Protecting our precious thingies from teh Muzlims

Posted September 30, 2014 into Blunty by John Birmingham

Telling, that the first kommunt on today's Blunty is from somebody who could miss the point for Straya at the 'lympics'.

Like you, I often find myself wandering the streets of our fair city wondering, what can I do to protect our precious Aussie way of life?

"Heaps!" is the answer, especially if I'm carrying a can of spray paint and there's a handy mosque nearby. Nothing threatens our precious Aussie ways and freedoms as much as a nearby mosque that hasn't been spray painted with slogans like "Get the fuck out of our country".

To which Dave replies:

""We didn't fight Hitler at Gallipoli just so a bunch of ... yadda yadda yadda"

Well ... that's because we didn't actually fight him at Gallipoli, the Gallipoli campaign was WW1, during WW2 in Hitler's reign Turkey was neutral.

Goddammit John check your history before publishing.

that first comment reminded me of this site - http://literallyunbelievable.org/

It never ceases to amaze me just how idiotic some ppl can be, and how easily 'offended' when uncomfortable truths are pointed out to them

Sometimes it's a bit difficult to tell the difference between Blunt commenters who are genuinely obtuse and those who are mocking the obtuseness of others.

Someone also made the excellent point that it's only the Christian god botherers who turn up at your door early in the morning trying to convert you.
Attention Jehovah's Witnesses: If I answer the door in my jammies, don't say "I know you're busy, but ... ". If I was busy, I wouldn't be wearing the jammies.

That was a brilliant piece, even though the typical aussie bogan is such an easy target. Needs to be said sometimes. Technically we did fight against Hitler in WW1 just not at that steep beach place. And not against him personally, seeing he was just one of the Hun hordes.

I'm in two minds about the amount of sarcasm on twitter like those ASIO tweets. Sure it's piss funny but i wonder if it is counterproductive sometimes - like signing your name to an online petition, just a useless waste of time - you send a cutting remark on twitter with the latest hashtag about the impending police state and you feel like you have done your bit for standing up to the man. Then the man just keeps on doing what he does best because, hell, everyone is at home on twitter instead of doing something about it.

On saying that - i can also see the benefit. There is nothing like ridicule to make something insignificant - like the reaction to the frightbat thing. The satire makes it look ridiculous and you can't be scared of something that is laughable.

oh and one more thing - ties in nicely with the Terry Pratchett post the other day.
Whilst meandering around that link to the reasons to read Pratchett, the quotes page has this from Small Gods:

"Fear is a strange soil. Mainly it grows obedience like corn, which grows in rows and makes weeding easy. But sometimes it grows the potatoes of defiance, which flourish underground"

I don't mean to put him into an already premature grave but he will be one of the first people i will have to tip a drink to when he goes. Never do that over public figures (unless i know them personally . . . which i don't). I've invested so much time in his books that you feel like you have been exposed to the inner workings of brilliance.

Yes I read that first communt this morning and nearly sprayed coffee all over the laptop.

I know I shouldn't read the communts, but sometimes I can't look away.

I know I shouldn't read the comments. I know I will be disappointed and angry with myrself for reading the comments. But I read them anyway and blame JB because no way is it my fault that I feel angry and stupid for reading the comments.

Gold, My Birmingham, just gold. And thank you for the Myall Creek reminder.

Did you spot Ms Vanstone putting the elbow in yesterday? I was shocked, much as I was when Mr Ruddock did similar last month. It does seem remarkable that we now have two former Liberal munsters of detention saying they think Mr Morrison might perhaps have gone a little too far.

Poor Dave just jumped in a bit early. I think if he'd actually read the whole column the penny might have dropped.

My favourite recent comment showing a lack of comprehension was to JB's column about the Brisbane City Council wanting to fine people $5000 for enjoying parks in groups of more than 50.

Paul commented

Open tag alert.

Anyway, what Paul commented was
"I don't think we should be blaming the Greeks for all the trouble. Fair go please."

Which gave me a chuckle.

Yeah, sleepy. I tried that last time.

p.s. Though I did wonder if the Paul comment was PNB being playful.

Playful? I was attempting poignant.

w from brisbane swirls their brandy and claims...

Posted September 30, 2014
PNB, I did get a poignancy, a plaintiveness.

'Fair go please.' a lovely coda to a gently expressed thought that wasn't in the spirit of the pursed-lip, acidic, hateful, hubristic peevishness of true derp.
I didn't care if Paul missed the point. I like the bloke.

the only reason it dont fkn work, is that Camels are not compatible with horses!....er

something like that! I guess

Paul_Nicholas_Boylan mumbles...

Posted September 30, 2014
But they are comparable. Camel tastes better than horse. If you cook it right. I know this from personal experience.

I was told today that you can "tell when they're serious because they shave their top lip." I restrained myself.


Some people are desperately needing multiple sharp punches to the noggin. It may be unprofessional of me to supply them.


To prove my membership & Bona Fides of Team 'Straya, I shall now have another bacon sammich for my lunch. The first was a bit American - over cooked bacon.


Oh and JB "Faux Derp" = Gold with gold sprinkles.

Not as good as the 2nd, with tomato, tabasco & spinach leaves.


Bacon should not shatter when cut or bit, it should be malleable to a degree.

Forgive me. My mistake. I confused you with someone who knows something about bacon and the powerful correctness of the American Way.
