A most appropriately named product.

Because Heaven knows, we’ve all had one to clean off the walls at some time or another.

Here’s a Sunday pun for you.

(Warning – if you get the joke, you’ll be showing your age!)

I was walking down the street the other day and I noticed that the premises of the local funeral director were displaying a CLOSING DOWN sign. Now this particular company is very well known in Perth and highly respected, and while I was in no hurry to be a customer of theirs I had to step inside to learn the story.
The place was empty except for the manager, the grandson of the company’s founder. He was quite happy to answer my questions. ‘It’s a funny thing,’ he said, not without a little sadness. ‘It might seem odd but being a long-established firm has actually been working against us for the last few years. Our public image is dusty and old-fashioned. Not so many people are being laid to rest in the traditional manner, either. That hasn’t helped.’
He was glad to have some company, I think. He was just getting ready to close the doors for the last time and hand the keys to the estate agent; the emotion seemed to be overwhelming him as we stood in the room that had once displayed coffins for every size and shape. And then, out of nowhere, he begun to hum a tune. I was taken completely by surprise when he sang:

Oh yes – we have no cadavers!

We have no cadavers today!

Because there’s not always time to light the Bat-signal.

A Canberra customer has taken matters into his own hands during an attempted supermarket robbery last night, smashing the offender over the head with a full bottle of red wine.

The Fourth of July – stars, stripes, and stealing.

The beach-goer confronted the women and chaos ensued.

Western Australia: Experience Extraordinary.

One and three-quarter minutes of foreplay disguised as an ad for Western Australia.

Or maybe it’s the other way round. Hey, next year just send them off-camera to have sex, okay?

Screened before one of the movies at Rev. Scenes include the Stirling Ranges and (I think) Cheyne Beach, which was formerly home to a whaling settlement. And Margaret River is the place with the vineyards and clinking glasses.

Jokes aside, it’s a beautiful and wonderful region.

Celebrating the Fourth.

On the first anniversary of the September 11 attacks, 5000 people dressed in red white and blue to create the Stars and Stripes on a beach in Queensland.

9-11 memorial on Qld beach

Australians and Americans have been reminded since that day of how much we share. A belief in freedom. Respect for the individual. The state as a servant to the citizen and not the other way round. Those are tough ideals to uphold and preserve. We’re not always successful. Beside the nations that haven’t inherited our traditions of democracy and liberty, however, we’re doing pretty well.
Happy Fourth of July, USA!

Be still, my throbbing sonic screwdriver!

Everyone’s favourite Time Lord returns in August.

(Can anyone explain to me how this, after some 50 odd years of Doctors, is tagged as Season 8?)

Uh, WHATbook?

No, seriously. Whatbook?

So much for the email spam. Blog spam wasn’t much better.

Do you have any video of that? I’d want to find out more details.

Via the UK Mirror:
Retired US Marine claims he spent 17 years on MARS protecting five human colonies from Martians.

Are you ready for the truth?

UPDATE:
“Okay, okay…. I admit it: I got drunk on an exercise in central Australia and wandered away from camp. I tell ya though, emus look a lot like aliens after eight cans of Fosters!”

They look like aliens even without the beer to me.
