APEC Bin Laden – Sydney’s $300 million joke needed a bloody good punchline. Thanks Chaser arrestees, you rock!!

update – check this story out and this one– the remaining members of The Chaser crew who weren’t arrested on Thursday went in today in a 3-car motorcade… made of cardboard.

Stopped. Questioned. Held. Not Charged. Released.

We don’t need the Defence Forces and Police. We just need about 140 000 Chaser trainees. That would truly be the shit. It might even solve this problem that Aussie politicians are having of trying to out-not-amused each other. Jerkovz.

Wow – Bin Laden knew he was in trouble when confronted by a riot cop, a leather cop, and a suit cop. Maybe he should have flown.

The Chaser’s War On Everything lived up to its name today – beautifully. The snipers all over Sydney must either have shitty aim or great magnification because that is one convincing-ass costume. Australia’s most participatory journos took a mini-motorcade to within about 10 metres of the hotel where Satan’s Anal Fissure (aka George Bush) is staying in Sydney. They went dressed as Canada because it seemed like a believably mini-motorcade choice to make. Perhaps also as a reference to the fact that Bin Laden is actually hiding in Canada, which everyone already knows.

They were charged and released this afternoon. Hopefully none of them will end up with the six-month jail sentences possible. Hopefully they’ll get 100 hours community service – which would mean playing 10 minutes of this footage 600 times in a public space, basically.

    t.i.n.a.: totally – well qualified call. The other three went in this afternoon with a 3 car motorcade made of cardboard. They were being spoken to last time i saw. Their ideas just pwn.
