    Behold….The toon that just drew itself.
    You are one amazingly fortunate canine FD.
    Oh what glorious adventures await us for the NEXT 6 YEARS!
    The cartoonist’s golden mining boom of madness begins.

  2. zut alors

    Mr Onthemoon, please avoid raisin Toady’s man date, it’s lunch time.

    There was also a mandate for the NBN (twice) but apparently that doesn’t count.

  3. Eales Chris

    Spot on First Dog!

  4. Andybob

    In fairness Paddy our duly elected representatives are merely jokes in search of a punchline. It still takes a bon mot from the premier canine to turn what would otherwise be a cry of despairing horror into a wry chuckle.

  5. Stephen

    Come back, Slippo and Thommo, all is forgiven.

  6. paddy

    Alas, you’re correct AndyBob.
    It’s going to be gallows humour for the next 6 yrs.

  7. Plonkoclock

    Who wears thongs at night?? What’s wrong with ordinary pyjamas?

  8. arnold ziffel

    I’m feeling much better about the future.
    We may be hastening the end of the world but at least it’s entertaining.

  9. ernmalleyscat

    Michaelia Cash, Mary Jo Fisher, Erica Betz, Cory Bernardi, Ron Boswell, Bill Heffernan.

  10. Blair Martin

    I don’t know what’s funnier – the name “Bert Frack” or the newly renamed ‘Strayaday “National Bumraisn Tossing Day”

  11. klewso

    Tosser’s chooks are home.
    Cousin Jethro’s moved out, so they’ve rented his room out.

  12. @Keening_Product

    Is that Scott Ludlam’s hair?

  13. klewso

    Is it too late to throw a “Labored Liberal Democrats” party for next time?

    [What’s wrong with coming Right out with the Coprophile Party – Poo Pride? The stigma with being a member – or admitting you voted for it?
    And call me a conspiralist but try to deny there’s no link between mandates and being a Christopher Robin (playing with Poo)?]

  14. Malcolm Street

    “Marsupial Faeces Enthusiasts Party” – priceless!

  15. drmick

    Firsty they say a camel is a horse designed by a committee. I cant wait to see what that senate will make.
    Zut all the talk about a mandate and the suppository means they can shove through anything they want, when they want where they want.
    Klewso I would have thought the chooks would not have moved in on principle

  16. Stevo the Working Twistie

    Some days I feel like a Guano Magnet.

  17. Andybob

    Re: ‘Gary’ and Scott Ludlum’s hair
    Why talk about the past when we can look to the future ?

  18. Shaniq'ua Shardonn'ay

    Is Tony Waiting for his Man Date to come out from under his Bucket?

  19. rhwombat

    I, for one, welcome Boris No-Visible-Mandible and his faeculent overlords. Being a marsupial with conspicuously cubic droppings (and hence, square recti) I place myself (or rather, my poo) at the disposal of the Party – though I would rather they throw it at Toady Rabbott than burn it.

  20. Queen of Nambour

    Imagine the fun our darling Paul would have had with this lot. He would have done them all slowly …very slowly …and expertly …oh dear …pass me the smelling salts …the lavender scented ones … I think I stepped in something and it smells suspiciously like roopoo.

  21. Raaraa

    No one seems to have remembered The Hokey Pokey Party’s Mr X.

  22. Raaraa

    Also I should probably try to be a career politician through the forming of the following parties:

    Green Liberals
    Nationalist Democrats
    Democratic Leaks
    Nationalist Greens
    and the Democratic Labor. Oh wait forget about the last one.

  23. drmick

    The fires of hell have been unleashed in Springwoods Hawkesbury Road after a back burn went wrong. The lunatics are definitely running the asylum now. That part of the macquarie electorate voted the wrong way.

  24. Shaniq'ua Shardonn'ay

    Here’s an idea for you firsty – Career expo for former pollies.

  25. Shaniq'ua Shardonn'ay

    I’d love to see Sophie Mirrorball in a work for the dole scheme..

  26. Andrew L

    Wow! Could we possibly end up with a Senate in which Heffo, Bernardi and Ferrethingy-0whatsitsname are the sensible ones? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  27. Circus Taximus

    Such a shame that the Angry Rissole didn’t get a seat.

  28. Dan Gulberry

    Shaniq’ua Shardonn’ay

    Just as long as she doesn’t end up at a rest home for wealthy elderly gentlemen.

  29. Frank Birchall

    My favourites in rank order are Beverly Flognuts, Dave Niblet, Captain Deathpants and Boris Mandible. They’ll be naturals in the Senate.

  30. Andybob

    “CLIVE PALMER: Remember those great journalists of the last century, Clarke Kent, Jimmy Olsson and Mr White, right, wasn’t that a great industry to work in? If we could go back to there.

    MATT WORDSWORTH: Although that was fictional.

    CLIVE PALMER: It was fictional but it represented the standards of the era.”

    Paddy, I take it all back. Cartoonists and political satirists have died and gone to heaven.

  31. PDGFD1

    ‘Reap the whirlwind much?’ Well said Firsty..

    Andrew L.. I’m with you… HAR HAR HAR… oh wait… these nutters get to make decisions that actually affect us… back to boo hoo.

    EMC.. if you’re making a ‘list’..probably no need to ‘check it twice’… you have it right the first time.

  32. Rais

    Andybob – “Cartoonists and political satirists have died and gone to heaven.” No, cartoonists and political satirists have nothing left to do but report the facts.

  33. Malcolm Street

    Shaniq’ua Shardonn’ay – Sophie would be admirably suited to providing estate planning advice to elderly gentlemen.

  34. AR

    Senator elect Wayne Dropkick of The Roo Poo Party, you read it here first. Let the Games begin.

  35. hot albo

    Beware the urban lawyers, the jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
