Mr. Richard Prosser is a knave and a fool

Poor Mr. Richard Prosser has been run over by the steamroller of Political Correctness gone May-ad in New Zild. Of course he now accepts that saying all males between 19 and 35 who are Muslim or look Muslim or come from countries that are Muslim should not be allowed to fly on Western Airlines, lacked balance.
Sadly this brave culture warrior has been forced to apologise for upsetting people. ON NATIONAL RADIO!!
Actually, what you have here is the boy in the corner at school who has been yelling "Bugger, Bum, Shit" all afternoon having his pathetic rationalisations put through a wood chipper machine while he watches. Sadly he will not resign just learn to modulate his dog whistles, a bit.
Note that most of this comes down to Mr. Prosser not being able to take his Swiss Army knife onto airplanes no more.
Full story here  PSA: Not for reading on an empty stomach.

In a column for Investigate magazine

There's the warning klaxon right there.

The New Zealand First MP wrote that he won't stand by while New Zealanders' freedoms are denigrated by "a sorry pack of misogynist troglodytes from Wogistan".

I understand the sequence of events to go something like this:

1. Cheney regime introduces Heimat Security Agency and enforces Security Theatre measures on US airlines.

2. US airlines lobby IATA to ensure that other western countries impose the same Security Theatre measures upon their own citizens and airlines, so that US airlines aren't handicapped and all go bankrupt.

3. Prosser's swiss army knife is confiscated.

4. Blame misogynist troglodytes from Wogistan for TAKING AWAY HIS FREEDOMS.

Hmmm. I'm thinking that Catholics shouldn't be allowed around children because they're either child molesters or aiding in cover-ups for child molesters, by that logic.

When do travelers get to stop being molested by TSA monkees, btw? Does it make sense for that to go on endlessly?

That sounds like a serious question, wiley, so we must direct you to mikey's blog. This is the Department of Jeering and Armpit Farty Noises.

I await the incarcerations after the connecting flights.

I would like to thank New Zealand for doing the experiment.

I wasn't sure before.

Hmmm.

I've heard of coke fiends, but that's ridiculous!

When I worked for a soft drinks company, in Melbourne, who I am going to call Boke Bola, we had a chap ring up to complain about getting a flat can. He gave a rambling speech about how he drank it all the time and had a can waiting beside his bed every morning. And he had friends in the CIA who would be mean to us if we didn't compensate him. So we did what we did to everyone who complained.
We said that this sometimes happens and arranged to send him a free 6-pack replacement.
He graciously accepted it.

I need to start calling all the Oregon breweries and start pretending I got a flat bottle. I doubt they'd give me free beer though.

I did get a free beer from my favorite pu when I realized they had connected an Alaskan Amber ale keg to the Lagunitas IPA tap. Evidently it had been like this all day and I was the first person to notice. It saddens me that my local beer-drinking cohort is so un-edumacated. It's almost like they're not snobs about beer or something.

Arpit farts smell even worse than armpit ones.
