Byron Avoids Outbreak of Blues and Roots.

🎧 New Podcast: KAMAHL! Kirsty Webeck, Craig Quartermaine, Lewis Hobba & Dan Ilic

G’day Fearmongers,

On the podcast this week, we grab an e-meter in both hands and audit the accounts of Scientology in Australia. We rip into the Government missing the vaccination target, and ask ourselves is being a tradie-cum-stripper an essential worker?

Also Gina Rinehart, Australia’s most successful climate action delayer and funder of misinformation, has released a joke book (sic). Even though a super from SkyNews Australia said she’s the author, it looks like, for all intents and purposes, a collection of memes she stole from my Dad’s email account. Look at these ‘jokes’:

If conservative memes about equality, and journalism are your bag, fine, but just in case there’s a 2nd edition, we wrote ourselves some jokes to put in the next one.

Knock Knock? Who’s there? 200? 200 who? 200 Korean Workers on 457 Visas working 84 hours a week at $16 an hour to build the Roy Hill Iron Ore Mine.

Knock knock! Who's there? Your children. "Shoot them!"

Q:How many Lang Hancocks does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: None, the light shines out of his arse.

Q: What's the difference between paying tax and climate change?
A: You can't avoid climate change

There’s only 1 week to go until our comedy festival show, that is, if no tradie-cum-strippers visit Victoria before then.



(Yes, I was just trying to figure out a way to write tradie-cum-stripper one last time)
