Is that Moby Dick’s spout on the horizon, Cap’n Ahab – or is it one of them political dicks?

March 14, 2010

It's a whale of a whanger (or a whanger of a whale)...

... but Jumbo's is impressive too.


The Busted Blonde deliciously illustrated a posting on that Peter Bethune bugger with a picture of a penis. A whale’s penis.

Alf does not intend contesting the proposition that a whale’s penis is bigger than an elephant’s. But he understands that, for its size, the elephant has the bigger appendage.

Interesting, eh?

Damn – today’s warbling tells us there’s still life (but not much sense) in the Alliance

January 18, 2010

Great news for ornithologists with a political bent. The Lesser Warbling Alliance is not extinct.

A member of this strange species was heard warbling – about whales, of all things – this morning.

Conservationists probably will clamour to protect the wee rascal, but Alf regards it as a pest.

He did not have his shotgun handy by his bed. Otherwise he would have had a go at silencing the bugger before it flitted off.
