A contradicktion in terms.

Matt Hayden over at Die, Fluffy Wuffy, Die! alerted me to the work of alleged feminist comedian Hannah Gadsby. Correction: feminist and alleged comedian.
The Grating Gadsby shows up early in this clip. Unfortunately, the humour level, such as it is, declines steeply from there on.

Just one of life’s little dramas.

“Hillary… you know I’ve always had a soft spot for you. That is, a hard spot for you… heh heh heh.’
‘Get your damned hands off me, you fucking sleaze! Hey! Secret Service man! Do something!’
‘I did it already, ma’am. I voted for Trump.’

Change my mind.

More bdian wisdom to be found here. (With the occasional bonus of unclad ladies, so no workplace trawling!)

Another Walker-Webb collaboration.

Scott Walker+Jimmy Webb = musical magic.

The Robin Hood of the internet?

Maybe.

A man has pleaded guilty to stealing a combined $122 million from Google and Facebook between 2013 and 2015.

Evaldas Rimasauskas of Lithuania managed to steal $99m from Facebook and $23m from Google by way of a simple plan: he sent invoices to the tech giants for items they hadn’t ordered. Astonishingly, both companies paid up.

Too busy censoring the cyberverse to read the mail, eh, Zucky?

He looks pretty sedate for an evil genius.

Jews! Sign up for the Auschwitz Holiday Tour today!

Different context, same message.

‘Share the threat’ – I’m not sure exactly what was meant by that. I doubt if the sign’s author recognised the irony of their words:

On 8 March 1979, more than 100,000 women gathered on the streets of the Iranian capital to protest against the new Islamic government’s compulsory hijab ruling, which meant that women would henceforth be required to wear a headscarf when away from home. The protest was held on International Women’s Day, and the images show women from all walks of life — nurses, students, mothers — marching, smiling, arms raised in protest.

Within months of the founding of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the 1967 Family Protection Law was repealed; female government workers were forced to observe Islamic dress code; women were barred from becoming judges; beaches and sports were sex-segregated; the legal age of marriage for girls was reduced to 9 (later raised to 13); and married women were barred from attending regular schools.

Is that the future the women of Waikato University want for themselves and their daughters?

A ‘wish I’d said that’ moment.

Former PM and lifelong pestilence Malcolm Turnbull is writing his memoirs. Soon the whole world will be hanging breathless on his stories about beating Edmund Hillary up Everest, discovering penicillin, and saving a 747 by taking the controls from the unconscious pilot.

The response from Thomas Violence to Malcolm’s absurd tweet is pure gold.

NB: For the uninformed it was Tony Abbott – the Prime Minister that Turnbull knifed – who originally proposed a plebiscite on the gay marriage question. Turnbull inherited the proposal very grudgingly – until he saw the jubilation following the Yes vote, and then of course it was his idea all along.

Malcolm likes reflected glory. He gets near it at every opportunity.

More unhappy news for the Fuhrer.

This deserves a much wider audience.

Change my mind.
