Comedy Gold

Tricky! The halal certification is obviously in invisible ink.

Look closely at the pic.

Can you see a halal certification logo?

Nor can I, but then I'm aged and half blind. Younger members of my immediate family couldn't find one either, on either of the labels on this excellent bottle of Jacob's Creek Shiraz I enjoyed the other day.

Yet that paragon of truth and virtue, the Halal Choices Facebook page, was active not so long ago encouraging wine drinkers to boycott Jacob's Creek wines because someone, somewhere, alleged they were halal certified.

Now, given that devout Muslims don't drink alcohol, and that there is no logo apparent on the label, that allegation seems, to put it politely, bizarre.

That same Facebook page had, however a fair head of steam up with declarations, calumny and xenophobic rants continuing unabated.

Bottom line is, when bigotry, ignorance and hate are the driving forces, reality and common sense don't stand a chance.

It does, however, have a funny side.

Peak Stupid

On my recent overland trip to Adelaide (from Toowoomba) gentle reader, my dashcam picked up a sequence of total lunacy.

I wasn't sure what to do with it. Perhaps the responsible action would have been to email it to the SA police. But then, I doubt they would have followed up. Nobody was actually harmed as far as I can tell.

I'd prefer to put it out there (on this blog - and on You Tube), and see what happens.

After all, the cretins involved managed to get away with arrant stupidity on this occasion without actually killing anyone.

Anyway, this piece of video was captured on the Princes Highway, on a wet and busy Easter Monday, on the last 5 kms of my nearly 2000 km journey.

The upside is that that this was the only ratbaggery witnessed on the whole journey. That's good.

By way of explanation ......the drivers of the small dark car and the light colored Toyota Camry were passing an object back and forward as they raced down the freeway at speeds of 100 km/hr plus.

The object was, I think, a dildo. The actual transfer occurs at about the 20sec point.

They may have been under the influence of some substance. Nobody in complete possession of their faculties would drive like this.
