Janet Albrechtsen talks about candour

I just told them "toughen up, Princess".

Candour makes news these days because we are drowning in a blancmange of PC-mumbo jumbo. Molony made two simple observations. First, there are “beauty-disadvantaged women” in the world. Surely we need not quibble over that. Some women are beautiful. Some fall short in the beauty stakes.

Secondly, he pointed out that less attractive women who are looking for a partner may do better in a town with fewer women and more men. He’s right. Molony simply used blunt words to tell us what science has already proven.

It's unfortunate that the Mayor of Mt Isa has been reviled for stating the bleeding obvious.

Why bother with Mt Isa?

All a beauty challenged chick needs to do is front up at the pub after about 11pm, when all the boys have a schooner or 10 under their belts, and they are sure to pull. I have occasionally been guilty of (ahem) porking the porky when under the influence.

Does this mean all the men in Mt Isa are drunk all the time?

Shhhhhh, you'll bugger up the mayor's marketing plan.


Didja have to chew your arm off the next morning, but?

No, she managed to slip out while he was yet asleep ...

Equality in offence is a hockey thing.

Minicapt, you utter Fascist - obviously you have never heard of a "Two Paper Bag Job".

One for her, and one for you, in case her's slips off!

damn, thats just not fair. pretty girls need love too!!

Minicapt said...

Kaboom you ignorant fluffer: the proper terms are 'Coyote Ugly' and 'Wolverine Ugly'. The first means chewing off one arm; the second requires removal of arm #2 to prevent a reoccurrence.

I think it was Dean Martin who said,
"What's the difference between a dog and a fox?

About three drinks"

Gentlemen, gentlemen! The duelling pistols are locked in the supersafe with the other good stuff... and wronwright is missing with the keys.. I think.

Anyway, I don't want blood on the blog.

Oh, to hell with it.
Where's the popcorn and the soda, I need some entertainment!
