Crying for Saddam on the front page of the CT

johnboy 7 November 2006 25

Well Done Canberra Times!

Not only have you done away with the local news section of your website. Not only have you filled up the paltry news page with stories about monkeys.

But you’ve also inflicted more Guardian Independent drivel on us courtesy of the dishonest and conflicted Robert Fisk (the man who declared that US forces must be lost because they couldn’t possibly be in Baghdad airport so quickly during the invasion).

Yes, terrible that Saddam’s going to swing. Bloody awful. Lucky nothing at all of any note happened in Canberra yesterday.

Incidentally, fans of Fisk can get his stuff online long before the CT has it on their doorstep.

I think they should lock Saddam in a small air tight room and then pump in a bit of his favourite nerve gas.

I suspect his invite may have been lost in the mail…

Stanhope seems to have caught on to the save Sadam bandwagon,21985,20722364-5005961,00.html

Pity he doesn’t comment on what he did at the water summit yesterday or wasn’t he invited?

I think I would have preferred my arm to bitten

A cow once stood on my foot and broke my big toe.

it would have been hilarious except it hurt so much. I was trying push this cow off me but couldn’t move it so I started punching it in the stomach/ side but it was like punching a big hard balloon.

Finally the cow must have decided it had stood in the one spot for long enough and moved whilst I collapsed in a heap with a mashed toe!

Cow 1, Thumper nil.

A horse bit me on the arm once, drawing blood. I lost my temper and punched it in the face. We reached an understanding after that. I still like horses – just not that one.

No thanks. I wouldn’t get close enough to a horse to get bitten!

Actually, I don’t hate them, they just scare the willies out of me.

I’d rather pick up a death adder

Dear Lord, may Bush be allergic to Mogadon.

Personally I think the rules for heads of state should be quite different, and far harsher than for their citizens.

Let the fear of the noose keep them awake at night I say.

Howard, Downer appear quite happy with the punishment dictated for Saddam. Words to the effect that other countries have diferent standards to us.

Remember that you turkeys when Indonesia trots out the Bali 9 to the firing squad! You won’t have a leg to stand on, you hypocritical @%*&*&!
