Today we have an open topic, all ideas, songs, poetry, your latest cooking disaster, just whatever is your fancy is more than welcome.
I was thinking – most people run off in the other direction when I utter these words – but anyway…I was thinking that today’s society has everything arse-around (if you’ll pardon the expression), that things serious are treated in a trivial manner but things trivial are treated seriously. Consider the media attention given to Toddlers and Tiaras coming-to-Australia and yet tomorrow is National Sorry Day. Today Australians are better educated than any previous generation, so why do the media treat us as if our only interests are trivial ones?
Perhaps humor is the best defence and so in this regard I have the following offering – this comes from A List of Insults for Tony Abbott compiled by a friend.
And of course the pic of Tony was just begging for a Caption Competition 🙂
“You Lucifer! You Oedipus! You Zeus! You Eve! You Judas! You Herod! You Salome! You Claudius! You Iago! You Villefort! You Steerpike! You Delilah! You Carker! You Macbeth! You Chichikov! You Stalin! You Hitler! You snake at the breast, you cuckoo in the nest! You ulcer of a sore, you pox of a corpse! You runt of a weakling, y…ou ape in robes! You fug of a fart, you faecal smear! You bastard of a bastard, you fool of a cretin! You parasite of a leech, you ailment of an illness! You butt of a witless joke, you swollen dead woodlouse! You shit-laced shoelace, you slumming Fauntleroy! You mould of the rancid, you mawk of a maggot! You crippler of the lame, you apostate of truth! You slut of whores, you pimp of hustlers! You shard of the shattered, you serf of slaves! You false note, you will o’ the wisp! You trapdoor of a trapdoor, you calumny of a lie! You foot of clay, you lapse of an error!”
My addition comes from Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well: You are not worth another word, else I’d call you knave.
