I have been very well behaved this evening.

So @jturner_ibrs has gone feral on the mic.

@ruth_parslow @dobes To stop Marr from talking? I don’t know there’s enough ammunition in Christendom for that.

@mpesce And after the ratings, the cold cuts.

@dobes Look, I can put every round into the body of a man-sized target at this range.

@vealmince You would think that, yes. Particularly after last year’s little adventures in data disclosure.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

@vealmince Yeah that would also do it. My dark, dark sense of humour is the only way I can cope with even knowing about those places.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

@vealmince Yes, they do. Poor possums confuse concentration camps with death camps, but I can understand why. The latter get all the press.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

@wolfcat I am the supposition of all wisdom.

via TweetDeck in reply to wolfcat

@wolfcat I suspect that’s true, but I have no facts to back it up, so I didn’t mention it. Call me old-fashioned.

via TweetDeck in reply to wolfcat

@vealmince I did leave out my original opener, “When they’re not shipping children to third-world concentration camps, they send email.”

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

@vealmince Was I being too nice to the majestic Department of Immigration and Border Protection, do you think?
