Holidays: Best Enjoyed Alive

By bloodnut - 24 August 2008 20

When Labor trimmed the pubilc service with its ‘meat axe’ earlier this year. I had little idea that this had in fact been mandated by god. Jesus is thinning the ranks himself, proven further by the fact he’s not taking the hardworking ones – only the ones on leave.

This account of pube Courtney Krause taking in sunny Georgia when the Russians struck. That’s right – Georgia. Go figure. Looking at the Contiki website apparently the tour continues through South Ossetia and then on to Hell.

Then this report today of Hayden Adcock, still not out of the woods after getting lost in a Laotian Jungle for 11 days. Truly excellent pun.

For those of you that aren’t creationists, the alternative theory is that yes – there is natural selection within the public service. Darwinism is at work even in the shallowest of pools.

Either there are larger powers at work, or are two examples confirming what we have long suspected – Public Servants will go to great and sophisticated lengths to create a convincing case to have their leave without pay extended.

What’s Your opinion?

Well, it was well-written (quite literary, actually), well-peppered with references (as links), and was about Canberra (Canberrans – APS ones – finding misfortune on holiday. What’s wrong with it?

Hmmmm. Took a few reads, Mr B Nut, and I’m still not 100% sure I’ve got the gist of the connection between the trimming, the Messianic stuff and the rationale for leave.

Maybe if you make a song out of it…

Someone of little note once said that wasting sarcasm is a sin, but thanks to blogs, screens and keyboards – all online sarcasm is wasted.

ant, I agree. I think there may be some tongues in cheeks ever so tentatively and sarcastically feeding troll(s). This assumption based solely on the fact that that regular RA readers can follow english, logic and links. I stand to be corrected.

If only this cowardly soul had been so brave and courageous as those young APS Baudilaires…

Standing uncorrected.

I’m not as well red as I thought. (Despite spending too much time out in the sun today…)

Overheard, have you been told today? Back to the Guts Thread for you. That’s atrocious.

Sorry, I’m having withdrawal symptoms after a weekend at the coast. I tried nearly a dozen bad gags on my kids, thinking at least one of them would make them laugh, but no pun in ten did.
