What’s the worst thing you’ve seen a diplomat doing?

By johnboy 6 January 2009 66

The ACT has a large diplomatic corp. To some extent they’re beyond the law.

Most of course do not abuse the privilege, but there are bad eggs everywhere.

So, dear readers, what’s the worst thing you’ve encountered a diplomat doing in Canberra?

(If you haven’t actually seen it yourself make sure you clearly describe your sources).

And there’s always good old trial by media if they try to get away with anything…

Once I was doing ‘Limbo’ with a few friends. I was quite good at it, but one of my mates, Matt, wasn’t as good.
We decided to give him some support by cheering when it was his go.
“DIP LOW, MATT!” we would yell.

btw, the original version of that joke goes for much longer than that. Aristocrats are much more offensive than diplomats.

A joke based on The Aristocrats
A family with a pet dog walk into the office of an entertainment agent. The father says “We’ve got an act for you”. The agent says “We don’t take any family acts”. But the father insists of showing him, and the agent finally agrees.

The father beats up the agent, while the kids start drawing on the walls. Then the mother starts buying products over the phone, using a credit card but she has no intention of paying. The dog takes a dump on the carpet, and then the kids start using that mess to smear on the agents table.

Finally the family go outside, and smash up the agents car.
They come back inside, and take a bow.

After the act, the agent is open-jawed. “I’ve never seen anything like that before. What do you call that act”

The father replies “The Diplomats”

Best one I saw was a son of a diplomat pay over $5000 in speed camera fines. He was a uni student and asked for a discount for being a student as well. He was not going to lose his licence even though he run up about 20 points on his provisional licence. But at least he paid them.
