If we’re lucky, some of us may have a claim to fame – something we can brag about. Something about our lives that other people find interesting, exciting, and yes, are maybe a little jealous of. For example, I was in the Olympic Stadium the night Cathy Freeman won the 400m at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. But so were 100,000 other people, so maybe that’s not that special. Maybe that’s not really a claim to fame. Sadly, I think most of us are more likely to suffer from claims to lame than claims to fame. Things that, at first, [...]
Today’s guest post by An Idle Dad: This post carries a language warning and is possibly not safe for work due to language Here we go again. People get to tut and um about ‘fun police’ or in this specific case ‘cupcake police’. People get to mutter darkly about the nanny state. They’ll nod to each other and say “Political correctness gone mad”. Well, those people are cunts. Cunts with nothing better to do.

Here’s JJ & T with another weekly chat about life, the universe…and well, anything… JJ: Hey T – looking forward to the long weekend? T: You have no idea!

In May 2011 I first published a post about Malcolm Turnbull on my old blog. I ran a slightly updated version of that post on KiKi & Tea when T and I were using some old blog posts to add some content to our site before we went live. In that post I outlined my reasons why I think Malcolm Turnbull should quit the Libs and run as an independent. I wrote the piece when Tony Abbott’s term as opposition leader seemed to be at its strongest, and it looked like the idea of a Malcolm Turnbull Prime Ministership was a thing of the [...]
If, like me, you have an amazing sense of humour, then you will love Will Ferrell and the latest in a long line of celebrity endorsements as the US Presidential Election race comes to a head this week. In this short clip, Will Ferrell is encouraging Americans to vote on Election Day (Tuesday November 6) by promising them a number of things. Dancing and eating human toenails are some of the things he promises he will do if you decide to vote as voting isn’t compulsory in America. He also throws in a little “Vote for Obama” at the end. It seems many [...]
