Fact Check who?
Only the Coalition, silly!
See, this joking business is fun and easy, but alas, quite beyond your average ABC humourist if Wednesday Night Fever is any indication. Amongst its other Labor-ed moments, and there were many, many of those, the show devoted a short segment to a pair of Kiwi inverts discussing their pending union. What fun! Thick accents, beanies, beer cans on the coffee table, moron grins and inbred absurdities. You can view the segment by going here and skipping through to the 15.50 mark of the video. The skit's protagonists and their set are freeze-framed below.
Now observe two other characters, Bob and Doug McKenzie, who hailed from Canada and appeared on American TV several decades ago. Notice any similarities?
Actually, there is one big difference.
Bob and Doug were put to air by a commercial network intent on amusing viewers, selling advertising time and making money. By contrast, their apishly copied Kiwi counterparts represent the ABC's primary mission, which is to spend public money without a concomitant obligation to produce a measurable return.
That must be why the McKenzie brothers are funny and the Kiwi couple anything but.
