#240 – Cruise Ships

1 08 2011

When it’s not travelling on budget airlines to the exotic countries of Phuket and Bali, the well travelled bogan enjoys sailing the high seas on one of P&O’s floating pleasure palaces.  The cruise ship represents the epitome of bogan travel, permitting it to chalk up to six stamps on its passport in 8 days, visiting foreign countries like Noumea, Port Vila and Suva, without travelling more than 500 metres from a major port and while enjoying all the comforts of home.

Like big things and shopping centres, the bogan is attracted to cruise ships due to their sheer size. A typical ship weighs in at over 70,000 tonnes, has hundred of rooms, multiple levels and comes equipped with everything a bogan requires: restaurants, nightclubs, casinos, gyms, IMAX theatres and comprehensive in-cabin entertainment; allowing the bogan to eat steak and chips every night, drink stupid quantities of overpriced liquor, gamble, get huge, watch Avatar in 3D and enjoys reruns of Underbelly from its cabin.

Every day, the cruise ship stops at a different, non-descript South Pacific port, where the bogan briefly disembarks from its Neptunian chateau to be greeted by some P&O employed, Polynesian-themed dancers. This will prove the closest the bogan will come to a cultural interchange all day, as it spends the next five hours getting bronzed, snorkelling and trying to haggle with more P&O employees at the gift shop for a Pacific themed woodcarving. After a quick coconut cracking demonstration and sarong tying class, the bogan reboards the Pacific Princess, feeling for all the world like Captain Cook.

That night, the bogan struggles to peel a prawn from its towering buffet plate, regaling its peers with stories of its near brush with death at the tentacles of a giant killer squid and joking how it saw Lote Tuqiri three times that day. After dinner, it drinks wholesale quantities of Corona and hits the nightclubs, hoping to lure a female bogan back to its cabin where it can feed her this year’s designer drug and breach her hull.

The adventerous bogan will attempt cultural exchange with a ladyboy at one of these ports.

Simon,
Understood that he is not savey to the boy part of the lady boy..

The true bogan will not have the energy or strength to put anyone in a position suitable hull breaching by the end of the boozefest

I realy doubt his ability to get anything up on the slipway even

Probably need some one else to peel his prawn .

Oh, James Hunter, you burly matloe, allow me to suggest that the type of cruise ship this post refers to is not the same type of floating honky-tonk that you and that troupe of chinless carnies known as Circus Buzzard get a free ride on.
Also, pops, ease-up on the sexin imagery. I just did a little sick in my mouth reading your latest instalment.

Why, Petey? Was JH describing your life partner or something?

It’s OK, dude. You can love anyone you want. You don’t need to compensate.

You do need to be careful if you are expecting a torpedo tube and get a bowsprit instead.

some from memory are more like the loading ramp on a whaleing mother ship !
Thinking of Bowsprits though those on the old tea clippers and similar would certainly cure hemoroids.
No wonder they used to fear being rammed back in those days

Don’t forget they ignore all common sense, rent a scooter, drive like maniacs, crash and end up in a full body cast which significantly cuts into the fun aspects of their remaining 11 days and nights of booze fueled date raping….

Should I be proud or ashamed of the polaroid photograph I have of myself at about 9 years old, dressed as a Rubiks Cube, standing in the purple and green velvet Zodiac Lounge of the Fairstar the F#ckfest , off the coast of Suva? Personally, I am leaning toward proud. I am wearing short shorts and a box covered in coloured crepe paper.

I also remember being in a mood for the first three days because it wasn’t as nice as The Love Boat! I made my thoughts about it being a rusty dump well known to my parents, when they sobered up enough to leave the classy Zodiac Lounge to see if we were still alive and not sold to white slave traders (about 2 hours a day)

Too right. I would not go unless it was The Love Boat.

Don’t be fooled by the Love Boat tranquil swimming pool – the reality is that you get thrashed around by 10 foot waves as the pool empties itself from one end and floods the other, and back and forth. The only boon was being able to see the old freckle tits ladies of the 80’s being soaked as they topped up their skin cancer poolside.

Ash, My only knowledge of steroid use is FTM (female to male) transgender friends taking them to transition genders and people with HIV related wasting using them to maintain normal body proportions. All legit usages and curiously enough it will help a transman get larger down below.

