Month: December 2011


This is a Summer Slowdown Guest Post (thanks QoT!) – a repost of a blog post from earlier this year. Clearly the media meme of the month is “won’t someone think of the children, and the imaginary innocence we ascribe to them in order to justify our lack of openness about basic anatomy because it’s ~icky~?”

BFTP: Obligatory Tony Abbott Said What Now? Thread

It’s a Summer Slowdown repost. Just reminding everybody, in the midst of all the ink being wasted over a Rudd challenge that simply will not happen, that Tony Abbott still regularly reveals a mind-boggling worldview via ill-judged attempts to be charming and/or witty.

Otterday! And Open Thread.

Please feel free to use this thread to natter about anything your heart desires. Is there anything great happening in your life? Anything you want to get off your chest? […] Commiserations, felicitations, temptations, contemplations, speculations?
