  4. A woman being held hostage by an ex boyfriend pretended to order a pizza.

  5. feelthebern

    Brussel sprouts are good eating !!

  6. Mother Lode

    Is that why Monty posts here?

    Clearly in need of help, but the progressive left who believe they have acquired a ‘right’ to their minions will not recognise the nonsense Monty types as anything other than dutiful lefty propagandising.

    Thanks for your service Numbers.

    I couldn’t decide between these two:

    Gil McLachlan has done a fine job as AFL CEO.

    Bandanna Man has changed my mind on an Australian Republic.

    Shhh BBS. It’s supposed to be code!

    Sorry, Makka, for a few minutes I forgot that I was being held hostage😁

    Vikpol officers have been exhibiting remarkable restraint in response to unrelenting provocations by batshit crazy tinfoil hat wearing bogans.

  30. incoherent rambler

    Monty makes a very intelligent point …

    If you have an angle grinder

  31. I entered this thread with doubts about thread title but it is actually quite funny,

    So funny that I have decided to leave Qld and move to Melbourne. Mainly because I really admire : VICPOL, the ability to work from home, no need to make travel plans, freedom of expression and more mask wearing opportunities (I have a box of 40 that I have not opened yet). Plus I have a thing for handcuffs.

  32. thefrollickingmole

    We should implement the ideas of Bruce Pascoe and Professor Flannery tomorrow, this would make us a world leader in fighting obesity and greatly intensifying the “ buy local” campaigns.

  33. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Bruce Pascoe for the “Voice” to Parliament!

    Only if Annastacia triumphs in October can Queenslanders finally find those broad, sunlit uplands.

  41. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    From Bar Beach Swimmer at 4:14 pm:

    “Or Nimbin.”

    Numbin (as we refer to it)?

    Nah, try the seachange option Bar Beach Swimmer – find a place on a beach near a major city with good facilities, hospital, successful rugby league team, university, mixed economy such as mining, agriculture, vineyards, grazing lands, a sizeable harbour with developed foreshore parks, nice lakes, sailing, an airport …

    The coronavirus second wave in Victoria was caused by Jeff Kennett closing Fairfield Infectious Diseases Hospital in 1996.

    Mao, Xi and Andrews.

    Q&A is the most important and balanced current affairs show on telly.

  67. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    The ABC, the SMH/Age and the Guardian have become increasingly right wing over the last decade or so.

  68. Collingwood really deserved to win the 1958 premiership.

    That Monty is a smart dude.

  69. notafan

    Lol Spurgeon you’ve been hanging out with the #IStandWithDanAndrews lot on Twitter.

  70. Bar Beach Swimmer

    Rafe, hehe to that; they also should have won the re-match against North Melbourne in 1977

  71. H B Bear

    I agree with Sarah Hanson-Young.

  72. Rex Anger

    Iampeter is the most erudite, considered, coherent and balanced poster to ever grace Catallaxyfiles.com since its inception.

    I dearly miss his profound inputs on economics, philosopht, individual rights and Christian theology.

    Such a wise fellow…

    I consider m0nty and Numbers approach his stellar heights of intellectualism, but have yet to better him.

    Good on you Bar Beach Swimmer. 😎

    I first visited Byron Bay in about 1970, an idyllic country town with (at the main roundabout now at the east end of the main street) a single shop with an awning and a gasoline bowser on the footpath. It was all downhill from there (as a place to live).

    In about 1978 a Sydney mate doing a short term contract at Lismore rang around looking to scrape up $90,000 to buy a timber home one back from a beach near there. “Don’t be so bloody silly” we said “At Watego’s Beach? Never heard of it.” We got it together, he’s still there – I recall the time years ago when he rang from holidays in Tassie to let me know he had just knocked back an offer of $15 million!

    Nimbin – visited when it was just beautiful, in a splendid setting. Haven’t seen it since about ’95. Stayed overnight then at a bed and breakfast, the blokes hanging around the pub were my generation, all stumbling about, with a vacant gaze and barely able to put a sentence together – junkie central, awful degradation. I saw professional cadetship mates go down that track after marijuana first arrived, which clever young (and old) things would have me believe is harmless. 😉

    Bar Beach is, of course, a fine place to be.

