    The witch cast this spell, too? Is it the Cartoon tax?

    [I like heart. Sliced, egg, corn-flake crumbs or a little corn flower and fried – and I don’t care what colour it is.]

    Ooh I can’t remember a situation that has brought Firstdog to the point where he has roused on us as a nation. Frame 3 definitely bears a certain ‘condescending primary school teacher’ tone.

    Quelle Horreaux! The cooks used curry paste out of a jar, oh, the humanity!

    (ps, that’s reality for most of us)

    Who is telling lies? Who do I believe?? Do I believe her because it feeds my sense of self-justification, ie she is right because I want her to be? Or is he right, and I refute his argument because if I don’t, I’ve been wrong?? P00psticks, indeed.

    Reminds me of the 1930s – well, I wasn’t there personally – but I sense the peoples of the world again slowly rising to say ‘enough’ – and promptly enacting population control upon themselves.
    We have always carried the seeds of our own destruction. Just add Abbott, Newman, Romney …

    About the only thing that can win people’s dark hearts these days is a kitten video.

    Facts are like buried treasure; available for a bit of work. Either the citizens of Oz aren’t prepared to work, or afraid the facts will argue with their own preconceived ideas, or, they prefer to wait for the next footy game.

    MIKE S: It’s worse than ‘Quelle Horreaux.’Like, ‘quelle gateaux’ made with curry paste out of a jar! (Smile)

    That’s a very sympathetic treatment of me in frame five Dog, Thanks.

    Mike, if I follow that link it will ruin the claim to fame that I have never ever watched a cat/kitten video.
