The Flyest Mudder Rudder

Finally, a Hadd-free post! No mention of running either. If Phil can do it, so can I. For my up-over readers, the following YouTube clip won't mean much. We have an election coming up on 24 November. Yes, all Australians 18 years of age or older must decide who rules!

I enjoy writers who use words creatively. I like good poetry. Is Rap the new poetry? I wonder what Henry Kendall would think? This video by the Axis of Awesome does brilliantly what we Australians love doing – cutting tall poppies down to size – doubly so if those tall poppies are politicians.

Thanks Ewen

Funny stuff! Mr. Sheen, indeed. ;)

1996! that was the last year I lived in Australia permanently. More than ten years of John, Peter and Alexander would have been more than I could have taken. Still I miss the Australian comedians take on things.

"Did I mention I speak Asian!"

I'm not much of a rapper (really should be wrapper) and the kids always say, "Dad, listen to the words." Well, I listened to the words and thought it was clever and humorous. I'm still not a wrapper though.

The "Axis of Awesome" sounds something like the way I run!

Leave it to me to ruin your Hadd free streak. I'm not sure how I stumbled across your blog, but I found it and am encouraged to start doing the Hadd program again.

Greetings from the USA.

"wheelfalloffitis"...LOL, very clever...

i think i get carried away in the first or second k (especially if it's downhill) and i probably vague out about a bit towards the end (i.e. 2nd last k), only snapping out of it when my Garmin reminds me of my (lack) of pace!

I would agree with you regarding rap being poetry. Some of it is pretty catchy stuff.

I loved that clip Ewen. It pretty much sums up the political seen in Australia at the moment.
