Why are ‘Wild Saturday’ victims being ignored?

My home, a victim of 'Wild Saturday' - Where are all the donations now you pricks????

On the Saturday of the 7th Febuary 2009 the Black Saturday bushfires took a hold on the State of Victoria (the place to be? My arse!!) and destroyed over 2,000 homes and took nearly 200 lives. Aussies world-wide like Mel Gibson, Kylee Minogue, Nickoff Kidman & Greg ‘I think with my dick’ Norman gave generously (as did the ordinary folks) and John Brumby collected over $300 million to hand out to the victims and gave them all free trips to Disneyland and the footy. This was called Black saturday and the whole world knew about it and went out of their way and took out loans to give mega-bucks to lend a helping hand to the poor buggers that got burned.

Now, On Saturday the 6th March 2010 the Wild Saturday storm of the century swept acoss the metropolis and cosmapolitan Melbourne destroying hundreds of thousand of homes – and even causing the Flemington races to arbandoned – But what did we the victims of this catastrophey get for all our pain and suffring?

I’ll tell you what we got … F*CK ALL!

Where are all the bleeding heart do-goodies this time, eh? Have youse got no compashen for your fellow man? Look at my f*cking home! And I don’t have any insurance !!!!!

Just give up one latte a day for the next month is all I ask. Give – until it hurts.

I demand an enquiry into this Mr Brumby.


  1. SockPuppet says:

    So double what I pay you now will help in you current time of need then Socky?

    I have cleverly moved your quote to my post Iain to increase the ‘pay-per-views’. There is your answer.

    BTW, Norm from Blue Gums is getting his tractor out and will try to salvage my home from the swoolen Patterson River which swept it away. I blame the yuppies in Patterson Lakes for not clearing there gutters (it would be beneath them).

  2. Iain Hall says:

    (it would be beneath them).

    They must have very low houses or they are all very tall at Paterson lakes….

    Wot? me take what you say literally?
    Nah never!

  3. Pkd says:

    That area is a flood plain iain – flat as a pancake!

  4. bingbing says:

    Why is your home pink?

  5. SockPuppet says:

    It’s not pink Bing Crosby it’s stark white and ‘comet red’ (faded by the Patterson River polluted waters).

  6. bingbing says:

    Very fetching, regardless.

  7. SockPuppet says:

    So how much are you donating to the Wild Saturday cause?

  8. JM says:

    I believe flood, storm and tempest are commonly insurable items?

    But seriously, “hundreds of thousands”? C’mon. Thousands only.

    And “destroyed”? Damaged, yes. Destroyed, no.

    I don’t see the entire population of Melbourne dehoused, do you?

  9. SockPuppet says:

    I didn’t see the entire population of Melbourne dehoused by the fires either Jm. so how much are you gonna give?

  10. JM says:

    Do you understand the phrase “hundreds of thousands” or are you innumerate?

    There are about 3.7 million people in Melbourne with an household occupancy rate somewhere between 3 and 4, therefore perhaps 1 million households.

    An absolutely disastrous fraction of those, enough to cause significant economic disruption – ie. people not turning up to work, transport not running, jobs not being done – would probably be anything in excess of about 5%, agreed?

    ie. 50,000 households. Even 10,000 households would cause damage but wouldn’t be so noticeable.

    So why the phrase “hundreds of thousands”?

    And why the word “destroyed”, when “damaged” is more accurate? ie. people have suffered economic loss probably covered by their insurance but have little reason to prevent them turning up to work 2 days later.

    And why do you post this nonsense when the papers only refer to “thousands” of houses “damaged”? And counting not just those in Melbourne but actually across the entire state?

    Exaggeration? Moi?

  11. SockPuppet says:

    Okay Jm I was using a bit if license. That’s what us writers with flares do, we use poets license, we are poets.

    Anyhow 40,000 insurance claims have so far been lodged. And that’s a shit load more than on black saturday.

    And as for you ask “why do I post this nonsense?” … Just take a look at my f*cking home!

    So i asks you aghain – how much you gonna give?

  12. Iain Hall says:

    Just dig deep and give Socky some assistance in his hour of need rather than arguing the toss over the semantics.

  13. SockPuppet says:

    And remember jM its only one latte a day for the next month.

  14. Rossini says:

    Well Mr.Sock Puppet, have you tried ringing 3AW and crying into Neil Mitchell’ s ear?

  15. SockPuppet says:

    No, but Red Ted Baillieu said he’d help out. He has a lot of money. (Red Ted is the leader of the Liberal Party in Victoria for the information of the 95% of the population who dunno know who he is.)

  16. Pkd says:

    95% of Victorians probably don’t know who Ted Baillieu is, let alone anyone else!

  17. SockPuppet says:

    That’s what I meant Pkd. Sometimes I forget that Iain’s blog is based in Queensland and syndicated world-wide (on pay-per-view). Yep, 95% of us Vics wouldn’t know who he is. Does Iain know who he is?

  18. JM says:


    I don’t drink coffee generally but when I do it’s expresso. Very, very small and hot. No sugar.

    And Gauloises please. I don’t do my cultural affectations my halves.

  19. SockPuppet says:

    What is expresso? Is it anything like espresso? Anyhow, if you cut back by just two packs of Gauloises per week for one month you could save my caravan home.
