Let us prey…

With just two brilliant words, Brian Anthony @killmebilly has won this week’s coveted Tweet of the Week award.

Our judges were in thrall of his short, sharp and cruelly accurate response to another twitterer, Epicfail @chocpudd who had posted: “Hillsong have taken over the old Spotlight building in Hobart. Why on earth would they need all that space?

A wonderful contribution in a week in which Sikh Volunteers Australia and other worthy charity groups fanned out over the nation to help flood victims while thousands of Hillsong worshippers sat in their homes listening to their overpriced multi-CD collection, Brian Houston’s Greatest Sermons.

The memes keep flowing – along with bloated rivers all over eastern Australia – taking the absolute mickey out of Smoko Morrison. For the latest in what The Bug calls the “hey, cunt, you’re looking at the wrong map!” series, we thank Politic@l Spinner @LesStonehouse for this fine example.

As cities and towns such as Lismore and Woodburn and many, many others decide if they’ll ever recover, the federal government’s multi-billion dollar disaster fund came in for much criticism. DavidHuett @DavidHuett summed up things pretty well.

Bee 5th Estate Citizen Journo had a dig at Bridget McKenzie who more or less said the fund needed to be kept for the one-in-10,000-year flood or fire events that are due in a few years time and then again a decade from now.

Tee @tee_asz brought into the argument another large amount of funds sitting in federal government hands for a very crucial purpose; buying an election win.

Almost offensively, the Clean Up Australia weekend coincided with the exact moment tens of thousands of Australians were tipping their entire household contents onto the footpath and our judges liked this offering from Kailas Wild @kailaswild…

Peter Baker @_PB_photography reflected on this pathetic photo-op from the current member for Kooyong. Other photos of this incident showed the current Australian Treasurer also with an empty bag and pretending to pick up some rubbish that clearly wasn’t there on a fairly nice-looking piece of lawn.

Coming at the current member for Kooyong and the current Australian Treasurer from a different angle was Dead Parrot Society @MyFirstCousin…

Would our current Prime Minister try to milk the tragic early death of Shane Warne for his own pathetic personal advantage? Cindy @CindySailor2 put us all straight fairly quickly…

.. while Kyle Jacob ‘Bababooie’ de Boer @Bababoie42 finishes this post with a final observation on Australia’s current Prime Minister.
