Balmain for Refugees -- sounds like a fair swap -- is organising a trivia night, to be hosted by “the wonderfully witty Jonathan Biggins”.

It’s at Leichhardt Town Hall on Friday 28 November. A clever right-winger -- say, like trivia maven Tony the Teacher -- could sweep the floor with those mooks, so turn up and win all the lefty prizes. Of course, it’s possible that the questions will be loaded to suit the biases of the hardcore anti-Howard, anti-Bush, anti-anti-anti crowd ...

Whose US presidency is funded by Saudi oil in which Iraqi babies have been drowned?
Palestine is illegally occupied by what race of blood-drinking Shylocks?
Australia is modelled on which mid-20th century European regime? (Hint: whitegoods.)
Who the hell says Jonathan Biggins is wonderfully witty? I mean, what the fuck?

Maybe that last question won’t appear. Who knows? An agent may be deployed to find out.

Jonathan Biggins appeared in one of the funniest stage shows ever..."Livin in the 70's"....produced in 1989.

Am I supposed to know who Jonathon Biggins is?

Bad omens, Tim, I had to look up maven. Belated thanks.

Jonathan Biggins is sometimes on Critical Mass. A rollocking hot-bed of right-wing deathbeastiality.

Answer 3 is the Hills Esky-Mower.

"White goods"?

Hey, where's Amos?

speaking of the "anti-anti-anti crowd", what's it like among anti-idiotarians these days?

Jonathan Biggins is always on Critical Mass - he hosts the damn show! And it's one of the most boring spectacles I've ever seen. "A rollocking hot-bed of right-wing deathbeastiality?" I wish!
He also writes a regular column for the Good Weekend magazine (a Fairfax Saturday publication) which is sometimes witty.

I've only seen it twice, so it's sometimes to me. The rest was sarcasm.
