    It’s ok IT as long as you send the sheep to the next village.

  2. Mayan

    There are two LNP closet cases, one called CP, and not Pyne FYI.

    That advertisement is the stupidest-ad-ever-made.
    It will not sell lamb.

    Correct.

    Another dumbarse failure by leftist smartarses who are never held to account for the dollar results of their smartarse marketing.

    Sack the agency.

  4. Zulu Kilo Die Onuitspeeklike

    Yes, should have said we did Wolf Hall. Quite Ok.

    “Wolf Hall” got as far as the execution of Anne Boleyn. I haven’t read any of the books, do they go on after that? Cromwell fell from favor over the marriage to Anne of Cleves, so there are still two wives to go.

    Yeah, but it’s all good – it’s all the growers money, anyway.

    I have never eaten lamb.
    It is a nasty smellling meat.
    Now I know why.

    I have always preferred beef.
    Sirloin or porterhouse, on the grill or pan fried.
    Washed down with red wine or lager.

  7. lotocoti

    Yes, should have said …

    The English version of Heimat, The Village (2013) is OK in a grim trouble’t mill way.
    Something right up Maxine Peake’s alley.

    Suck it, Katie, you SBS-natural faggot!

    True.

    What an epic smackdown.

    The Business Insider likes the lamb ad.

    This year’s Australia Day lamb ad is the best yet, and celebrates the nation’s humour and diversity

    You are to be commended. The eating of sheep is a disgusting and shameful habit, for which there is no hope of redemption.

  13. jupes

    Fuck sheep

    Sure IT but you have to be aware of the consequences:

    A man who has had sexual relations with an animal, such as a sheep, may not eat its meat. He would commit sin.

    A quote from the Ayatollah Khomeini taken from probably the greatest smackdown I’ve ever read – Mark Steyn’s The Shagged Sheep.

  14. johanna

    Agree, sheep meat is horrible. And, calling it “lamb” is a lie. Australian “lamb” is a grown up young sheep.

    I have eaten actual lamb, the beast being a few months old, and it is almost palatable.

    Oh. Wow. My eyes are burning, and my ears. The drummer!

    You had the sound on? Why?

  17. Tintarella di Luna

    For the first 23 years of my life I didn’t even know lamb existed. The first time I tasted lamb was when the Sunbather took me home to meet his mum. She cooked a leg of lamb with the crispiest roast potatoes and honeyed carrots. Maybe it was the novelty but I’d never tasted any meat as delicious. I asked my mother why we’d never eaten lamb?

    She said: Remember the awful smell at the butcher’s? – that was the smell of mutton and she said that we never had lamb because she always thought the butcher would sell her mutton and not lamb.

    Lamb has been my favourite meat ever since, it does have a different smell but not overly so. Mutton is not something I could stomach, it does smell awful.

  18. John Comnenus

    OMG, Infidel Tiger went the full Kiwi at 9:03 pm. You never go the full Kiwi Infidel, never!

  19. calli

    I love leg of lamb, roasted with spuds and pumpkin and carrots, studded with rosemary and garlic and served with mint sauce and gravy.

    But not this Australia Day.

  20. Gab

    LOL Tinta, you, your Mum, me and my Mum, the exact same story.

  21. Diogenes

    Agree, sheep meat is horrible.

    Mrs D is quite partial to it, if I am forced to eat it , I like the cr*p cooked out of it. I much prefer products of that magical animal the pig – it gives us bacon, ham, crackling, roast leg, slow cooked pork belly, braised pork cheeks,is an ingredient of pork sausages & bratwurst, and best of all the rendered fat is fantastic on black bread instead of butter..

  22. Muddy

    Holy snot! I just made the mistake of downloading an Anderson Cooper 360 podcast (I must be more blissfully ignorant that I previously thought): he’s interviewing one of Trump’s spokespeople and he’s just the rudest prick. I want to headbutt him with a tyre iron through my laptop screen. No wonder I try to avoid the normal anxiety-porn industry semen. [Apologies to semen, which plays an important part in life].

    Muslims congregate at home of muslim bastard who ran over and killed Israeli soldiers recently to celebrate.

  24. candy

    That ad is not about lamb at all, but reconciliation/indigenous issues with a bit of asylum seeker issues thrown in and gay issues. MOstly though indigenous issues about being here since “forever”. There ‘s no recipes or hints or anything about dietary value of meat. Just a political message. Weird.

    Funny how there are no children in the ad.

  25. johanna

    Diogenes, the rendered fat from frying speck is delicious on bread. The pig is indeed a noble animal.

  26. That ad is not about lamb at all,

    Paid for by lamb growers.
    Hopefully someone will mobilise them via Twitter & FB, so they get really angry with the MLC.

  27. lotocoti

    Toad in the Hole using grilled lamb loin chops, rosemary, tomato and onion isn’t too shabby.

