Scrums: media and otherwise

Cartoon by Glen Le LievreMany years ago, as we were looking at a scrum in a rugby game being played in Towoomba of all places, a friend of mine commented that it looked like the quintessentially British institution!

The other wise observation I have for you is that political think tanks on both sides of the fence don’t do very well with cartoons because their cartoonists are so often too crudely didactic to be funny. New Matilda has been doing quite well however (though it’s lucky because most cartoonists I would imagine are left of centre.).  And I certainly liked this cartoon.

I can’t think of any good cartoons from the right leaning think tanks, though I’d be pleased to be proven wrong, and of course the comment facility allows you to post images.

Rugby Union has been unfairly impugned!

Though I suppose the joke wouldn’t work without a real scrum; some ‘roided up lame-o with shoulder pads, daintily backheeling the footy to a man sniffing his arse might not capture the essence of it.

Sounds like Matthew Johns may have been unfairly impugned: http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,25486564-952,00.html

Quite. Imagine being impugned by serial airhead Luvvie Catharine Lumby for being “unethical”

She fumes in today’s Oz. “Nobody should walk away from a sexual encounter feeling blamed, or shamed, or hurt,” Lumby said. “It was completely wrong, morally wrong, and unethical.”

Why is this incoherent bimbo feminazi constantly trotted as a reputable commentator, judge, and jury? How the fuck is she a Professor!!??

Matty Johns should sue the boiler suit off the dopey bint.
