    Armageddon firstdog? I can’t wait for the next instalment…

    This is why I love you.

    Jiminy cricket, Mr Onthemoon, not again!

    There’s a sense of deja vu here: we are reminded of the Budget Week cartoon where our intrepid First Dog answered his mobile phone and was rendered all gushy and overcome with awe by the mystery caller. That was the last time we read ‘to be continued’ but we still don’t know who the hell was on the other end of the phone. Give us a break, we’ve lost sleep over this.

    ‘ to be continued’ – yeah, right…

    How typical of the newly crowned “cartoon laureate”. He fires off a blinder and leaves us all in suspense, so he can bugger off to Bali to spend time with his new elephant friends. šŸ™‚

    Oh faithless, funny hound. We’ll sure miss you for the next week or so. šŸ™

    First Dog – do you know yet whether the new PM has any pets? (And I’m not talking about Tim.)

    I hope you will also continue to follow the exciting adventures of Abby and Jasper… any cat that can say power ‘corrupts absolutely, and I love it’ needs to be kept under close scrutiny!

    To be continued? On a fscking Friday! FFS!

    I think Jasper will ditch the crybabies and stay on in Canberra, setting up camp in the Scabby Range Nature Reserve.
    From there he will connect with other former Labor malcontents, Mark Latham, Peter Walsh, Gary Johns and Michael Costa to form a crazed militia that will receive its instructions from the Ghost of Mal Colston.
    Prime Minister Gillard will recall the troops from Afghanistan to defend against the guerilla attack, but they will be vanquished at the Battle of Capital Hill.
    Abby will finally realise that she is the only sane creature in Canberra and set out to reason with the Colonel Kurtz-like Jasper.
    It doesn’t end well.

    EMC: I think you hit the nail on the redhead. So to speak. šŸ™‚

    The powerfox is way too smart to try evicting Jasper.
    That’s why she’s refusing to move in to The Lodge.
    Mind you, she’ll be playing the long game for sure.
    Tempting him out with a variety of tasty morsels.
    A sliver of Tony Abbott’s penis here.
    A smidgeon of that famously rare delicacy, Phillip Ruddock’s heart.
    Hell, call in Matt Preston and we could stage an entire “celebrity episode” of Masterchef at the gates of The Lodge. šŸ™‚
