Christmas Headlines, Puns and Bad Jokes - in Bad Taste

All of these have a 2010 and Australian theme. Some are in quite bad taste......others just witty.


If not Australian, think about the context. Many are very clever. From a collection of about 50, courtesy of a column in the Australian Financial Review.

"Tis the Monsoon Season

A brief sojourn away and now it is all awash.............the monsoon is here...........TODAY!!

Wet, overcast, a breeze from the north west, heavy leaden skies to the west, deepening low pressure across the Maritime Continent [ that is metspeak for Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand etc and north Australia], cooler [ well a few degrees], and promise of more rain.

Yes.......the north west monsoon is brewing up north of Darwin and expected to deepen over the next few days.

Had heavy rain on dusk this evening............just lightning or thunder, and coming from the north west. All sure signs that a monsoonal burst is almost upon us. is tricky to get washing dry on a line, even under cover; and yes, water can be ankle deep in the gutters during rain showers. BUT, it is cooler.

That near constant cloud cover does drop the day time temperature although to temper that, the solar hot water system, delivering ultra hot water recently will not be so efficient.

And the green tree frogs are singing big time this evening too.

It is all good!!