  74. Squirrel

    Dan is better than Bolte – and should rule for much longer

  75. Rafe Champion

    Heck BBS, I didn’t think anyone else on the site would remember the great days of the Demons.
    At least the bad karma haunted Collingwood in a heap of grand finals since then!

  76. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    From H B Bear at 7:54 pm:

    Sarah Helter-Skelter is sexually arousing.

    Rafe,

    Yes, great, isn’t it!

  78. Hay Stockard

    I don’t post if I’ve been drinking. And I know of no one who does.

    Aussie rules players are masculine. And the shielas look lovely.

    Catholics for choice are orthodox.

  82. Tim Neilson

    I feel much safer knowing that the Victoria Police put that mentally ill guy into hospital in a coma.

  83. Robber Baron

  84. Anyway Mick I know a lot more alcoholics than I do chronic stoners.

    If only I was introduced to Kendall Jenner.

    Blaaaahhh!

    “If only I was introduced to Kendall Jenner.”

    Never heard of her!

  86. Rafe, your OPs are always interesting and original.

  87. a reader

    Damn I got beaten to mine. How about:
    *I absolutely love the supershot in Netball
    *Lewis Hamilton is an erudite, unsuccessful and oppressed British man
    *I’ve got a hard on for the SBS Tour de France commentary

  88. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    I looked her up Dot – she’s only 24! I’m going to ring your mother!

  89. Ozman

    You’ve been kidnapped
    Your kidnappers allow you keep
    posting on social media to pretend
    everything is alright
    What would you post that would alarm
    Your followers, without the kidnappers
    Knowing you’re asking for help

    Thanks, Monty. I can see clearly now.

  90. Rex Anger

    @ a reader-

    I AM Peter

    No, I am Peter! 🤪

  91. Clam Chowdah

    I love how “TAFKAS” (sic) talks about himself in the third person. So cute!

  92. Bar Beach Swimmer

    Julie Bishop would have made a fine PM.

  93. dover_beach

    Turnbull was our finest PM.

  94. Bar Beach Swimmer

    Dover, considering our last to choices, that was almost a snap.

    Squalid Aly would make a great LNP MP.

    “Monty makes a very intelligent point”

    CL, with due respect, the above comment isn’t funny even though it was obviously meant ironically.

  97. wozzup

    I would write: “I can’t find my pink ballerina frock and I cried so much that my mascara ran.”
    Nah on second thought, knowing my sense of humor they would just think I was taking the piss.

  98. That Clementine Ford is pretty all right. Do you think she might go out with me?

  99. JC

    Get in line, Adam. There’s a big line ahead of you.

  100. Bar Beach Swimmer

    The ABC is a national treasure.

  101. Get in line, Adam. There’s a big line ahead of you.

    Goddamit, every single time. That happened to me with Magda Szubanski too.

  102. Mater

    Melbourne is Australia’s most liveable city.

  103. AC

    I think Annastacia Palaszczuk is an intellectual powerhouse!

  104. Chris M

    ^ and she’s not actually a fat old guy with long hair.

  105. wretch

    Labor to win in a landslide in October with J. Trad to take over the top job soon after, can’t wait!

  106. Eddystone

    John Howard’s gun laws keep us safe.

    The Americans should adopt them.

    I can’t wait for Monday night and that lovely, balanced Q&A.

    It’s even better with Hamish

  112. Megan

    I’m so looking forward to the seven years of disruption as Dan’s Constructions Inc, builds the NE Link.

  117. Chris

    I can certainly tell ZK2A has been kidnapped.
    The rest of you are taking the piss; the kidnappers would be onto you.

    For myself, I sincerely apologise to the campaign for rainbow garriage, it was wrong to question the unthinking approval you demanded. I admit I am a self-hating gay, and coming out.

  118. PB

    Mr Biden will be excellent at managing..you know…that…the thing….you guys….
