Graphical Manipulations #91: Leaners, Solutions, Solutioners, Star Wars, The Rat, Bosses And Pledges

Greetings fellow “Leaners”, mutual imbibers from the public teat of Government largesse.  One hopes that your week was as interestingly lactic as was mine!  We saw the Senate in denial that the week had been farcical.  We saw the Prime Winky Dill in denial that the Senate was a bloody mess with grim premonitions that it will turn into a complete and utter debacle.  We saw several PUPS and the head dog in denial that anything was amiss.  We saw our illustrious govmint in denial that there was anything to deny or that anything was amiss.  All in all a bit of a NO NO week you might say.  But under every every dank dollop of denial there are always the gems of satirical opportunity just awaiting the revelation of the Graphical Manipulator.  So, I present to you, the intelligent readers of this tyro of a blog, my humble, nay kow-towing attempts at capturing in a carefully manipulated graphic image the very essence of the quirky mind melding with the digital into a harmonious expression of the id, the ego and the alter ego all expressed in an outpouring of mental expression!  PS: Many thanks to Scott Morrison for his help with the last sentence.

We saw this little graphic somewhere and felt that while it told a story about the distribution of wealth in this country, it didn’t really tell it all;

Leaner Population

And naturally that led to thoughts about those “Leaning” pensioners and the grand plan (nay Solution) that our illustrious government has for them;

Coalition Solution

That led to thoughts about Final Solutions, variously perpetrated, by various dictatorial perpetrators on various minority groups (appropriately vilified) which led to;

Pick the Diff

We were taken by people who somewhat resemble science fiction film characters confirming the resemblance by making disparaging remarks about climate science and fictionalisation whilst resembling a fictional character in said science fiction;

Jabba Speaks

The Bloody Rat thinking we had stolen a march on climate issues then rampaged in with the Murdoch take on a global disaster that he’ll never get to see with;

AGW Rupert Rat

PS:  No idea where that extra ‘e’ came from but I’m sure there’s a mystical reason for it somewhere.

The Rat then pointed out that Julie Bishop’s foray into the fine are of diplomacy was going pretty well,  if you used the ire of the Chinese as a measure of AAA performance;

Foolish Bishop Rat

Rat was particularly impressed by Scott Morrison’s skills in the art of gobbledegook spoken in Gibberish;

Morrison Gibberish Rat

That Rupert Murdoch certainly knew how to take the measure of a man especially one that does as he’s told, when he’s told;

Principled Abbott Rat

It was felt that stereotyping our Prime Winky Dill would probably be a task well beyond the intellectual capacities of geniuses so he didn’t really have to ask not to be;

Stereotype Abbott Rat

Naturally (after restraining the rat) and considering all that praise of our illustrious ‘well it’s business as usual in the Senate’ Prime Minister in denial, we wondered how his Prime Brain was dealing with the current situation;

Force Majeure Credlin

And that led, ultimately, to pledges by political leaders and the infinite capacity for such people to put their foot regularly in their mouth and talk at the same time;

Pledging Abbott

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!

  1. Very nice! Tempting to use Buson’s;
    On the temple bell,
    Perching, sleeps
    The butterfly, oh!
    However, in the mood of the times; “Patience my ass! I wanna kill something!” 🙂 🙂 🙂
    Buson- so good as both painter and poet. The image of immovability combined with that of the most fragile delicacy – Wabi-sabi!

      Can certainly agree with the ‘kill something’ mood with this Tea Party government. 😉
      And must admit have always had a liking for Haiku and with the often beautiful art of the Japanese. Mind you some of the Chinese art’s pretty remarkable also. Have a great piece of a Yellow Mountain pine tree in black and white gracing the entry all — stunning!
      And something for the windy season.
      Three windbells cool the humid summertime,
      Clashing their shrilly sweet metallic Chime — Ho-O


  2. Dank dollops of denial indeed D. Great alliteration! As that mid 20th century poet and social commentator Chuck Berry observed; “Too much monkey business for me!” Great post, keep ’em coming. 🙂 🙂

      Thanks Ed,
      Seem to need more Zen calmness these days Ed, as I become increasingly angry with this joke of a Federal Government, so that I can fire up the satire gene and supress the anger one!
      We have Murdoch telling us what to do on climate change, the fruit loop right wingers dragging the country into living the worst attributes of the American free-marketeering, carpetbagger system of democracy for the rich, penury for the rest.
      Must keep remembering that anger released as action is the mistake maker!
