  1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

    VB that brings back memories, lost a bet and had to shotgun 6 of them ( don’t judge me I was 19 )

      Too harsh for my gullet Janet – i was always more of a Coopers man, green or red depending on the mood. It doesn’t travel well unfortunately. Always liked rolling the bottle on a flat surface so it’s conditioned just right but then again perhaps that’s the Guinness drinker in me who likes a little ceremony or ritual.

      They also used to produce a special brew once a year that was delicious.

      On the subject to hand – that’s off the charts, crazy stuff.

          “Janet, when she was nineteen
          Thought life just a tad too serene
          To show she was ocker
          In a VB shot shocker
          Drained six stubby bottles, emptied clean!”

          “Ocker” – An uncouth, uncultivated, or aggressively boorish Australian male, stereotypically Australian in speech and manner

            if only that was the worst of it, shakes head at misspent youth,
            then looks out window at where Craic goes to die and unshakes head.

          2. Fergalito

            Like most of us Janet – youth is the pool within which we douse our senses, when the body is willing and we are yet get “sense.”

            “You might have brains” as my lovely Granny used to say “but have you the brains to use them.” If only she knew for how long and little the use they got.

      You keep repeating this as if it excuses certain authorities behaviour but it is simply a moronic cop-out that speaks to your naivety. This is a statement and not the beginning of a useless discussion where the rules are Nigel is always right and everyone else is always wrong.

      Enjoy your day.

      1. Nigel

        It’s neither a cop-out or an excuse – it’s a refutation of the narrative of cyncism and powerlesness that mediocre incompetent leaders rely on to remain in power without being punished for obviously awful policies. I don’t know what you’re on about me being right and everyone else wrong, are we not in general agreement that the Austrfalian government seems to be pretty awful?

    1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

      well my policy has always been not to lick anything filthy and thoroughly regularly wash my hands, all these gels and dirty masks drive me nuts, they prevent real cleanliness practices.

      1. Nigel

        Don’t be a wimp, face masks are the new towels, c/f D. Adams:

        “A face-mask, [The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy] says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can’t see it, it can’t see you); you can wave your face mask in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.”

      Great, just another thing to add to the list of idiotic restrictions our government half wits introduced. Closing all toilets in cafes, take away bars etc served no positive purpose and created the mass public urination phenomenon witnessed earlier this year.

    Reminds me of the old one about Castlemaine XXXX getting its name because Australians can’t spell beer.

    Good and they should have that here. Buying alcohol should require a vaccine cert as you’re highly likely to be socialising with drink. Make it unliveable for those who are holding out.

            puts them both out of their misery ?
            That’s what I always felt like watching Punch and Judy as a kid…just make it stop.

      Careful what you wish for Tom, obese people are more at risk of covid too – soon you wont be able to buy takeaway every night of the week – the state might even send you to fat camp!

      1. Micko

        When I have to go to fat camp, I’m hoping that I’m SO lazy and fat that they just give up on me and pay for the liposuction

        Just like Mr Burns

        “Wooohoo!”

    Recently, I’ve read a very apt quote about Australia: “Remember, the country was not built only by former convicts, but also by their jailers.”
