So as most of you know, I do a weekly Refried comic for games.on.net. My editor found this week’s comic delightful (Pure gold, mate) and in fact liked it so much that he showed it to his manager – which turned out to be a bad move. She decided that it was possibly so contentious that it had to go all the way up the chain to the CEO of Internode to make a decision on – and he said no. Given that its subject matter is a South Australian politician and Internode is an Adelaide-based ISP, they decided it wasn’t a good idea to go upsetting the establishment.
But, under the terms of my contract and as a private citizen of an entirely different state, there’s nothing stopping me from publishing it myself, and a lot of people have been asking for it, so here you go.

OMG It is comedy Gold!!!
Thank you for at least giving it a go Tim!
It is sort of ironic censoring a cartoon critisising someone for censorship!
Wow that’s completely gutless of Internode – there is absolutely no legal reason why they couldn’t publish this – Australian defamation law clearly includes “fair comment” and “satire” as protections, so you’re fine with this comic. Your employers obviously missed this rather crucial detail in their journalism training, if indeed they have any. 😛
Damn excellent comic dude.. 🙂
I didn’t know that, but I’m glad I do now. Is there an RSS feed or static URL for it?
I giggled, and I don’t know anything about A. Politics B. Australia C. Australian Politics D. What someone would have to bring with them in order to neuter a dog.
AND P.S. You know that card/package I’ve been meaning to send, like, for the past four years? Yeah. Still workin’ on it. >_>; My bad.
