THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS, PEOPLE.

And then you stop to think, “Wow, @TurnbullMalcolm is the one with a brain”, and “This is the best bit of the entire government.” Wow.

via Janetter for Mac

I know I’ve done some ill-advised things when drunk, but accidentally wiping out an entire sector of TV broadcasting wasn’t one of them.

via Janetter for Mac

You’ve got to wonder who, if anyone, @TurnbullMalcolm spoke with before knifing community TV. That’s one hell of a “thought bubble”.

via Janetter for Mac

Tonight’s @TheRoastTV is a must-watch for all community broadcasters and anyone who knows any science. youtube.com/watch?v=cug0yw…

@jpoh We live in interesting times…

Actually I see that @danger5tv’s “Diamond Girls” isn’t in the Series 1 purchase on iTunes. I must rectify this.

The rank of the AFP officer who takes responsibility for the explosives fuck-up will be an indicator of individuals’ character, I think.

via Janetter for Mac

@blahjedi @danger5tv I cannot answer this question, except to say that series 1 is on iTunes for your purchasing pleasure.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to blahjedi

It’s a good thing the AFP is overseen by a clear-headed and competent Attorney-Gene…. HAHAHAHAHAHA no I can’t do it.

joshgnosis The words ‘accidentally’, ‘AFP’, and ‘apologises’ have been together in headlines far too frequently of late.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glittertrash

I mean, who amongst us hasn’t accidentally left a bomb lying around a major international airport? It could happen to any of us.

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, I feel a bit sorry for some poor AFP dog handler who’s going to end up being burned for this. The grunts always get blamed.

via Janetter for Mac

Just so you know, 230g of plastique, under current US law, counts as “a weapon of mass destruction”. The AFP is worse than Saddam.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @skwashd I wish Apple had’ve given everyone a free copy of @danger5tv series 2 instead of that shitty U2 album. [And them the $30M, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to skwashd

So the AFP leaves a bomb in Sydney airport, and meanwhile @SBS won’t screen series 2 of @danger5tv because feelings. Go, Team Australia.

@parisba Well indeed, you deserve to be. Unless there’s a nearby demolition and they need to kill the mains for the whole street for safety.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to parisba

@Colvinius @danger5tv @SBS @woblord And the entire oeuvre of “Massive Attack” was banned too, if I recall correctly.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@parisba Yes, it means they think your building is about to be demolished, so the electricity gets cut beforehand to protect the workers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to parisba

@woblord @Colvinius @danger5tv @SBS You’d go that far? I grant you, it’s pretty special, but even so…

Exactly, @Colvinius @danger5tv @SBS @woblord, there’s always conflict somewhere in the world, and this is gloriously absurdist genre parody.
