EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘Toothbrushes
Last Updated 11th June ’13
SmilingToothbrushes!!!

(Submitted by Dawn S.)

The kids filed into class Monday morning.  They were all very excited.

Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on salesmanship.

Little Sally led off.  “I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30″ she said proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”  “Very good”, said the teacher.

Little Debbie was next. “I sold magazines” she said, “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”   “Very good, Debbie”, said the teacher.

Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath.  Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk.  “$2,467″, he said.

“$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”

Toothbrushes”, said Little Johnny.

“Toothbrushes”, echoed the teacher, “How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”

“I found the busiest corner in town”, said Little Johnny, “I set up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.”

They all said the same thing, “Hey, this tastes like dog poop!”

Then I would say, “It is dog poop, you wanna buy a toothbrush?”

I used the Juliar Gillard(Oz Prime Minister) method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you it’s free, and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.”

Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment. Bless his heart.

EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘The Promised Land’
Last Updated 8th May ’13
SmilingThe Promised Land!!!

(Submitted by Colin S.)

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel …

“Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Whitlam said to the people of Australia …

Put down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land.”

Today, Gillard has ….

Stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, put camels in plain packaging, and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the carbon tax, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, and retirement funds, I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English, and I was connected to a call centre in Pakistan .

I told them I was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck …..

EYE-BALL JokeZone – Nelson at Trafalgar 2013!!!

EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘Nelson at Trafalgar 2013′
Last Updated 4th May ’13
SmilingNelson at Trafalgar 2013!!!

(Submitted by Roland A.)

Nelson: “Order the signal, Hardy.”

Hardy: “Aye, aye sir.”

Nelson: “Hold on, this isn’t what I dictated to Flags. What’s the meaning of this?”

Hardy: “Sorry sir?”

Nelson (reading aloud): ” … England expects every person to do his or her duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious persuasion or disability.’ – What gobbledygook is this for God’s sake?”

Hardy: “Admiralty policy, I’m afraid, sir. We’re an equal opportunities employer now. We had the devil’s own job getting “England” past the censors, lest it be considered racist.”

Nelson: “Gadzooks, Hardy. Hand me my pipe and tobacco.”

Hardy: “Sorry sir. All naval vessels have now been designated smoke-free working environments.”

Nelson: “In that case, break open the rum ration. Let us splice the main brace to steel the men before battle.”

Hardy: “The rum ration has been abolished, Admiral. Its part of the Government’s policy on binge drinking.”

Nelson: “Good heavens, Hardy. I suppose we’d better get on with it full speed ahead.”

Hardy: “I think you’ll find that there’s a 4 knot speed limit in this stretch of water.”

Nelson: “Damn it man! We are on the eve of the greatest sea battle in history. We must advance with all dispatch. Report from the crow’s nest, please.”

Hardy: “That won’t be possible, sir.”

Nelson: “What?”

Hardy: “Health and Safety have closed the crow’s nest, sir. No harness; and they said that rope ladders don’t meet regulations. They won’t let anyone up there until proper scaffolding can be erected.”

Nelson: “Then get me the ship’s carpenter without delay, Hardy.”

Hardy: “He’s busy knocking up a wheelchair access to the foredeck Admiral.”

Nelson: “Wheelchair access? I’ve never heard anything so absurd.”

Hardy: “Health and safety again, sir. We have to provide a barrier-free environment for the differently abled.”

Nelson: “Differently abled? I’ve only one arm and one eye and I refuse even to hear mention of the word. I didn’t rise to the rank of admiral by playing the disability card.”

Hardy: “Actually, sir, you did. The Royal Navy is under-represented in the areas of visual impairment and limb deficiency.”

Nelson: “Whatever next? Give me full sail. The salt spray beckons.”

Hardy: “A couple of problems there too, sir. Health and safety won’t let the crew up the rigging without hard hats. And they don’t want anyone breathing in too much salt – haven’t you seen the adverts?”

Nelson: “I’ve never heard such infamy. Break out the cannon and tell the men to stand by to engage the enemy.”

Hardy: “The men are a bit worried about shooting at anyone, Admiral.”

Nelson: “What? This is mutiny!”

