Ending the "Blame Game"

Stay tuned for heaps more of this folks. Over and over and over again we heard that Kevin "Earwax Muncher" Rudd was going to end the so called "blame game" and stand up to be counted for what goes on in this country. He was no longer going to hold to account blame incompetent useless bastards State Governments for slipping standards and basically being asleep at the wheel. The new ALP Government is delivering on that promise already. Instead of blaming ALP State Governments, we can now blame John Howard.

Julia "Orange Roughy" Gillard is leading the way in blaming John Howard and "a decade of neglect" on falling standards in our State run schools.

Remember that folks. When your kids can't add up to save themselves it's not because of the politicisation of our school system by rabidly socialist teachers unions, it's John Howards fault. When your kids can't spell "proply" it's not the fault of fat-arsed lazy teachers who can only manage to work 40 weeks per year, it's John Howards fault. When your kids think that movies like Rabbit Proof Fence are actually truthful documentaries it's not the fault of an ALP State Government who is totally inept, it's John Howards fault.

Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard & Co are showing what they really mean when they talk of ending the blame game. Pissweak, eh? Grow a spine Kev.

New Aussie Emblem

The Labor Party have announced they are going to change the emblem from an Emu and a Roo to a condom. It reflects their stance more accurately. A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of pricks and gives you a sense of security while you are actually being fucked.

11 Long Years Mr Howard

We keep hearing, over and over ad nauseum, about how the Liberals have squandered the last 11 years. Well, if I was running the campaign this is one of the ads I'd run in response.

About time

I would have had this one out a while back but better late than never.

Kevin 07 - Oh No!

Get 'em while they're hot folks.

Be the envy of all your friends. Show the world what you think of the arrogant little punce.

Hurry, hurry, hurry unlimited stocks!

I'll debate you anywhere any time!

... except next Sunday in Canberra!

Glass jaw on legs, Kevin Rudd, has shown his true colours on the first day of the campaign. After calling for all sorts of debates, "anywhere, any time", Kevin Rudd has faltered when John Howard suggested a debate this Sunday. Apparently "anywhere, any time" doesn't actually mean anywhere, any time.

What a punce!

Wayne Swan - Spineless Jellyfish

Today's Daily Telegraph hosted a wonderful little Q&A session with would-be treasurer Wayne "Spineless" Swan. It was full of searching a probing questions such as "what is your favourite colour?" and "do you prefer daisies to roses?" so I thought I'd liven it up a bit by asking actual questions. This is what I left:

Wayne, good to see you opened up with the whole “smear campaign” message. The spin doctors will be pleased you stayed on message. To the average punter though, this is simply called “scrutiny”. The ALP has promised a great deal and has yet completely failed to give any specifics on how they will be acheived. To believe you are above scrutiny and to label that scrutiny as a “smear campaign” shows the arrogance of your party.

You say that: “We already know Mr Costello doesn’t have the ticker to challenge Mr Howard for the Liberal leadership and face the Australian people at an election.” Can you please explain to me when it was exactly that Mr Rudd “had the ticker” to challenge for the leadership of the ALP? Was it that time he challenged Mr Beazley or was it that time he challenged Mr Crean. Wait, maybe it was that time he challenged crazy Mark Latham. No, none of those things happened. My recollection is that he was simply the last one standing when Beazley, Crean, Latham and again Beazley fell over. With that sort of record Mr Rudd(bury) should sign up for the Winter Olympics. To be fourth pick after Mark Latham and to somehow believe that he challenged for the leadership is simply hilarious.

On to more specific matters: “He has simply turned his back on mounting cost-of-living pressures weighing on families, particularly soaring grocery prices, petrol prices, childcare and, of course, mortgage payments, after nine straight interest rate rises on his watch.” Please tell me SPECIFICALLY how much cheaper groceries, petrol, childcare, mortgage payments will be with you as treasurer and in light of the recent ALP advertsing (on google, screenshot available if needed) that says that you will “force interest rates down”, what rate are you likely to “force them down” too? While we are at it, what will be the SPECIFIC cost of reducing emmisions by 60%. How much will Mr Garrett’s carbon taxes add to the cost of petrol and electricity?

