Aussie PM

Kevin Rudd the Aussie Prime Minister called Julia Gillard into his
office one day and said,
'Julia,I have a great idea! We are going to go all out to win the
country voters.'
'Good idea Leader,how will we go about it?' said Julia.
'Well,' said Rudd,'we'll get ourselves one of those Driza Bone coats,
some RM Williams boots, a stick and an Akubra hat.

Oh, and a blue cattle dog. Then we'll really look the part.

We'll go to a typical old outback country pub, we'll show we really enjoy the bush.'

'Right.' Said Julia.
Days later, all kitted out and with the requisite blue heeler, they set off from Canberra in a westerly direction.
Eventually they arrived at just the place they were looking for and found
a typical outback pub.

They walked in with the dog and up to the bar.

'G'day mate,' said Rudd to the bartender, 'two middies of your

'Good afternoon Leader,' said the bartender, 'two middies of our best
coming up.'

Gillard and Rudd stood leaning on the bar drinking their beer and
chatting,�nodding now and again

to whoever came into the bar for a drink.�The�dog lay�quietly at their

All of a sudden, the door from the adjacent bar opened and in came
a grizzled old stockman, complete with stockwhip.

He walked up to the cattle dog, lifted its tail with the whip and looked
underneath, shrugged his�shoulders and walked back to the other bar.

A few moments later, in came another old stockman with his whip.He
walked up to the dog and lifted its tail,looked underneath, scratched
his�head and�went back to the other bar.

Over the course of the next hour or so another four or five stockmen came
in and lifted the dogs tail and went away looking puzzled.�

Eventually, Rudd and Gillard could stand it no longer and called the
barman over.

'Tell me,' said Rudd, 'why did all those old stockmen come in and look
under the dog's tail like that?�Is it an old outback custom?'

'Strewth no!' said the barman.�

'Someone told�'em there was a cattle dog in the bar with two arseholes!'

Whale Watching

The Extraordinary Ordinary Photo Challenge -TEXTURE

This is my favorite red velvet rug I snuggle under at night and watch the idiot box.

Johnno at Doyles, Sydney Quay

Laff of the day

A young attractive black guy walked into the local welfare office to pick up his check He marched straight up to the counter and said, ' Hi. You know, I just HATE drawing welfare. I'd really rather have a job.'

The social worker behind the counter said, ' Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a Chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful daughter.

You'll have to drive around in his 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL, and he will supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll also be expected to escort the daughter on her overseas holiday trips.

This is rather awkward to say but you will also have as part of your job assignment to satisfy her sexual urges as the daughter is in her mid-20's and has a rather strong sex drive.

A two-bedroom loft type apartment with plasma TV, stereo, bar, etc. located above the garage, will be designated for your sole use and the salary is $200,000 a year.'

The guy, just plain wide-eyed, said, ' You're bullshittin' me!

The social worker said, ' Yeah, well . You started it.'

Got a spare shoebox Sue?

In 2007 over 300,000 children received a shoe box gift because of the passionate involvement of people like you. This year we hope to reach out to even more children who are caught in the midst of war, famine, natural disaster and extreme poverty… and show them that they have not been forgotten!
Operation Christmas Child is a unique project of Samaritan’s Purse that brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled shoe boxes.

It provides an opportunity for people of all ages to be involved in a simple but hands-on project that has the power to transform children’s lives.

In 2007, our teams in Australia and New Zealand delivered over 300,000 gift-filled shoe boxes to South East Asia and the South Pacific. Globally, Samaritan’s Purse distributed an estimated 7.6 million shoe boxes to children Samaritan’s in 105 countries.

As each shoe box gift is delivered, it is treasured by the child that receives it, and is a lasting reminder that he or she is precious to God.

long ago.

Lucky me - again

Good day,

My name is Alvin Holman an American citizen working with the United Nations. I'm a married man with 2 kids. I am contacting you for the purpose of a business transaction.

Through the years I have served with the United Nations and with my position, I was able to secure a sum of money amounting to 30million US dollars from contracts and assignments in conflicting countries. The money was earned on contract basis to non staff, so therefore I need a neutral person to be able to cash the money. As a result of this I am contacting you and not even a family member to avoid complications arising from talks or the likes. I got your e-mail address from the internet while searching for a reliable and competent person for the transaction.

Please this e-mail should not be treated as one of those from Africa. Looking forward to receiving your reply and doing business with you.

Yours truly,
Alvin Holman.

Paris Hilton's dogs eaten, makes nice change from her cat

Paris Hilton is reportedly in mourning after two of her dogs were eaten by coyotes.

