  • Bendigo Pipped to the Post by Puckapunyal

    Despite scoring three tries to their opponent’s one, the Fighting Miners were narrowly defeated by the Puckapunyal Boars in wet, raining conditions last Saturday. Lack of discipline when not in possession of the ball cost the Miners dearly as the Puckapunyal goalkicker took every chance offered to him, slotting 5/5 with four penalties and a conversion.

  • It’s a Baked Bean Pizza But Not as we Know it

    If there is a more heinous crime than serving short measures (of beer), it has to be chucking fruit on a bloody pizza. Pineapple is a prime example of when culinary creativity meets Mr. Stupid Bollocks. Coming in a close […]

  • Gobbledegeek v The Bendigo BMX Bandits

    An unnatural noise outside caught my attention where random wind-related sounds don't. Given that the missus is working away in Melbourne, I couldn't wake her to deal with it and so I had little choice but to drag myself out of bed. A sneaky peak out between the blinds revealed some low-life miscreant creeping up the driveway. Being ever so courageous, I poked my head out of the front door and politely greeted the bugger! Yes, I actually called out "hello?" My God! What was I thinking? I immediately came to my senses and attempted to rescue the awkward (for me at least) situation with some choice expletives but the little sod was obviously so confused and startled by my effeminate (particularly blonde) initial greeting, that he had long since scarpered.

  • 6 Nations Rugby 2010

    Well bugger me if Setanta aren't airing the IRB 6 Nations Championship this season! That subscription can consider itself well and truly canceled. Fortunately, ESPN is showing the Northern Hemisphere's premier rugby showcase. Unfortunately, one is required to buy a new HD set-top box and subscribe to the new HD channels which will set you back another $20 a month. Looks like the kid's Cartoon Network has been canceled.....at least for next couple of months.

  • Bendigo Paedophile Dennis Goudge Buggered

    Or more to the point, the filthy nonce will be when he's convicted and sent to play with the big boys. He's going to need rope for his soap, that's for sure! Dennis Alfred Goudge, who Bendigo Police describe as Victoria's worst child sex offender, faces 58 charges (revised from 144), including multiple counts of child rape, sexual penetration of a child under 10, sexual penetration of a child under 17 and indecent assault.

  • Bendigo Hoons Are Special…

    ...in the head! A Maiden Gully uber-hoon makes a late claim for "Cockhead of the Year Award' by dobbing himself in. I know what you're thinking, that these imbeciles surely can't get any more moronic, but if this article from The Advertiser is to be believed, then the 26 year old subject has surely set the standard. No wonder Bendigo Police carted him off to hospital for an assessment!

  • The Googlers Guide to Gobbledegeek 2.0

    Without a doubt, the most frequently used search string in 2009 was any variation of 'Nude photos of Julia Gillard' for Christ's sake (original post). I still cannot fathom why anyone would be searching for nude photos of the Welsh red-headed politician (no offence J). The runner up is the very steady performer that is any variation of 'simple pizza recipe'. The one-eyed, almost but not quite, entirely unlike, quasi-serial killer 'Barry Rochford' is behind bars in third (original post). For those in search of 'telstra customer service', let's face it, it's an oxymoron (like 'happily married' or low calorie 'chocolate covered bacon'). You're not going to find it. It's like Shangri-bloody-la!

  • Unique, interesting or unusual ways to get fit?

    I find it extremely difficult to motivate myself to go jogging. In fact, motivation for any sort of fitness-related exertion is nigh on impossible to muster. Before you jump down my throat with unhelpful comments related to bone-idleness and such, may I add that there is a genuine underlying medical reason for this. I'd rather go to the dentist AND watch paint dry than pound the pavement and so I am on a mission to uncover something a little more inspiring.

  • Barry Rochford Guilty of Killing Dog Found Hanged

    Last night I made a note to write a follow-up to Beware the Butcher of Bendigo following the news that Barry Rochford had been found guilty of animal cruelty, according to United Press International, but in reality I should be commenting on the legal system. The 6 month prison term handed down by the court was pitiful, in my humble opinion and combined with his current sentence of four years for multiple arson, he would be eligible for parole in early 2011. Wow! It's almost enough to make you want to take up a life of crime! Edit - I just realised I posted this with the title 'Barry Rochford Found Hanged'. I swear it wasn't wishful thinking, just a slip.

This is the reason why they come, ergo the reason the post appears in Google's search results but is anyone able to explain to me why one would be Googling for images of Australia's Deputy Prime Minister in her birthday suit?
