Oh God, this nonsense again!

Robert Nelson with his daughter Olympia, now 11


I don't know what is more depressing about this entire sorry beat-up.

The utter predictability of the responses taken by the various parties, the fact that it allows Hetty Johnson yet more oxygen or the fact that a senior academic thinks it's OK to wear that shirt with a bow-tie out in public.

Sod the issue of child protection, I'm calling on Kruddy to do something that shirt.

And did anybody else wonder why Nicole Kidman called her kid Sunday Roast?

Sunday Roast!

Funny Ramon, funny. I wish I'd thought of it.

The Today Show was having a ridiculous names morning. What is it with celebrities and calling their kids stupid names? I think Frank Zappa started it, back when it was original to call your kids retarded names that were going to make them objects of ridicule.

And the shirt is bad, but it's worse to be asking the 11 year old. I mean really, what would she know? But I'm bored with the all the feigned outrage too.

I guess Keith would be fairly sensitive about the "guess who's coming to dinner" jokes that would follow.

The 11 year old still makes more sense than Dennis Shanahan, wari.

Fair enough. My 7 year old makes more sense than Dennis Shanahan.

Nothin' wrong with Moon Unit as a Christian name. It's solid, like 'Neville' or 'Claire'.

When it comes to the current issue, I find myself hating every single contributor to the debate no matter which side they come from. I just hate them all.

Pretty much sums up my attitude, Perseus.

Dweezil's my favourite Zappa Child. And he covered the food theme with Diva Muffin.

But the genius who penned Bobby Brown can name his kids anything in my book. What a masterpiece. Come to think of it, did he actually write it, or just sing it?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I liked Dweezil's work in Duckman.

So Kruddy blathering on about a 6 year old not being able to give "informed consent" came about 5 years too late then?

Nice to see he got his facts straight before telling the world this stuff just "disgusts him"

How insulting, I know I hate my mum showing off the old baby pics, imagine how mortifying it would be at her age to have them published an' all??!!

My point Witchie, was that this mag dragged out photos that were five years old, in a fairly childish attempt to say "look at us, we're sooooo transgressive".

It adds nothing to the discussion and even Bill Henson thinks they're a pack of dills.

Art Monthly - childish
Olympia Nelson's parents - badly dressed, psuedo-intellectual crappy artists
Krudd - Doesn't he have anything better to do?

Perseus said...

Rudd's the only one in this whole debate that isn't doing anything wrong. People put these photos in front of him and ask for his opinion. He says, "They suck!" Why are people getting antsy at him?

re Sunday Roast - as long as its a lamb roast it beats Tom Cruise!

We had a sheep called 'chops' once. Or maybe they are going to do a Brangelina and adopt Monday, Tuesday etc.

Friend of mine had a pet duck called "Roast".

Roast ran away.

catlick said...

You think Roast ran away.

I had a tortoise called Raskolnikov. It kept escaping and in the end we let it. Anyhoo, a few months later we got another tortoise called Raskolnikov II and we put it down in the backyard and suddenly, out from a hiding place, came Raskolnikov I, and he immediately raped Raskolnikov II. Then we never saw either of them again.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Cripes Perseus, that's something out of Dostoevsky right there.

Catlick, my friend claimed Roast ran away.

Patch, did your sheep also have brothers called Hush Puppy and Charlie Horse?

catlick said...

I was thinking possible abduction a l'orange.

That girl needs a clip over the ear. What right does any 11-year-old have to lecture anyone sabout anything?
