Graphical Manipulations #87: Jonesy, Promises, That Bloody Rat, Naps, Thoughts And Calmness!

Well it’s been another busy week for our esteemed leader as he trips the world stage throwing gaffes willy nilly to the adoring crowds in places like Frenchies and Canadia.  And there we were thinking that our schoolboy French was tres atroce!  Thankfully he didn’t try schoolboy Canadian!

Which bought us to thinking about politicians, which led to quotes about politicians of which the following seemed germaine under the circumstances.

Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession.  I have come to realise that it bears a very close resemblance to the first – Ronald Reagan.

Politics is the diversion of trivial men who, when they succeed at it, become important in the eyes of trivial men – George Jean Nathan.

The Labor Party is going about the country stirring up apathy – William Whitelaw.  Take the hint Bill!!

The essential ingredient of politics is timing – Pierre Elliott Trudeau.  Missed that in Political Strategy 101 didn’t we Joe?

It is hard to escape the conclusion that in Australia, Parliaments are now mainly of ritualistic significance and the significance of the peculiarly parliamentary part of Australian democracy is quite slight – Donald Horne.

And finally:  I remember, when I was a child, being taken to the celebrated Barnum’s circus, which contained an exhibition of freaks and monstrosities, but the exhibit on the programme which I most desired to see was the one described as “The Boneless Wonder”.  My parents judged that that spectacle would be too revolting and demoralising for my youthful eyes, and I have waited 50 years to see the boneless wonder sitting there at the Treasury benches – Winston Churchill.  Seems Winnie was prescient Joe!

Thoughts of politics and would be politicians, full of pomp, bluster and circumstance led strangely enough to thoughts of Alan Jones and this;

Great Jones

Which seemed to lead, unnaturally, from pompous prats to promissory notes and;

Broken Promise Abbott

And back came The Rat who thought that the argy bargy between Andrew Bolt and Malcolm Turnbull worthy of note with;

Bolt Unhinged Rat

Found that he was most impressed with the ‘nose to the grindstone’ attitude of the Health department;

Healthy Rat

Was tickled pink with Barnaby’s attempt at misogynistic slapstick. Gosh! What a jolly jape that man is, eh?

Barnaby Oops Rat

And thought that Tony Abbott’s double entendre?  No, that’s not right!  Ummm!  How do you describe something that you say and comes back and bites you on the bum?  Er! I know, I know!  A Boomeranger Clanger!  Well something like that;

Short On All Rat

But the coup de laugh which had our Rat ROFLHAO (‘rolling on floor , laughing his arse off’ for the incognoscenti) was our Prime Embarrassment’s incomplete understanding of what might change the course of human history, with;

Open Business Rat

Obviously such convoluted thought was too much for our Great Leader and he was quite overcome by brain cell shutdown . . . . . or was it something else;

Sleepy Abbott

In all the confusion, all that Boomeranger Clangering and double entendring gave some food for thought with;

Country or Abbott

Which all faded into insignificance when thoughts of Tony Abbott pootling around the World came to mind and a deep sense of calm futility arose;

Keep Calm Oz Sale

And there you have it  . . . . . . !

AFTERTHOUGHT:  If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!

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!  We can only gaze upon such greatness with wonderment!

  3. I just laughed and laughed when Tones said that Bolt and Jones were ‘good friends of the government’. Of course they are! Everyone knows that its only the ABC and SBS who are biased.
    I further split my sides when Tones said that the NLP was the best chance ‘our side’ has.
    Which side was that P.M.? The upside or the downside? Must have been the Canadia side – by the way, apparently we’re open for business but we don’t pay penalty rates – or so Abbott thinks. There’s more than one meaning to the word you know Tones.

      The more I see of the Prime Winky Dill, the more convinced I become that there’s a bit of pugilist inflicted damage to the higher brain functions! No wonder he needs a minder — so often there appears to be no-one home!
      And penalties? Our penalty is certainly three (maybe more) years of the NO Coaliars and their Neutered Poodle Party hangers-on!
      Poor bugger my country!!


      • I dunno about his brain damage being the result of pugilism. He only had five bouts at Uni and they were in his own words “against weedy Poms” so it comes down to the question of whether he was born with a few Roo’s loose in the top paddock or that perhaps it was the result of Uncle Bob Santamaria punching him around the ring (if you catch my drift) when he was a lad. 🙂 🙂

          Certainly get the drift and it appears to be downwind! ;-))
          Still as long as he continues the embarrassing bits as the Prime Embarrassment perhaps people will get embarrassed enough to embarrassingly remove him and his far right nasties!