The attack, which happened at Hilton's Hollywood hills mansion on Wednesday night, is not an uncommon occurrence in the area with coyotes often roaming into backyards, website X17 Online reports.

The socialite is said to be "devastated" after the two dogs were discovered the morning after the attack.

It is not known whether one of the killed is her camera-friendly hound Tinkerbell, often snapped with Hilton on outings and at publicity appearances.

"Some people think she's eccentric, having so many pets, but she just really, really loves animals and it was devastating for her," a source was quoted as saying.

Halle Berry and Demi Moore have also had pets snatched from their property.

Earlier this year, Hilton was investigated after admitting on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show that she owned 17 dogs.

Under US law, a non-breeder is only allowed to have three dogs per address.

According to TMZ, a Department of Animal Spokesman said the Simple Life star and her animals weren't home when they visited.

Weekday "What is it".

It was a friends' head, just above his right ear.

The milky bar kid..or is it PM Rudd

Rudd and Mr Sheen twins

Talk about a hottie, fan me, quick!

And now I have a new friend

Hello man my new friend!

I understand, that you do not know me and I do not know you, but probably in the future all can change. All good always occurs in the future and I ask a few patience from you to read my letter up to the end. In the beginning I want to be presented you and to tell a little about my life. My name is Natalya and to me it will be very pleasant, if you will name me so. Was born 34 years ago and all this time I live in Russia, in city of Kazan. Now I work as the seller in shop and I very much like my work as I every day communicate with many different people. My life goes in regular intervals and every day is similar on previous. I like my friends and love my family. Certainly the most important i want to found love and my the husband to be the happiest woman in the world. For all my life I could not meet the man to which I could trust completely and with which I would like to connect my life, but very much I want.
Several days ago I laid at home on a sofa and thought. Why I am lonely? Why I cannot find my special the man? Probably I have made nothing to be happy? Certainly I can be together with the man which I not love, to give birth to the child and simply to be mum, but to not be happy in the family, but I do not want it. I want to love the man and simply be happy to be with him. Also I have thought. Why to not try to get acquainted with the man from other country if I could not find my special man here in Russia? Now we live in 21 century and I know, that many people use the Internet and "Marriage agencies" to get acquainted with suitable the man in any point globe. I do not want to be lonely during my life or simply to sit and wait, when my love will come to me. I want to do itself my life happy and have found such marriage agency here in my city. I knew, that their help will be not free-of-charge, but they have asked the big sum of money from me.
Nevertheless I have thought and have decided to not be greedy this money, for the sake of my happiness and my love. Money - never can give to me of it. Probably my destiny to be with the man from other country? I do not know, but I want to try to know.
They gave to me yours E-mail and have told, that you also are interested to find the woman for a life. I think, that now you can understand, how my letter has come to you, could learn a little about my life and about me, but I do not know your desires and I ask to think. We can try to build serious relations or probably simply to be friends. If you do not have desire simply speak to me and I can understand. Nevertheless if I am interesting to you it would be very pleasant for me to learn also a little more about you and to receive your photos. I understand in computers not much, but I hope, that you also can receive my photos in this letter. Certainly appearance not the most important in the person both his private world and soul are of great value, but nevertheless it is more pleasant to receive the letter from the person and to see, how he looks. All this, that I wanted to tell to you and now I shall wait only your answer. Excuse, if I something have offended you in my letter or something has told not correctly, but understand, that I try it for the first time and I worry a little. Even if serious relations are not interesting to you or I am not pleasant, simply let to me know. Ok?

Please reply only my personal e-mail: nattaallya@gmail.com

Man or Mouse?

Australians were duped into making Kevin Rudd the nation's prime minster, according to the wife of former treasurer Peter Costello.

In an exclusive interview with 60 Minutes, Tanya Costello said she believed Labor would have been quashed during last year's election if her husband had been given a chance as prime minister.

"I think Australians had been duped and that they voted in someone because they wanted to get rid of someone else," Mrs Costello said.

"If they’d had a chance to see Peter, they may not have voted for the new prime minister."

Mr Costello also revealed there was at least "five or six times" when former prime minister John Howard looked set to surrender the leadership of the Liberals, but backed down.

"On each occasion there was a reason why he didn't do it," Mr Costello said.

"I told him it should be done [but] he didn't agree with me.

"He didn't accept it."

What a piece of chicken shite coward this man is. He will go to his death bed whinging he "could've been the Prime Minister".

Uh, no; actually you could not have done that job. That job requires, guts, courage, effort, and the balls to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

It takes a man with ticker to challenge the present Leader, and mate, you never, ever had it.

Shut up.