Lastly, can you please explain to me SPECIFICALLY what an “Education Revolution” is? It sounds terrific but I can’t seem to find anyone who actually knows what it means and what it will cost.

Thanks in advance for your SPECIFIC answers.

I knew he didn't have the guts to commit himself on most of the questions but I thought he had more spine than this:

Don’t get your knickers in a twist mate.
I’ve got an idea: why not give your mates Peter and John a call, tell them to bring the election on, so we can stop losing $1 million a day of taxpayers’ money on political propaganda and let the Australian people decide??
Warm regards, Wayne

What a cock! And this peanut expects to be running our economy by December. Heaven help us!

"BALLS" is coming home late after a night out with the guys smelling of perfume and beer, lipstick on your collar, slapping your wife on the ass and having the balls to say, "You're next!"

I hope this clears up any confusion, The International Council of Manlaws, Ltd.

Kevin Rudd(bury) - Gutless, Cowardly and funny as hell

I had the pleasure of watching the Libs tear Kevin Rudd a new arsehole today in parliament. He has accused the Liberal "dirt unit" of "leaking" the fact that he's had some surgery about 15 years ago. Big deal! The peanut even admits to talking about his surgery years ago on TV. So much for a "leak" eh? He didn't actually have the guts to accuse anybody personally but got his hangers on to have a go on his behalf. What a gutless coward.

The funny part was when he tried to shout down Peter Costello about his leadership ambitions. "Mr Rudd hit back at the Treasurer with a scathing attack on Mr Costello's leadership aspirations, saying he had not been brave enough to challenge John Howard."[This is] arrogance unleashed by the Treasurer, the would-be prime minister of this country who has lacked courage year in year out, month in month out, to have the ticker to do anything about his heartfelt aspirations and ambition to eliminate this man," he said."

That is one of the funniest things I've ever heard. In his own tiny mind he thinks he somehow stood up and challenged for the leadership of his own party. Bullshit! Talk about revising history.

In the traditions of our great Aussie Winter Olympians, he simply was the last man standing when all those in front of him fell over. All hail Kevin Ruddbury and his gold medal leadership challenge!

Let's see... first we had Bomber Beazley, then good old Simon Crean. When they fell over did Kev get the gig? No.. they gave the job to Crazy Mark Latham. When he self destructed did Kev get the gig? No... they gave Bomber another go. When they finally realised how useless Kim was, Kev got his chance. Like the last kid standing when picking sides for a school yard football match. There stood Kev, and when no-one else could be talked into it, he got the job. Not exactly a ringing endorsement, eh? If I was the guy who was last pick after Kim, Simon and Mad Mark I wouldn't be putting it in my resume.

It looks as if he is starting to fray at the edges already and the campaign proper has not even started. Loser.

The funniest part of all this is that Julia Gillard will stab him in the back the minute she gets a chance.

Kevin can't make a decision by himself.

It's been long known that Kevin Rudd has lifted most of his policies from the Libs as it saves the whole "think for yourself" thing. Where he hasn't stolen policies, he has announced "reviews", or "committees" or "task forces" which can then make decisions for him at some mythical point in the future.

Is "audient" the singular of audience?

Just forget the racist message of Reverend Bob "Droopy Dawg" Brown for a moment and check out the "crowd". There are more people wandering about backstage than there are in the audience. This is a classic clip that demonstrates the real influence that Bobby and his doomsday cult have.

Frankly, I think this idiot should have his own nightly TV show so the world can see what a genuine wingnut he is.

Anyone but the greens

I would rather see Paul Keating back as PM or stick pins in my eyes than to see the greens hold any sort of power whatsoever. During the last election a very strange thing happened and Bob "Droopy Dawg" Brown and his dreadlocked ferals were not happy at all. Put simply, some of their whacky policies were actually held up for public scrutiny.

Image Hosted by

Graphic used in the 2004 campaign

This doesn't sit well with the greens as they feel that they are elites who know better than the average pleb and should not have to be subjected to the humiliation of mere mortals questioning there crazy policies. Well, it seems that the greens are coming under renewed scrutiny with the launch of a new site called Greens Watch. It's new but looks alright so-far. Call in, check it out and join in the fun!

