Oh dear God, haven’t we suffered enough?
Australia's most famous housewife, Dame Edna Everage, will share her beauty secrets with the world by launching her own cosmetics collection.
It is made in collaboration with MAC, and Dame Edna is the first Australian celebrity to have an international collection with the brand.
Sorry Pers, I know you think Barry Humphries is the goat’s knackers, but even you would have to concede this goes too far.
There are so many, fresh, talented Australians on the world stage. Why pick this tired, one-trick pony?
But by far the worst thing will be the inevitable fawning over this unpleasant cunt by the local media when he makes a flying visit to Australia to flog the product.
Again we’ll be treated to countless gushing articles about how Humphries is a “comedy legend” with a “sharp tongue” and “comic flair”.
No he’s not. He’s a nasty old man with a talent for picking on the defenceless and a fondness for making pompous pronouncements about a country he hasn’t lived in for 30 years.
The paper goes on
Adelaide stylist Filip Odzak said he thought it would be successful.
"When we think of Dame Edna we don't see a man in drag - she is an Australian icon."
Again, no he’s not.
An icon is devotional painting of Christ or the saints*, of particular relevance to the Orthodox Churches. Barry Humphries is mostly devoted to himself.
*Sadly, not Ed Kuepper or Chris Bailey.
