    I LOVE your punchable gloating face Firstdog. Is there any way that I can get that as a mask on a stick to hold up to my face as I walk past the Herald Sun offices in Southbank of a morning?

    There must be a place in your office where you can irritate that old sphincter Farmer and watch him choke his lumpy bits; His wit & wisdom join the Main Sewer Media at the bile filled hack entry and just keeps on getting funnier and funnier as he gets more frustrated and angrier.

    Haha yes the ‘attack fop’ braying away having a good old attack fap was very entertaining. I keenly await the sequel.

    And congratulations on the continued progress of the dog juggernaut to media domination with the Walkies nomination.

    ‘…a jar of Pet er Slipp ers…’ – Mr Dog is en forme. And it’s only Monday.

    That paywall has effectively cut them off and walled them all in – entombed in the Old Publishing mire.

    I thought Conroy and Brown had had more to say about “vaginas”?

    What’s *truly* adorable about this toon FD, is that I’m sure you enjoyed drawing it as much as we enjoyed reading it.


    P.S. Extra points today for the paywall snark.

    Ah, the readers are revolting … still/again.

    And yes, Zut, nice to think of the paywalls as constructing the mausoleum of Old Publishing.

    This is what happens when readers go feral, finding other places to satisfy their curiosity – tired of a tabloid diet of predigested pap – they start thinking for themselves?
    [A little knowledge might be a bad thing – but it hasn’t stood in the way of quite few hacks making a career out of prejudice.]

    It’s the end of the world as they know it – and we feel fine.

    re ‘punchable gloating face’ :

    be vigilant, Firsty, remember what happened to Crikey’s venerable founder, Mr Mayne, at the 2006 Walkley’s p*ss up. Mind you, it gave him hero status for a while.