  28. C.L.

    … she always thought the butcher would sell her mutton and not lamb.

    Ha. I just commented on Julie Bishop wearing sleeveless frocks on the other thread.

    Given collectivists’ penchant for kiddies (and not in a good way), it is indeed a curious omission.

  31. C.L.

    Lamb rump. Wo. It doesn’t get much better. Bit expensive but it’s totes scrum.*

    Is Mayan having a mental breakdown or are the hormones acting up?

  33. calli

    Mayan is amok! Full moon.

  34. Infidel Tiger

    Lamb chops are mintox and a slow roasted leg of lamb is bonzer.

    I’ll never be able to eat either again now.

    Sad.

  35. Rabz

    mintox

    Bluddee hell had to look that up – I thought you’d started spouting newspeak.

  36. John Comnenus

    Just enjoyed watching Ted Cruz smack Holder, Obama, the Dems on the Judicial Ctee and Sen Franken around like they were red haired step children from an unwanted relationship after a hard night in the tiles.

    Cruz was magnificent. He will be a strong ally of Trump in the Senate. I look forward to him having a showdown with Sen McCain.

  37. Infidel Tiger

    Let’s all agree that in 2017 mintox becomes a thing again.

  38. Zyconoclast

    Just terrific; speaking of media bullshit and fake fucking facts; the glorious Kirralie Smith tears 2 arses for a duplicitous Sydney morning herald reptile who lied to her in an interview.

    If this woman does not get into parliament we truly are stuffed.

    I have said before we get the likes of Hanson an inarticulate publicity hound. She is like controlled opposition. The main parties love her as a distraction.

    Quality types like Kirralie Smith don’t have a chance.

  39. Muddy

    I wonder if these publik edjamahkayshun (reprogramming) attempts are simply used to support the (often successful) calls for legal changes to many aspects of our lives. For example: Despite many decades and trillions of dollars creating an awareness of … , it has not been successful, so the intervention of The State is necessary to correct … (fill in the blanks with topics of your choosing).

  40. Infidel Tiger

    Everyone said mintox in the 80’s and that was the best decade of the last century.

  41. jupes

    Lamb chops are mintox and a slow roasted leg of lamb is bonzer.

    Lamb chops are the best meal on earth.

    I won’t be eating them this Australia Day though that’s for sure.

  42. lotocoti

    Israeli Air Force doesn’t use cluster bombs any more?

    Using the IAF would be a disproportionate use of force (per Squalid Aly).
    Far fairer for the IDF cannon cockers to blind fire a volley of 155mm HE.

  43. Gab

    I love lamb. Cook it any way, any cut and I’ll eat it!

  44. Zulu Kilo Die Onuitspeeklike

    Far fairer for the IDF cannon cockers to blind fire a volley of 155mm HE.

    I’d use WP, but then again, I’m never likely to get invited for tea and bikkies with Squalid Aly.

  45. Nic

    I’ll be in Tokyo on Australia Day. Sod Lamb, I’ll be at Pierre Herme and Maisen.

  46. Top Ender

    Will check out The Village – thanks Lotocoti.

    Zulu, the next book along from Wolf Hall was Bring up the Bodiesdoesn’t look like anything film-wise is planned for it.

  47. John Comnenus

    Zulu,

    What are you marking that you need WP? A target for a napalm strike?

  48. lotocoti

    I’d use WP

    Too much concrete and stone.

  49. John Comnenus

    Lamb is good.

    I love the 80s but I never heard the term Mintox! To be a good Cat I might start using the world mintox just to be mintox and show it!

  50. Muddy

    Far fairer for the IDF cannon cockers to blind fire a volley of 155mm HE.

    Napalm impregnated with pig DNA. Propaganda that burns. I’m not sure if there is such a thing; if not, bugger off, it’s my idea.

  51. Gab

    Rabz, the only thing missing in that “report” is the CNN logo.

  53. John Comnenus

    Almost finished reading Four Princes, John Julius Norwich’s most recent book. It is about the interactions of Henry VIII, Francis I of France, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and Ottoman leader Suileman the magnificent.

    Great read that goes through the Wolsey and Cromwell stories as the chief advisers to Henry which is the story of Wolf Hall and Bringing Up the Bodies.

    Norwich has written some excellent books I have read including an outstanding three volume history of the Byzantine Empire, a brilliant single volume history of the Mediterranean and a wonderful single volume history of Venice.

    Recommended reading that highlights just how much the French had done over the years to help Islamicise Europe. The French have been the most arrogant and pernicious influence on Europe bar Nazism and Communism. They are reaping the Islamificaton of Europe they have so frequently championed in order to get a little more from the Holy Roman Empire, Italian city states or the Pope. They truly are the most self absorbed people.

