What’s going on in Blairistan?

Time to take a look at the doings of blogfather Tim Blair and his lieutenants.

First, kudos to Tim for his relentless coverage of the pending carbon tax in Australia; herewith, his most recent salvo.

Meanwhile, kae braves the carbon-dioxide to take some splendid photos of Avoca Beach.

Boy on a Bike whips out the camera, too.

Gavin Atkins attempts to make the “unknown” Julia Gillard a little better, er, known (also, don’t miss Gavin’s latest priceless news roundup).

Richard McEnroe on…Anthony Weiner: babe magnet.

Spot the Dog at Tizona brings us Andrew Klavan’s brilliant plan for peace in the Middle East.

Swampy gets an inspired idea for a new drink – or, rather, for a jumbo-sized version of an old standard.

El Cid has a great picture of the Preshizzle, apparently enveloped in a cloud of unknowing.

You will, of course, recall Churchill’s (apocryphal) quote about the British Navy: “rum, sodomy and the lash”. Andrea Harris provides an update.

Oh, and BTW. If you've been wondering where Wronwright is...

Wronwright is probably running short of Sumerian mead there on Mars.

Too bad I took the last from the Tardis..

BTW, didja see the link at the bottom of that post?

Wronwright said about a week ago that he had run out of Sumerian mead, so do you think he was holding some back on Mars???

P.S. Someone don't like Obama, from the link at the bottom of the post.

Crikey, Wronwright must still have the keys to the motor pool. I thought he'd been "promoted" to Chief of Building Maintenance for the Mind Control Satellite Project.

Sorry about the weather lately. Turns out that we did not have quite as good control over strength magnitude as we in the Weather Control Project thought we did. It's all about nonlinear effects of butterfly wing flapping, or something like that.

You should have heard the chewing out we got from our Dark Lady over this problem, worse than anything Karl ever gave us. She didn't even raise her voice.

That's not Wron, that's his older brothe Wrun. After all the problems with the football program at Ohio State Wron went supernova.

I think Churchill actually said "Rum, sodomy and the sash".

Boy on a bike said...

Heh heh. I told Kae that we should take a photo of the dinner and email it to you. Not that we thought you'd blow a gasket or anything like that for not being invited... or put a hit on us.

Merilyn said...

Er Paco, you do know that wronwright is blaming you for that Mars project?

Paco said...

Merilyn: Oops! Looks like I goofed.

Michael: Do you think we can stick wronwright with the climate-change rap?
