#ATOZCHALLENGE: G IS FOR THE GAMES
i ABSOLUTELY LOVED this show. the way one longs for the Olympics again after the third year of bowling repeats. but is Australian humor the same as British humor? or is there a distinction? we're about to find out. i mean i'll get to that later.
JOHN CLARKE IS A BEAST. the true Australian. Australian through and through. the man. the old man. the island general. tops in the field. not a master of satire but a master of snark. he is the greatest living Australian after Paul Hogan. but see, that's the thing. i never got into Crocodile Dundee in the '80s, that whole thing confused me. so Cajun Clarke is all i know. he's the greatest thing since (in order of how i experienced as a boy) my first best friend Brent, the boomerang, Neighbours, the Australian Open, Cheeky Minx, and Barbie dolls.

organization requires stern leadership that will get the thing done on time as planned. and blame it on the Australian deep state if it doesn't. at the end of it you will see just how insane putting on a Games is, how it cripples a city, and how no one understands. no one understands all these crazy exercises that require weird equipment and have made-up rules. cos the Games themselves are insane. the Greeks drank a LOT of nectar.
CLICK HERE FOR MATHS. WE SHOULD ALL ADOPT THE METRIC SYSTEM. METRIC IS A GOOD BAND
i always admired how the track underlooked the office.

CLICK HERE AND THIS IS NOT RACIST
CLICK HERE AND THIS DOES ADDRESS RACE, HOLLYWOOD, AND I THINK IT'S A PRESCIENT SWIPE AT MILLENNIALS
and of course the last image i remember before we had to say goodbye (until the next four years) was someone wearing the Australian flag as a onesie. or diaper or something. that one came from the advertising department.
i won't get into the whole plagiarism thing with Twenty Twelve cos i don't want to start another war between Britain and Australia. i know it's hard to admit but you must let them have this win, UK, they earned it.
DO I NEED TO PULL OUT THE BIT OF FRY & LAURIE AGAIN? OKAY, HERE
now that's a Freezeframe
and for Golf. Rickie Fowler? i mean, i guess. oh and special mention to Goosebumps and KATHARINE ISABELLE again. she blasted Robert De Niro himself one time at their film set. she wasn't gonna take shit from De Niro just cos he was a legend and she was an ingenue. that takes spunk, kid!
