Ray Smuckles is six gin and tonics deep, people!
How Ray talked The Tele into giving him a column I’ll never know, but he shits all over every single one of there other contributors.
OT – Let us Hope that the Geelong Cats shit from a great height on the Prima Bogans from Port Adelaide in the GF tomorrow.Posted by Infidel Tiger on 2007 09 27 at 10:28 PM • permalink
#3 – It would appear from my last comment that I have become vicariously drunk after reading Ray Smuckles.Posted by Infidel Tiger on 2007 09 27 at 10:31 PM • permalink
We do have one Aussie poem. The only one ever worth repeating.
I reckon Ray will let us have that one.
No flowers in it!

Thanks for that, I just laughed ‘till I cried. Time for bed, gotta get up early, I have one of those alarms with no snooze button. The kind that instead of beeping loudly, says “I want some milk”Posted by Not My Problem on 2007 09 27 at 11:29 PM • permalink

Re #10’s link to that … that … supposed Rod Stewart photo:
What the hell is it with this place anyway. What is the deal with the photos you guys link to. Do you have any idea what you are doing? Last night I had a nightmare that wouldn’t stop, regardless of my having wakened several times! The terror was made up of zombies of Peter Garrett, Margo Kingston, and some other creeps whose pictures I’ve been assaulted with over the past few days. They kept reading to me their inane prose, while I lay helpless and unable to move.
And now that picture of Rod Stewart !!!!
There oughta be some kind of warning for especially sensitive folks about things that might blind them, or make them want to go blind. Perhaps a banner, with some of those animated emoticons wearing a look of distress, waving the arms about while jumping up and down. Big red ones. Bookmark them around the message: Don’t look at this picture if you’re a sensitive soul.
As a kindness.
#17 – 60 pints would be a quiet night on the tiles for John Smeaton.
Actually I thought that this poor devil had consumed 60 pints in one session. Granted, 60 pints is slightly above average, but not for special occasions, like days ending in the letter ‘y’.Posted by Infidel Tiger on 2007 09 28 at 01:03 AM • permalink
Bull, we have one poem.
That or the loaded dogPosted by thefrollickingmole on 2007 09 28 at 01:28 AM • permalink
- o/t “Four illegals stow away with Blair’s new car” ….Four asylum seekers entered Britain in the back of a truck carrying former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s new official car,it was reported yesterday.
The men were arrested when they jumped out after the truck stopped in a police yard to deliver the car. (Police returned the car to B.M.W. because its security was compromised.”
abridged from The Australian.
So when are you fun-lovin’ criminals gonna get a travelin’ roo to talk about how much America rocks?
(That’s a set-up line. The expected answer is, “Why? You bloody seppos blow your own horns enough”, or however you would say it in Strine. If there’s one thing I’ve learned hanging out here, it’s that you never want to puff yourself up near an Aussie.)
Well we did get around to being all poetical about gorball worming scepticism long before you guys had even discovered Big Al.
Dave, Australians have a deep seated emotional and intellectual inferiority complex. We are unable to cope with success or high achievement, and feel that cutting the ‘tall poppies’ is the societal leveller. [/snark]
(do you believe that line of psych gobbledygook? if you do, there’s a nice bridge in Sydney going cheap I can get my hands on for a good price for you)
#24 our deadline is closing soon, send your stories soon
submission to the 1.618 WeeklyPosted by Col. Milquetoast on 2007 09 28 at 03:37 AM • permalink
I just checked my email, and found one from GetUp.org.au, which is the equivalent of “Email for Moonbats”.
The first line said “We’re working hard to combat the misinformation in Government advertising with our rampaging climate spoof campaign.”
Climate Spoof Campaign? Does this mean they’ve changed sides?
- O/T but 1.618 weekly could do worse than have a look at this bunch of loons, coming back to Australia.
The sea sheep-herds.
Call me a cynic but the ladies involved arent exactly to hard on the eyes.Check out the eco facist language used by the thougougly brainwashed crew.
“Humanity’s greed is killing what little is left and only a few of us seem to care..”
“It really saddens and enrages me…”
“I’m here to see to it that if we do wipe ourselves off the face of the globe there is still some life and environment left on this island Earth…”
“..the disgusting abuse our marine life is getting..” (was Bob Collins in the navy?)
“How could I not stare in wonder at a whale, a turtle or a trout?..”
“I truly hope that one day very soon our race will have a huge wake-up call and will start taking care of the other inhabitants of earth and not just thinking of themselves..”
“I’m thrilled to be a part of the most aggressive, no-nonsense and determined conservation organization in the world..”
“Driven by his love for the ocean and his disgust in humans for the continual destruction of the natural world..”
“Over the years witnessing the many atrocities we impose on our environment and the endless suffering we inflict upon its precious creatures..”
“I literally got goose bumps while I was on board..”
“that helping to protect the animals and the environment from humans is the only worthwhile work I can imagine doing..”
Someone needs to tell them this was only a movie.
Would anyone trust any of these people in a Bio lab?
Ps, Americans feel free to mock, most of the crew are Aussies or canadians, Im so ashamed.Posted by thefrollickingmole on 2007 09 28 at 04:32 AM • permalink
Apologies for going off-topic, but is this another example of Blair’s Law in action:
Amnesty lobbying on behalf of Bali bombersPosted by Young and Free on 2007 09 28 at 04:40 AM • permalink
Well, if we’re going off topic, how about this letter in the Economist last week:
SIR – Your briefing on capital punishment in America was permeated with the usual anti-death-penalty claptrap, which no doubt flattered the prejudices of Europeans and some here (“Revenge begins to seem less sweet”, September 1st). For instance, you repeated a staple belief of abolitionists that the death penalty is losing support among Americans. Yet in truth, support for the death penalty in America remains strong.
You should also peruse the FBI’s crime statistics for 2005. They show that the murder rate per 100,000 people in the ultra-liberal, abolitionist jurisdiction of Washington, DC, was an eye-popping 35.4, whereas in Texas, peppered with your death-penalty “enthusiasts”, it was 6.2. It appears that the citizens of the good district are vastly more enthusiastic and liberal in meting out the death penalty, albeit privately, than we allegedly trigger-happy Texans.Posted by mr creosote on 2007 09 28 at 08:06 AM • permalink

Dave, Australians have a deep seated emotional and intellectual inferiority complex. We are unable to cope with success or high achievement, and feel that cutting the ‘tall poppies’ is the societal leveller.
See, I know that’s bullshit, because Canadians have a deep seated emotional and intellectual inferiority complex, and they manifest it by deeply sniffing their own farts.
We seppos have lots of poems….

Not true. The fart-sniffers are in Toronto and they sniff the farts of NYC. Some have migrated to Ottawa where they are positioned downwind of Toronto. Most of us are more interested in increased personnal protection.CheersPosted by J.M. Heinrichs on 2007 09 28 at 02:13 PM • permalink
