I still call Austria Gnome?
Just sing Eidelweiss everyone….
Is Jasper well enough to move to New York?
We’ll need more diplomats now that we have to suck the toes of the other permanent members as well as USA.
Well how dumb are those countries if they thought they wer voting for Austria?!
What the heck did they think the chocolate koalas were? Particularly chubby, big-eared Austrian chamois (Rupicapra rupicapra)?
Good one, dog#1 as always – and big congrats on your Walkley nomination; we all want to see you go Walk(l)ies
I second that Drovers Cat. Good luck FD.
Small and white, Eielweiss, bless our first dog for ever.
Just behave when you are out. K?
The monstrous power of a chocolate drop bear is finally unleashed.
Geneva……Be very afraid.
Or maybe a lonely goatherd would do as well.
Love the foot rub reference Firstdog. F*ck Finland indeed!
It’s fortunate they opted for the chocolate koalas – we may have lost the deal with Chico rolls. Or pie floaters.
FD: Absolutely beyond brilliant ‘toon. FFS what does the Security Council do?
Do we have to turn everything into a game? Surely this has to be the ultimate Pyhrric victory?
For Gød’s sake, we are a quarry, not a nation.
That`s not a foot. Yer but its a good 10 inches; not bad for 200 year old ay?
Mighty Luxembourg also won a seat. Wtf?
ANDREW: That just about says it all. Well done!
FD: I’ll add my best wishes to DROVER’S CAT re the Walkley Awards.
Luxembourg. Size and population roughly equivalent to the ACT. Now THAT’S what I call “punching above your weight”…
Do we get to change the colour of the helicopters? Something irreverent and egalitarian.
Dear Lord Dogonthemoon
HRH Queen Elizabeth’s corgis have unanimously granted you a Lorddom and so henceforth you will be known as Lord Dogonthemoon. But does this mean that your column will forever more be known as First Dog with a Walkley?
Has anyone here received a spam ostensibly from Gina Reinhart? I have, and it’s weird.
Venise, I trust she’s not trying to sting you for $$$ as temporary bridging.
If I’ve understood it correctly……wait for it…..she/he/they are asking ME for $100,000,000,000 for CHARITY….don’t ask me who Charity is?
I told you, it’s weird, if somewhat unique.
