    Julia’s laugh has left my laugh exhausted from laughing so much.

    That last panel has got to be a T-Shirt!

    PM gillard will be in the run on side for the semi-finals this spring…

    I agree with Jenny

    We need a separate pic of Gillard as full forward for the Dogs/Prime Minister.

    Best cartoon this year! Genuine LOL stuff. My own laugh has been hauled off to the ER suffering paroxysms.

    Ooh, she’s clever.
    Yet again she’s successfully diverted attention from her real takeover target.
    It’s obvious to me that she’s really after the job of a veteran goal-sneak #21 who’s shorts would appear to fit her. Don’t be surprised to see her sporting a black goatee soon.

    Actually… I just made up that bit about laughing out loud. Sometimes in the heat of a comment you just say things that go a little bit further…

    Just to clarify – I meant the last panel of the cartoon with the laugh having a fit – not the photoshopped footy player.

    As good as this is FD I fear you will lose audience to the News. No political cartoon could be as excruciatingly and whimsically funny as the politicians themselves. They are staging such a good distraction that I sometimes wonder what we are being distracted from.

    Doggy, funny, of course, but chock-full of truth too ! Why is it that there is a feeling like the time Hayden got rolled by Hawke ? And Hawke by Keating ? Answer: because the time was right – both times.

    Pearl of the day “Sometimes Kerry, I get a bit excited and just make shit up!”

    What if there IS a Santa ? A Rudd-free and an Abbott-free Christmas ! Yay !

    How much fun can you have with one ‘toon ? Answer: Heaps !

    “ad- : a prefix occurring in loanwords from Latin, where it meant “toward” and indicated direction …”

    Going-forward, I think the correct term to use is “adDeputy Prime Minister”.
