Australians were deeply shocked yesterday when an interview with US official left gadfly, Michael Moore, was aired.

In the interview, Mr Moore - often challenged over alleged inaccuracies in his films - said that Australia's Prime Minister, John Howard, "looks as though he has half a brain".

A stunned populace exclaimed, almost in unison - "That's a lie! he looks as though he only has QUARTER of a brain!"

Of course, Mr Howard - who has never been able to trade in his looks:

is well known as a skilled political operator - and an expert in Outlast Games (having won his job by grimly outlasting all opponents, the last of whom, Andrew Peacock, gave up a few years ago, accepting, wearily, a post as Ambassador in Washington - where girlfriend, Shirley Maclaine, was observed to fall deeply asleep during a speech by Howard) - nonetheless - Moore's misreading of the apparent brain situation has united a nation just in time to head of fthe winter blues.

Would-be leader, treasurer Peter Costello - known for his unnervingly vulpine grin - clearly fears that Howard ("the velcro kid") will outlast HIM.

One can almost SEE the knife being sharpened here:

although they HAVE declared undying affection for each other:

seems to me you're missing the point; claiming any politician has "half a brain" could only be construed as a compliment! Shocked

Never said he HAS half or quarter of a brian - said he's a smart li'l bugger in his own way.

Said he LOOKS like he has a quarter of a brian.

Always knew owls couldn't read.

Trespassers William and Wol indeed!
