Did you get to share a ditch with Leigh Sales?
MR ON THE MOON: Doggone it Mr Dawg; you are Ace!
So … which face was it? Overcome, overjoyed … ?
Complete world marsupial-oriented-political-commentary domination can’t be far off now!
Congrats. Shame your name only got mentioned at the end over the credits – I had taped the whole program. Would have been MUCH more fun to see you do the either ar*e-licking or drunken speech (maybe even someone from the audience leaping on stage for a stoush …. or am I getting that mixed up with a previous year). Well never mind.
Which of your cartoons won? My top favourite was ‘Citius, Altius, Fortius’. You know – the one about the Olympic effort of a person trying to get ready for work, for whom ‘breakfast is a xanax and a cup of tea … Leaving the tea half-finished she heads back to bed … Last time she only made it as far as the floor in the hallway …. Oh what a competitor!’ (as she sinks back under the doona). Have I had days like that or what.
You thoroughly deserve the gong HD.
PS sorry to hear about Jasper PM’s demise if that was true.
Thanks EMC. Crack out the Krug, Dogonauts!
yes Zut all true. News on twitter with pic of some strange human holding the dog’s award
Can it be true? How do we know FD won – where are the results available?
The telecast on SBS isn’t until 9.40pm so where else is there coverage?
“Boston the Dog” wishes FD all the best for tomorrow. May you win a lifetime supply of Good-O’s.
Good luck, Dawg.
I hope you win it FD!
OMG I can’t stand the suspense!
Huh! Walkleys shmalkleys! You are my NUMERO UNO cartoonist! (Apart from Doonesbury of course. Oops! DOH!)
We at MSN (Marsupial Support Network) are currently rehearsing our ‘Jazz Paws’ salute in the event you win! Toi Toi Toi!
Happy Walk(l)eys FD. Bet you get the trophy tennis ball.
Thnx…you kept my wife and I chuckling thru some anxious and exhausting times. Two thumbs up from us. Good luck!
We put the clock up with our wine bottles and colourful dessert glasses. Seems to fit. 😀
Isn’t it “The Wobbly’s”?
Who’s up for the “Glen Milne Wobbly Boot Award” ….. or should that be “down”?
Watching the PM in full flight in Question Time I suggest amendments to tonight’s Lodge menu: roasted Rabbott and a case of ’90 Krug from the cellar. Yowser.
Congratulations, Australia, on having a National Treasure like First Dog on the Moon to do your cartooning political gratification for you. Also congratulations to the Walkley Foundation for putting together the perfect material for a pun with a Dog character winning a WALKley OMG it’s just perfect. Ahahahaha.
Oh yeah, take lots of pills and drink heaps!
‘…an event so exciting I cannot even begin to tell you…’
I reckon it’s an informal pizza night at The Lodge with a handful of the inner circle. Hopefully, a party-sized supreme plus a seafood special washed down with plenty Grange.
Re the Walkley: Sic ’em, Firsty!
Not to get too serious about something that doesn’t really matter (if you don’t win) because it’s all about dead media and all that; and not to get your hopes up too much for something that doesn’t really define your true worth as an artist … but … I reckon you’re a dead cert. And there’s no more deserving.
But. If you do lose and Judy Horacek wins you MUST do the fist-shaking ‘Horacek!!!’ to the cameras in your very best Colonel Klink voice.
At times like this FD, it’s always wise to wear the “magnanimous” face.
So I’ll resist the almost irresistible urge to be snarky and merely wish you good luck for Friday.
(Note the admirable lack of Glen Milne jokes.)
Is there another kind of construct?
Nice fist-waving, and Good Luck!
Good Luck FD.
Good luck with the artificial construct FD !
