Tonight's panellists
Geoff Gallop - former Western Australia Premier
John Marsden - award winning author and teacher
Anthony Ackroyd - Australian comedian
Melinda Tankard Reist - social commentator
Sophie Mirabella - Shadow Minister for Early Childhood Education

Tankard Reist - what a 'tard. Particularly her views on war and so on. (It's man made and all futile, and women suffer disproportionately in war.)

Plans go or-ree? WTF? Does this person asking the question mean awry?

Anthony Ackroyd. He's funny? Seems to method channelling KRudd.

Women in body bags, women raped? Sheesh. Give your mouth a break you stupid woman.

Geoff Gallup. WTF is ray-bid? Oh, he means rabid.

These people are too powsh for me.

Onya Sophie, she's spoken some sense, and I agree with her about the 16 year old going sailing.

The old bloke (Old Jack) on the mashup is a scream!

Anthony Ackroyd - giving village idiots abad name.

Plans go or-ree?

I must say it stumped me too for a sec.


kae said...

Carpe, g'day, pleased you could make it here!

Welcome Lou Mac!

I had a course today where I work on how to write emails and memos. It's was entitled "Memo and Email writing etiquette".

We were looking for the room it was in and a receptionist-type person asked us if we were looking for the the ettie-qwet course... we nearly laughed out loud!

Keep talking, I'm looking after some dinner... late as usual!

Egg said...

Is the Tankard half full?

A dissertation on the Yartz of War, nonetheless - Sun Tzu, eat your heart out ...

kae said...

Hiya, Egg (smiles and waves).

Carpe Jugulum said...

Rabbits as a metaphor???

OOOOh Sophi seems kinda p1ssed.

Anthony Ackroyd - uber tool.

Egg said...

:) @ kae

Anthony Arseroid??? Is he still around?

Carpe Jugulum said...

Tankard - Corporate social responsibility, yes lets regulate that too, it's not like we don't have enough Govt intrusion in our lives.

Carpe Jugulum said...

Oh now we have the gratuitous JWH comment, Tip to Marsden - shut up you fool.

Tankard - words fail me

kae said...

Interesting to note that Takard and the blokes run off at the mouth, but Mirabella is told to keep it short - well, at least Sophie's talking sense...

petfood said...

pleasantly surprised by Marsden's common sense.

kae said...

See, Sophie's getting applause from the audience..
Ant Ache is a pain.

Loved it when Ant Ache spoke about the bit in Farenheit 911.... blah, blah, blah.

kae said...

The rabbits/Brits metaphore was good, he was on about Australia wasn't he? Where'd the rabbits come from?
But don't you criticise any other people for the same thing.

kae said...

Hey, Lou Mac, I missed the Marsden bit. In the kitchen...

Carpe Jugulum said...

Ackroyd - for the love of god will no one shut this man up, oooh another gratuitous JWH barb. (get over yourself d1ckhead.)

Oh my god, check scarf girl asks an intelligent question, and is promptly blown off, thanks Tony.

Quite intelligent questions from those two young ladies, i'm impressed.

petfood said...

that young lass was spot on about responsibility, pity about the follow up motherhood statements.

Carpe Jugulum said...

Video Q for Anthony - Chk Chk Boom

The man is as funny as an open wound.

$300 billion debt, yes Anthony that is quite funny.


Gallop just went for the throat, Anthony doesn't look happy.

kae said...

I'll have to check it out tomorrow night... arrgh! I heard part of one question but wasn't tuned in.

Next week...

Thanks for sharing!

Carpe Jugulum said...

Evening Petfood,

you're right about the motherhood statements, it would have been nice to have the young ladies question answered.

Carpe Jugulum said...

Who out of that group would i have around for dinner;

Sophie - Yes, she seems interesting.

Gallop - Maybe, not too sure.

The rest - I'd string razor wire & set booby traps to keep them away.

Egg said...

You folk deserve medals - flicked over & couldn't get past 'royd talking about existentailist veejios in the early hrs, FFS ...

Mine Host said...

Jahayzuz Kee-rist!

What a bunch of dribbling idiots on that panel.

On the strength of the comments here, thought I'd watch it online.

Killed it at 7 mins 30 secs.

Geoff Gallup sane, but has already admitted to being a pansy. Sophie Mirabella is sane, the other Three: Oh My God!! I need smelling salts to cope with the knowledge that those three tools are allowed to VOTE.

kae said...

Sorry Mine Host... I guess you had to watch it with us... safety in numbers.
Besides, I didn't see it all (guess that's a "fortunately" for me?).
