Super swell   29/10/2013

Cripes, he’d need a brown wetsuit.

A Brazilian surfer could have ridden one of the biggest waves in history today as waves of up to 100ft created by St Jude’s storm battered the European coast.

Pirate recordings   

One way to shiver their timbers:

Whoever believes that Britney Spears’ music isn’t powerful, need think again. Chart toppers like “Hit Me Baby One More Time” and “Oops I Did it Again” have proven to be effective weapons when blasted at approaching Somali Pirates who reportedly retreat at the mere sound of the songstress.

There hasn’t been much sunshine around here lately with south-westerly squalls and showers galore. But when Sol poked through the gloom yesterday at the breakwater it met a seal of approval.

Chip on his blockhead   15/10/2013

To go undetected, it would have to have been one of those ultra micro-micro chips.

A friend of Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Youssef al-Qaradawi is making the wild claim that Israel planted a chip in the radical cleric’s brain and is engaging in mind control.
According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, Egyptian actor Hassan Youssef is a personal friend of the radical Muslim cleric. In a video clip from Egyptian television translated by MEMRI, the actor explained why he believes that the al-Qaradawi seen these days is not actually the really al-Qaradawi, and it’s all because of Israel.

Irritable? You ought to see its owner   

Toil and trouble bubbled galore in the Slatts’ guts over the past fortnight. Gaseous eruptions north and south, bloating that would lift a zeppelin and worst of all, four days of non-stop hiccups.
Various sawbones perused many blood tests and scans and prescribed assorted nostrums for limited effect. Finally a young resident at the hospital local determined a condition and prescribed a potion that has eased the tumult below and blocked rising acids. Now for the first day in two weeks I’ve gone four hours without a burp or ‘cup.
Touching wood like a paranoid koala.
Upside? I can’t wait to warn some annoying kid that I’ve got an Irritable Bowel.

Junk sale   6/10/2013

Robin Williams said cocaine was God’s way of telling you that you had too much money.
Reckon the same applies to owners of Andy Warhol paintings. Except the only kick those collectors of crap should get is one in the pants for being gormless poseurs.

AFP – Two masterpieces by US artist Andy Warhol go under the hammer in New York next month, with the highlights of the auction season expected to fetch up to $120 million.

Dig the digs   

Find it hard to come to grips with people congratulating on us buying a new house. Congratulations for forking out thousands above the price, particularly 20 large to thieving scoundrels from the government??!!!!
It’s strange how the things you abhorred in your youth – in this case a multi-fronted brick veneer – seem eminently suitable in latter years. Besides, as the hipster generation is forced out to the early BV suburbs, the 60s symbols are attaining much “coolness”, my daughter informs. Anyway, it was a good price, overlooks Lady Bay and has a chook run and backyard pizza oven.

And this exhibit at Chrysler Classics show at the Bool this weekend would be ideal in the driveway. As if it could be afforded.