Then there are the straight muscle mary’s who hang out shirtless at gay discos to pick up chicks and the Norweigan terrorists – but I won’t have any part of that in my social circle.

1 08 2011

I am soooo old that my family and I actually migrated from England to Australia by ship (in 1976).

I have a photo of me at the kiddie’s fancy dress party as an Egyptian mummy. (Pretty easy costume, come to think of it.)

In 1976 we flew from London to Hong Kong and then boarded a cruise ship (an old russian tanker ship) to Australia. The swimming pool was the cargo hold filled with water.

2 08 2011
Bag O'Turnips

I thought that migrants (and returning immigrants, thoroughly disillusioned with life Down Under, ‘cos it’s “nothin’ like home”) by 1976 pretty much all boarded the Jumbo jets (when they still had milk run routes to fly to Australia, as their range was limited and the 747-100s & 200s fuel economy was not nearly as good as now) to get between the two continents, such was the impact of the Boeing 747 in opening air travel to the masses, swiftly consigning the ocean liners (for commuting as opposed to leisure) to history within five-or-so years). When my Dad arrived from Italy in 1966, is was on a liner, but when he first returned to visit in ’77, it was on a Qantas jumbo (I rather liked the the 1970s livery with the polished underbody and ochre stripe along its flank).

Mind you, airfares then in real terms were still significantly higher than is the case now, even with the price of oil being much more now. Shows you how much has changed in the mass movement of migrants over the last 40 years (Qantas acquired and flew their first 747-238B in September 1971).

James Hunter

BagO,
If yon wated
to seebogans at their best
747sps thego as they were designed especially for longest range. Long wings short body (less passengers) but capable of Sydney LA non stop. giving 18 hours of nonstop dehydration and boozing for maxtreem effect.

2 08 2011
Bag O'Turnips

Rather dinky little plane was the 747SP, with odd proportions (the “beluga” finished aft of the wing rather than fore and the wingspan was wider than the total length), but a great idea until the 747-400s and 777s rendered them obsolete.

Still have a dedicated following as private jets in the Middle East. Qantas ran two of them, not just on the Pacific routes, but primarily on the Sydney-Wellington route, where its shorter length was useful for the latter’s short runway and had a suitable capacity.

Alas, the cruise liner…a safe oceanic haven for the human cattle of boganism. Rohypnol ahoy!

I wonder if they ever feel like the livestock that get shuttled on the death ships in live export when they realise that their cut-price lowest level cabin is a poky little cubicle not far above the waterline?

Nah, they like their steaks and lamb chops too much and have a typically reactionary defensiveness going in to bat for our live export cattle farmers, who at present are “doin’ it tough” as a result of some tree-hugging scumbag showing footage of those Others in Indonesia mistreating the cattleyard stare riven cows, but assure themselves that all they’re getting is a little discipline (hey, they’re gonna be dead soon anyway!) and all the lucrative export dollars that come in, in spite of the aforementioned distrust they harbour towards those who are the end recipients of said cattle.

Hypocrites. Wonder how they would like to like to be herded into a cattle truck, only to meet their maker in a gruesome end to become human hamburger patties to satisfy the hunger of cows with a junk food bent? No wonder I get occasional smug feelings upon being vego, even though that destination was ultimately decided by aesthetics more than else.

The live export debate caused much confusion to the bogan.

On one hand, you had the farmers who were, as Turnips put it, “doin’ it bloody tough.” But on the other hand, you had them bloody Indos beating the cows and shit which, mate, just isn’t on aye?

This is gold TBL! I worked as a muso on some cruise ships a while back, and was on the one that kicked off Austen Tayshus in Fiji or Noumea I think it was. He, aptly, described what cruises were like in his comedy routine. This was well before ‘bogans’ were known as bogans. He was hilarious, and right! Gold TBL!!!

I’m the son of a schoolteacher so I went to many different schools. In my day there was always one fat kid. Just one. His name would be Fat Gary or Fat Trevor or such.

It must be very confusing for a child nowadays. Or has the worm turned? Do the fat kids have mates called Skinny Jarrod? Assuming, that is, that his name is actually Jarrod.

