The ‘Suppository of all Wisdom’.

A cheeky little number and ‘suppository of Wisdom’..
A few weeks ago someone questioned the silly terms given by wine tasters to alcoholic beverages. Far from it to complain about our national past-time of tippling but to call a wine having ‘ambition’ or being ‘arrogant’ is getting a bit wild. I have often watched those buffs at wine-tasting. Those with small noses need not apply. Most wine tasters have enormous noses not unlike the proboscis monkey with those flexible noses. Do they also drink through their noses?

Apart from giving a simple wine the most ridiculous attributes on par with an enraptured tourist guide describing Sydney’s opera House to Japanese tourists or Lang Lang’s suave description of Beethoven’s Ninth symphony to musical conservatorium students we have this latest discussion from our possible future Prime minister, Mr Tony Abbott.

He is a Rhodes Scholar, apparently meant to say repository – a storage place- rather than a medication inserted in the rectum. Get a bit closer to your screen now and listen carefully.

His political opponents have now available one of the richest veins of jokes, cartoons, and endless requests for Mr Abbott to bend over and get free ‘suppositories of wisdom’.
This is George Bush’s territory in Australia all over again.

    I suppose Kevin’s response is going to be “Up yours, Tony”. I was equally fascinated by another video on the link page in which a woman got very uppity because someone said ‘miaow’ whilst she was speaking. Australian politics seems much on a par with HK where the infamous Long Hair (a Legco member) has been known to throw bananas at the Chief Executive. Kevin doubtless knows the putonghua for both repository and suppository. Tony sadly doesn’t seem to know his arse from his elbow.

    Hmmm, why do I suspect Abbott knew exactly what he was saying . . . . . .?

    Wow! Slip of the tongue! Freudian slip! I’d be interested to know if Abbot was really thinking. Anyhoo— this was too funny. When I read your post and then read what a “journalist wrote I had even more laughs. So many puns. What whips you have in Aussle land.

    Yes. He sounds like a pompous ass! I don’t even want to vote anymore. Six of one and a half a dozen of the other.Sometimes it’s a toss up.

    Just about every country is sinking deeper into being run by idiots or one that is corrupted and has no scrupples.

    I remember Dan Quayle, among others,whose tongues often got away with them. During WW11 a poster was popular which stated “A slip of the lip can sink a ship!”