    Many happy returns areff! Have some more. 🎂🎂🎂

  55. Gab

    Well then, a very Happy Birthday to you, Areff.

    Gab, I can’t stop chuckling when I think about the ascendancy of Fatty Trump.

    Good luck and congratulations to Monty. I hope all goes well and Mrs Monty and you bring a wonderful, healthy little Monty into the world. May he or she be healthy and bring much joy and happiness to you and your family.

    After a suitable period of proud dad baby talk we can return to bashing your stupid ideas. But in the meantime enjoy the wonder and joy that a new child brings.

    Oh and good choice not to call him or her all those stupid names you have ruled out, and make sure you use the proper spelling – not like Sussan Ley!

  60. calli

    Where did you get that document, Rabz? It looks important.

    Send it off the CNN – it’s a matter of national security!

  61. Zulu Kilo Die Onuitspeeklike

    Zulu, the next book along from Wolf Hall was Bring up the Bodies – doesn’t look like anything film-wise is planned for it.

    My reading is that’s the one that ends with the execution of Anne Boleyn – that’s already been filmed – and you need a strong stomach for the final scenes…

    I don’t think that’s very fair. France was vital to keeping the Muslims at bay for centuries, and it was Frankish knights who, along with the Normans, did most of the heavy lifting in the vital First Crusade. This gave Constantinople a good few centuries of breathing space.

    Zulu, the next book along from Wolf Hall was Bring up the Bodies – doesn’t look like anything film-wise is planned for it.

    The last book in the series is “The Mirror and the Light,” which covers the last four years of Cromwell’s life – the marriages to Jane Seymor, and Anne of Cleves.

    “Divorced, beheaded, she died, divorced, beheaded, she lived.”

    well well well, the Zipster was right again.

    Next you’ll triumphantly announcing that your prediction that the sun would rise this morning was spot-on. Zippy the Omniscient!

    The problem I have with you is your conflating of the scientific concept of genetics with the pseudo-science of race.

    Any recommendations for similar series to take in?

    These methyl groups can also be passed on through generations, meaning the environment your parents grew up in can affect subsequent generations.

    I have never drank metho for that very reason.

  75. “Bring up the Bodies” was dead boring. I gave it a helluva try, even used it for the dunny read.
    Nup, put it down & never picked it up again. It’s still laying in my wardrobe or somewhere, waiting to be used when the tally ho runs out or something.

    The idea that culture matters more than race is nonsense, the two are not meaningfully separable.

    Zipperhead reached the conclusion culture is so intertwined with genetics that we should kill off every German because they must posses the genocide gene and therefore try it on again. That’s where the idiot got to.

    Hey, ‘gunner! I just found your Pommy cousin. And he’s drinking tea.

    No thats standard left wing idiocy. genocide isn’t a cultural aspect of germans.

    You asked for proof that culture and genetics were bound, I gave it you.

    The relationship between culture and genes does explain a lot though.

    Education outrage!!! read this and be sick at the sheer depravity unleashed in Utah over their own version of “safe schools”..

    Utah dating homework tells girls: be ‘feminine’ and ‘don’t waste his money’
    Assignment outlining guidelines for ‘$5 Date’ providing separate instructions for boys and girls is example of misogynistic lessons common in the state, critics say

    “I was horrified. It wasn’t the first time that we had seen content that was gender biased in this class. But this was over the top,” she said. “As a teacher, you have a responsibility to be inclusive and to think very carefully about the message you’re sharing.”

    Her daughter, Lucy Mulligan, a junior and honors student, said she was immediately surprised by the language of the assignment and the fact that it offered different directions for girls and boys.

    “I just thought it was so bizarre,” she said. “The girls’ assignment was essentially based around how to please boys.”

    It wasn’t the first time that we had seen content that was gender biased in this class. But this was over the top
    The handouts said they were offering girls suggestions “from the guys” and visa versa and told boys to “make plans for the date”, pick up the girl and pay for the meal.

    The boys’ worksheet further said, “At a restaurant, say what you’re going to order so she will have a guide in ordering”, “Girls like flowers and little gifts”, “chew with your mouth closed”, “no gross noises” and “Don’t comment or be concerned with how much she is or isn’t eating”.

    Highland’s principal Chris Jenson did not respond to a request for comment but told the Salt Lake Tribune that the teacher did not write the lesson and that students could spend time with a friend to complete the assignment.

    Jenson declined to identify the teacher but said, “She wanted it to be a light-hearted lesson in social norms.”

    Mulligan said it seemed the students had no choice but to go on a date, noting that the worksheet requires a “date’s signature”.

    She said she was particularly concerned that LGBT students would feel excluded or hurt by the message of the worksheets, which assume that girls only date boys.

    Have a look at the sheets and see what you would delete if you wanted to give advice to your own kids.
