When the topic of food comes up it can mean only three things;
1] Nicole Richie is being talked about (lack of food)
2] We’re hungry
3] The artisan chefs of “The Iron Chef” TV show have made their presence known.
It was the latter this time as the US series of Iron Chef drew fire. “Scallops”, “Scollaps” or “Scal-lops”. Now you read the later and think; WTF? Well in Peteland this is an entirely justifiable way to pronounce it. The Americans aren’t too sure, but Pete is – he just hasn’t picked on version yet. He used all 3, sometimes in the same sentence…
Australia’s xenophobic core again reared it’s ugly UGLY head with Pauline Hanson (The Orange Peril) back on the political path. You see we really don’t need her! With a racially biased government (who based their policies on her FAR right leaning ranting) and a populace now convinced there actually is a War on Terror (insert giggling here) she’s a dinosaur. Out-moded, out-maneuvered and lacking the media attention she used to crave, all she can really hope for now is a nice lump sum for running a political campaign… ooohhhhhhhhhhh!! So that’s why!!
It’s amazing how the closeness between Australia’s government and the soon to be deposed Junta of GWB has grown in the 10 years of Howard leadership. They agree on many many things; foreign policy, the detention of Australians illegally in Guantanamo Bay, the continued suppression of a sovereign nation (or two), buying expensive US made hardware, being suspicious of those unlike the ‘majority’. It’s great! Let’s all be Luddites together!! Well now the new Australian citizenship oath is sounding very close to the new US one. Odd that! Well i guess we’re all swearing toadying loyalty to the one master after all.
Millions of Peaches this week went from Boomtown Bob, to Madonna, to Peaches being booed off stage, to our favourite DJ Tourettes. You see Bob is off lecturing Turkeys, not not the bird, the country apparently. Why? Who the fuck knows!! Madonna loves Boomtown Bob. Hell she’s loved everyone else enough, maybe his name came out of the barrel this week. She thanks him for inspiring her to go to Africa and
take someone else’s child… pay a man for his child… liberate a child from poverty. Go Bob. Nothing like rich white people going a stealing kids from poor people. Wait on, aren’t they the Stolen Generation? Meanwhile Peaches got booed at the AOL Winter Warm Up. The crowd didn’t really warm to her at all, or her 12 changes of clothes during the occassion. Mind you if Bill Clinton wasn’t backstage she wouldn’t have to get changed at all. But DJ Tourettes was in town to give his support. What a fascinating guy!
The Fuck ‘O’ Meter this week:
That’s not even worth the graphic…
