Stilgherrian Live, The Blue Edition

Cnut of the Week graphic

It’s less than three hours until tonight’s edition of Stilgherrian Live (9.30pm Thursdays Sydney time), so we’d better get some nominations together for “Cnut of the Week”.

It’s the same rules as usual. We’re after people (or abstract forces of nature, or organisations or whatever) who’ve been futilely trying to hold back the tide of change.

My first nomination will be Starbucks for leaving taps running all day — ignoring the change to more environmentally-friendly methods and, incidentally, practising a weird kind of Seattle-based neocolonialism by thinking their own “global policy” is more important than the local laws where they operate.

Who do you nominate, and why?

It’s also “The Blue Edition”, mostly in support of Blue Day 2008, but perhaps we’ll show some blue movies too. Watch and see.

  1. I’ve got a bevvy for you–

    The 2 US presidential and 2 vice presidential campaigns for saying they’re FOR equal rights for same-sex couples but AGAINST re-defining marriage as anything else but a union between a man and a woman. (Or as Tina Fey says, “a union between two unwilling teenagers”…)

    Throw in Ruddy & the Libs whilst you’re at it.

  2. Fred Nile on Henson and David Marr in Christian Today: “I congratulate his main defender, David Marr, for his consistency, because as patron of the indecent Homosexual Mardi Gras he is not offended by near-naked teenagers and topless lesbians parading through the streets of Sydney. Obviously he would not be offended by Bill Henson’s photographs which are really child pornography.”

    Homosexuals not offended by child pornography? You gotta get some Nile in there tonight Stil.
