Thanks Surfer.
I republished it to a larger audience - got a hilarious reaction.
One reply: "It took you 2 mins to make a snowwoman with a voluptuous chest? Id like to see that. smile.gif "

It was snowing all last night. So my day went like this:


8:00 I made a snowman.

8:10 A feminist passed by and asked me why it wasn't a snowwoman.

8:15 So, I made a snowwoman.

8:17 My neighbours' nanny complained about my snowwoman's voluptuous chest.

8:20 The gay couple living nearby grumbled that it should have been two snowmen instead.

8:25 The vegans at No. 12 complained about the carrot nose, as carrots are veggie food and not to decorate snow figures with.

8:28 I am being called a racist because the snowwoman is white.

8:31 The Muslim across the road wants the snowwoman to wear a headscarf.

8:40 Someone calls the cops who show up to see what's going on.

8:42 They tell me the broomstick of the snowwoman needs to be removed because it could be used as a deadly weapon. Things get worse after I mutter: "Yeah, if it's up your a***"

8:45 A TV news crew shows up. I am asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow- women? I reply, "Snowballs" . I am then called a sexist.

8:52 My phone is seized and thoroughly checked while I am being blindfolded and flown to the police station in a helicopter.

9:00 I'm on the TV news as a suspected terrorist, intent on stirring up trouble during this difficult weather.

9:10 I am asked if I have any accomplices.

9:29 A little known jihadist group has claimed it was their plot.

Moral: There is no moral to this story. It's just the country we live in today

I love a good cartoon. And I rate my old mate Dean Alston's among the best smile.gif
This one is his reaction to this week's Wall Street melt-down. What a hoot - "Dum de dum" indeed LOL

I love a good nickname. Three oldies that come to mind

. the rugby player, John Eales, who was a towering second rower but also a fantastic place kicker, very unusual for a rugby "tight" forwad to be a match winner but Eales often was. His nickname was "nobody" as in nobody's perfect.

. then there were two other rugby players who played rep footy together and were good mates, Michael O'Connor and Chris Roche. Apparently neither were sparkling conversationalists which came across as them both being not the sharpest tools in the shed. Their nickname was "null" and "void".

. Aaron Baddeley is an Australian golfer who used to cop a ribbing from fellow players for his poor dress sense on the course. His nickname is "dresses" as in dresses badly.

. but the latest that I reckon is an absolute corker is for Bernard Tomic, who has been fined and heavily criticised for not trying his hardest all the time, to put it mildly. His nickname is funny but also spot on: Tomic the Tank Engine.

....some Star Wars fans have been left confused by a scene in the latest movie, prompting AMC Theaters in the US to warn new viewers before watching.

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' has swept box offices across the world, but the successful installment has divided critics and viewers.

A pivotal scene in the movie - that cuts the sound for added dramatic suspense - has resulted in viewer complaints about a 'technical glitch'. .

Upon the climax of the scene, the sound is intentionally cut for suspense - a move that was not picked up by some viewers. After consistent complaints AMC Theatre has reportedly responded by printing posters to notify new viewers that what they are about to watch is intentional. ....

Last night, I watched a Party Boat with 200 Bankers and their families and friends catch fire and sink a short distance off Rottnest Island. As quickly as my tinnie's outboard motor could manage, I rushed to Fremantle Harbour to raise the alarm. To make sure, I contacted not only Police, Marine Rescue, and Ambulance Services, but also notified SES and the RAC Rescue Helicopter.
That was 10:30 pm last night. It's a disgrace that now, almost 24 hours later, still nobody has showed up.
Seems I wasted five perfectly good postage stamps...
