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.
Does the condition occur when men lose their facilities?
Or was that an ageist comment?
“Ben Dover for men’s health”?
The image of Barry appears digit enhanced.
There was a famous Indian gentleman with the name of Sir Ramatoul Uperbum. I wonder if he suffered from this organ deficit?
I do think Tony’s bucket is a good idea, Mr Dog. But just to fit in with the attempted image change, do you think that you could draw a message on the bucket saying, “I’m not the real Tony.”
I think it will help us to recognise him.
Barrys primary job is deciding whether Tim is coming or going. Someone decided that urine would be one colour, and semen another colour, just in case the,”insert race here……” weren’t sure.
When men get older Barry does not work as well and stiffens up, preventing effective performance of either of his primary jobs. Surgery can help get things moving again but in about 80% of cases, there is nerve damage that keeps depend & v!agra in the market.
At least Barry will never become a speed hump to keep up with the Joneses and the Assby`s.
Of course, this is a family show, and we can’t mention #&*%#^&%!
Just in case anyone missed it….What does semen have in common with lawyers? In both cases it takes fifty million to produce one human being.
“The odds are 50,000,000,000 : 1, one becoming a human being”?
[George Brandis, Honest John ….. but eventually]
….. sorry “50,000,000”
There’s still a lot of arson about. Tim’s remark was worthy of Sir Les himself. But the issue does need more leadership from eminent sporting figures. Obviously John Hopoate in NSW but in Victoria Jimmy Buckley was something of a quiet achiever in that regard. When questioned by the ump he denied all knowledge, held up the offending digit and opined that the victim needed about a half pint of oil. The ump couldn’t carry on for laughing for five minutes.
A campaign appointing them both roving ambassadors and noting that you could go to your doc, or sooner or later they would come to you, would probably work a treat.
Good suggestion, Andybob; but I think Hopoate’s a Mormon missionary now, isn’t he?
Well, I’ve made similar remarks to Tim’s about my dentist (an asian woman with small hands), involving the opposite end of my digestive tract.
I did not know that cyberfysh, but it somehow seems apt in view of Psalm 67:7 – “God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him”.
