Satan Disendorses Trump

LUCIFER, Prince of Darkness and Emperor Apostate of hell, has officially disendorsed Republican presidential nominee Donald Jeronimo Trump.

“His actions comments are beyond the pale,” announced Satan, a key backer of the Reagan and Bush administrations. “On behalf of all of the legions of the damned, I’m cutting all ties to the Trump campaign. I may be the cloven-footed embodiment of evil, but being assosiciated with this blabbering fascist is starting to hurt my brand.”

Lucifer claimed that his stunning denouncement was inspired by Trump’s recent rise in the polls. “We put him up as a bit of a joke, but we never expected it to go this far. He’s facing over a dozen unresolved rape allegations, including from his ex-wife, and is still on the brink of becoming president? How can I support him when  I myself am a father? How could I look the abstract concept of lies in the eyes?”

One Nation

There’s worse news every day.

Thursday, 15th of September: in her maiden speech to the Senate, Pauline Hanson declares that Australia is “in danger of being swamped by Muslims”.

Sunday, 18th of September: speaking to a forum of European conservatives, former Prime Minister Tony Abbott describes the influx of refugees to Europe from “Middle East and Africa” as a “peaceful invasion”.

Wednesday, 21st of September: an Essential poll of 1000 people suggests that 49% of Australians want to ban the migration of people of people of the Islamic faith to Australia. A further 11% aren’t sure either way. If the poll is accurate, those of us who oppose such a measure are in the minority.

The Eight Deadly Sens – Part Deux

In the three months since I wrote the first half of my musical profiles on the Crossbench Senators (which were pretty obsolete even at the time) a lot of crazy shit has gone down in Canberra. Australia’s Woodstock Floriade has come and gone, Australia’s Disneyland Cockington Green has done a roaring school holiday trade and Eric Abetz has learnt to control silver with his mind. So where the Corangamite have I been? Well, mostly stuck on a horrible writing procrasticoaster, riding in circles around the rickety well-worn tracks of my limbic system while a sneering coat-hanger of a carny refused to budge the breaks. But the other reason for the wormwood-bitter pang of my absence is that each of the dozen times I’ve sat down to patter out this post I’ve been so overwhelmed with tedium and despair at the state of our Parliament that I’ve shut down into a drooling Palmeralysis. So, after a not-insignificant amount of pulling with the aid of needle nosed pliars and fermented grape juice, I present to you – my teeth.

Losing Our Heads To Save Our Necks

We must stop at nothing to prevent death-cult jihadists murdering innocents on our own soil. That’s why anyone who isn’t a covert member of ISIS will support the Government’s new, recently announced anti-terror legislation: the distribution of mandatory “Freedom Collars” to protect Australians from beheadings.

 

Attorney General George Brandis said that the titanium-plated neck-bands, which must be worn by all citizens at all times, will make “soft, sweet Aussie throats” impervious to “scimitars, sabres, and halal tomahawks.” The decision follows recent discussions around once again increasing the national Terror Level, the Government metric of how terrified everyone is supposed to be. “A few weeks ago we raised it from ‘Lingering Nervousness’ to ‘Mass Paranoia'”, said Senator Brandis, who gave his press conference in full military regalia surrounded by 300 body-armoured rifle-wielding AFP SWAT officers, “I can now reveal that we are considering further upgrading it to ‘Salem-Level Hysteria’.” Prime Minister Abbott also weighed in on the necessity of the devices and the very real threat of Jihadists lurking in bushes and decapitating passers-by: “The situation in the Middle East is a highly complex palimpsest of nuanced ethnic, economic, religious and political tensions; significantly exacerbated by the bloody legacy of generations of colonial exploitation. But don’t worry about all that shit. Just do what Daddy tells you or the baddies will chop your off your head.”

Morgan Freeman and Fallon inhale helium

Ongoing conflict in Gaza and the Ukraine was overshadowed today by shocking reports that Morgan Freeman and Jimmy Fallon inhaled helium. The “Tonight Show” host and co-star of hit Jim Carey vehicle “Bruce Almighty” inhaled the gas from red balloons, the same colour that paints the jagged ruins of Palestinian hospitals and the smouldering wreckage of Flight 17. Millions watched these dramatic events unfold in a day that many will never forget, especially when Fallon and Freeman finished imbibing the invisible gas and spoke in squeaky voices.

The Eight Deadly Sens – Part I

Between 2008 and 2011, the balance of power in the Australian Senate was held by two erratic and headstrong minor party senators. They looked like this:

As of three weeks ago, the balance of power in the Australian Senate is held by eight erratic and headstrong minor party senators. They look like this:

xenephone-others

You take one down, you pass it around, you alienate the other seven by negotiating with it and plummet unceremoniously in the polls. When both Labor and the Greens vote against them in the Senate, the Government will need the support of six of the eight crossbenchers to get legislation passed. We all know that Australia’s Senate preference system is the result of an elaborate practical joke played by Antony Green in the 80s, but who are these august octuplets expunged from its unknowable loins? And, to add a splash of clickbait to a tedious piece of amateur political analysis, what’s a fitting track to represent each of them in my Crossbench 2014 Mixtape? So here are the first four of the eight deadly Senators, presented in descending order of how cool their names are.

Scott Morrison’s Otis Redding Cover

"We want a logo that says 'market-savy neofascism' and 'vaguely satanic' at the lowest quote you can give us."
“We want a logo that says ‘market savvy cryptofascism’ and ‘vaguely satanic’ at your lowest possible price.”

A lot of people seem to think that the Immigration Minister is all about human rights abuses and terrifying millitary secrecy. That’s not the Scott Morrison I know. “Moro Bar” (as his bros calls him) is a close friend of mine and I can confirm that he’s actually a cool, fun and even soulful guy. Breaking international law and collaborating with oppressive regimes by the refoulement of refugees is just his day job. When he’s chilling, Moro Bar is into surfing, spliffs and recording nostalgic rhythm ‘n’ blues covers. Moro Bar is really shy about sharing his creativity. He told me that “if the cabinet hears it, Cory will call me a willy woofter”. I said that I could share one of his songs on this blog because not many people read it and I know you guys will be supportive. So here is Scott Morrison’s unique version of an Otis Redding classic, accompanied on guitar by our mutual mate, my infuriatingly talented brother Matt.
