  1. I was just about to link to this when my computer went on a go slow – bloody shockwave!
    Excellent cartoon, and very apposite.

  2. Compare Richard’s favorite question with the Hamster’s:

    “How do you know that?”


    “Were you there?”

    They’re both questions that a child would eagerly latch on to, but the one will open the world to exploration whilst the other slams the door on your fingers.

    1. Just a reminder that whenever a politician is classified ‘liberal’, in Australia they are conservative politicians, as distinct from Labor politicians; ie, Liberal = Republican equivalent, Labor= Democrat equivalent.

      Cardinal George Pell, the highest ranked Catholic in the country, despite his rhetorical bravado is wearing his brown trousers.

  5. À propos should be written in 2 words.
    I find amusing that there are often french expressions in this blogsite…
    Ce n’est pas quelque chose à laquelle je m’attendais…
