first there is kerry nettle in a t-shirt that is seriously making me re-consider the "it's all about my vagina" t that sublime and i are going to bring to the streets of melbourne.

i don't have a picture of kerry in said t-shirt but here she is

and the text reads:

"Mr Abbott, Get your rosaries
off my ovaries"

then there is dear amanda

who stumbled twice over the pronunciation of "independent" this morning on 774 in an interview with john faine, and then when he jested whether there would be a new regime of glasnost and perestroika within her department, she managed to get glasnost out but couldn't say perestroika.

it went something like this:

"per- per- peretrnanana... i'm tongue-tied this morning i can't say it"

i am serious. if anyone else heard this, please confirm.

and finally we have that icon of everything, and now real-estate, ms hanson. or would she be miss? or mrs? i'd like to know. seriously.

she has morphed from this

stately and elegant politician

to this


self-deprecating and elegant danseuse

to this

professional and elegant real estate agent.
she's working with her son. sweet.

in between there were other stages and looks

ah yes, miss pantsdown. remember her?

classic moments

I think Amanda actually said "perineum".

OK, I'll go back to work now....

I'd rather have tony abbot on a tshirt than on my face or something similar.

ewww. I just grossed myself out.

Bring back Pauline Pantsdown! Where has she gone?
My friend was in NZ during the whole Dancing debacle, and refused to believe me when I told him about Pauline. He still thinks I'm making it up.

MelbourneGirl said...

i can't see the pictures!!! what were they of?

do i want to know?

elaine said...

MelbourneGirl said...

oh it worked that time. before i got her post but no pics, just that little box with the red cross.

i was thinking it would be something like a body part or similar.

but yes, fairly ewww.

thanks LC. have replied.

sherriff, do you mean it should have been womb? not sure i get you. i suppose there's no religiously symbolic item that rhymes with womb, or body, or tummy.

i'm sure she knows it's more about women's rights to choose, but t-shirts have to be catchy. if they have writing on them. otherwise they can just be green, or pink, or blue.

sheriff of nothing said...

Yeah I agree they have to be catchy and I suppose that is all she could find to rhyme with as you said.
