Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight?

Bob Jones is a national treasure

News broke that the Prime Minister, presumably exercising a perk of office, had seemingly hurled a coffee-shop waitress to the floor, then not once but twice, and regardless of his accompanying wife’s feelings let alone those of the other patrons, their children, two sensitive pet dogs and a wheel-chaired granny, violently had his way with her. Then emerging triumphantly from under the table wearing her knickers on his head, he’d searched around for fresh victims, before launching salivating and naked into the street in a quest for fresh flesh to commit his vile corruptions on. At that point I made two predictions.

First, that within the hour, that groaning giveaway of journalistic shoal fish mediocrity would emerge, namely the appendix “gate”. Sure enough, exactly 38 minutes later, the Stuff (Fairfax) website kicked off with the first “ponygate”, the others all duly lapdogging along thereafter. My second prediction was that the expected flow of contrived outrage from middle-age women (older ladies are more sensible), perpetual offence seekers, would bear a direct co-relationship in their venom with the authors’ ugliness.

By God I scored a bullseye with that one.

Not to mention the men that were already ugly enough to be a woman with contrived outrage.  You know the ones.   Read more »

Wicked Campers showing why they’d make great National party office holders

Wicked Campers has flipped the bird at the whingers and whiners about their alleged “misogynist” messages on their campers.

They have basically told the whiners to go fly a kite.

This is the gold standard of how to reply to moral blackmailers who infest Twitter and Social Media attempting to shut down people and businesses that they don’t agree with.

Wicked Campers would like to address the public concern surrounding its use of controversial artwork on vehicles in Australia & New Zealand.

To meet the commitments made in our prior Press Release, we employed a team of highly-intelligent, socially-conscious super monkeys to closely monitor the subject matter featured on our vehicles and scream loudly when offended.

This initiative had been code-named ‘Moral Monkey Squad’ under a carefully constructed mission statement:

‘Moral Monkey Squad are dedicated to satisfying the whims and wishes of the humour-inept, self-righteous moral majority while wearing little monkey tuxedos and funny hats’    Read more »

Why does Islam hate the Jews and what is Civilisation Jihad?

Have you ever wondered why Islam hates the Jews? This video gives you the answer straight from the horse’s mouth.

Have you heard of Civilisation Jihad? The truth will shock you because of what it means for you, Joe Public, otherwise known as Infidel or Kafir to those who follow Islam.

This is what is being taught in local Islamic schools in New Zealand.

This is what is being taught inside local Mosques in New Zealand.

 

The enemy of Islamic brutality is information. Spread it far and spread it wide. Spread it like Napalm. The Information Age will be the death of Islam.

And now they come for our music

it seems you can’t go anywhere today without someone being outraged, they are now even being outraged about songs written years ago.

Apparently some song now ned to be expunged, not listened to because they are “rapey” and “misogynist”.

Since the explosion of female-centric websites, much has been made of the egregious misogyny found in hip-hop, from the criminally violent fantasies of Eminem, to the glamorised brutality of Kanye West. Many women writers have described the cognitive dissonance they experience over these songs.

More recently, the mindless chauvinism of dance hits have been called into question, generating appropriate outrage. The extraordinary douchiness of Redfoo, the “rapeyness” of Rick Ross and Blurred Lines – the list is as long as a model’s torso.

It might feel otherwise but this is not a sudden phenomenon. Just this month, music writer (and WOC) Lauretta Charlton wrote an article for NYMag simply titled Brown Sugar is a dirty song about slavery and sex and I love it.

But what of the supposed “nice guys” of music? The suburban lyricists your dad listens to? Surely these well-meaning folk with their lovely guitars and bass synths have a more sophisticated understanding of heteronormative sex and gender? I mean, they’re radio friendly! GUESS AGAIN, GANG!
