Watching a cat boldly hunt down and terrorise a clove of garlic.

@j_s_n_d @michaelneale Indeed. I think its success is because it hit timeless themes in politics.

DrSprankle Thinking a ban on burkinis is going to dismantle religious oppression is like thinking a ban on suits is going to dismantle capitalism.

@michaelneale It holds up disturbingly well. But then I’m only one episode in.

“Do you speak Australian? Take our quiz.” nytimes.com/interactive/20… 10/10 for me, you losers.

@LucasJamesAU Tastes differ, alas, and I can’t stand it.

@michaelneale I re-watched Utopia recently. Yes, The Hollowmen is slightly less accessible and darker, but then so’s my own sense of humour.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

I’ve decided to cheer myself up by watching The Hollowmen. This is possibly a poor strategy. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hollo…

Three out of four. A good pass mark, that. twitter.com/JazzTwemlow/st…

@JustJimWillDo @LaTrioli That’s not the same as a dingleberry, is it?

via TweetDeck in reply to JustJimWillDo

That’s not really going to help, it is.

Maybe someone needs to design a more European-style burkini. Has anyone got Hugo Boss’ number?

I’m sure Europe seemed like a good idea at the time, but perhaps we should cross it out and start again. twitter.com/BBCDanielS/sta…

I’ve deleted my tweet about The Sweeney ‘cos Freemantle Media got it removed from YouTube. If only they’d linked to a “Buy Now” page…

@jpwarren Oh true. And now I’m crying.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

I’ve just realised that the alleged insult “haters” was invented by people too stupid to know the word “detractors”.

via TweetDeck

Wait. The Web was built by Boomers. Oh no!

@jonoabroad Hey all good, I keep doing the same myself. Or to the SoundCloud or Spreaker sites. Goddam cloud!

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad (I’ve been meaning to cross-check the notification emails for some time. I may be mistaken.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad Ah yes it does. You can also go to skank.memberful.com, which I was hoping was in the notification email somewhere? No?

Oh David, let’s not go down that rabbit-hole. But yeah, sure, why not. twitter.com/dsturnbull/sta…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Further to @TurnbullMalcolm’s comment about digital espionage, it also shows how widely classified docs are distributed to build submarines.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

That’s not to criticise the @australian. This is one hell of a scoop, and they’d have been silly not to run with it. Good work.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The @australian, or anyone, would have a hell of a task trying to verify this chain of custody. pic.twitter.com/0wC805lvOj

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stilgherrian

My comments at this stage: 1. The leak is not “Snowden-sized”. 2. Who showed them to the @australian, and why? twitter.com/Colvinius/stat…

@munin @whiteswine I thought that was probably the case, but it’s best to be sure about these things.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@munin @whiteswine So the vodka goes in before or after the coffee?

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@19bk69 While this idea certainly has merit, I suspect it involves putting on pants. And that’s just going too far.

via TweetDeck in reply to 19bk69

This is the best idea yet. @whiteswine always excellent good ideas, although some of them are terrible. twitter.com/whiteswine/sta…

Or maybe I could slam my head face-down into a big bowl of strawberry meringue.

Hmmm. It is Wednesday, though, so maybe I could reply to last week’s email.

Wed, plan, draft: Well it all seems rather pointless at this hour of the day, doesn’t it. So, um, mope around and complain about everything.

@kheitman_au The fact that you knew this thing, which I had to look up, disturbs me.

At this time I’m not sure why the time is the time that is it, but it is that time at this time.

Wednesday. It is much smaller than you remember, but that might just be a trick of the light. Wednesday.
