It’ll all be over by Christmas! Send in the clowns!

It’ll all be over by Christmas! Isn’t that what they said about the First World War?

When the country is being run by a cheerleading buffoon instead of a sober politician one can see the effects – 45,000 – 67,000 deaths.

The man’s a lazy clown.

Joke – reveals what spin can do

My mate Graham sent this through to me. I thought it was funny but it also said something about how much we can trust the media.

Over in the UK the tabloids – particularly the Mail, Express and Sun – are nothing less than propaganda machines for the Tories, feeding a constant stream of fake news, exaggeration and outright lies into the homes of working-class people. Talk about spin????

A little girl was standing too close to the lion’s cage in Taronga Zoo.

Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, all under the eyes of her screaming parents.

A Rebels biker wearing club patches, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

Whimpering from the pain, the lion jumps back, letting go of the girl, and the biker brings the girl to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.

ABC reporter, Andrew Probyn, has watched the whole event.

Probyn, addressing the Rebels member says, “Sir, this was the most gallant and bravest thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.”

The Rebels guy replies, “Why, it was nothing, really. The lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right.”

Andrew Probyn “Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m an ABC journalist, you know, and tonight’s news will run this story.

So, what do you do for a living, and what political affiliation do you have?”

The biker replies “I’m an Army veteran, a Liberal voter and I support Scott Morrison”. The journalist leaves.

That night the biker turns on ABC News to see if it indeed brings news of his actions.


And THAT pretty much sums up the ABC’s approach to the news these days.

Humour – a great joke.

Thank you Graham for this one!! A great joke with a sense of truth!!

The King wanted to go fishing, and he asked the royal weather forecaster the forecast for the next few hours. The palace meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain. 

So the King and the Queen went fishing.  On the way he met a man with a fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the man if the fish were biting.

The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace!  In just a short time I expect a huge rain storm.”

The King replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard.  He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I pay him very high wages.  He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.”

So the King continued on his way. However, in a short time a torrential rain fell from the sky.  The King and Queen were totally soaked.

Furious, the King returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the meteorologist.  Then he summoned the fisherman and offered him the prestigious position of royal forecaster.

The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting.  I obtain my information from my donkey.  If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that…it will rain.”


So the King hired the donkey.

And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in influential positions of government.

The practice is unbroken to this date.