Mick,

I got told I look gaunt the other day! At 5’11 and 69 kg I have a spot on BMI etc. So these days the norm is for people to be overweight so anyone who actually takes care of themselves looks unusual. Sad huh.

3 08 2011
Mick - Flying With Bogans Since 2008

That is one thing that the bogan will never understand. During my travels through the Australian sporting landscape I’ve met more than a few “heroes” of their respective sports. Most of them have not been huge. Some have even been quite tiny compared to me. And I’m not big…or what the bogan would consider normal.

Somehow the bogan has come to link huge with sporting success. It doesn’t work like that. Point out someone who competed at the Olympics and the response will be “What? That weedy little bloke over there?”

Just another thing that the bogan will never get. Like class.

It’s just that being fat is now the norm, plus sized models, fat action groups etc pathetic. You’re right about the size thing. Imagine the bogue meeting one of the V8 drivers who are the size of jockeys! “that skinny little f*cker drives an HSV, no way, it’d rip his arms off, give me a go”

Mind you, I did once win a competition to a day at Barbagallo Raceway to have an advanced driving course with Wayne Gardiner (a far better motorcyclist, methinks) and Neil Crompton, followed by two hot laps in his V8 Supercar…going down the straight at 230 km/h was mighty grand fun for a petrolhead like!

Are you saying that if you aren’t close enough to be decapitated by the trailing kevlar restraining harness which failed, allowing a wheel to fly off the car which understeered into the concrete barrier on the straight, you may as well have stayed home and watched this happen to someone else on television ?

Then the rather dumbed-down 7:30 (we miss you, Red Kezza!) will profile the state of bitchiness going down in Commercial TV Land in their prime-time current affairs shows.

George Negus will just go “hmph!” to all this the next night of Ton Of Rubbish’s 6:30…he’s one of the very few (along with Shaun Micalef) who can boast about being on every network. Like the latter, Negus has some cred with discerning viewers and is known to assert his role in the programme structure, thus making waves that are discomfiting to their producers, who are usually used to obsequious talking heads and wannabe “celebrities” who’ll do a gig for beer or sex basically.

4 08 2011

I agree, Turnips. It won’t be long before 7.30 starts doing stories about sexebrity gossip, miracle diet pills and shonky refrigerator mechanics.

Sigh. The ABC, one of the world’s great broadcasters, joining its commercial brethren on the journey down the death spiral of lowest common denominator bullshit.

And, want to know why it’s not called the 7.30 Report any more? Because, they don’t actually report anything anymore! Leigh Sales and Chris Uhlmann are not worthy to even light Kerry O’Brien’s candle at bedtime.

And the ABC’s about to get even worse, with the axe being applied to The New Inventors and the “yarts”, for instance. I thought Howard had been ousted almost four years ago? Was that a particularly deep sleep I’ve just woken up from?

4 08 2011
Bag O'Turnips

There’s still a few of Howard’s Cultural Warriors still remaining on the ABC board, from when his Gummint stacked it back it then, often kept for five year stints, so hopefully the last of those crusty demagogues will have left Ultimo by then.

Explains why Insiders still has that drip Andrew Bolt on it and that Counterpoint still ekes out a meagre existence on Radio National. But I agree, like The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, this institution has slid into a morass of cheap populism to attract the numbers, but no one from the lumpenproletariat particular wants to move across to either of them and all the while the hitherto loyal base has become disenfranchised by this ill-advised stooping, moving elsewhere online.

It’s the wrong forum for a man of his credibility and talents…I suppose because he has gravitas with the yoof, it was perhaps conceived as a suitable lead-in for The 7PM Project.

But I guess he forgot that this is Ten, where the demographic is, well, shall we say, less than discerning in its viewing habits and has producers that will do anything machiavellian to maintain their youth-skewed ratings numbers.

The media Nazis relentless attacks on Gillard and Labour is pathetic and sickening. The Australian is especially rampant,foam at the mouth stuff at the moment.

I agree James they don’t want the mega rich don’t want their oligarchy/dictatorship to be hurt and a lot of bogans don’t want their unearned and undeserved positions to be hurt. Even though they’ve had such an amazing run over the last 10-15 years and made SO much money (that they didn’t deserve or earn). The sad thing is a lot of bogans that would be hurt by Abbott are lapping it all up.

