Thumbs Up

HALAL SNACK PACKS (HSPs) – Meat, chips. cheese, sauce (preferably the holy trinity – garlic, chilli, barbecue), all served in a Styrofoam container. Yum.

A RESULT – At the time of print, a hung parliament is looking less likely, but it’s still a distinct possibility, and no one likes a hung parliament.

SNOW – There have been a few big dumps in our Aussie alpine areas and we can’t wait to dust off the Telemark skis and get down there.

THE CITY2SURF – We call it the ‘unofficial end of winter’. It’s been a bloody cold one, so this year we’re really hoping that this title holds true.

BATCHO EL BARBERO – Our mate Stacy Batchelor cuts homeless people’s hair out of the goodness of his heart. You’re a bloody legend Batcho!

Thumbs Down

DRAWN OUT ELECTION – It’s usually all over in less than a day, but it took Bill Shorten more than a week to eventually concede defeat.

SPORT – Apart from the Swans, pretty much every team or player we support has struggled to win anything this year.

BREXIT – We’re still coming to terms with the fact that the UK is leaving Europe. There’s probably no need to renew that British passport now.

AMERICA AND GUNS – Another month, another spate of shootings in the land of the free, and yet they still won’t tighten their gun laws. Morons.

EUROPEAN POSERS – We’ve had just about enough of people posting pics of their European summer vacations on social media. Quit it you posers!
