They know this is stupid, right?

Not as stupid as the 2010 Australian federal election, but a close contender:

A Turkish groom celebrated his wedding by unleashing a volley of rapid aerial shots with an AK-47. He then lost control of the rifle, killed his father, two of his aunties and wounded eight other people.

Lesson learned: celebrate the joy of being married by eating frosted cake.

We can all attempt to do the same on the evening of 21 August 2010.

  2. They like to celebrate in the same exuberant manner at sports events too.

    Thankfully, the practice has never caught on in the AFL (that would be Australian football, Princess - fyi).

  4. Argh, just realised I had split personalities on this post. Oh well at least you know who you are talking to Mum. Even if anyone else might get confused.

  5. Yeah, yeah, you say that ... but you Canberrans will say just about anything, even claiming to be able to identify codes of local football.

    Clearly you studied law, instead of economics. You know nothing of economies of scale. Lawyers have no need of such concepts.

    I made a speech once at uni with that phrase and had no idea what it meant.

    Phaw! Take that UWS.

    So, so alone.

    So, so lonely.

  15. I've just planted mother-in-law's tongue on the roofdeck. It had to be done.

  16. That's one way to get rid of annoying in-laws.

  17. Definitely no ambiguity in such a gesture Windsmoke; sets the tone of the marriage for the get-go.

    Geoff - relieved to hear it was only her tongue.

    Princess - bless Canberra, and all who were born there.

    Did you know that more Palestinians were killed from automatic gunfire in the air celebrating the Hamas "triumph" over Israel following the forced evacuation of the settlers from Gaza than in the whole of Operation Cast lead?

    No? You did not know that, you say? Perhaps that's because it's complete bullshit and I just made it up. What the hell. A lot were killed and everybody else is allowed to make up complete bullshit when it comes to this topic so I figure why not me.
