    I know quite a few people who actually believe the ALP will have to go out and buy some mesat-hooks to prise Johnny and Marie Antoinette out of Kirribilli if there is a Labor victory.

  2. Paul Burns says:

    I meant meathooks.

    I take it that’s the little dessicated coconut still Araldited to the seat?

  4. Paul Burns says:

    Indeed, PC.
    Investors are worried Araldite shares will drop considerably in value if/when Howard loses the election.

    Well, you remember what Eamonn de Valera famously said about the “levers of power”… and that was only in bloody Ireland, where nobody even HAS any power!! Imagine what it’s like in a spot like Canberra, where somebody actually HAS some concrete power — Shakespeare and Tony Soprano combined…

    I believe Falstaff had something piquant or other to say about this whole sort of thing, but, as luck would have it I’m in the middle of re-reading “Midsummer” for the 400th-odd time; oh, and plus translating the odd bit of Lorca here and there (“your quilt of shadowed stone, shepherd, and your shirt of frost” — that’s someone much better, not me), so I can’t exactly recall what the Fat Man’s advice to you all would be, about all this…

    Don’t want to be a Fat Ma-aaa-aann…
    People would think that I was just good fun…

    “Meanwhile, back in the States” (as it were), I saw/heard quite an amazing band performance tonight, FDB. Details later, for your upcoming trip to NYC. Brazilian old-timey “choro” music from the 30s and 40s as done through the brilliant neo-arrangements of a traditional-style American string band (plus extras). I gotta say, there’s nothing quite like the nuclear-powered alert interplay between a mandolin, clarinet and fiddle, to make you sit bolt upright all throughout the whole evening.

    Good luck with the entire ongoing (and still annoyingly unfinished) election business, meantime. Bonne chance!

    No araldite remover required, his seat broke instead.
