Half priest, half goat, all man!

Ladies - form a queue!


I might write something serious about this - when I stop laughing.

The really amusing thing is that Malcolm Turnbull has already provided Labor with all the lines they need in the coming months; viz a "far-right, unelectable rabble that stands for nothing".

And consider this comrades; Perseus goes very quiet with his posts and Tony Abbott becomes the new leader of the opposition.

Coincidence? Probably.

Oh God, I hadn't seen it and now I'm vomiting all inside my mouth and throat. I might drown in my own vomit. Is it possible to unsee things?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Maybe I should have issued some sort of warning.

Gabriella said...

Instead of putting it on the front page of the site? Maybe.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

So, you're not up for some red-hot, Mad Monk action then?

Gabriella said...

I don't think I'll ever be ready.

On a side note- I've been scared shitless reading a site celebrating the win of Tony Abbott. People with the ability to vote.

Which male Australian politician would look better in a swimsuit?

Alex said...

I reckon the Libs should plaster that picture all over their campaign material next year. Maybe accompany it with Julie Bishop in one of those red and white striped body suit thingies that were all the rage in the 1800s.

The worst of it is that now I can look forward to my Liberal party loving Dad and his friends rolling out the tired old line "its not the man you vote for, its the party" like they always do when the Libs have a poor leader.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Interesting question, Patchie.

Greg Combet, maybe?

RandomGit said...

AHouch, you bastard!

The scary thing is, my reaction is starting to numb a little.

Like most people I suppose I've read a fair bit about this today. I've deliberately avoided anything by Glen Milne or Andrew Bolt (Oh God won't he be fucking gloating!).

I like this best so far on Abbott's ascension: "a triumph that, on almost any reading, represents a massive problem for the Liberal Party, at least in terms of, like, winning elections and stuff?" - Jeff Sparrow.

Leilani said...

I have just LOVED observing the libs this week. The Mad Monk as leader is hilarious. Can't you also post that pic of him in a colourful shower cap?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I suspect he was actually in surgical cap, Leilani, but I'll see what I can do.

Leilani said...

I actually thought it was one of those OH & S safety manufacturing ones. Silly me, we don't do manufacturing here anymore.

patchouligirl said...

I don't know much about politics I admit and feel safer commenting on who looks good in budgie smugglers. However it seems obvious that the next election is an unwinnable one for the Liberals no matter who is leader. This would make Abbott simply the fall guy, voted in for being the most expendable - a calculated and reasonable strategic move.

Boogeyman said...

I'd like that picture on a badge in time for the next election.

Perhaps with some caption like, "I see Dead Pollies", or "Tony Abbot - standing for stronger Border Protection against illegal Budgie Smugglers".

Alex said...

I think I'd like a Tony Abbott badge with the phrase "shit happens".

Pepsi said...

I know I am young and immature but for real ..................is that guy seriously thinking that he may have a chance of leading this country one day, I mean seriously does he really think he could be a player?

Dignity, does he have any??

Yes he is delusional, in a smug arrogant prig way? but honestly WOTF?

He'll get lots of invites to parties at Crown, but old men like that, when they reach a certain age should really just put it away.

Is not a full on embarrassment factor included in party pre-selection paraphernalia?

Yawn-fest election wise for a few more innings then.

More cricket posts please Ramon, ta.

Leilani said...

Alex, that is Gold.

I want one too.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Looks like the Squib presses will be working over-time producing Mad Monk badges.

squib said...

I couldn't fit the whole picture on a 1" badge. I could just squeeze his head on there with 'shit happens' but I'd have to be paid triple time, bonus money, and danger money due to mephitic vapours and emotional trauma

PLEASE make it go away!!!!!

Melba said...

You wouldn't need to even put his head on it, squib. Just the "bathers" and midriff, especially that bit that curves out just above his pubes, that would be more than enough for moi.

No writing would be necessary either.

squib said...

Melba, are you saying I'd have to handle HIS BITS?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

You're passing up on a golden commercial opportunity, Squib.

squib said...

You have to draw a line somewhere and that line is Tony's neck

Melba said...

I thought you were a professional, squib.

I would seriously love a badge with just his bathers. Everyone would know it was him, and I would wear him with Julia, Kevin and Darwin.

You could wear gloves?

eat my shorts said...

You know what. If I was 50-60 years old and heaps way conservative politically speaking, I'd probably go that.

As I'm not any of those things ...

Ew.
