    Mathieson’s not elected, not even married to Gillard, if the cameras and those “journo’s” (as if they hadn’t heard that one, or a derivative, before and probably laughed, when someone less “interesting” had told it?) hadn’t been there who’d have been any the wiser?
    I reckon he got a bum rap.

    Now I know what those noises ‘down there’ are: it’s my prostate yearning to speak freely.

    Too true doggy, but you have a choice to be offended or not. We all do. If you can get the message about mens health in any way shape or form then you have had a win.
    90% of health funding and research money is focused on womens health; yet there are just as many men die from the effects of prostate cancer, as women from breast cancer, each year. Fact.
    Poor old Barry prostate does not get a football day or a cricket day or any day devoted to him. Very little research, no support and when Tim tries to raise the issue……….the hypocrisy & the politics. There are gynaecologists who can wall paper a lounge room through a key hole, & plastic surgeons who can make mountains out of whats left after the boobectomy, but blokes are left to palliate their dads and not mention the war………….anywhere, and definitely amongst other men.

    Doomed FD. You are truly doomed.
    Yesterday, your thoughtful observations on climate change and the end of civilisation as we know it….
    Were upstaged by the fickle finger of fate.

    Today, as you desperately scramble to catch up, that bloody powerfox has gazumped your hilarious observations yet again.

    Tomorrow, that strange fellow with a bucket on his head, will probably try to shaft you as well.

    It shouldn’t happen to a dog.

    ‘I’m so gland I could be here!’ Nice one.

    Poor old Tim has been parked in the naughty corner because Australia is losing its sense of humour.

    FIRST DOG: I am prostate with happiness to see you’re back at your !Pad. Happy New Year!

    There was a golden time in Oz history-prior to the internet-when all the PC and po-faced old ladies only had each others’ shoulders to whinge on. Now they have Alan Jones and the WWW to air their petty little gripes. Oz, you’re standing in it.

    ZUT: Your comment clashed with mine, so I didn’t see it when I was writing.

    I hope you agree with my idea of how Oz humour seems to have disappeared.

    Agreed – it was pretty harmless. The point was was that Asian females tend to be on the small side, which doesn’t seem particularly offensive.

    Penetrating insight Mr Dog.
