Friday Funnies

If you are not local, you need some background for this clip. Bunnings is a huge chain hardware store with its signature large green tin buildings. It has killed off many small hardware stores.

The Karen thing began in America, I believe. The sisterhood have issues with Karen being painted badly as why shouldn't women be outspoken as men. I don't really understand the Karen thing. But in this case, the Karen person was way wrong.

This piece by comedian and radio broadcaster Sammy J is spoken to the rhythm of a famous Australian bush poem. J'adore Sammy J and no Trigger Trioli, he is sexy and slim, not a praying mantis.

  1. I hadn't seen this - though of course I was aware of that particular Karen. Still early here, but a smile (or two) before dawn is an great start to the day.
    Thanks Sammy, and thanks Andrew.

    1. Pleased you liked it EC. It is not belly laugh, just very clever.

  2. I like it but am not so sure about:
    "she wasn't quite across the law/ Because in the car park she was publicly arrested."

  3. Sexy, he ain't...slim, he is...a good-humoured send-up it is.

    I love the log cabin...that would suit me down to the ground, and to the roof!

    1. Lee, isn't the log cabin good. I can visualise you in one, sans beard.

    2. Actually, I've never looked like a male, Andrew...beard or no beard; nor have I ever been mistaken as one. And I've never had a beard.

      I used to have a lovely Akubra once, though...and loved wearing it. :)

  4. I am also a little surprised why women are considered taboo if they speak frankly like what men usually say. It also happened in my country. I thought it only happened in my country but in yours too.

    1. Himawan, it is such a complicated area in our lives. It is said we don't like women when they speak like men do. Perhaps what is really happening is we don't much like what men say and women should not lower themselves to male standards.

  5. I know at least one 'Karen'... I avoid her like the plague (as do most others).

  6. It's great but I had a hard time focusing on the poem, my attention was grabbed by the cabin and all the old knick-knacks.

    1. River, yes a bit of effort went into the clip.

  7. Put together well.
    Karen, well she made a few videos, but you would know that - something wrong with her in my book.

    1. Margaret, I just can't get past her aggression and rudeness to the Bunnings staff. They shouldn't have to put up with such behaviour in their workplace.

  8. Will we look back and think, what a weird year? Cute and funny thanks

    1. Padre, not a drop of beer passed his lips. It was a prop like everything else. Just have the one drink mind, not like me.
