THE AUSSIE Street is certain

THE AUSSIE Street is certain to react angrily after this cultural slur:

Actor Tim Robbins pleaded with listeners at the National Press Club yesterday to "defy the intimidation that is visited upon us daily in the name of national security and warped notions of patriotism" after calling some members of the press "Aussie gossip rags" and "talk-radio patriots."

Holy Imam Barry will place a Foster's Fatwa on Robbins tomorrow, with these words of Australian scripture: "You're dead, mate."
