    Magda’s weight is a much greater threat to her life than the Covid virus.

  2. Plumbing conspiracy theories and slam poetry, and not before goddamned time.

    Ah yes, I’m a big fan of the bush slam and phrasing.

    “Comedian Magda Szubanski has accused controversial celebrity chef and coronavirus sceptic Pete Evans of fat shaming on social media.”

    Not a great fan of Evans but he’s right about this one. As for Szubanski…the word that springs to mind is “grotesque”. As I wrote yesterday, once upon a time a very long time ago, she was funny. Now she spends her time spruiking for attention and relevance….and what’s worse she is a total hypocrite…she herself has joined in many a twitter pile ons. She is an ugly obese mediocrity.

    Imagine, given her grotesque weight, what would happen if she was to catch Covid?

    Magda is of Polish heritage?
    That’s the only thing going for her.
    Incredible constitutions, her extreme obesity notwithstanding.

    Every fat chick (or fat bastard, for that matter) without one single synapse of self-control:

    ‘But, but, but muh genes’; then

    ‘Nom nom mmpffph glug mmfffpphphphhh genetics not muh fault.’

    Magda mating call.

    Criminy.

    Murray’s trowelled on an entire jar, or tub or vat or whatever the term is of foundation.

    Looks like a jowly mannequin.

    “Comedian Magda Szubanski has accused controversial celebrity chef and coronavirus sceptic Pete Evans of fat shaming on social media.”

    If we can shame the people who sell food which contains fat, fully disclosing how much fat is in the food, why is it wrong to shame people who eat those foods voluntarily, knowing full well what the fat content of the food is.

  12. Fashion leader Gucci revealed its fully feminized, emasculated clothing creations for men during Milan’s Fashion Week earlier this year, dressing young, mostly male models in outfits that aped the clothing of little girls and homeless women.

    Derelicte. Life imitates art.

    I wish I had the nerve to bet every cent I have on him winning – because I think he will and I could use another $2.50.

    There are some huge odds on Biden getting the lower bands of electoral votes.
    That’s where there’s good hunting too.

    didn’t Szubanski do a Run Lola, run parody on Fats Forward called Roll Magda, roll ?

    but that wasn’t fat-shaming it was comedy right ?

    been searching for the video for 2 days … no luck so far

    Officers forced Blake to the ground and ordered him to put his hands behind his back. When Blake refused to comply, K9 Dozer was deployed to force the defendant into compliance.

    The latest black victim to suffer lead poisoning and the inspiration for a new round of riots. Anyway, Dozer did his best and a big shin bone for him.

    An even better degenerate gambler.

    Can anyone explain the difference in the offences and sentences?

    Woman who breached WA coronavirus border by hiding on truck handed six-month jail sentence
    The Perth Magistrates court was told Vander Sanden did have an exemption allowing her to fly to Perth, but was told that after she arrived she would have to quarantine in a hotel for 14 days at her own expense.

    and

    Isata Jalloh, 19, and Banchi Techana, 22, illegally flew into Perth on Monday
    The pair did not have permission to visit and were quarantined at Perth Novotel
    They sneaked out at 1.30am on Tuesday and went to rapper’s party in south Perth
    Both women were arrested and pleaded guilty to the breach on Thursday
    They avoided jail time but have vowed to fly back to Western Australia ‘by force’

    Floor Jansen is a metal singer … a really good one! She sang the “Phantom of the Opera” with her band Nightwish and whilst she was superb, the duet didn’t punch. However! Here she’s singing with Henk Poort – who sang the role in various national stage productions. And I have to share. Enjoy.

    Whoever Blake is, I’ll bet he’s got more teeth marks in him than the six-pack of pies Magda scoffed for dinner.

  28. Leigh Lowe

    Whoops.
    Just realised I forgot to send my blistering Epistle to the Greens MLC.
    Had her lumped in with the ALP on the list.
    Why would I have done that, I wonder?

  29. Knuckle Dragger

    Zyco,

    Only thing MAY be that truck chick had a list of priors as long as her arm, whereas plane chicks didn’t. A long history of criminal skankness will certainly influence sentencing.