Vote 1 - Kevin Rudd

I'm nothing if not a realist. For a while now I've been a John Howard supporter but this Kevin Rudd bloke just looks better and better every day. Let's have a quick look at just some of the major improvements that Big Kev will make once he's got his mob in power.
  • Groceries will be cheaper
  • Petrol will be cheaper
  • Interest rates will never go up again
  • There will be more child-care places
  • Housing will be more affordable
  • Productivity is going up
  • Wages are going up
  • No-one will ever be unfairly dismissed ever again.
  • Unemployment rates will go down
  • He's going to fix climate change and return us to that nice predictable climate we had when we were kids
  • He's going to withdraw our troops from Iraq, returning the place to its former glory as the "utopia of the middle east"
  • No more "skills shortages"

Let's face it... add to that list Rolling back the GST, Medicare Gold and making sure that no Australian child lives in poverty after 1990 and I think we've got our winner! Not bad for a boy who lived in a car, eh?

You CAN teach an old dog new tricks

Whoever said you can't teach an old dog new tricks was wrong. My old dog Rosie has recently developed a bit of a bad habit... farting. The problem is that she sleeps in the garage where, being an Aussie bloke, I happen to spend a bit of time myself. After all, that's where the beer fridge and the drum kit is!

Anyways... she started dropping some wonderful smells which made it difficult to share my humble garage with her. I got the idea that I might be able to train her so I started sending her outside each time she dropped one. It didn't work straight away but after about a week she got the idea. She now farts in the garage then goes outside without having to be told. Pretty smart for an old girl, eh?

Great Quotes

"Listen to the Stage Manager and get onstage when they tell you to. No one has the time for your rock star bullshit. None of the techs backstage care if you're David Bowie or the milkman.

When you act like a jerk, they are completely unimpressed with the infantile display that you might think comes with your dubious status.

They were there hours before you building the stage, and they will be there hours after you leave tearing it down.

They should get your pay and you should get theirs."

Henry Rollins.

Random Thoughts

"War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded
state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is
much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing
which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature
and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of
better men than himself."

It's Time (again)

Look, I'm nothing if not practical. It's looking more and more like Labor may win the next election so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon as well. What I think they really need is a nice catchy song like old Gough had.

Do you remember the whole "It's Time" thing? Let's bring it back eh?

It's Time.

It's time for Combet, It's time for Shorten
It's time for Kevin, yes it's time.

It's time for Christmas beer strikes, it's time for Easter petrol strikes
It's time for award wages, yes it's time.

It's time for Garretts carbon tax, it's time to sign Kyoto
It's time to invest in windfarms, yes it's time.

It's time for Medicare gold, it's time for compulsory unionism
It's time for Gillard's cronies, yes it's time.

It's time for high unemployment, it's time to raise interest rates
It's time for a recession, yes it's time.

Live Earth Stars Come Clean On "Carbon Neutral Hypocrisy"

As we all know some of Australia's, and indeed the World's, biggest and most influential music stars are coming together to perform at a series of concerts known as Live Earth.

Lily Sobhani, Live Earth’s Global Head of Events reports;
“Live Earth Australia will kick off 24 hours of music spanning all 7 continents to focus the world against global warming,” Wall said. “Over 100 headlining artists ranging from Madonna to The Police to Wolfmother, all of whom are donating their time to perform at the concerts, will inspire an audience of over 2 billion people. Live Earth is designed to trigger a mass movement to combat our climate crisis. The climate crisis touches everyone, everywhere. Live Earth is about motivating people in every corner of the planet to ‘Answer the Call’ and make meaningful and lasting changes in their lives to combat global warming.”

Originally the concerts were to be rendered "Carbon Neutral" in order to offset the massive amount of rare and rapidly depleting resources that an event such as this needs to operate. Tickets were to be printed on recycled paper and public transport was to be included in the ticket price.

After careful consideration of the genuine environmental impact of these concerts, some of the artists have imposed strict environmental guidelines on the organisers. The following changes will be made to enable the concerts to be completely "Gaia friendly".

