kudelka's mo day 1
I’ve made a belated start at participating in Movember – which basically involves growing a dodgy mo to promote sick bloke issues.

The money raised by Movember will be used to change the face of men’s health by creating awareness and funding research into prostate cancer and male depression.

I’ve shaved off my usual dodgy beard and will do my best to look like a seventies test cricketer by the end of the month. I’m dedicating my nascent beer-strainer to Pip Agnew, who finally called it a draw with prostate cancer earlier this year after giving it a damn good kicking over quite a few years. A better bloke you wouldn’t meet and he had the grace, taste and style to never grow a mo himself, so I’ll do it for him.

If you want to sling a bit of money towards a good cause, go to, enter my Rego number which is 44215 and your credit card details. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible.

If you want to make a late start yourself, go to and sign yourself up.

John Howard turns 35!

Well, 101 uses for a John Howard does anyway. Yep, over a third of the way to the magic 101, when I hope all you good people are prepared to ascend to a better place (make sure you have your papers in order – I think heaven is into offcloud processing these days).

Go have a squizz at Johnny the Reverse Cartographer.

101 Uses For a John Howard

swiss army johnnyAnnouncing a new and exciting waste of time: The John Howard Project. I will be boldly attempting to suggest in cartoon form 101 ways that our Prime Minister can keep himself amused in his (hopefully) inevitable retirement years. If anyone seems to care, I will turn them into a bestselling book just in time for Christmas.

If indifference ensues, I’ll just stop, which means without any incentive to retire, John Howard will keep on being Prime Minister for ever and ever until Menzies is nothing more than a vague and happy memory and the only beings alive in a post-nuclear-holocaust Australia will be John Howard and giant mutant cockroaches who he will probably teach to play cricket and make himself captain and we don’t want that to happen so go and have a look and post comments and be generally nice about it.
