    Whenever tough ethical conundrums arise I find it of assistance to remember the helpful acronym WWJD: What Would Jasper Do ?

    In this case some duct tape across the cakehole will ensure eventual success (for a given value of success).

    For the sake of Australian cartoonists it has to happen.

    And let’s stay with the myth that no other PM in the past 40 years has ever been a pr*ck. Only the nicest possible people get to be political leaders, right?

    You cut out the ring kissing?
    ….. “mate”? Isn’t that what animals do their own kind too?

  4. klewso

    … hang on! One of those Naz-gulls looks suspiciously shortened? Howes that?

  5. Venise Alstergren

    FIRSTY: NO! You didn’t? You couldn’t have named the house Dunromin???? Jesüs!

    ANDYBOB: You could always shove a pin into the balloon.

    Such a cunning job you’ve done in casting Theres, FD.

    I am incensed the Canberra press gallery lets Abbott get away with murder with nary an investigative question to reveal his true face.
    And I am saddened that the Powerfox has continually surrounded herself with such deadbeats to ‘advise’ her.

    But if the present state of things means Jasper the Unfriendly Ghost (great name, whoever came up with it – klewso?) can re-appear in this august Walkley-awarded cartoon corner with purpose, attitude and his usual charm to once again inflate the Balloon’s chances at Chez Lodge, it might just all be worth it.

  8. klewso

    It wasn’t me.

  9. Coaltopia

    Drama Queen-slander.

    They should have another leadership challenge, and another and another until Kev stops beating himself.
    He already has glasses, and with his help from his “friends” in the press gallery, looks like he will keep beating himself till he goes blind.

  11. Venise Alstergren

    It is all a nightmare. I feel as if I’m watching a shipwreck, but I’m stuck to a rock of glue; powerless to do anything to stop it.

  12. drovers cat

    I checked back – it was … drum roll … Shaniq’ua Shardonn’ay

  13. paddy

    You had me profoundly worried for a few moments there FD.
    But you came good with that zinger in the final frame.

    I also agree with mattsui. Magnificent work with Therese.

  14. Venise Alstergren

    PADDY: Why is leporillus conditor such a good name for Thérése R; because it’s small, cute and furry, or because it is almost extinct?

  15. ernmalleyscat

    Do those silly Rudd-boosters seriously think that if we’d had a further 30 odd months of Kev’s matey sauce bottle nerdiness and those weekly Sunday doorstops outside church and revelations of workplace bastardry and not actually getting around to the, y’know, policy thing, that the papers, the pundits, the party and the people wouldn’t be begging for someone to topple him by now.

    And he leaked against his party during an election.

  16. Holden Back

    So are the requisite pricks on the inside or the outside?

  17. paddy

    Venise, to paraphrase one of my all time heroes, Francis Urquhart.
    “You may well ask that. But I couldn’t possibly comment.”

  18. ernmalleyscat

    ooh I’ve said something potentially naughty.

  19. Venise Alstergren

    PADDY: Peals of laughter. Hehehehe hahahaha hehehehe……

  20. Venise Alstergren

    PADDY: Now I’ve got hiccups!

  21. paddy

    Bloody hell EMC. Have you been slandering stick nest rats again?

    Venise, a quick slug of alcohol is a sure fire cure for hiccups.

  22. Sandshoe

    ERN: Leaked against his party certainly if you say so you four footed pussy in and out of cupboards as you go looking like there’s no harm in you other than cat here and cat deleted get out of there, but it didn’t put out the fire. Now someone has to send in the clowns.

  23. zut alors

    ‘Shoe!!! At last the prodigal returns.

  24. paddy

    Hi Shoe! You’ve been missed.

  25. Andybob

    Indeed EMC, and it won’t wash out.

  26. Sandshoe

    @ Zut alors and @ paddy: thank you kindly and I have grieved for inclusion missing y’all.
    Andybob: No. That’s why the clowns. It’s a job for exorcists.

  27. paddy

    My goodness! That’s quite a hairball you’ve coughed up there EMC.
    No wonder it gave the modbot indigestion.
    Spot on analysis!

  28. ernmalleyscat

    The shoe is back! That was a long walk. Howdy.

  29. First Dog On The Moon

    hey shoe

  30. Sandshoe

    Awww, thanks ever so much guys.

  31. Sandshoe

    EMC: I do have barely any shoe leather.

  32. Sandshoe

    Hey to you, Firsty. I hope everything is good.

  33. Venise Alstergren

    ‘SHOE: ‘allo, ‘allo, ‘allo. Long time no see. Is this a quick visit; or a semi-permanent presence? Hopefully the latter.

  34. Sandshoe

    VENISE: ‘allo, ‘allo, ‘allo to you back.

    I took everybody’s advice, V and put my mind to what cheap trip could I buy to see Venice. ‘allo, ‘allo, ‘allo.

    So well worn that in-joke of ours, but hey, look at the subscription in the light of sober reality and we need a little humour looking at the moolah trickled out of our control like, dare I say, a canal. Great BIG happy SMILEY FACE.

    I saved up. I’m back, V. Lovely to be greeted so warmly.

    Much love.