  • The recycled paper tickets will now be scrapped in favour of free entry. A spokesperson was heard to say that "charging people to hear music was a capitalist activity that was not in harmony with the spirit of the event".
  • The concert will now be held during daylight hours only due to the vast amount of power that the lighting system would need.
  • No PA system will be used as, again, it just draws too much power. Promoters are asking that "patrons please be quiet during the show and they should probably try to crowd towards the front a bit".
  • No electric intruments will be tolerated nor will instruments be allowed that are made of rare substances such as wooden guitars and drums. Instruments that use strings will also not be allowed as they are generally made of steel or nylon which both generate huge amounts of greenhouse gases in their manufacture.
  • Artists will not be permitted to use planes to or non-hybrid cars to transport themselves and their crews to the gig. A fleet of push bikes was to be utilised for all transport needs but it was found that some of them had oil on the chains and paint on the frames, both of which are just plain evil.
  • All food products that contain meat will be banned due to their methane impact. "Not-Dogs" have come on board as the official caterers.
  • All recordings of the event will be given away free to anyone who wants them as we should never try to profit from the Earths environmental problems.

A spokesperson for the performers says that they all welcome and fully support the changes in order to prove that they are genuine in their desire to change the climate for the better.

"Look, we were going to do the whole 'carbon offset' thing but in reality we all know it's bullshit. The amount of trees that would have to be planted to offset massive power use such as this was just unrealistic and we all know that when the tree dies, the carbon is released again anyway. What we are doing here is groundbreaking. We are sweeping aside all the 'so-called' environmentalists and saying enough is enough. No more hypocrisy for us. We are stars and should be examples to the rest of the public so that they can continue to adore us with a clear conscience."

There is no political bias at the ABC right?

First we had Mega Maxine throwing her hat into the ring to oust the evil HoWARd.

Now we have Mike Bailey, the king of all TV weather readers, having a crack.

Nope, no political bias here folks, move along... nothing to see.

It's also nice to see "the party of the workers" fielding genuine candidates too, eh?

From a concerned reader

Dear Gibbo,

I think my wife is cheating on me. I am a travelling musician and note strange things when I come home. Her mobile phone rings and she steps outside or says "call me later..." When I ask her who called she gets evasive. Sometimes she goes out with friends but comes home late, getting dropped off around the corner and walking the rest of the way home. I once picked up the extension phone while she was talking and she got very angry.

A friend of mine plays guitar in a band. He told me my wife and some guy shows up sometimes at their gig. He wanted to borrow my amp. That's when I got the idea to find out for myself. I said: "Sure you can use my amp but I want to hide behind it and see if she comes into the club and who with." He agreed.

Saturday night came. I slipped behind my Marshall JCM800 half stack to get a good view. I could feel the heat coming off the back of the amp. It was at that moment, crouching down, when I noticed one of my power tubes was not glowing like the other three.

Is this something I can fix myself or do I need to take it to a technician ?


Very Concerned.

All Australian Internet Radio Station

Howdy Folks, I just wanted to let you know about a brand new, all Australian, internet radio station that I've set up just this week. We've already got quite a decent playlist of original Aussie acts such as Goldrush, Mark Johnson, VonSonic, Bandanna, HiFi Reactor, Talback Radio, Someone Your Not, Kasey Chambers, INXS and many more.
Tune in for a listen at

If you know of anyone with decent, original Aussie music that might want some airplay then please pass the link along to them or send them to for more info.

I'd love to hear what you think of it so-far.

Cheers, Gibbo

There is a bit of controversy over trials at the moment after the Roosters lost Chris Flannery for an extended period with a broken leg in a trial on Saturday. The coaches say that the players need a pre-season run but then strangely don't field them. As you can see from the list of scorers for both sides above that most of the players weren't regular first graders anyway. I don't get it? If I was a country resident hoping to see some big names I'd be pissed off too.

The Rugby League is almost upon us.

Ahhh... my favourite time of the year is almost upon us. Rugby League season. My beloved Eels have a bunch of new, young folk coming through and a brand new coach so top 8 is the best I'm hoping for this year. I'm not yet convinced about Finch either but I'll bite my tongue until I see him paired with Smith.

A couple of rule changes I would have like to have seen were, first, to get rid of the mongrel "Golden Point" and second to get rid of the dreaded "Double Movement".

