Over in Hogwash... WW has gone a bit of track.. well that's par for the course around here.. WW did it this time.. but everyone of us has done it..

keeping a thread on subject/track is harder than...
hanging on to a greased pig
nailing jello to the wall (you other folk know what jello is by now..)
herding cats

the obvious...

... finding a needle in a haystack!

Need more time to think of some funnier ones.

getting a certain Ozzie to say sorry

Touche, Max! Can't argue with that one...

I hear you say the truth must take a beating
The flag a camouflage for your deceiving
Cause I know, (I know) I know, it's written on your soul
I know we all make mistakes

This is not a case of blurred vision, it's a case of black holes, pocket holes, soul holes

And did I hear you say
My country right or wrong


with thanks to Midnight Oil, who keep (some of) My Country thinking...
