Fab Friday Fun


Hello patrons . I’m back on deck for tonight’s version of raffle night, thanks to Fiona for running it last week.

Things are looking a bit grim on the election front so lets relax forget about it for a night and have fun and listen to some tunes.

For the footy tipping people bomberrose is winning the AFL while MassiveSpray is in the front on the NRL . The less said about my performance so far the better. 

The kitty stands at $60.70 with 1 bet on the election being held and 1 still to be placed.( leftrightout).

Remember our beautiful Barmaids are here to attend to your needs
Courteous Bar staffMyself and bushfirebill will be doing what we usually do 

Raffle now starts as soon as this is posted remember first in first served.

Have a good night

    How could you do that to me? Look at the eye of that squid and those tentacles … Nightmarish indeed. I won’t forgive you!

  2. The Gibbon is now trying to take the credit for Labor’s superannuation policy, claiming he successfully fought against cutting the entitlements of those struggling miners on $100,000 a year. The gall of the man.

    A comment from his Facebook page –
    ‘I copped a bit of flak over the past couple of weeks for arguing against cutting the superannuation entitlements of working families including miners and others earning more than $100,000. The war has been won and their super is safe. Thanks to all those who supported me in the face of that critisism. The only concern now is Tony Abbott who, if elected, will cut the super benefits of low income families. I’ll be fighting that one even harder!’

    He’s copping a bit of flak on Twitter over it. Let’s hope there’s a lot more coming.

  3. Does anyone have any idea at all about how that was done, muttleymcgee?

    I am rarely impressed by trompe a l’oiel and the like, but that really is something else! As one could see from audience reaction.

  4. Confessions (& Muttley & Patricia),

    How do they do that stuff?

    Woofle dust, of course …

  5. leone and i think crean was on tv last night
    just caught a heep of reporters around him

    something about well yes wtte its a good move

  6. I’m not sure if you all realised, but the IPA have updated their policy wish list. The full 100 brain farts are on the second page of this piece from Wendy Harmer, along with a bonus Media Watch from 2001 with Stuart Littlemore talking about the IPA and the ABC, which you have to watch.

  7. leone

    i wonder if listing the ipa wish list would be a good idea
    on blogs
    re swining voters

  8. fair dimkum

    now they are talking about over there labor leadship stuff even before crean

    we have an election to fiight while they talk rubbish

    still think a little add for people lost over there would not hurt

    i just put up the ipa dinner thing link

    look i bet you they dont read it they are to busy talking about the past

  9. Confessions,

    Woofle dust (or powder) apparently featured in many TV children’s shows in the 1950s and early 1960s. I led a deprived childhood, and did not become aware of its existence until a few weeks ago.

    Further research suggests that it’s a substance commonly used by magicians.


    I hoped it would do the trick … 🙂

  10. You also need a magic wand.

    I can attest to the fact that a piece of dowel, painted black, with one-inch long white tips may LOOK like a magic wand, but has no miraculous powers whatsoever.

    Likewise spinach does NOT allow you to punch holes through walls. It does however permit you to break your knuckles trying.

    A Robin Hood suit does not bestow any extra accuracy on rubber suction-tipped arrows fired from your 10/- long bow.***

    Itching powder does not make you itchy.

    And you can’t tip up a milk bottle, preventing the milk from falling out by inserting a straw into it.

    Woofle powder makes all these things work, but Mr. Brown (proprietor of the toy shop in Strathfield when I was a kid) was always out of stock. Very sad. He always looked sad when he told me he’d just sold the last jar of the latest shipment. Oh well…

    On the other hand, Mr. Ciggs, who lived a few doors up the road from us, and who was an “SP Bookie” (whatever that was) did, in response to my request for a pristine copy of a particular Mickey Mouse comic, produce an exact replica. So at least I went through my first ten years thinking bookmakers actually made books.

    I believed that long after I’d sprung Dad putting Xmas presents under the tree, necessitating he and a teary I to sit down and have a long, rather depressing chat about Santa Claus.

    And no, you can’t fly by either tugging on your own hair OR by pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps.

    Only the Murdoch and Fairfax press can do that. They’ve been doing it for years.

    But white horses always made it a certainty (even on F-Troop).
