The Aussie beer awards

Entries close January 29.

Every year hundreds of brewers enter the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) in a bid to win the title of best beer in the world.

Last year’s winner was this mob at the Matilda Bay Brewing Company.



A warning to all men

A public safety announcement brought to you via teh Interwebs and bingbing.

Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven’t heard about it. This will only become more commonplace as the weather warms.

A ‘heads up’ for those men who may be regular Lowe’s or Home Depot customers. This one caught me by surprise.

Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you or your friends.

Here’s how the scam works:
Two seriously good-looking, 20-something girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say ‘No’ and instead ask you for a ride to McDonalds.

You agree and they get into the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen October 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, & 29th. Also November 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, three times Monday and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant.

Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found cheaper ones for $1.99 at K- Mart and bought them out. Also, you never will get to eat at McDonalds. I’ve already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth to Lowe’s, & Home Depot,.

Give the bombs to the kids

So the bastion of British left-wingery has come out attacking the new airport scanners. Sure, they kinda suck, but when you’re getting on a plane with 300 strangers, about to go 10,000 odd feet high, are they really that bad?

And what’s the worst way one could attack someone or something?

Yep, kiddie porn. Apparently, the scanners violate UK child protection laws.


But when Andrew Sullivan sees that weird non-photoshopped picture of Big O looking down his nose at Joe Biden, he has to puzzle a bit to figure out why posting it to the White House Flickr account didn’t strike everyone as a bad PR move. He puzzles and puzzles about how Americans might react badly to a President appearing to carry himself in a rude, regal way to a person he supposedly picked to be a second-in-line successor, and a close advisor. Then, Shazam!

Thank you, Miss Attila, and thank you Insty. You’ve inspired me.

PS Underbelly lovers may appreciate shazam.

The Burj Khalifa?

Well, that’s what they have to call it now since the UAE is up the proverbial financial creek. Khalifa is the bloke pulling the strings next door in Abu Dhabi. And it’s clear he’s pulling quite a lot a strings for his neighbour now, too. Say, what a nice airline you have!

There has been speculation that Abu Dhabi will seize a number of Dubai’s trophy assets in exchange for its assistance, including DP World, the international ports business, and Emirates, the region’s largest airline.

BTW, 828 metres (2717 smelly feet).


It was just so blatant. It was like Cameron finally actually did run out of money – and scriptwriters – and just took a big Lefty dump on everyone.

You know what I mean?


A mate of Paco, Penguin, offers an Antarctic review…

The natives are an intelligent, but violent and superstitious species. They live in an uncivilized and Stone Age culture and, living as hunter gatherers, have the usual short life expectancies and high infant mortality rates. They suffer terribly by often being consumed for lunch by spectacularly nasty fauna, and suffer other brutalities such as not having invented toilet paper.