Hardy: “It’s not that, sir. It’s just that they’re afraid of being charged with murder if they actually kill anyone. There are a couple of legal-aid lawyers on board, watching everyone like hawks.”

Nelson: “Then how are we to sink the Frenchies and the Spanish?”

Hardy: “Actually, sir, we’re not.”

Nelson: “We’re not?”

Hardy: “No, sir.. The French and the Spanish are our European partners now. According to the Common Fisheries Policy, we shouldn’t even be in this stretch of water. We could get hit with a claim for compensation.”

Nelson: “But you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.”

Hardy: “I wouldn’t let the ship’s diversity coordinator hear you saying that sir. You’ll be up on disciplinary report.”

Nelson: “You must consider every man an enemy, who speaks ill of your King.”

Hardy: “Not any more, sir. We must be inclusive in this multicultural age. Now put on your Kevlar vest; it’s the rules. It could save your life”

Nelson: “Don’t tell me – Health and Safety. Whatever happened to rum, sodomy and the lash?”

Hardy: As I explained, sir, rum is off the menu! And there’s a ban on corporal punishment.”

Nelson: “What about sodomy?”

Hardy: “I believe that is now legal, sir.”

Nelson: “In that case………………. Kiss me, Hardy.”

EYE-BALL JokeZone – Julia at the Pearly Gates – Heaven or Hell!!!

The-EYE-BALL-JokeZone
EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘Julia at the Bank':
Last Updated 1st May ’13
SmilingJulia at the Pearly Gates – Heaven or Hell!!!

(Submitted by Adian B.)

While on her morning ride on her broomstick, Prime Minister Julia Gillard falls off, has a heart attack and dies because the ‘accident and emergency’ dept at her nearest hospital is too understaffed to treat her in time.

So her soul arrives in Heaven and she is met by Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. ‘Welcome to Heaven,’ says Saint Peter, ‘Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a Socialist around these parts, so we’re not sure what to do with you.’

‘No problem, just let me in; I’m a good Christian; I’m a believer,’ says the PM.

‘I’d like to just let you in, but I have orders from God. He says that since the implementation of his new HEAVEN CHOICES policy, you have to spend one day in Hell and one day in Heaven. Then you must choose where you’ll live for eternity.’

‘But I’ve already made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven,’ replies Gillard.

‘I’m sorry .. But we have our rules,’ Peter interjects. And, with that, St. Peter escorts her to a lift and she goes down, down, down ….all the way to Hell.

The doors open and she finds herself in the middle of a lush golf course.

The sun is shining in a cloudless sky. The temperature is a perfect 22°C. In the distance is a beautiful club-house. Standing in front of it are Gough Whitlam and thousands of other Socialist luminaries who had helped her out over the years — Bob Hawke, Paul Keating, etc., even Kevin Rudd – The whole of the Labor Party leaders were there (and all the socialists from other parts of the world..)

Everyone is laughing, happy, and casually but expensively dressed.

They run to greet her, to hug her (except Rudd who is still recovering from the stab wounds to his back!! ) and to reminisce about the good times they had getting rich at the expense of ‘suckers and peasants.’

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster and caviar. The Devil himself comes up to Gillard with a frosty drink, ‘Have a tequila and relax, Julia!’

‘Uh, I can’t drink anymore; I took a pledge,’ says Gillard, dejectedly.

‘This is Hell, ma’am. You can drink and eat all you want and not worry and it just gets better from there!’

Gillard takes the drink and finds herself liking the Devil, who she thinks is a really very friendly bloke who tells funny jokes like herself and pulls hilarious nasty pranks, kind of like the ones the Labor Party pulled at the last election with their master strokes on Education, Immigration, National Broadband Network, Petrol prices, Carbon Tax, Mining Tax, Budget Surpluses, Solar schemes, National Broadband, Health Rebate, and Tough on Crime promises.

They are having such a great  time that, before she realises it, it’s time to go. Everyone gives her a big hug (except Rudd!) and waves as she steps into the lift and heads upward.

When the lift door reopen, she is in Heaven again and Saint Peter is waiting for her. ‘Now it’s time to visit Heaven,’ the old man says, opening the gate.

