Kate scandalette all nork and no action? Think again …

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was last seen being borne through the streets of Honiara, capital of the Solomon Islands, in a vehicle decked out to look like a ceremonial canoe.

Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, was last seen being borne through the streets of Honiara, capital of the Solomon Islands, in a vehicle decked out to look like a ceremonial canoe. Sweet scene, pure Gauguin. Now, that would have been a time to get the baps out … the native queen-to-be, moving among her people, like Venus arising from the waves …

    Loved “infrared-top”.

    Hated “an areola-to-nipple ratio of about three on the Cheezel scale of 1-5”

    I get your pun all nork no action, but there was (as you noted toward the end) fork all nork either.

    “The Star is sub-tabloid — a sort of infrared-top — which features stories of about 45 words apiece, n-ked birds, boy-eats-own-foot stories and … well look, you’ve seen the Brisbane Times.” When did Rundle last visit Brisbane? There is a very fine newspaper here, on-line free via Fairfax, which any thinking Queenslander should be reading twice a day. Puts everything else in the shade, including Crikey, with hard-hitting coverage in depth of local politics and links to wider stories and articles well over 45 words and nary a naked bird that I can find. Rundle may need to talk to his own defamation lawyers.

    Guy Rundle, I love your american politics coverage. What happened? Were you worried that your readers were thinking “That Guy, he is so highbrow, getting on for Newsroom sanctimonious”? Had to lower the tone a bit? I only read this article because you wrote it and I was expecting something along the lines of – who gives a rats for this kind of t-tillation? I chuckled over the “Now would have been a time to get the baps out … the native queen-to-be, moving among her people, like Venus arising from the waves …” but then I got to “an areola-to-nipple ratio of about three on the Cheezel scale of 1-5”. Jeezus, I thought you were cleverer than that…Perhaps it pissed you off having to even cover this dross. I hope so.

    Hey, GR, why not get your fat arse off that Soho barstool and try to get a face-to-face with Assange? (P. Adams scored one, though maybe he knew JA from way back?). Anyway if you want to write about something readers would like:

    [No Assange DNA on torn condom – report September 17, 2012
    Forensic experts have failed to find crucial DNA evidence in the sexual assault case against Julian Assange … his lawyers suggest that is because a fake one may have been submitted..]

    If this is correct, one wonders if the Swedish legal case is about to collapse? (And will the Brits still pursue him for breaking bail?)

    I agree Scott the Brisbane Times is the best place for Brisbane/Qld news even though it’s only available online. Read the Courier Mail on the BCC library website for free if you must look at it in full. As for this little story well I didn’t bother google the description is enough.

    GR was possibly being sardonic about the BT. Either that or he has a d!ck measuring contest of long standing with John Birmingham.

    For God’s sake Guy, FFS what does it matter if the Duchess is photographed bare breasted? If people weren’t so obsessed about the subject of tits the vendors of this tripe wouldn’t have a market.

    No Guy, wrong again, Britannia Minor is Brittany not Ireland. still what’s a fact 0r two eh?
