tis definitely time for levity.. much too serious at this party

At dawn the telephone rings, “Hello, Senor Rod? This is Ernesto, the caretaker at your country house.” “Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?” “Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your parrot, he is dead” My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?” “Si, Senor, that’s the one.” “Damn! That’s a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. What did he die from?” “From eating the rotten meat, Senor Rod.” “Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?” “Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse.” “Dead horse? What dead horse?” “The thoroughbred, Senor Rod.” “My prize thoroughbred is dead?” “Yes Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart.” “Are you insane?? What water cart?” “The one we used to put out the fire, Senor.” “Good Lord!! What fire are you talking about, man??” “The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire.” “What the hell?? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed because of a candle?? !!” “Yes, Senor Rod.” “But there’s electricity at the house!! What was the candle for?” “For the funeral, Senor Rod.” “WHAT BLOODY FUNERAL??!!” “Your wife’s, Senor Rod”, she showed up very late one night and I thought she was a thief, so I hit her with your new tailor made Super Quad 460 golf club.” SILENCE . . . . . . . . . . . LONG SILENCE . . . . . . . . . . “Ernesto, if you broke that driver, you’re in deep shit!!”

I clicked on over to our SiteMeter page, and had a look at the map of the last 500 visitors.

There are some pretty interesting places there.


NZ man claims ‘rape by Aussie wombat’

Via Yahoo7


A New Zealand man has been sentenced to 75 hours’ community service for telling police he was being raped by a wombat.

In a later call to police, Cradock retracted the wombat rape complaint, but said the incident had left him with an Australian accent.


Don’t ask, Angus, don’t ask.

A bad day for Inane J. 1, 2, 3… Awwww


Another green does some Garretting of the facts on plastic bags:

Clean Up Australia chief executive Kerrie-Ann Johnson yesterday insisted the impact of plastic bags on marine life had not been exaggerated. “It is a very big issue,” Ms Johnson said.

Asked to identify studies supporting her claim, Ms Johnson said one by the Australian Marine Conservation Society had concluded that 90 per cent of albatross chicks had bag remnants in their gullets.

AMCS national campaign manager Craig Bohan said his organisation had not conducted any such study.

Is it just me, or did April Fooling start early this year?

A Persian gent jailed in Dubai claims to be acting as an ambassador for the Hutt River Principality.

I’d guess that many West Australians regard the Hutt Royal Family more with affection than disdain. Even today, a hundred years and more after Federation, the idea of WA seceding from the Commonwealth gets a regular run – everyone talks about it, but Prince Leonard just rolled up his sleeves and did it.

Australia clearly doesn’t tax us poor residents enough if they’ve started to tax English folks.
