. Ash was too hot to be picky about who to blame. Ash doesn’t take heat well. Ash also writes in third person sometimes, especially when there’s absolutely no reason to. This is probably the only thing that Ash and Colonel Milquetoast have in common.

    1. Apropos #24, here’s an important safety tip: when firing a bottle rocket from a moving vehicle, make sure you’re not saddled with an incompetent gunner’s mate who, in the heat of battle, forgets to roll down the window.

    1. O/T sorry
      Can anyone find the link to this story?The Queensland Court of Appeal has upheld a decision that a man repairing another person’s car when he was under the influence was guilty of drink-driving.He didn’t even have the keys. This means that if you are near a car and drunk you can be charged with drink driving. Ridiculous.

      As a letter writer in the CM today says:

      Breathalyse everyone in a taxi and if anyone is under the limit charge them with drink driving, because they might drive the vehicle.

      Utterly ridiculous.

    1. Here in NSW, if you have any fireworks you’ll get treated like a terrorist.

    1. Well.  That was an unexpected treat.  Thanx so much.

      Paco, I know I’ve said it before, but you’re a sketch! Thanx so much.

      Cid, I thought the same thing about Critter’s obvious contribution to the fun.
