So sad comedy has gone to the dogs

It’s very sad what’s happened to humour during the pandemic. Two things actually happened to the funny side of life. One, humour is in short supply right now. And two, any current attempts at humour are not very funny. So where has humour gone, because our funny bone hasn’t gone anywhere, I’m sure. Well some experts believe humour began to fade away when it became politically incorrect. It’s true that most humour is at the expense of someone else, especially ethnic stereotypes – Irish dimwits, mean with their money Scots, all Greeks run fish and chips shops and so on…. Read more »

Greatest game of all just as interesting off the field

The greatest game of all – that’s some boast, but if it’s only a reference to the 80 minutes on the field we’d have no trouble agreeing. Mainly it’s because of the players, without a doubt the biggest asset of rugby league. Never mind the dumb antics of some of them after dark or on the weekends; on the field there is pure genius at work. Think of Andrew Johns, with seconds left to play, going to the short side and finding Darren Albert, who scored quite possibly the greatest try in history. Indeed the feats of some of the… Read more »

How much worse can things get in 2020?

Many moons ago the editorial team in a local newspaper dubbed a work experience kid “Sixty Questions’’. The reason being that the kid, who was a lovely young fellow by the way, just kept asking questions of all of us, day after day for a week. I was reminded of this when someone asked for the millionth time this week if life can get any worse right now. Now it’s true that we are living in interesting times, to say the least. Here in our own country we went through a very long drought. And even before that ended horrific… Read more »

Pressure’s on to impress your Valentine

OK, girls and boys, Valentine’s Day is just four days away and the pressure’s on. Whether it’s for the first or 50th time, the conundrum remains the same: what will I buy for that special person in my life, the love of my life. So, start thinking, because there’s notRead more »

What if it never rains again and other silly claims

I remember the words well: “If it rains again.’’ They were said by a politician during an interview late last year and I recalled them today as I sat by my window watching the rain tumble down in Campbelltown. I won’t embarrass them by naming them, but those four littleRead more »

Just about had enough of 2019, so bring on 2020

Bushfires burning for weeks, drought, water restrictions; 2019 is certainly going to be a memorable year for all sorts of reasons. We also voted twice during the year to elect – for better or worse – new governments in NSW and Canberra. In the state, by the time the LiberalRead more »

The parade that stops our town

A spoof logo of this year’s Fisher’s Ghost festival doing the rounds landed in the messages box of my phone yesterday. It was mildly amusing but we won’t be publishing it here because it does not deserve to be exposed to a wider audience. But enough of this silliness andRead more »
