For over a year now, foreign English teachers have had to be drugs tested. It’s a bit of a hassle but no biggie. It was mainly a move by the gubnit to satiate the anti-foreigner groups over here, who see us, even though we’re university-educated and have the balls to uproot and have God-like patience, as basically the scum of Wetsern society (if only they knew).

It’s ironic, since drugs are hard to come by over here, and so expensive any “high” is quickly quelled (mind you, soju is as cheap as chips and big pharma is having a field day… I mean, really, around seven different pills nowadays to combat a common cold???). I mean that, even if someone did smoke pot or pop disco biscuits back home, it’s not likely they’re gonna do so here.

Anyway, it got me thinking. This happens occasionally. If Western governments really wanted to get rid of their so-called drug problem, then why not make it mandatory for all employers to require a drugs test of their employees? And for those receiving welfare benefits to also be routinely drugs tested.

But Western governments will never do this. Just follow the idea to it’s logical conclusion (oops, maybe they will). Heck, even the Korean gubnit only mandates it on foreign English teachers. And that’s only to appease a rather large group of xenophobic wankers.

It was a mistake

So sez da Prez.

Yep, a $328,835 mistake. But Barack claims he didn’t know. If that’s actually true, then WHY didn’t he know? When you can photoshop such an op so easily anyway… oh dear Obama, lucky you’re not Bush… yet.

In class today…

As usual, I had to correct the students a few times in class today. Here’s some examples.

A: Can you go to a soccer game with me on Saturday?

B: I’m sorry. I can’t. I have to go to a soccer game.


A: Can you go skating with me on Sunday?

B: I’m sorry. I can’t. I have to wound my leg.


A: I’ve made a decision.

B: What is it?

A: I’ve decided to stop biting my nails.

B: That’s great! Have you ever tried to stop biting my nails before?


Think it’ll be a while yet, folks, before we get that one world language.

Australia: Not just an island, but a hella scary one too!

For some unknown reason, recently the most popular Google searches leading to our site have been “Australia Map” and  Australian Flag” and variations thereof  (barely – just barely – beating out “goatse” and “sarah plain naked,” it must be said.)

The “Australia Map” searches almost always lead to a post on Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s keen observation on the ABC’s 7:30  Report back in 2008 that “Australia is not an island”:

However, our own Wizard of Woz has unearthed an even more accurate map of Australia which may give the rather pedestrian version above a run for its money in the page-impressions stakes:

The following ad campaign by our Alt-Tourism Authority would seem to back this up:


UPDATE: Australia has crazy-wild spiders.  Hey!  More cool spiders!

What the hey?

This is just nasty. I know Canadians are a pretty liberal bunch but this is taking things waaay too far.

POLICE have arrested a young naked couple after they were discovered having sex in the back of a garbage truck.