The bogans gulibility re Abbott’s mouthings is truely amazing.more mooves then Ginger Rogers
He is anti abortion,anti union anti fair go for workers still thinks the market forces will solve everythin for everyone. still he must be a bit simple to heve ever signed up to be a catholic priest. Needs someone to feed concepts to him and hes on his bike. Maybe TBL could do a blog on the subject as it make one start to believe conspiracy theoryists are right and that “they” are putting something in our water. ! ,

4 08 2011
martin

Yeah James I’m still not sure what it is on the whole. Is it just News Ltd and the like or is it also just flat out misogyny?

Or is it because these bogans are so stretched to the limit with their greed and status anxiety that there is no leeway what so ever.

It’d have to be something quite maxxtreme to be giving that nutter Abbott any credit.

Yeah he’s a real good Catholic isn’t he, having given a child up for adoption. He’s also got something like $700k worth of personal debt which I find peculiar given that where he lives isn’t terribly expensive and he would have bought his place when house prices were still reasonable.

4 08 2011

Martin,
Sounds like he has the aspirations of a poor catholic boy.Bet the catholics are glad hes not a priest. He would lock the congregation in the church until he had sufficient in the plate ! All the time telling them that what he was doing was good for them.

The problem I have with tipping is that it is only the frontline staff who get the tips. What about the poor bastards out the back doing the dirty work who get nothing? The other problem I have is that I find it hard to give a bonus to somebody who probably gets paid more than I do.

I just spent the last two weeks training a brown people (Bangladeshi, to give the correct hue).
He was intelligent, dilligent and charming. he is here with his wife who is doing her PhD at Flinders.
It will surprise none of our regular commenteers that I have risen to the top in an industry which is beneath the dignity of most. My psychiatrist calls it shamebusting.
anyway…
I was informed prior to the fact that my new Bengali chum would be meeting me on site and that his name was 5253. He was an hour early and his name was actually 52425 – obviously too difficult for the bogan ear or memory. I thought he was pretty cool. He was amazed that I knew Bangladesh was Bengal and that it was presently Ramadan (I promised I would teach him to swear properly after the holy month) After the first day he was effusive in his expression of how grateful he was to be working with me. “My first Australian Boss, I will remember you always!” I said I was glad to have him, “you should be aware though 52425, some Australians are a bit….”
“oh Boss, I am already four months in Australia. I know many people are so offensive. This is why I am so happy you are my Boss.”
sad.

Oh, James Hunter, don’t have a crai about it. You probably don’t even pay your troupe of lolcock carnies that much. Sadly paying staff correctly and running a business effectively are just two things you will never understand because you are a weak, timid and untrustworthy homosexual.

In most restaurants, dish pigs share tips with the front staff. Least the ones I worked in.

3 08 2011
martin

I don’t mind tipping. I think it takes a lot of discipline to look nice, be nice and have grace. It also helps if they look hot and give me a look like they’d bang me.

But if they don’t have that they can git farked. Like this shitty restaurant I went to where the food was like some sort of maggi shit that you could make yourself and the staff went out of their way to not make eye contact. Nose studs are definite no no, they just remind me of the existence of snot.

I worked both as a waiter and dish pig and believe me, that at the time (2001 under the Court (WA) Gummint’s draconian industrial relations regime), any tips were welcome…the most generous tipper I had was a regular who was a prostitute, who’d come in at 4 or 5 AM after work on a Sunday morning and give me $10 each time I took her order and brought up her meal: she was pretty cool.

4 08 2011
Mick - Flying With Bogans Since 2008

If the service is good, I’ll tip. Because I don’t tip that much when I do I tip handsomely. Good service is all to rare though.

Ash - Breachin' Carnts' Hulls' By Glassin' 'Em.

Fine. Carnts.

The conversation began about #124, but I had the temerity to point out that buttsecks, in any form, is kinda ghey. When it was pointed out to me that it was with a chick, I mentioned “yeah, true, but what do you see of her except the arse? Doesn’t make a difference, yr still fukn in there. And gay dudes probably do it better also. They know what to do and shit.”

Somehow I avoided a glassin’ as the conversation moved to oral. Apparently the latest practice du jour is to pull out just before ejaculation and to cum all over yr partner’s face. Since I have sadly never had a good blow job in my life, I had nothing much to say.