  30. Gab

    Hahahaha! I got booted off the ”COVID Q&A and Checkpoint Locations” FB page for calling a male ”Karen” because he was ranting like a Karen..

    Snowflakes can’t handle even the slightest dig made in jest.

    Lol. Gab, post a link as I’ll do the same.

    KD at 10:44.

    He acknowledged Vander Sanden did have a criminal record, saying that was related to “a meth habit” but that she no longer used the drug.

    So yes, form.
    But six months?

  34. JC

    Blocked drain.

    Okay, that’s a euphemism for blockchain? 🙂

    Oh it’s Facebook. Don’t bother as I don’t go there. I thought you meant Q&A.

    Covid money buying ‘grog chaos and gambling’ in Indigenous communities, Noel Pearson warns

    Exclusive
    Paige Taylor
    INDIGENOUS AFFAIRS CORRESPONDENT
    @paigeataylor
    An hour ago August 25, 2020

    Indigenous leader Noel Pearson has warned that money from COVID-19 support measures such as the JobSeeker program and the ability to tap superannuation accounts is fuelling a surge in “grog chaos and gambling’’ in vulnerable communities across the nation.

    The Cape York Institute founder has also attacked governments for ignoring the pleas of Indigenous leaders to limit alcohol in their communities, a failure of policy that was driving misery, violence and hunger.

    A day after the West Australian government defied police and some community leaders to implement a banned drinker register rather than blanket bottle shop restrictions in the remote Pilbara, Mr Pearson questioned whether state and territory governments were truly committed to the “shared decision-making” with peak Indigenous organisations that they signed up to in the Closing the Gap national agreement.

    “There is grog chaos all over the country, from Cape York to the Pilbara,” Mr Pearson said.

    “With the JobSeeker supplement and superannuation withdrawals, the normal level of grog and gambling chaos has gone through the roof.”

    Mr Pearson questioned whether moves to ban problem drinkers would help curb the alcohol problem and accused state governments of being in thrall to hotel interests. “These state and territory governments are harlots to the Australian Hotels Association. The banned drinkers register will do nothing,’’ he said.

    “It’s a figleaf for a craven unwillingness to stop people from profiteering from misery, violence and hunger.

    “And these same governments have been charged with Closing the Gap? I thought these gov­ernments committed to ‘shared decision-making’ with the peak organisations?”

    The McGowan government says the banned drinker register was floated widely and early, and that Indigenous people were among Pilbara residents consulted at public meetings in Port Hedland, Karratha and Newman.

    Last week, John Young, principal of the remote Catholic school in Wadeye, 400km southwest of Darwin, said school attendance had fallen to 30 per cent since the federal government’s coronavirus supplement effectively doubled welfare payments. Teachers and school staff battled fatigue because they were kept up throughout the night as alcohol wreaked havoc on the community.

    In the Pilbara, 1500km north of Perth, remote Aboriginal ­communities are dry but towns such as Port Hedland are not. Almost 12,000 of the region’s 60,000 residents are Indigenous.

    AHA’s WA chief executive, Bradley Woods, rejected Mr Pearson’s comments as inflammatory and unhelpful. His organisation championed the Banned Drinker Register for the Pilbara.

    It will also be rolled out on a voluntary basis in the far north Kimberley, where WA Police Commissioner Chris Dawson and Indigenous leaders such as Ian Trust have called for blanket­ ­bottle shop restrictions on full-strength takeaway alcohol.

    “Targeted solutions are required to combat alcohol-related harm rather than blanket solutions that fail to direct the focus and resources of government towards those most in need,” Mr Woods said on Tuesday.

    The Northern Territory has had a banned drinker register since 2017. Stationing officers outside bottle shops who ask for identification has led to claims of racial profiling.

    Yeah, thought about it but what the heck, one more serve of lame pics can’t hurt.

  39. FMD Zulu Kilo Two Alpha. Ray Charles could have seen that coming. One question I would ask is the superannuation thing. How many Aboriginal people in those areas would have a fund to dip in to?

    Wow. The government defied police …

    There’s quite a number of international flights that leave Melb daily, is dan expecting me to believe flight carriers fly into Australia empty to pick up passengers, daily?
