JUNGLE MONSTER EMERGES FROM WOODLAND HABITAT

Howard defies Annan! That should please the Left, who are always urging the Prime Minister to stand firm against malicious foreign powers. After staring down Kofi, the PM then faced a local opponent:

A topless protester today tried to flash Prime Minister John Howard as he arrived at a business lunch while campaigning in Perth today.

The woman, smeared in fake blood and wearing a black scarf on her head, concealed her modesty with a large placard reading "blood of Iraqi children" until Mr Howard and his wife Janette arrived at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre.

The woman was later cornered and told media she had been camping in a forest for six weeks and wanted to shock and horrify the prime minister.

Then she was tagged and released back into the wild.

No photos of the local opponent - how dissapointing.

Don't worry, Timbo, the dogs picked up her scent and we tracked her down. Anyone for a ham sandwich?

Thank you Australia for defying all of the Lefty dumbasses (including my best friend here in Japan, who doesn't even have the justification of being an actual dumbass) and electing such a praiseworthy motherf*cker like John Howard. Anyone who gives Kofi Annan the finger should receive a lifetime appointment to whatever position he wishes.

How exactly does one "conceal" one's "modesty"?

I mean, what is this, journalism as zen koan? Kind of like "fake, but accurate"?

well said. Its almost like the lefty prayer:

"Grant us oh deity the strength to defy all foreign directives, unless it concerns the UN,

yay also, encourage equality for all and freedom of choice, except for those who may want to send thier kids to those, you know, snooty private schools,

give us our Margo as we smite the two-headed Satan, Howard and Bush and forgive us our grammatical inaccuracies"

Howard should have gone the grope - as a symbol of his compassion. The left love symbolism.

I was bummed I didn't take my digital camera with me today, I saw all six of them while they were waiting for Howard out the front of the perth exhibition centre.

I didn't realise until I heard about it on the news that they were protesting against Howard, it seemed strange that they would be protesting out the front of an IT and Telecommunication Expo.

Part of the problem with figuring out why they were there was that between the six of them, they seemed to be protesting against the war, something to do with forests and from the costume I guessed also coloured peanuts. Although I have to admit, if I was upset about coloured peanuts I'd probably blame John Howard as well.

By showing him female-type boobies?

Did Howard ask her if she was pregnant?

Given that her intention was to "shock and horrify" the PM, I'm not sure I want to see a picture of those titties. Presumably they are victims of the bra-burning revolution.

Oh my Lord, she's obviously one of the ferals from the Ludlow Forest protests.

Please don't judge all we Sandgropers by these few

That's Ludlow PINE Forest, Bruce.
