The Tasmanian Tiger lives! Apparently the creature infests Canberra; not sure if a capture so far from Tasmania is eligible for the $1.25 million prize, however.

    1. If Tasmanian Tigers beg, have you looked in Macquarie Fields?

    1. Feh. I can’t get the trackback to work. Here.

    1. The garbage bin is obviously photoshopped in.

    1. While on Tasmanians – lacking stripes, but I’m sure we could fix that – Bob Brown complained recently that our government was prepared to spend up big on defending Iraqi democracy, while falling down on the job at home!
      Strange, coming from a senator who (a) gets far more than his share of media coverage, and (b)one who is elected on a giant gerrymander which means that Tasmania gets far more senators per head of population than other states – they have twelve, same as NSW!
      Any suggestions about how to apply some stripes to his back?

    1. Haven’t seen a TT yet; but we Canberrans have to be careful of the murderous hordes of rampaging kangaroos.
      Just this afternoon, I had to brake for a large bunch crossing State Circle, just a few hundred metres from Parliament House; they were coming from the direction of the lake, hopping up to Capital Hill.

    1. How about this?

    1. I nearly ran off the road this morning laughing at a news story.
      An artist complained that her public sculpture had been vandalised by somebody. Turned out to be a Park Ranger.
      A piece had been removed!
      What piece?
      The dead kangaroo, of course.
      She thought the large sculpture of the Logger would be enhanced by draping a road-killed kangarro around the shoulders of the rapine beast (the logger, that is). It made more of a statement about the deaths of kangaroos et al during logging.
      The (obviously philistine) park ranger did not see the compelling logic or the elegant subtlety of her vision, and removed the dead animal. None so furious as the sculptress scorned. She is ropable.

    1. Tasmanian tiger spotted begging for food outside the Subway outlet
      Obviously another victim of the policies of George Bush.

    1. I got stripes, stripes around my shoulder
      I got chains, chains around my feet
      I got stripes, stripes around my shoulder
      And them chains, them chains
      They’re about to drag me down

      And blogstrop, if you want a gerrymander, take a gander at this.  Good old Crappy New Jersey™ for you.

    1. Ah, C’mon blogstrop, those sorta tall tales went out with Henry Lawson, (or maybe Andy Bartlett)

      Nime the nimes!

    1. I can’t be sure but it sort of looks like Tigger.  For a $1.25 million reward, I think I will camp out at the Thousand Acre Woods in case it shows up.

      That punk ass Christopher Robin better not show up horning in on my action.

    1. Oh sure, you can waste your time looking for the Tasmanian Tiger.  I’ve got bigger game to hunt.

      I understand he goes for frogs.

    1. I understand he goes for frogs

      Can you send him to Quebec?

    1. I had a Tasmanian Tiger once but my wombat ate it.

    1. Ok. That didn’t work. Try again.

    1. The Thycaline really is extinct- they were all molested and eaten by these critters, who’ve since infiltrated human society as “prop forwards” and “New Zealand actors”.

    1. Hang on- it looks like Kev Gillett has caught one in his garage– looks pretty vicious as well.

    1. noir — Is a yowie anything like a yobbo?

  1. A yobbo is one that has access to beer.
