The Boomtown Rap Bitchfest Awards For 2011

I’ve wondered, dear reader, about myself and these annual Awards. I really have. I mean, it’s not very nice, is it, what I do? Who sees off the year with a bitchfest?

I would embark on an expansive treatise of self-justification, but I know concentration spans have universally shrivelled, that the web is no place for introspective meanderings and expansive written self-expression. Why then, should I sabotage myself? Would you have me leap lemming-like from the clifftops of injudicious bloggerdom to dash myself on the rocks of readership oblivion?

I will not do it. You get no explanations. You get no apologies. All you get is what you deserve, this year with a lot more pics and a lot less text. See, I’m learning. Dumb it down, graphic it up. So here ya go, leaner and meaner than ever. Ladies, gentlemen, and everything in between, I give ya…

Troy ‘Sniffy’ Buswell On The Nose Again

Troy ‘Sniffy’ Buswell put on quite a show in the parliamentary monkey cage yesterday when the Libs’ plan for extended shopping hours was kiboshed by the Opposition. Frothing-mouthed sore loser Sniffy declared the Opposition bottom-feeding scum, then with an extravagant flourish produced a box of Weetbix, a can of Whiskas and some dunny paper and went on a rampage against IGA supermarkets (see report here).

Sniffy Buswell’s fury with the Opposition is over the top given that his party, when in opposition, blocked the previous ALP government’s attempts to extend trading hours, but channeling his frustration into an attack on IGA is el bizarro and contemptible – something akin to kicking the dog cos you’ve had a bad day.
