If you write books, are a blogger, post on social media and tap into the latest pulse of our social and political landscape it’s easy to consider popular opinions while churning out your current content. The question is: how much are you allowing these to dictate what you write?

Our world has become very judgment-minded, politically and socially correct and is constantly trying to find the right balance as to what’s trendy, acceptable and careful not to offend. It’s become exhausting and I’ve known some who’ve resorted to keeping their opinions to themselves for fear of reprisal—delicately... Read More


Before I parade my latest idea,I was in a clothing shop. I saw this woman serving at the counter trying to eat a pair of bras. Well, it appeared that way. She was in fact severing the little plastic I.D. T- tag with her teeth. The one that is usually nowhere within cooee of the size it states on the label..."dispose of thoughtfully, this tag could choke someone silly enough to eat it." Something like that, it warns.

Thank the bra God she wasn't that hungry, women are smart and they know that if you're silly enough to just yank without thinking a little... Read More


I was in bed thinking. It's the best place to think and not be distracted, and the SAFEST. I mean how many bed 'head on' side-swiped rear-end collisions occur on our freeways? You never ever turn the news on to be confronted by a slumber sombre- voiced news reader in pyjamas with the 'appropriate grief stick- on- look' "Hello, i'm Roger briefs, A WARNING you may want to go to bed and watch this May hem. Obviously if May is finishing off a hem or repairing a hole in hubby's sex...sorry, may want to look away as the scenes are graphic knit...(clears... Read More


The sobbing children, wailing relatives of the deceased Arthur, walked slowly past the hastily prepared recently assaulted body. A greasy chip still stuck in Arthur's mouth. Stale left -over bacon residue on his face.

The mood was angry. Sombre mutterings. Curses under breath. "We'll get the mongrel who did this! The one who forced the boot down on Arthur's head...we'll get him!"

"Brethren i repeat,Arthur will be avenged." The enraged speaker stood up. "We are here today to pay our respective respects in respect or should i say,in absolute anger, at Arthur's... Read More


Don't know if you people around the globe go to many sales but in Australia they are promoted spiel wise like a politician's pre-election promise. "Vote us in and we'll knock 50% off your body's medical bills!" That means the other 50% of your body will get seen to next election? "Vote us in and we'll get 50% of you people out of work a job.The other 50% of you voters will ignore our bulldust and so therefore half of you don't deserve a job because why should we spend 100% of tax payer's money on the ad gurus promoting our outrageous offer if you're not prepared...

Just sitting listening to some 'wild boys' in a tattoo parlour in town. The one that was tattooing the Bald Eagle on my armis also a gifted cartoonist. Why a Bald Eagle? Simple. If i ever get kidnapped by American Republicans - apparently they're short of 'gang' members sometimes- they'll lift my tee-shirt sleeve up and say "this guy has good taste we'll brainwash him into thinking he can actually soar like an Eagle and let him fly home to Australia after he registers as a transient voting bird of pray...which apparently Republicans are encouraged to do?" Speaking of... Read More

L Abrupt...PRIVATE DICK. riginal.

Name's Abrupt. Short for Abruptly. Short transposition. Call me Lee Abrupt, i'm taller than my secretary sister, short Lee.

Shortly my fly buzzed. The intercom had been cut off...enter free rent-a-fly...the fly you rent when intercourse verbal with your intercom has been sheared by the office 'removalists.'

Short Lee picked up the fly...the message was brief, a strangled buzz. It was the fly. "Stop squeezing me!"

I sat staring out the window. Short Lee pulled her mini-skirt down over her knees in an anti-freeze attempt to keep warm.That's... Read More

I know Rigina, when it takes a week for legite comments to appear it is upsetting, and it is killing the site slowly. Surely there must be a better way to address the spammers and floggers. Also taking away ratings if you do not post in a period of...
