One ball only

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

 It is rare that I would comment on or add anything to my good friend and Fog of Chaos colleague von Gress’ articles. However, we did get some spirited responses to Bridge Kwai, including improvements of the lyrics. I picked up the least offensive and practically politically correct one:

 Swan has only got one ball,

Gillard has two but very small,

Shorten is somewhat sim’lar,

But poor Rudd has no balls at all.

It seems that neither the national socialists, nor the international socialists can escape the people’s scorn. Some suggested there is only one ball amongst the whole sorry lot, but could not agree who possessed it. Wong? At least we can still whistle.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
