Pauline attacks “bogan” preppers

You can take the girl out of  Woolloongabba and the  Woolloongabba out of the girl, apparently:

I can’t see why there is anything wrong with prepping. Just don’t fight over it.

          Probly. Rumour has it he sneaks out at night and toilet paper wraps native animals while they’re snoring. Always amusing to find a spotted quoll around the hinterland in a TP coat.

          Oh, that Swampy we say, giggling to ourselves like schoolgirls.

          • Lol, I’m picturing that scene. Reminds me of the Christmas party with Chucky the golden retreiver wrapped in blinking xmas lights on the end of multiple extension cords. Chucky was oblivious (not the sharpest) and a real party animal.

    • It’s official – people have literally gone off the deep end. Lady in Coles told me that when they opened at 7.30 this morning that the hordes rushed and filled their trolleys until sh*t was falling out. You don’t decide what’s for dinner any more – the shelves decide for you. Every bit of rice, pasta, diced tomatoes, pasta sauces, mince, whatever – gonzo!

  1. Jeez.

    Wife: “handsome husbo, the supermercado was out of pasta for our normal shop. (Not your allegedly-crazy-but-actually-prudent preparatory planning).”
    Handsome husbo: “no probs let me duck out to our stores and grab some. Shall I grab some of the Balvennie too?”
    Wife: ” Why not, it is Tuesday after all. And a jolly good show on your excellent and prudent risk management allowing us to minimise social contact in these troubled times.”

    Who is Pauline dog whistling here. Wait, aren’t her constituents mostly bogans?!

    I CONFUSE

    • When the fishwives get together and vent their anxiety at the unfolding horror, the douchebag is always someone else. Even if they’ve had 1500 rolls of sh1t tickets in the laundry for a fortnight, they’ll be hating on a dude with 2 boxes of couscous at the checkout.

  2. This is actually a serious issue for Trump.
    His base are gun ho preppers who have been stocking the shed and piling the ammo for just this scenario.
    Meanwhile their leader has been trying to downplay the virus and be relaxed about it.
    Its getting them all confused and many are seeing this as the deciding factor to not vote for him.

      “His base are gun ho preppers who have been stocking the shed and piling the ammo for just this scenario.”

      wait, wouldn’t this mean that these people wouldn’t need to rush down to the shops to stock up on everything because they already have 3 months’ supply in their backyard bomb shelters? This could work out quite well for Trump…

      Also, is it Mormons or JWs who are encouraged to have a 3-month food stockpile? Both? I can’t remember.

      And please consider that the USA is the land of the doomsday cult. Every 5th person has a storage locker full to the brim with a year’s supply of canned food and lots of empty flasks for the collection of their precious bodily fluids.

    Driven by FOMO, I asked the missus this morning to grab an extra half week’s worth of groceries this week.
    I was also thinking of the extra Stikeez.

    Hey, David, the supermarkets are still open in the worst hit parts of Italy. So they will not close here. After the panic all the shelves will be full, and there will be no-one in the shops because they have all run around like idiots stocking up with weeks worth of stuff. I am old with health issues, so a prime target of this thing, but I seem to be more relaxed about it than most of you young healthy buggers.
    Calm down people!

  5. Peter, I agree, there will come a time when the shelves will be full again and the prices more sensible — big discounting will be back, in fact, because nothing will be moving. But right now, it’s every man for himself. This morning, according to my source, was the worst since the crisis began. So, it may take another week or so for the frenzy to abate.

      I just basically got stocked up on a whole bunch of dried stuff that I always eat anyway (rice, pasta, brekky cereal, etc) plus meat, fish and the like just before the panic started to set in. I figure it’s good to have all that stuff and then you don’t have to go out as often or get as much when you do. I haven’t been since the panic set in and I have just enough to carry me over what I think will be the panic stage.

  6. Plenty of most things in IGA Cairns, but car park a frenzy and people definitely stocking up…about treble the number of people there. Still in denial up here, but some prepping yes

  7. Dont panic folks, my friend is an ED doctor originally from the UK. Keep hoarding goods like you’ve been doing such that people can’t eat, will guarantee they are on the first flight home. Doesnt have time to be queueing for groceries with all the bogans.
    Dont worry, how much of your healthcare workforce could do the same?
    So when your loved ones are dead, be glad you hoarded all that food you couldn’t eat. Im sure the Nepalese students or Uber Eats workers can take up the slack.

    A few years on those nice red leather benches is guaranteed to make one forget ones bogan roots …….just like those LABOUR pretenders …….
