Such a lovely, cheerful, upbeat tune!

If you’re wondering what this is about, you might want to read up on the latest news about Australia’s favorite defender of priestly pedophiles.


  1. Matthew Trevor says

    Pell: “I’m happy to return to Australia to answer any questions necessary to clear up this matter.”
    Commission: “Okay.”
    Pell: “Oh, uh, I have this doctor’s certificate…”

    For those fortunate enough to not have encountered this walking pile of excrement, Pell is considered to be the mentor of our Worst PM Ever – Tony Abbott – and has objected strongly to the Vatican divesting from fossil fuel investments.

    France didn’t turn the Shah over to Iran, Spain and England didn’t turn over Pinochet to Chile, the US didn’t turn over Orlando Bosch to Cuba, etc.

    But when it comes to allowing criminals to hide and avoid prosecution, nobody can match the experience and frequency of the catholic cult – Paul Marcinkus, Bernard Law, George Pell, and countless thousands of pedopriests and nuns.

    Only because they’ve been at it longer than the US government.

    The call-in on the “pompous baboon” line is just great. I love me some Tim Minchin.

    I know his appearance doesn’t have anything to do with his art, but I kinda miss the eyeliner… It’s weird how once you establish a mental picture of what someone looks like, if they don’t match that pattern some piece of your brain starts going, “update required! downloading…”

    You knew it was coming. I was glad he made me wait for it, and even more glad he put it in the voice of Pell’s God. No point in being hypocritical after all.

    Sadly he wouldn’t be the first Aussie to flee when asked to face the music. Christopher Skase blazed the trail there, in almost exactly the same fashion (“I’m utterly innocent. I’d love to come back and clear my name, but I’m just so poorly I couldn’t possibly survive the plane trip).

    I support anything done to aid the survivors, but I am cynical enough to believe that Australia’s efforts to get Pell back home will be as successful as we were with Skase.

    He writes all his own songs. He’s known for writing songs especially for talk shows that he’s going to be on. One of my favorites is “Five Poofs and Two Pianos.”

  8. says

    Does Minchin write his own songs?

    Not only songs, but a hit, critically acclaimed, multiple award-winning musical called Matilda, based on the book by Roald Dahl.

    The man is a special talent. If you can find it, I highly recommend watching the 2008 documentary “Rock ‘n’ Roll Nerd” that charts his rise to fame. Not only is it entertaining, but it’s a real feel-good movie about a worthy person.

    And for the musical version of “Groundhog Day” which is supposed to to open in London soonish and on Broadway next year. Whether it’s a prowl around his videos on Youtube or Atticas Fetch in “Californication” there is so much to delight you… or offend you massively if you’re the type who gets (and needs to get) offended.
