    Yes, red-herrings and century-old carps – best friends of Australia’s Liberal Media Party.

    It’s a good thing Toady’s standing on Brough’s shoulders?

  3. TheFamousEccles

    Thanks for the link, rhwombat.

  4. Andrew L

    Excellent comment on the commentariat

    “pugilistic mustelid” Thank you, rhwombat!

    ANDYBOB: Sorry, I just had to enter the spirit of your fantastic effort.

    ANDYBOB: Could you have signed it……..why not?

  8. Venise Alstergren

    ANDYBOB: Strictly top of the class. Olé. Could have signed it ‘The Lord High Executioner?’

    Just the same Stevo, I would count me fingers afterwards.
    Klewso; you could be right. The abbut has huge buccan-ears.

    It’s a fair cop, guv’nor.

    @stevo, I think of the press gallery as houseflies – quite capable of spending their lives buzzing around inside an empty jar, but happiest hanging around a big stink.

    “Things are seldom what they seem”?

    @drmick, I do wish people would stop this relentless slander on the species Carassius auratus auratus. They have been shown to have rather good attention spans relative to the size of their brain. I liken the press gallery more to magpies – the are easily distracted by shiny objects, are known to hoard and be reluctant to let go of things that are no longer relevant or useful, and are prone to swooping on innocent people without warning. On the plus side though, they can be quite friendly and will even eat out of your hand.

    Oh look! Is that lint in your navel Toady?

    Neat work, Andybob.

    Drovers cat has come up with a fine idea. Alternatively we may call it the 2012 Dog Dis(h) Awards.

  17. drmick

    Nice work rhwombat; the spin cycle will be set to full speed for that one.
    The puss gallery are going to get you FD if you keep comparing their concentration span to a goldfish on speed.

    Champion, Andybob. I think the original was a hit for Gilbert O’Sullivan if memory serves.

    Dog#1, in the spirit of every other publication at this time of year, perhaps you could consider holding a Top 20 of your best skewerings of personailities your ‘toons have carried out in 2012. Lounge members will happily vote, I am sure.
    We could call it the 2012 Dog Food Awards.
    Then again, Tony Abbott would win the first 12 spots hands down .. or would he?

  19. paddy

    Really FD.
    It’s simply not cricket to slag off Tony’s pal Mal like that.

    P.S. Awesome stuff Andybob.

  20. ianjohnno1

    Thanks, rwh. Mustelid is a new word for me and it’s a beauty.

  21. rhwombat

    Interesting work of forensic IT at Independent Australia:
    Even the Rupertarians must be beginning to realise that the stench cannot be concealed forever.

  22. ernmalleyscat

    Top work Andybob. From The Muckado?

  23. rhwombat

    What a great ornament to the Estate of the late Cecil Rhodes Mr Rabbott is…though I suspect that he is exactly the sort of fine upstanding half-sentient pugilistic mustelid that Rhodes had in mind as a misleader of empire.

  24. Andybob

    I am the very model of a Leader Oppositional
    I’ve information vegetable, animal and mineral
    Atlantic, Southern, Indian, the Arctic and Pacific
    But about that strange chap Ashby I know nothing that’s specific

  25. ianjohnno1

    Not a fig, eh?
    Well, I don’t give a flying fig for the cacaphone’s evasions.

  26. drmick

    Ironic that he would be lucky to be about 81 cents in the Oxford Scholar.
    How come the newspaper that paid for the accommodation costs and for the escorts,(well they already had the number after the dial-a-pro/”I slept with thompson” affair), doesn’t get a trot somewhere?

  27. zut alors

    En forme, Mr Dog. He’s no advertisement for Oxford.

    I eagerly await the poll results comparing the popularity of Mr Rabbott with Ross River Fever.

  28. Holden Back

    Oooh, shiny!
