G'day you mob. It's been a while between drinks here at shutupandreadthis HQ, with 2019 ending in such a tumult of fire and fuckwittery that it didn't feel right to run with the annual political wrap-up making fun of the cabal of cruel and unusual monsters in Canberra.

First Gonski was defunded, Then paid parental leave, Health was soon to discover, The cut it … Continue reading My Country, His Team
Once lived a boy named Daniel MacBride, And he found it funny to pass wind inside. “Oh Daniel, that’s filthy,” his teacher would chide. “Why can you not take your gases outside?” At home, his parents had tried and had tried, But he would not listen, young Daniel MacBride. “I like it, it’s funny” he … Continue reading Daniel MacBride and His Noisy Backside
