Lyn Hatfield Dods – for sheer gall (she might prefer “chutzpah”) in presenting herself to the ACT public as a Greens candidate, while giving us the finger from behind the wheel of her massive gas-guzzler.

Kate Carnell – most fuckups without personal consequence in a single person’s lifetime.

Oh, and Fiona 🙂

How about Mulberry Bogan Fingers for her contribution to parent-teacher relationships, road safety, flying off the handle, use of HYPERBOLIC CAPITALS, and over reaction?

Rebecca Massey is an extraordinary (or should that be extra – ordinary) Canberra woman who has excelled in her field…

Who gives a crap? If giving them some awards makes them happy, then great. Throwing the dog a bone occasionally is a small price to pay for lack of barking.

Can I nominate Mrs Bastard, just for putting up with me.

Seems to me blatant example of stae-sanctioned discrimination to me. Men and women are treated as equals except where women are treated more equally.

The self elected ACT Minister for Blokes, Pommy Bastard, is looking for nominations for the 2011 ACT International Men’s Day slab.

The awards will be presented in three categories, drinking, car repairs and footy, and are open to nominations for men who have excelled in any game of backyard cricket or who has smeared his willy with peanut butter for the entertainment of his mates, and a dog.

“I encourage each Canberran to consider the wonderful beers got in, pushes of cars with flat batteries, and excuses for going fishing given by the blokes that they know, and to take the first step to having them recognised by nominating them for an International Men’s Day Keg.”

Nomination forms are available from ACTAB, The Tradies, most bottle shops, and Joe’s garage, online at http://www.go-ugly-early.act.gov.au/ or by contacting the ACT Office for Men by screaming incoherently down the phone “I fecking love him, he’s my best fecking mate!”

Nominations close when the bar is empty.

I would like to nominate……….Limestone Lizzy.

The reason that I have chosen her is because she is a shining example of what women should not do.
