ATW Continues To Grow

By ATWadmin On April 30th, 2007

Flag_of_Australia.svg.pngFollowing commentators’ comments asking for a more female voice on ATW, perhaps in the hope that a more effeminate voice would moderate our rabidly pro-right, pro-Christian (mostly) view. So we thought about it, and decided that introducing another female blogger would be a good idea. With this in mind, Dee of Righteous Indignation is joining us here at ATW, hopefully to post her first post later today.

Though, being as she’s an Aussie blogger, her ‘later today’ and ours might be a little different. Still, I’m sure the contributions, when they come, will be sufficiently cage-rattling to keep the readership interested, so please do make her welcome as a new member of our ATW crusade/heresy gang.

  1. Welcome Dee. Looking forward to reading your contributions.

  2. Dee. congrats! look forward to your posts.

  3. Hi all. Looking forward to the fun. I’ve been an admirer of this blog for a while.

  4. Welcome, Dee!

    Refreshing to have a God-fearing peep here. I’ve noticed an insidious atheism creeping into ATW of late. Time to set things on the straight and narrow.

  5. Welcome Dee: You can finally put to rest the debate that has raged here for the last several months – the origin of the vegemite sandwich.

    Dawkins: don’t you missionaries ever take a day off?

  6. LOL Dawkins…

  7. Christian fundys are taking over!!!

    We’ll have a Christianophate before we know it… 😉

  8. –J0nz–

    You really think so? Oh, excellent! My wishes are granted! 🙂

  9. Mahons,

    "Dawkins: don’t you missionaries ever take a day off?"

    What have I said wrong now? :0(

  10. nothing. It was a jest.

  11. Jest as well :0)

  12. Dawkins – You may replace Colm as the punleader.

  13. Mahons,

    I don’t know if I should be pleased. You noticed it "explained" my first post too, didn’t you? :0)

    With your recent output I think your ahead of me on that score. I knew Dee would be joining us when David asked her on the ‘Is homosexuality a sin’ thread if she had recieved his email. It’s a giveaway sign that someone has been selected to join the ATW inner sanctum.

  15. Colm,

    Isn’t being invited to the ‘Inner Sanctum’ a bit like converting from a purely amateur status, to becoming a ‘professional’?

    It almost implies some sort of obligation, at least to attempting some sort of competence, of presentation and content, if not of frequency.

    All rather like the Varsity cricket matches between Players and Gentlemen, all equally as competent, but with slightly different perspectives.

  16. Colm: The telltale sign.

    As far as ATW is concerned being asked to join the nner sanctum is just David’s way of saying "You seem like someone with a competent knowledge of the English lannguage and the ability to annoy liberals, come on board".

  18. Should be good to hear an Australian perspective, particularly as the Aussies have a reputation for not mincing their words! So welcome, Dee!

  19. Colm,

    Isn’t that what I said?

    Talking of competence in the language….did I mention that neat little in-line spellchecker called ieSpell

    http://www.iespell.com it’s free, small and quick to use.

  20. A New Zealand Australian joke

    New Zealanders have strangely muffled vowels — unlike any European country. "Fish" is pronounced something like "Fsh". The joke below mocks such speech. The background to the joke is that New Zealanders tend to have an inferiority complex towards Australians — a lot like the Canadian attitude to the USA

    Helen Clarke, Prime Minister of New Zulland, is rudely awoken at 4am by the telephone.

    "Hillen, its the Hilth Munister here. Sorry to bother you at this hour but there is an emergency! I’ve just received word thet the Durex fectory en Auckland has burned to the ground. It is istimated thet the entire New Zulland supply of condoms will be gone by the ind of the week."

    PM: "Shut – the economy wull niver be able to cope with all those unwanted babies – wi’ll be ruined!"

    Hilth Munister: "We’re going to hef to shup some in from abroad… Brutain?…"

    PM: "No chence!! The Poms will have a field day on thus one!"

    Hilth Munister: "What about Australia?"

    PM: "Maybe – but we don’t want them to know thet we are stuck."

    Hilth Munister: "You call John Howard – tell hum we need one moollion condoms; ten enches long and eight enches thuck! That way they’ll know how bug the Kiwis really are!!"

    Helen calls John, who agrees to help the Kiwis out in their hour of need.

    Three days later a plane arrives in Auckland – full of boxes.

    A delighted Hillen rushes out to open the boxes. She finds condoms; 10 unches long; 8 unches thuck, all coloured green and gold. She then notices in small writing on each and ivery one………
