  1. Andybob

    Clankings from kitchens and purrs from the moggy
    Luxury paper, this tea and the Doggies
    Watching the slow death of News’s right wing
    These are a few of my favourite things

    When the camps riot
    Due to insight
    That they’ll die in jail
    I simply remember I’m here and not there
    And then I don’t hear them wail.

    Little squirts of serotonin, endorphins and oxytocin.
    And little animal pictures that make you think that come in the email each day.

    Cheer up Firsty.
    Just be glad you are not Alan Joyce or the G&L mardi gras Floatmakers Do they make a flying fairy kangaroo float? How are they going to fly now? Do they make a Cardinal Pull float with a bon voyage message attached? Gloria has been doing his bit to earn a float; and no one knows whether fred nile is still alive let alone still in parliament and would anybody miss his float?
    Wouldn’t it be nice if a benefactor, (such as the union movement), gave $50 to every one of the 80,000 people who have lost their job since september, and asked them to have a sign out the front of where they used to live, when they had a job, thanking everyone who voted for tony or green? They should have a float.

    Damn you FD.
    Preemptive ‘preenactment’ = coffee spurting out nose.
    Then no “e” in whisky made me drop the mug!

    Top work Andybob.
    I’ve now got an earworm to go with the soggy keyboard.

    “It’s almost footy season”? Well, I don’t know, I tend to count NAB Cup as footy season.

    Not every noise from the cat is happy making – ‘yoop yoop yoop’ heralds An Incident.

    I trust Firsty won’t be required to correct Mr Kudelka’s spelling throughout the length & breadth of Tasmania.

    Just excellent. Thanks Firsty. Chins up for the weekend everyone.

    I am making a kanga chilli (clank hisss) you are all welcome to some.

    And that is adorable, Andybob. All Dog’s cartoons should be put to music from now on. I’ll do a roster.

    All whisky from Scotland is whisky. All whiskey from everywhere else is whiskey.
    All whiskers at my place belong to my cat Oliver. He’s lovely and talks a lot

    Just sit Right back
    And you’ll hear a tale
    A tale of a fateful trip,
    That started from some tropic port,
    Aboard some tiny ship.
    The mate was a mighty soldier man,
    With Scrottum brave and sure,
    Five passengers set sail that day,
    For an unsure three week tour,
    A leaky three week tour.

    The weather started getting rough,
    Did the Scrottum give a toss?
    You’ve really got to be joking man
    The Scrottum is no wuss.
    The Scrottum is no wuss.

    The ship sets ’em down upon the shore
    Of this hostile desert isle
    With Gus Campbell,
    His Scrottum too.
    The G4S
    And it’s strife,
    The Nui Guinea cops,
    No media spies to spoil the bash,
    Here on Morrison’s Isle.

    So this is the tale of our castaways,
    They’re here for a long long time.
    They’ll have to make the best of things,
    Or a box of pine.

    … Campbell and his Scrottum too
    Will do their very best,
    To create an unholy pergatry
    In this their tropic mess.

    No end. No hope, of getting to,
    Where you wanted to be
    Just like Scrott’s compassion,
    It’s as primitive as can be.

    So join us here each week my friends,
    You’re sure to get a smile,
    From seven hundred castaways
    Here on Morrison’s Isle.

    Elephant stamps to Andybob and Klewso.

  13. rhwombat

    FD, Ab & The Klew: appreciative cat noises!

  14. rhwombat

    zut: …as long as the elephant doesn’t stamp on Ab & Klew.

    “from everywhere else is whiskey” except that its ‘E’ originated in IRELAND, begorrah.

  16. ernmalleyscat

    I’m presently raising money to have cartoonists ride around the country and deliver whiskas to me.

  17. ianjohnno

    Don’t let them forget the catnip, EMC.

  18. Matt Hardin

    Making me happy is Coopers Sparking Ale on a Friday.

  19. Hugh (Charlie) McColl

    Isn’t it whiskey for blended stuff (like Johnny Walker) and whisky for single malts and the like?

  20. Luka

    One day I dare you to share my whiskey and catnip. Or will it be, bok bok, bokaaarrk!!!?

    ” Life is brutal and dark. Stop expecting anything other than death.”

    You’ve come a long ” Way “.

    ANDYBOB & KLEWSO: Dead heat for first. I salute you both; my cat, Shiva, says meowp. Purrrr. Washes face.

  22. drmick

    What Veise said.Team Andybob and Klewso will be the first to go when the serco-fascist btutes comes looking for those rebels that have made us happy or laugh.

  23. Claude

    I must be strange because I am in that camp that loves both dogs and cats and not one or the other. Having a cat, leaves some people (particularly males ) looking at you really weird, but I just lovem.

    Does Shiva dance? Have you seen the Dance of the Shiva?..mind blowing stuff. I know you have.

  24. klewso

    When she(?) sings, does Shiva the timbres?