The golden point is just plain crap. It puts our game down to the level of soccer with its' ridiculous Penalty Shootouts. Sometimes a draw is an honourable result. The only exeption might be in a Grand Final and then I'd rather a "Golden Try".

The double movement is also wrong. In my opinion, if you can reach out and get the ball over the line and ground it then it's a try. Simple as that. It's moronic that it gets you a penalty and not a try.

Whaddya reckon?

Girls, it's NOT OUR FAULT! Music and sport is in our genes ....

Here's another classic study of human nature from my old pal Stix.

FOR centuries, women have complained about their blokes not helping out around the cave.

The fellas are dispatched to the doghouse for browsing through the sports section of the paper or twanging away on their guitar, while their wives whirl around the kitchen preparing kids' lunch boxes and doing the dishes, all the while flailing away with a cluster of chook feathers, flicking dust from every flat surface within arm's reach.

The male of the species dutifully endures his lot without so much as a snarl (because that would provoke ``an incident'', and he has learnt from experience not to do that -- or his hopes of watching the cricket henpeckless will turn to dust and be flicked into the realm of farce).

But now the truth has been exposed, and it's time for AN APOLOGY! No! Not from us, dammit ... from all those spiteful spouses who relentlessly harangued us to perform domestic duties which, put plainly, are scientifically impossible for us.

Yep, it's true. A new study has been released which confirms that men physically cannot do housework.

It turns out that, because of an inexplicable genetic oversight of the part of The Creator, men are simply incapable of seeing dirt until there is enough of it to sprout a crop of potatoes. That, of course, gives women -- who can spot an atom of dust at the far end of a cricket pitch -- an unfair domestic advantage.

This is the reason a married couple can both be looking at the same family kitchen, and the man - peering through his haze of double-helix handicap - sees a sink which is so spotless you could perform liver transplants on it.

His wife, on the other hand - innately hawk-eyed by virtue of her double-shelix chromosomes - recoils at the sight of a seething, sink-shaped mass of bacteria which is moving threateningly in the direction of her children.

After more than an hour scouring the sink plug-hole with sulphuric acid-based cleaning gel, a woman is still convinced it is way too grubby for dinner guests to see.

But if you asked a man to clean the entire City Circle railway tunnel, he'd go down the steps at Town Hall with a bottle of Windex and a single paper towel, and emerge 25 minutes later at Museum, weary but satisfied with a job well done.

When I first mentioned this amazing scientific fact to my friends and workmates, some of them -- okay, all of the women -- declared I was a chauvanistic pig who was simply trying to camouflage the fact that most men are just bone lazy.

But hey, this study in the eminent Boston Medical Journal, entitled Why Men Can't Do Housework, is based on irrefutable scientific proof.

It states, in terms which even bone lazy chauvanistic swine can fathom, that ``men's brains perceive far less sensory detail than women's brains, meaning that the household dust and domestic mess that their partners see is virtually invisible to them''.

So there you have it! It's not our fault! Blame the Higher Power or Mother Nature or even Old Mother Hubbard. Anybody but us.

And that's not the only difference between male and female brains. There is a section of the frontal lobe called the ``maculus effluvium'', in which basic emotions originate. The afforementioned study fails to give more detail about it, but in female brains I imagine the ``maculus effluvium'' would be roughly the size of a coconut, holding a vast stockpile of complex, constantly-revised emotional data aimed at punishing anyone who can't see dirt properly; whereas in men it is basically a jelly bean filled with One-Day Cricket, Bledisloe Cup and State-of-Origin highlights, plus a few snippets about playing the drums or strumming on your Strat.

In women, the ``maculus effluvium'' also exudes a pheremone called ``dopamine'', which, according to the study, give women an overpowering urge to go shopping. No, no, no, I'm joking about that bit.

Women don't need dopamine to make them hunt down new handbags. They just need a credit card. Preferably their partner's.

But anyway, this study just goes to show that women are wasting their time trying to make men help with the housework -- unless they have the remote control and you are practising a few licks while you wait for the big game to start.

In which circumstance, there is only one thing left to say: ``Sorry darling, I’ll put me axe away right now, and

... erm, pass me the chook feathers ''.
