Larrikinism — with its mixture of irreverence, playfulness, some satirical elements of love and of loss, nostalgia for the sounds and trousers styles of the past such as flares, and the sobering subjects of epidemic disease and delusions — is an Australian English term meaning "a mischievous young person, an uncultivated, rowdy but good hearted person", and/or "a person who acts with apparent disregard for social or political conventions"...

Scott Morrison committed the Australian nation to god during times of great need and suffering... Carrying his budget surplus like a cross, Scomo thanked god for saving his arse in the face of Sports Rorts, Angus' watery affair and other fiddles that involved Clover.

 

Full of his own Coalonascopic climate change disbelief and on his way to Mount Corona, where he would be nailed by the Toilet Paper Army, he knew he would resuscitate by Easter, which was just around the corner.

We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be."

I’ve been on to my solicitor to draft a certificate setting out why I should be saved when the Great Triage comes.

I can’t think of a single reason off the top of my head but he’ll come up with something. He’s good. He’s expensive. I want the document on me when I’m wheeled into ICU.

OK, I’ve got some good news and I’ve got some bad news. The good news is mainly for authoritarians who missed all the fun during the War on Terror. The news is … welcome to the War on Death!

the new world order...

world order    We are sold a pup. Yes the coronavirus is here. But the treatment is far worse than this disease which is not worse than the ordinary flu by any shot.
