I can't watch. It's like firing Elmo


So like yeah.

Newsflash Evan Harding: Its called comparative advantage.


Hey, here's an idea. Tell an entrepreneur how to spend his money. That will make the New Zealand a more effective and productive place. Hell, maybe Peter Jackson could save the trains too.

Stolen from the SMH which said "An iguana runs for the deep water of a canal in Davie, Florida, where a colony of a few hundred wild iguanas have lived for the past 10 years".

JJ says 'Why it would be cool to be an Iguana':

No need to worry about rent
Job? WF Job?
"Green around the gills" is a compliment
You'll probably star on The Crocodile Hunter Diaries with Steve Urwin at some stage.
No need to worry about pesky election expenses claims forms
You have a long tounge.
No bats an eyelid when you eat bugs

Glory Days


From Stuff:

RIO DE JANEIRO: A Brazilian referee faces suspension after she awarded a goal that television pictures showed was scored by a ball boy.

The 89th minute goal allowed Santacruzense to snatch a 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Sorocaba in the Paulista Football Federation (FPF) Cup on Sunday, a regional tournament played in the state of Sao Paulo.

Pictures showed that after a Santacruzense player shot narrowly wide, the boy collected the ball with his feet and took it back on to the pitch.

However, instead of returning it to the goalkeeper, he subtly tapped it across the line into the net.
Although there was nearly 10 seconds between the shot going out and the boy placing the ball over the line, referee Silvia Regina de Oliveira awarded a goal amid furious Sorocaba protests.

This is classic. Once I was playing hockey for a Massey University team and I did something similarly cheeky and got away with it.

We were on attack in the D minutes after I had scored a goal. I was playing winger and was on the right of the striker who shot at goal. His shot went wide of the goal and went out of play. It hit this metal fence post and made a large twang! Everyone thought that was the end of the play. Not so, the ball rebounded into play really fast and having ran on I slotted the ball between the legs of the goalie and the goal. And the ref gave it to me, possibly believing the twang was from the the goal post.

The other team was furious! And complained to the ref bitterly to no effect and they then abused the fuck out of me for being a cheating punk. We won 3 - 1. Cool.

I loved playing Hockey at Massey. In my second year we had a really good team (it was the Massey third team) with some really skiffull players and goalie with a huge heart. We all gelled really well and to the disbelief of the community we made the Final of the competition.

After some good form we had just sneaked into the last semi final spot because we protested against a team fielded some first grade players. I got a goal in each half in the semi for a 2 - 0 win and we made the final. I know it sounds vain telling this story but it was one of those 'moments' you never forget. I'll also never forget in another game catching a flying ball to the balls. They carried me off cos I couldn't walk for 5 minutes.

I remember they did a preview report on the Radio on the day of the Final saying we were going to lose and it pissed me off. We lost by about 5 goals I think. I know I played crap that day. That day the Coach tried to psyche us up by playing 'Eye of the Tiger' at our team run warmup but right, now the Bruce Springsteen song is playing in my head!

Python eats Alligator in Everglades and feels sick


So here it is, the infamous Python vs Alligator photo

This is what happens when pythons are released into the Everglades. The pythons get eyes bigger than their stomachs and think it's safe to eat a whole crocodile.

python vs crocodile in the everglades picture photoThe Professor Mazzotti who knows about these things believes the alligaotor was alive when the battle began. It may have clawed at the python's stomach as the snake tried to digest it, leading to the blow-up of the stomach..

The python was found with the gator's hindquarters protruding from its midsection. Its stomach still surrounded the alligator's head, shoulders, and forelimbs.

Scientists have documented four encounters between the giant snakes and alligators in the last three years. The encroachment of Burmese pythons into the Everglades could threaten an $8 billion restoration project and endanger smaller species.

Wikipedia notes the invasiveness of the Python:

Native to southern Asia, the Burmese python is a relatively new invasive species in the Everglades. The species can grow up to 20 feet (6.1 m) long and they compete with alligators for the top of the food chain. Florida wildlife officials speculate that pet owners released their pythons and they have begun reproducing rapidly in an environment for which they are well-suited

Snakes on a Highway!

A happy, well fed python sits on a highway after swallowing a pregnant ewe in the village of Kampung Jabor which is about 200km east of Kuala Lumpur. The six-metre snake weighing 90kg was too laden to move, making it easy for local firemen to capture it.. with what looks like a piece of rope.

Peter Brock: Its started Pt: Steve Irwin Pt II


Steve Irwin is sitting in in God's office. He turns to the Big Guy in the Sky and says "Hey God, I appreciate you trying to make me feel at home and all but I asked for a Croc, not a Brock.

Bring Back BucK


This water in the gas pipes crisis has gone on longer than a reading of War and Peace by Porky Pig. I'm fed up, or rather Not Fed Up.
 
Burger King, Lambton Quay, has been closed for over a week! A week good people! I haven't had a BK Chicken in a week!! This is the equivalent of forgoing chemotherapy when you have cancer!!  Its like not getting laid on your wedding night! Its like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife*!
 
Mickey Dees will not do as a substitute. Nor will Kai For Coons as one coonish resembling comedian once described it at the Indigo*. What am I to do? Its not like I'm going to do anything rash and have sushi for lunch. Raw fish people! They live in the ocean! They aint got no jobs! Its cold! I'm not eating raw cold fish.

 

Without an end to the madness in sight, the Beehive up the road looms as an answer. BK simply needs to put in a pipe to the debating chamber from the BK kitchen. I'm sure all the hot air released in the chamber could be utilised somehow.

 
And there endeth the rant.

* Its anaemic, don't you think

* Why the dumb name change? San Francisco Bath House? Sounds like a gentlemanly retreat of some kind. It would help explain some of the gay bands they've had lately.

Stever Irwin: Its started part V:


When asked about his favourite childhood programmes, Steve Irwin replied, "Thunderbirds was best but
there's always be a place in my heart for Stingray".

Snails: good for stomping on.


So like don't you just love it when it rains over night and it causes snails to run for cover to the foot paths so you can then stomp on them on your way to work in the morning? I just love the sound they make. Crunchy like an apple. 

Squishy like Elle Driver's eyeball. I was really pissed when I heard that Stage Coach was raising loser cruiser fares. And then I get on the bus and my fare falls by 25 percent! Squish! The wheels on the bus go round and round. Round and Round. 

Much like the Steven Irwin jokes. See below. I have a Crunchie bar. They are made of gold you know! What you got? I tried a Milo bar yesterday. While you get more go with Moro, this wasn't so bad. It was crunchy like one of those kremalta covered chocolate rice bubble things my mum used to make me and the Ginger Ningas for birthday parties and school lunches. 

If you, dear reader, did not have a mum who made you chocolate rice bubble things then NEWSFLASH! She didn't love you.

You were simply a food bill.

Steve Urwin: Its started Pt II


Despite the tragedy that is Steven Irwin's death, I been thinking it was rather foolish of him to go swimming without sunscreen because as we all know, sunscreen protects you from those harmful rays.
 
Da dish!
 
Thank you, you guys have been great,  I'm here all week. Try the crocodile.
