Saturday Sanity Check
'No, you're not crazy. I thought the same thing as you!'
ABC staff have been offered counselling after a senior producer stripped naked in front of colleagues, wrongly believing he had logged off a Skype call.
The producer, who was getting ready to take a shower, was reportedly naked on screen for about two minutes.
An ABC spokesperson said:
“The ABC is in regular communication with the relevant team members and are in the process of developing strategies to ensure an incident of this nature does not occur again.
“The ABC has a counselling service available to all ABC employees which has been offered in this instance.”
I would like to offer my services as a counsellor to staff at the ABC.
I propose to conduct the following three-part seminar for ABC staff …
Session One: Look Away
In this session I train participants in the art of looking away. It basically involves turning your head.
ABC journalists have been looking away from Labor blunders and Greens stupidity for years, so they should not find this session difficult.
Session Two: Log Off
Participants will learn how to log off a Skype call. By the end of the session they will be competent at moving the cursor on their device to the “end call” icon and clicking on it.
Session Three: “Seriously Guys”
In this session highly interactive session I basically just shake my head at ABC staff while muttering over and over: “Seriously guys.”
If any other organisation needs similar training I am happy to provide it. I require business class flights, one night’s accomodation in a five star hotel and $1500 payment. To make a booking, get in contact via the comments section.
THE San Francisco Unified School District announced last week they would no longer use the word “chief” in job titles to avoid the word’s connotation with Native Americans.
For those who are confused, and many people are easily confused these days, here is a San Francisco School Chief …
And here is a Native American Chief …
I am not sure the change is necessary, but it’s certainly brave. Doh!
First reader to get the joke receives a free copy of my book.
The Australian Labor Party and the public service … the only places a person can get promoted to their highest level of incompetence based upon where they’re from and that they sit down to pee!
Governor-General David Hurley has sworn in Labor’s new ministers with a record number of women and ethnically diverse frontbenchers!
Sky News reported:
The Labor Cabinet includes a record number of 10 women in the 23-member team.
This follows former prime minister Scott Morrison’s previous record of seven female members.
If Peter Dutton becomes PM in three years he should go for the all time record and appoint 50 women to his 23-member team. Why not.
But here’s the really good news, suddenly everyone knows what a woman is!
SPEAKING of women, trans swimmer Lia Thomas has announced he wants to swim against women at the Olympic Games.
Don’t be outraged. Be inspired.
Let’s be honest, any amateur can cheat at college level. But Thomas wants to cheat at the highest level possible - the Olympics!
What ambition. What confidence. You have to respect that!
Anyway, there’s a wonderful lesson here for all of us.
Think big! Don’t allow reality, fairness or logic to crush your dreams.
AND finally, I needed to share this video with you. It really upset me …
If you look closely, you’ll see neither of them are wearing masks.
Oh boy oh boy James could I inspire you with the deeds of diverse ministers or not? Yes not. Some of our female ministers are also ethnics but diversity seems to breed contempt. Yes contempt of the taxpayer while they lazily collect their salary or just plain stuff the place up with incompetence. We started this but you guys have set it in stone. However our new foreign minister Wong I think her name is has certainly made her mark here in NZ
You suggested course for ABC staffers is brilliant. Reminds me of the old RAAF Joke about pilots reporting that the IFF (secondary radar) did not work in the OFF mode. Nobody seems able to find that setting any more… seems to me we have too few synapsing neurons.
