Graphical Manipulations #63: Backflips, Nounery, Diplomacy, Reality, The Rat And A Gee Thanks!

Gosh!  What a week!  There we were, just starting to get collectively infuriated and righteously indignant that our beloved Federal Government had Gonski Conskied, Gone with Gonski and then de-Gonskied when that rush of adrenalin was endocrinely stultified with a floppity, flippety backflip of immeasurably immense proportion and we were once again Gonskied!!  More or less, or is that less or more?  The immediate thought was; ‘there has to be a book in this’, and there was;

Backflipping for Beginners

Books, lots of books, led to thoughts about bookshelves and collections, and that turned to collective nounery, as it would, with this;

Collective Smugness

Thinking of all of the above and Tony Abbott’s and Scott Morrison’s adventures on the diplomatic stage which were astutely upstaged (you might say) by Indonesia led to contemplation of the fine art of diplomacy and;

Diplomatic Oops

And that led to thoughts of Julie Bishop, our Mini – ster for Foreign Affairs and her bold attempt to show China that we wore really big boots.  And then a touch of reality returned with this;

Reality Check Bishop

And then our wascally widdle wat (er, Rat) came scuttling back with his jaundiced view of the behaviour of the species Homo sapiens subspecies politicus related firstly to diplomacy;

Diplomatic Tony Rat

And to telling a lie or three;

Fibber Morrison Rat

And on secret reports which become unsecret and widely disseminated;

Fraudbull Rat

As well as what happened when you get between a State Premier and a bucket of money;

Grumpy Barry Rat

On the mysteries of saying things which are really not said but misunderstood and might be possibly promises that might not be kept because people thought they weren’t what was meant – well something like that, which in the linguistic confusion led to;

Backflip Abbott Rat

And finally on an intelligent mans truism, which the rat when rodentomorphising can readily consider as being pretty much on the money;

Stupid Conservative Rat

The Rat also requested that the NO Coalition return as soon as possible to THREE WORD SLOGANS as he was having difficulty in fitting all the verbal waffle on to his commentaries.

And that led, finally, to thoughts about what this poor bloody country ended up with given that Labor was more interested in infighting and backstabbing all and sundry whilst losing sight of the main game and letting the NO Coalition get into office by default.  You could say that our thankfulness knows no bounds.  Well you could, if you were a conservative of the John Stuart Mills ilk, eh? That led to;

Thanks a lot

 And there we have it, except for the last bit!

Postscript: All characters appearing in this work are entirely, and amazingly, fictitious.  Any resemblance to real persons, living, dead or in a zombie like state, is purely coincidental with an exceptionally high probability of being the construct of a deluded mind trying to grasp the true meaning of the political unreality of Australian politics, al la NO Coalition!

    Humor is the only way any sane person is going to get through this 3 years, so thanks.

    Anyone who gets serious about it will worry themselves to death.

    This lot would have to be Australia’s most expensive stand-up comedy show.

    I just hope all future electors are paying attention and remember all this when they are at the ballot box.

    This is my cartoon on it . . . .

      Nice one Mick. Keep up the good work!
      Voters are a bit like State Premiers — don’t get between them and money!

    Thank you, once again, Deknarf, for your wonderful uplifting wit. Much appreciated. 🙂


  7. A pithy post Deknarf, a dip of the lid to Rat for his references to John Stuart Mill, he’s much better read than Christopher Pyne!
