Chief Wiggles’ site reports the delivery of your PayPal donations to the Cawley Children Memorial Fund. Much thanks to Plunge at the Chief’s site, who rounded the final figure up to $US500, and thanks also to the many readers who sent donations to the fund by mail.

In other goodness news, Robert Corr urges Perth readers to drop by the Hyde Park Hotel tomorrow night for a concert to raise funds for Iranian earthquake victims. It’s a good cause, so I pledge a donation for every photograph e-mailed to me from the event that depicts Rob waving a “Vote Howard” sign, having a drink tipped over his head, being arrested, or enduring any other form of humiliation.

UPDATE. Rob accepts the challenge!

Making Robert do some work is humiliation enough for him. Good work on the donations Tim.

How much would a photo of me snogging his missus be worth?

This photo is fairly humiliating. It's off his web page though, so I guess it doesnt count.

How much will you donate for those things, Tim? I'll bring my camera and a Vote Howard sign...

Four photos will earn $40 for the cause, Rob!

Consider it done. I'll wave a Vote Howard sign, and have a drink tipped over my head, but I can't guarantee being arrested.

And I have been reliably informed that there is absolutely no chance that Carita will snog "that arrogant fuckwit", the Yobbo.

He looks like a young Oscar Wilde. Read in to that what you will.

Give him a break. He's doing a Good Thing.

Hey, if he's willing to pose for those photos, I applaud him. :)

You can't guarantee getting arrested? Youre not trying hard enough. Try pissing on a police car then hitting an officer. Or trowing a chair through a window. Surely you can manage that? :)

But that wouldn't be humiliating, would it?

Sam, if you get a photo of you making out with Carita it will be the background on every website for the next month, along with a sailor moon animation.
