On More Efficient Cheating

November 8, 2007

muttiah-muralitharan.jpgA piece of advice for Muttiah Muralitharan.

It’s plainly obvious that you cheat and everyone knows it. However, the ICC has decided that it’s ok to cheat if you are playing for a side that would otherwise be uncompetitive on the world stage.

So with that settled, why bother even pretending to bowl? Just take a chair and bash Ricky Ponting over the head with it, like they do in “professional” wrestling.

It’s got about as much to do with cricket as what you do currently.

Harry Clarke Completely Loses The Plot

November 8, 2007

Harry doesn’t want to ban smoking, oh no. He’s not crazy, after all.

He just wants smokers to have to register themselves with a government agency in order to be able to buy cigarettes!

You know, like Heroin Addicts and Sex Offenders.

This might be achieved by registering cigarette smokers who are addicted to nicotine as addicts just as it has been proposed to register heroin addicts. These addicts would then be supplied weekly supplies of the amount of tobacco needed from pharmacies which would be the only place where cigarettes were sold.

Harry just made the leap from eccentric crank to bat-shit-crazy loon.

Impressionable Youth Takes Up Smoking

November 2, 2007

LDP Queensland Senate Candidate John Humphreys – a non-smoker – has pledged to take up smoking for the duration of the election campaign.

I already enjoy drinking and playing poker and make no apologies. While I’m not a smoker, I certainly stand up for the right of people to smoke without being hassled or made into a pariah. To show my support for smoker’s rights I will smoke every day for the remainder of the campaign.

The “Pariah” comment is an obvious reference to John Howard’s recent comments on smokers.

In The News

* As far as “The West Australian” newspaper and most West Australians are concerned, the Ben Cousins saga is bigger than the moon landing. In that case, the latest development is like Aliens landing on the swan river.

Cousins Missing On Streets Of LA

* The Olsen Twins are 21 now. And one of them is shagging Lance Armstrong. Just though you’d like to know.

* While I’m on the subject (And let’s face it, when aren’t I?) Singapore Airlines asks its customers to refrain from shagging on its new Airbus A380 beds. Head jobs are also out of the question, at least until you get in the air.

Questions And Answers With The LDP

November 1, 2007

(crossposted on my campaign blog)

A religious group, The Australian Christian Lobby, recently sent out a questionnaire to parties running in the upcoming election on a range of political issues . Many of the questions, predictably, are related to issues considered important by Christians, but they are questions that most people have an opinion on nevertheless.

Go here to read the LDP’s answers to the questionnaire.
