Good deed + punishment = meme.

In September this year a firefighter in Ohio resigned for saying that if he had to choose between saving a dog and a black man, he’d give the dog first priority. No reasonable human being has a problem with that.

Problem is, some human beings just aren’t reasonable.

In the midst of those hellish Californian wildfires a man stopped to rescue a rabbit. The response of some has been interesting to say the least.

If this collection of tweets is a fake, please advise me and provide a link. I’ve tried to find confirmation one way or the other but no luck.

Save a bunny, and you’re a racist. Assuming you’re not a person of colour yourself, which impossible to determine from the original video.

You know what terrifies some people? The horror so appalling that just thinking that it might happen twists their silly little brains like bubble gum?

In The Great South Land we used to call them wowsers.

If I didn’t have a sense of humour, I might well have become one myself.

Here’s a crap start to the festive season for you.

Me:
Gina,
Holy crap, I’m just looking at a news report on the fires in LA. ‘IN’ being the operative word. I hope you’re safe!
 
Gina:
Yes
Also broke arm today
 
Please remember Gina in your thoughts and prayers. She does a lot of good work for the people in uniform.

Seriously, is that total ingratitude or what?

May criticises Trump for retweets of ‘hateful’ far-right group

Donald Trump was “wrong” to retweet videos produced by the “hateful” Britain First organisation, British prime minister Theresa May has said… Mr Trump sparked outrage in the UK by retweeting three videos from the far-right group, purportedly showing violent acts by Muslims.

December 5, 2017:

British security services have foiled an Islamist plot to blow up Prime Minister Theresa May…

What a fine way to say Thanks for the thumbs up, Teresa.

All across The Great South Land, Milo’s the man!

Milo Yiannopoulos has made it to Australia, much to the dislike of some and to the like of many more.

Today he travelled to Canberra and  gave that grey old town more sparkle than it’s had since the Bicentenary fireworks.

Perhaps I rate consistency too highly.

Email from Linkedin, 4:04 am: This is the wrong time to look for a job.
Email from Linkedin, 9:52 am: HR Administrator at MARS Recruitment and 9 other jobs for you.
FFS! Is it the wrong time to look for a job or not?

Are you comfy there, Nana?

Not really, dear. There’s something poking me in the back…

“That face… where have I seen it?”

All over the damn place!

Belated birthday wishes to one of the best character actors of the last twenty years: William Fichtner, born November 27 1956.

Drive Angry stars Nicolas Cage as a man who breaks out of Hell to save his daughter. He stole a car to make his getaway, but William Fichtner steals the movie.

Then there was a brief scene in The Dark Knight.

A role as a blind astronomer in Contact.

So yeah – you’ve seen William Fichtner around.

Even at the races.

And so it begins.

Not one of mine.

Animal Farm Goes To Canberra.

The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.

I know exactly what you mean, Mister Orwell.

Malcolm Turnbull has a Christmas wish.

Politics here in The Great South Land has been interesting lately. I’ll make some time to write about it over the Christmas break.

Who knows, by then I might be writing this useless clown’s eulogy. That’s MY Christmas wish.
