An Earth Hour suggestion: hire Max!

Posted by Tim B. on 04/04/2008 at 02:21 PM
    1. I hope I can do five hookers when I’m 67.

      Hell, I wish I could do even one, now.

    1. I could have thought of this, if only I were brilliant.

    1. Clover and Max…evocative. Enough said.

    1. But let’s say the FIA finds a suitable Mosley successor, possibly by cloning one in Brazil.

      BWAHAhahahahaha… Ver gut!

    1. I just knew that there had to be a crypto-Nazi S&M fetish car-racing angle to this glonbal warming business.

    1. “Global” warming, rather. Apparently a lot of folks make that same error for some reason.

    1. I just got this mental image of Gregory Peck with a Churman accent and a big phony mustache yelling, “Turn off all oof zer lights, dummkopf!”

      Absolutely! Whenever I see clips of Clover stomping around Sydney’s boulevards I immediately think “Ilse Koch”, and wonder if anyone has checked out her lampshades lately.

    1. Jesus Christ, the Brits ought to be proud of one of their own who can take on 5 pros at 67. Anywhere else in the world this would be an accomplishment to boast about. As for those people protesting about the Nazi uniform – lighten up guys! Whatever it takes to turn you on to 5 hookers is OK by me.
      I suppose the UK media wold have ben happier if he’d been cavorting with boys.

      If he was cavorting with boys he’d be a protected species.

    1. Tim’s nailed it with the green-Nazi analogy. I’d always seen the greens as Stalinists. But for the greens it is not only about compliance and conformity but the joy of punishment too.

      Can anyone spot the difference between this man, this man and this man? Wonder if Bob has a Nazi uniform hanging next to his frocks.

    1. Max Mosley would do an excellent job as organiser of Earth Hour, but we need a patron as well. I would like to nominate a man whose country doesn’t just run Earth Hour once a year, but has a permanent Earth Hour (Earth Year? Earth Eternity?). Fellow bloggers, I would like to present the President of North Korea (drum roll), Kim Il-sung!

      Every year, a prize would be awarded to the city with the greatest contrast between satellite photos take before and during Earth Hour. The mayor of the city would go to Pyongyang and, in a ceremony watched by billions of people world-wide, he or she would be given a ceremonial candle by Mr Kim. The mayor would return home to a ticker-tape parade.

      I’m about to go and buy my candles for next year. I want my city, Sydney, to win!

    1. Yeah, droite(chuckle).

      The link between Mosely and the warmenistas was quite a funny one. I have a sneaking suspicion Tim that The Terror’s lawyers may have asked you to amend initial descriptions of Ms Moore’s antics. After all, she does get about in a very Mosely like dog collar.

    1. O/T, but couldn’t resist: a guy in Palo Alto, California – in a wheel chair – robbed a bank, and police are still looking for him.

    1. What kind of idiot calls their kid Clover? No wonder she’s barking.

    1. Has Max Mosley found a replacement job already, as graphics designer for the Progressive Governance Summit held tomorrow in the UK? Nazi fetish material seems to be the new order of the day. Although the full cross of inclusive globalisation was quickly whipped out of sight, a cropped and colour bled version still enjoys breathing room on the arm of Her Majesty’s Govt at the website of Number 10.

    1. Is this the most useless man in Australia?

      The Telegraph’s headline today is a disgrace, attacking the RBA in personal terms and deliberately misleading readers as to the role of the bank in the economy.

      Obviously the writers and editors know they’re wrong – they’re just playing to their readers’ fears and frustrations. But too much of this crap and Labor will be able to claim a mandate to slash rates and print money, with disastrous consequences for our economy.

    1. How long before the Left complains about Tim ‘trivialising’ Nazis by comparing them with the Greens?

      Of course, that SAME Left is more than happy to chuck around the N-word whenever describing anyone to the Right of Leon Trotsky.

    1. “Sydney reader Steve reports kids running past his house “yelling at my neighbours to turn their lights off” during Earth Hour, which demonstrates an admirable Nazi-style demand for conformity”

      Richard Grunberger in A Social History of the Third Reich mentions how auto-suggestion [honest, no pun intended] conditioned Germans to Nazism:
      A “flat dweller who omitted to put out flags [swastika] was invariably scolded by his fellow-tenants for giving ‘their house’ a bad name”.

      This Earth Hour nonsense has exposed some unsettling human traits.