So for 24 hours Gillard is made to hang out with a bunch of honest, good-natured people who enjoy each other’s company, talk about things other than money and treat each other decently. Not a nasty prank or short-arse joke among them. No fancy country clubs here and, while the food tastes great, it’s not caviar or lobster. And these people are all poor. She doesn’t see anybody she knows and she isn’t even treated like someone special!

‘Whoa,’ she says uncomfortably to herself. ‘Gough Whitlam never prepared me for this!’

The day done, Saint Peter returns and says, ‘Well, you’ve spent a day in Hell and a day in Heaven. Now choose where you want to live for Eternity.’

With the ‘Deal or No Deal’ theme playing softly in the background, Gillard reflects for a minute  … Then answers:

‘Well, I would never have thought I’d say this — I mean, Heaven has been delightful and all — but I really think I belong in Hell with my friends.’

So Saint Peter escorts her to the lift and down she goes, down, down, all the way to Hell.

The doors of the lift open and she is in the middle of a barren scorched earth covered with garbage and toxic industrial wasteland, looking a bit like the eroded, rabbit and fox affected Australian outback, but worse and more desolate.

She is horrified to see all of her friends, dressed in rags and chained together, picking up the roadside rubbish and putting it into black plastic bags. They are groaning and moaning in pain, faces and hands black with grime.

The Devil comes over to Gillard and puts an arm around her shoulder.’ I don’t understand,’ stammers a shocked Gillard, ‘Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and a club-house and we ate lobster and caviar and drank tequila.  We lazed around and had a great time.. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and everybody looks miserable!’

The Devil looks at her, smiles slyly and purrs, ‘Yesterday we were campaigning; today you voted for us!

– Craig Thompson –
– there are no words to describe this GRUB …  –
| Author: EYE-BALL’s Harry’s Growl | 16th Oct 2012 |
The Grub of all Grubs is allowed to sit in the Australian House of Representatives every day Parliament sits.   He is a protect species – protected by a Labour Party slime that has infected our Nations Leaders with a morality that is destroying the soul of this Nation.

This peanut of a pissant – one of two that sit in the HOR’s as Independents, is named Craig Thompson, the other is Peter Slipper – two slime balls that allow this Government to remain in power.

Fair Work Australia (FWA) has disclosed that they have charged The ‘GRUB’ with some 67 charges of abuse and fraud according to documents filed with the Courts.

News report out yesterday indicate that the ‘GRUB’ is using the ‘Statute of Limitations’ that may shield himself from the Courts and the Justice he so richly deserves.

To reflect and get your head around how this Government  supported and voted against a motion bought on by the Opposition in the HOR’s earlier this year – gives a level of disgust and an aftertaste that will not go away until Gillard and her ‘jackboot’ caucus goes away.

Power corrupts – a statement of fact when it comes to summarising Gillard and her lust to cling to power.  Not only that – the continued support Thompson gives the Government whist now serving as an Independent gives real insight to the hypocrisy on display.

This Government is based on a corrupted past and its agenda from the outset has been about retaining power as opposed to serving the people of Australia.   Not one ALP MP crossed the floor to make a statement about Thompsons actions in defrauding Union funds, not one of them had courage enough to stand up and defend the integrity of the Parliament and our democracy.

If Thompson is guilty – then every ALP member is also guilty.  First and foremost in our democracy is the requirement for MP’s to vote their conscience above all else – their first allegiance is to the people they represent.  This is naive in the extreme, to think that our democracy is a true democracy is just turning a blind eye.  It’s a cry of hope more than anything – but it is futile to think it whilst the ALP’s defense of this ‘GRUB’ and the other ‘GRUB’ remains al with the purpose of retaining power – again Power corrupts …

Thompson is not a person who should be serving in our Parliament yet there he is – in full view and challenging anyone to remove him.   He retains the support of an equally corrupted PM who’s histort will surely sink her as it will Thompson.  For both these criminals to serve the high office entrusted to them is a reflection of our vetting system of chosing candidates.

The Australian Federal Police generally are responsible for misconduct in the Parliamentary arena, leaks, bribery, and inappropriate behaviour are all mandated as areas where the AFP get involved.   Where have they been in the HSU scandal and the AWU scandal?

