It’s been a while, but I’ve been a little busy and, well, a little lazy.

Having been in that fair city a couple of years ago, I enjoyed this one, that I did:

OK, it’s weird. I know. I just love watching the Americans do their own peculiar form of democracy. But this is Wryday and our ABC has come to the party:

I’ve neglected my duties to the humorous side of life but, the truth is, not much funny stuff has been hitting my inbox lately. Maybe it’ll improve in the warmer months!

Couldn’t resist these visual puns though (courtesy of Milly’s facebook page).

The reason for this Wryday entry may not be immediately obvious, after all it’s a eulogy and it’s a politician. And while my liking for Malcolm Turnbull declined rapidly when he joined the ranks of the anti-Republicans, he’s certainly a much more impressive figure than his current leader.

Mind you, this speech certainly has some amusing moments, as eulogy’s are wont to do, and so I guess it takes its place worthily for that, but I found one small section particularly amusing.

The subject of Malcolm’s fine words were his recently deceased brother-in-law, Robert Hughes. At about the 10 minute mark …

‘I think he had a swipe at you’ [Looking at Tony Abbott]

Quick off the blocks, Tony replied, ‘He missed’.

Even quicker (and more effective IMHO), Malcom swathes, ‘What a loss for the nation would it have been if he’d have connected’.

It may be my imagination, fueled by my own bias, but Abbott’s look … well, maybe it was my imagination.
