Hes the troll you cant control! The dude who wants your food! The big buttmunch with his panties in a bunch coz hes kinda got a hunch that its all about lunch!

Hes Big Hawk (aka White Bread, aka Whatever, aka Labor Pimp, etc) and his strange lunch obsession has made him this sites favourite comments entity. Hey -- only a few hours to go before lunch time! Lets get in the mood with Big Hawks greatest food-related hits!

You truly excel yourself Tim. Where's lunch today.

When someone attacks Australia I'll fight, but I doubt Tim will. He'll be too busy pretending how important he is eating lunch.

... the reality is that Tim and his luncheon crowd are the real white trash of Australia ...

Be careful eating lunch now today, don't want you choking on a chicken bone do we ...

You send other people's sons and daughters to fight your wars and call anyone who doesn't agree with you a coward, a traitor or any other term of abuse you can come up with between your endless long lunches.

... he's got another long lunch to attend to today, where he and his fellow travelers can whine over another bottle of expensive wine ...

We need leadership out at the front in this great war against of civilization, not at the rear enjoying endless long lunches.

... your own club of admirers read this crap over lunch.

Just remember Tim, as you down another bottle of expensive wine - while someone's else son is on the frontline - that you are a chickenhawk and a hypocrite.

Hes also got a thing about expensive wine. Man, Im hungry already! And thirsty!

Should we even bother to mention that a necessary corollary of the tired "chickenhawk" slur is no civilian oversight of the military?

Or should we just order appetizers and laugh?

Mmmm... wine....

I can't believe Mr Big Mouth..err Hawk is still sprouting the same old lines. Does he really think that to support a war you actually have to serve on the front line yourself? that the time, I'd better get ready for my 3hr lunch.

Chickenhawk! Did ah, say, did ah hear a-someone say "chickenhawk"? Boy, y'all shoulda seen my old Pappy a-huntin' them chickenhawks back in the day.

As Ian indicates, perhaps Mr. Whatever Labor Pimp Big Hawk Whatthehellisyournameanyway prefers that only citizens who have served in the military should have oversight capacity. 'Course, that's only one step removed from giving citizenship only to those who serve in the military. Perhaps Mr. Whatthehell Blah Blah is a Robert Heinlein fan.

Oh right, like Big Hawk wouldnt give Miranda one.

I've been hoping for a few posts with Big Hair's favourite lunch dishes for the morally superior and perhaps a menu for the craven and cowardly. Nothing so far, perhaps he's busy creating new sensations and working out ways to include "lunch" in future posts.

Or maybe he's just a wanker, you be the judge.

"Does he really think that to support a war you actually have to serve on the front line yourself?"

Of course, that's why he spent Gulf War I on the deck of one of the ships he sent there...

Whoever big Hawk is,his verbal repetoire is not so plastic.

Posted by: d at September 25, 2003 at 01:50 PM

I think Big Hawk's obsession with lunch gives us a clue to his real identity ... Michael Moore!

Posted by: Evil Pundit at September 25, 2003 at 02:15 PM

I've seen a lot of things before, but I've never seen a commenter so obsessed with lunch.

He's probably just on a diet where he has to skip lunch.

Sir Lunchalot dropped in on an earlier post:

Enjoy lunch today Tim. Maybe you could go to a camping store and buy some MRE type products, some army disposal clothes and a tent, then go camp out in some building lot somewhere and pretend for a moment that you are doing what the real men in this war are doing. Somehow I doubt it as it's much more fun to go to a trendy cafe and hang out with your righteous mates and bitch about the rest of us over a long long lunch for not writing what you want us to write.

This marks the first appearance of the long long lunch.

Maybe he wanted to rename the Big Issue to the Big Salad, hence his current state of unemployment.

Posted by: unit at September 25, 2003 at 05:26 PM

Yes Big Hair, but, and this is really important - what do we eat?? Should I go for the chicken or the steak? Is red wine for lunch a bit wanky or acceptable at the right eatery?

While I'm laughing at the dupes being conned by the War Machine TM, I need to know I'm eating the right "laughing at dupes envolved in war" foods. Any help will be appreciated, kisses Big Hair.

Where exactly do you lunch, Tim. Since you're apparently there so often, surely you could post a recommendation???

(Just got back from 3 hours at Wildfire myself, so I ain't pointing no fingers this time...)

As someone who does serve somewhere near the front and actually having done a decent days work in regard to the defence of this nation, I say to this clown, Shut the F@#k up!
I would much rather read Tim, as do the rest of my war pig mates, than some left-wing pissing and moaning freak. Harsh, but fair. We rarely descend into rhetorical debate. We have found the most effective way to finish arguments with tossers is A. Walk away or B. Put your foot on their throat. Both effective, however B is MUCH more fun for me.

I'm with you, Chief bastard, You da MAN!
Pig Ignorant and Bastards, what a team!!!

Is there any Arugula? I like it with a nice vinagrette...

I'm a lowly home luncher, mostly. That is, when I'm awake in time for lunch.

Posted by: tim at September 26, 2003 at 04:10 AM

Tim Blair, a legend in his own lunchtime.

Posted by: David Gillies at September 26, 2003 at 06:04 AM

I know there's a "supersize it!" joke in here somewhere...

Posted by: Jerry at September 26, 2003 at 07:28 AM

It's perfectly clear what Big Hawk is on about - Tim and his cronies are nothing more than a self satisfied cheer squad for the rape and pillage of the planet, and the widening gap between have and have nots. Gross gourmands who get fat on other people's misery. Go choke like a bunch of pathetic magpies.
