Dog Biting Men Digest – 14 December 2004

Dog Biting Men Digest – 14 December 2004

A regular update from Dog Biting Men.

DogBitingMen is home to Mediacow, David W Young, Olivia Kember, Ben Thomas, and Mr Neil Falloon.

Going Too Far

Mediacow wrote that Going Too Far is going to be big this year. Even bigger than Russell Brown was in 2004. Going Too Far is when you aim to do something just a wee bit outré, but end up being inappropriate and offensive instead. Like Prince Harry, or Tony Blair.

Abusive and Filthy

Ben Thomas and Mr Neil Falloon wrote that ACT leader Rodney Hide’s about his latest scandal was a hard working couple allegedly bankrupted by the Employment Relationship Authority. What, Hide asked rhetorically, did they do wrong? This question and others – including, is making unsourced allegations over the internet a good strategy for an embattled party leader – are answered.