In fact even though the bogan has had a computer since the late 90s it can’t even burn their data onto a dvd. I have relos like this and I had to do some burning for them. Can’t even google “how to burn a dvd” and read. F#cktards.

Amend:

Turns out the initial report was a bit of creative journalism from the journalistic gun-jumpers at News. The polar bear has since been linked to an underground white supremacist group and believes it has struck a blow against that liberal, multiculturalist, Arctic-camping education that has so pervaded pure Polar culture in recent years.

For more information read the bear’s manifesto: “2083: A Declaration of White North-Polar Independence and the Ethics of Eating Baby Seals”.

Interestinly they also report that police have advised the parents not to give interviews.
Big ask if the Tellegraph could do their part and not ask for interviews ?
also if the “magor leed” ie the book beingh on the book list would it not have been more value to police if the information were given to them privatel rather having its value potentially degraded by being blasted all over the trashmedia ?

Or your Internship at various regional newspapers (aka pamphlets). Just why you weren’t awarded a Fulbright I’ll never understand.

Also, pops, you media maven, it’s hardly surprising you appeared as a monthly Home Bloke at The Picture {Magazine}. Equally unsurprising is how you did not win. For the uninitiated, here’s ACP’s own description of The Picture: “For almost 21 years now, The Picture has been the average Aussie bloke’s first stop for funny local stories, jokes, stunning nude girls, bizarre photos, puzzles with swear words in them and advice columns written by strippers. A weekly magazine squarely aimed at anyone who has a sense of humour and likes looking at women without their clothes on, it’s always chock-a-block with the cream of Australian womanhood in all their naked glory. We call them Home Girls, and they’re not supermodels – they’re real women you could meet at the shops, in the pub or at the bus stop. There isn’t another mag on the planet that looks at the world the way we do: through a pair of beer goggles. The Picture – don’t let the name fool you. There are words in it, too.”

Those last two sentences…

Oh, James Hunter how many ‘real women’ have you met ‘at the shops, in the pub or at the bus stop’? I feel certain the Dogpatch Arms must be absolutely chockers with such gunnies!

I am truly puzzled by it. it attackes in its childish way anything that i say be it serious,humourous, satirical or nonsensical and yet it never makes any comments to add to general debate or provide information of general interest.
Funny thing is that of course it knows absolutely nothing about me other then what is on my website or that i have posted . what has inspired its continual monotribe of gutter slander and schoolboy potty mout attempts to humour itself at the expense(percieved) of myself is way outside the relms of sane immagination.
If you notice the times of his posts he must be doing night shifts at the moment and maybe that explains it.
I try and sometimes succeed for days at a time to simply ignore it but problem is every post i make is spat upon by it .it truly is obsesed and must spend hours every day going through the entire blog looking for fresh commen of mine.
It is annouing, perplexing and potentially dangerous. the degree of obsession it shows is often the precursor for psychotic episodes of a violent nature.
should i be worried ?
maybe i need to report it to TBL or Federal Police ?

Think back to the abuse you and others have hurled at me (you’ll need to be sober for this). Was I worried? Did I need to jump into a vituperative diatribe against your comments? Not really, although I’ve C&P’d every single abusive post written to me in anticipation of this predictable turn of character. You dumbarse, bullying hayseeds all act in the same obvious ways. You dish it out but are too weak to suck it up and you do nothing but turn this site into a Jerry Springer show. I’m so glad I’m not you, pops. Farewell, rube.

Mental Note to Self No more Cruises after this year.I have had enough of dealing with idiots and feral scum for the most part close to five years in a row except for the time I broke the habit and went to Vietnam in 2009.From 2013 onwards It’s back to my usual Asian or Land Based South Pacific Holidays that I did in the past prior to Christmas 2007.

This Year I am in the process of getting a Singapore Holiday arranged at the present time to replace a now cancelled booking I had for the Carnival Spirit to Fiji and New Caledonia Cruise this Christmas I booked ages ago and it was not just the cost or the fear about the ending of the world that forced me to look at other options.I got stuck for the most part with ferals on my last cruise on the Pacific Jewel and required some grown up company at times with families to escape from them.Who knows next year officially providing it’s safe to do so It might be a group tour to Thailand for me in 2013.
