Tony Tea

Glen or Glenda.

m0nty

He certainly did something to Sri Lanka's arses.

Big Ramifications

I know I shouldn't laugh, but this picture is ancient in internet years, yet "turn or burn" still cracks me up. It's such an ominous sounding threat that says so much in so few words. And it rhymes.

The girls themselves give me much pause for thought. Such angelic faces. With warm, genuine shit-eating grins. How old are they? 14?

So many levels to ponder.

Big Ramifications

Makes me wonder.... would security turf me from the ground if I started waving a TURN OR BURN sign? It's obvious what it means.... but only when juxtaposed with the other sign. I don't think I would have "got" it otherwise. Or even be bothered to try and figure it out.

And I'm not sure if the average cricket goer or knuckle dragger would be familiar with the picture of the two grinning girls, thereby avoiding paint-by-numbers outrage.


Cameron

Why is the sri lankan fan stupid tony? Enlighten us, we're all dying (of aids) to know.

Carrot

I've only known a few Sri Lankans in my time, but they've all shared once thing in common: an uncanny level of eloquence. I'm sure it's not true for all of them, but it seems that it's something their politicians and lawyers also share! The quotes in that article are of the type to make you sit back and say "oh. Alright then! Seeing as you've put it like that, everything's fine!" Can't imagine we'd produce the same stuff if the boot were on the other foot.

Cameron

No doubt Tony T is plugged into "...Sri Lankan social media..".

philsgone

what doe sit accurately translate to?

m0nty

Cameron: presumably that sledge was in the "it will only fire him up" category, given what happened on the pitch.

Tony Tea

Cameron just booked a ticket to Colombo. He's going to sit in the stands holding a sign "Sanga is a poof."

Big Ramifications

Yeah, strange question Cameron.

Big Ramifications

It would only ever be an in-joke shared between the top tier Aussie cricketers, but I really hope Glen Maxwell's new nickname becomes BIG FAG.

Because "big fag" sounds funny.

Pro tip: Let's say you wanna call your buddy a "fag" or a "poof". If you add the adjective "big" it makes it funnier. "Where did ya get that shirt ya big poof?"


// not coz you're a homophobe, just coz good buddies often take the piss and abuse each other for the lulz

Big Ramifications

Yeah, strange question Cameron.

TEST

A Brave New Fag

What's amazing is that with all the new age sensitivity to offense these days that fag is still taken as a slur whereas everyone knows faggotry is awesome! I mean, isn't it?

I took the dark aryan fan's poster as being high praise for Big Fag's status. It's as high a metric in cultural approbation one can achieve.

Wait, wahat? You reckon he was abusing Big Fag for being a fag? What, are you a fag?!

Hard Hat Fag

Goddamned Lankans are all communists!

A Brave New Fag

Here's an album review for you, Tones, written by a complete fag. Wait, I mean, written by THE complete fag. And White Nationalist too.

Such a dichotomy of interests it must be a throw up to work out which to defend and which to abhor.

(And I mean, James J. O'Meara is THE complete fag. Championed by Greg Johnson, of Bronie promoting infamy - he too is a WN, and fag.)

Beam me up, Scotty.

Big Ramifications

Spot on, ABNF. You stole my theory.

If homosexuality is so great and so.... NORMAL.... then how come the vernacular terms are still a slur? Even calling someone a homo is a slur.

Ya can't have it both ways, homos.

Tony Tea

Oh, come on. Sheer sophistry.

A Brave New Fag

Fags write some real hetero-normative White privileged songs. They are a disgrace. And misogynists.

Big Ramifications

I don't even know what sophistry means. This makes me anxious. I'm out of here....

Tony Tea

Sophistry is a good friend of Straw Man.

Felix Bumgardener

Felix Baumgartner is a FAG!!!!

A man would have done that WITHOUT a pressure suit, nor oxygen!

A Brave New Strawman

Let alone abandon a thread, leaving your strawman to burn.

One you introduced me to, Tones, and one I introduced my boy to, by way of forewarning the ways of homo-sexuality.

Check..Mate.

Your move next :-)

m0nty

I prefer Sophie's Choice. Much better movie, as the other one is like watching grass grow.

A Brave New Strawman

For m0nt:

Cerraste la puerta.

No puedo encontrar.

Que Onda Guero?

A Brave New Strawman

Your move next :-)

Rammers, do you have one of those gifs or widgets or emoticons or whatever they are for "shit eating grin" I could insert after one of my great ripostes, like that?

A Brave New World

A follow up today Ireland's John Mooney hopes attack will not deter others from talking about mental health

You can't get much lower than Robson Sharuko.

A Brave New World

Ha, get this: the reporter, Robson Sharuko, "was banned for life by the Zimbabwe Football Association in 2012 for his role in a match fixing scandal that saw the national football team lose matches in Asia." (Source)

A Brave New World

“In relation to the story that has appeared in today’s Zimbabwe Herald, it would be easy to dismiss it as a childish diatribe if it wasn’t for the vicious personal attack on John which cannot pass without comment, and possible action.

“John represents his country with honour, distinction and integrity. That he does in the face of personal challenges about which he has spoken openly and movingly demonstrates incredible hard work and great courage.

“We understand, as does John, that public figures may occasionally be subject to negative comment, but in mocking John in such a contemptuous fashion, and using his personal difficulties as a mere punchline, the Zimbabwe Herald has demonstrated breath-taking crassness and a gross error of editorial judgement.

“We have made contact with ICC to understand what remedies might be available to us.”

Well said. I hope Robson Sharuko gets to donate his match fixing winnings to Mooney by way of a defamation suit.

m0nty

Sharukonado.

Sharkeisha.