This Government has a conflict and a vested interest in having Thompson and Slipper remain in Government.  Both go hand in hand with everyday dealings in this Government.  As the Ashby v Slipper scandal implodes the AG will be caught short when it comes to discovery of her involvement to have the ‘text transcripts’ suppressed and contained.

How can the public have any respect for politicians when this behaviour is representative and dish up day after day?

The full list of the 67 charges Thompson faces can be read using this link [PDF file format] – it runs to some 194 pages and is very thorough.

An ABC report on the filing of the charges can be read below:

Thomson case may have been filed too late


| Author: ABC | Date: 16th Oct 2012 | Link to On-Line Story. |

More than half the civil charges laid against independent MP Craig Thomson may have been initiated too late.

Fair Work Australia (FWA) has laid 62 civil charges against the former Labor MP over allegations he misspent funds on prostitutes and his 2007 election campaign while he was national secretary of the Health Services Union.

A total of 37 of the civil charges are for alleged breaches of the general duties imposed on officers of registered organisations.

But a separate Federal Court case is testing whether that type of charge should attract a two-year statute of limitations.

If that case is successful, it could provide a precedent for Mr Thomson to argue the general duties breaches he is facing are too old because they relate to allegations about his conduct five years ago.

FWA says it is in the public interest to pursue all 62 charges.

It says the maximum financial penalty that can be imposed by the court for each contravention of the general duties is $6,600.

Mr Thomson has continued to maintain he has done nothing wrong.

The Coalition has raised questions about whether Mr Thomson can afford to defend the legal action and pay any associated compensation costs if he is found guilty.

Under the constitution, any MP declared bankrupt is not allowed to continue serving in Parliament.

Senior Labor figures have already ruled out using party funds to help pay Mr Thomson’s legal fees.

But Mr Thomson has rejected suggestions he might go bankrupt and says he expects to win the case.

“I’m not raising that I’m going bankrupt, I’m not filing for bankruptcy, I’m proceeding in relation to a full defence of these matters and that’s where we’re going,” he told Sky News.

“Bankruptcy is not something we’ve looked at, thought about in any sense because we’re defending these issues.”

The Thomson case will begin in December.

Before the ALP threw Thompson out of the ALP – they had already provided in excess of $200,000 to cover his legal expenses to stave off a bankruptcy issue when he initially faced HSU fraud charges.   Had he been declared a bankrupt it would have  forced Thompson from Government.

Not only is he alleged to have defrauded HSU members to the tune of $500k – this $200k was more Union members funds used to cover his legal fees in a desperate bid for Gillard to cling to power.

This abuse of Union Members funds to protect this GRUB and the Governments numbers represents an even greater abuse of Union Members funds.   A crime to protect the crime as one could say …

The Government powerbrokers who made the choice to cover these legal costs had to have had approval from some Union heavy to do so after a request from someone in Government.  That person is now culpable in fostering a greater fraud on Union members because there will be no recovery of these funds.   It was not made as a loan, but a gifted amount to cover legal expenses.

The ABC report above indicates the time-lapse may see Thompson avoid almost half of his alleged frauds – how can justice be so slow to respond – the HSU spent almost two years investigating the original claims an that has to mitigate the statue time frame.   We wait and are forced to watch as our Government drags us over a cliff – god help us all.

It almost prompts a thought to do something drastic …

Last Weekend Bet Results:

  • 1 unit on Cowboys in NRL v Cronulla @ $2.20 win
  • 1 unit Adelaide Crows to win the AFL Minor Premiership @ $4.50. lost
  • I unit on Blues in AFL v St Kilda @ $2 lost
  • 1 unit on West Coast in AFL v Hawthorn @ $4.15 lost

A Decision Tree (for both NRL and AFL)

Each team now must win a minimum of 3 matches to win the comp. If a team finishing in top 4 loses in week one, they go through to grand final only by winning in weeks 2 and 3. If there was an easy match, (most predictable), odds would skew.  That is how markets are framed.

Manly and Storm in NRL, while Hawthorn and Sydney?? are now predicted to fight out the Grand Final. I can’t see it. I would need at least $7 on any of those to get interested.   For positions 5 to 8 I would require about $15 to get interested. The bookies percentages influence all of this, including outstanding bets. I am now interested in match play, more than eventual winner.
