more statues to deal with...

statues

Nothing that solid steel bollards could not do...

The case against Monsanto is the gift that keeps on giving.

there is fake news and there is "stupid news"...

"email"

There is fake news and strange stuff that actually means nothing... If this email is legit, then the business people, especially Felix Sater, who seem to make deals like Tom and Jerry, write like Donald Duck and speak like Sylvester the cat, are idiots. They are also like Scrooge married to the witch in Snow White, and Mr Magoo allied with Al Capone and our treasurer Scomo who said something about the ASIS investigation into the CBA that made as much sense as Popeye with a mouth full of spinash.

of "negative" positivity and the tanking of religion in the west...

old and new

endeavour

Who would have thought the mere suggestion that Captain Cook did not in fact discover Australia would be so controversial?


vale jerry... his replacement has us crying in the aisles...

 

jerry

Jerry Lewis, the comedian and filmmaker who was adored by many, disdained by others, but unquestionably a defining figure of American entertainment in the 20th century, died on Sunday morning at his home in Las Vegas. He was 91.

the aussie women champions...

cricket

This cartoon of a woman cricketer by Minns, published in 1885 at The Bulletin, shows a certain amusing sexism. Sports cartoons in these days illustrated:
