The Chaser's War on Everything tonight

    Hey Aussies, did you see the Chaser tonight? They were making amends for their piece of unacceptable satire from two weeks ago. Helping old ladies across the road, removing Andre Reiu's book stand from the local book shop and... putting a large CLOSED FOREVER sign on the crazy space cadet looney cult led by a science fiction writer - you guessed it - Sydney Org, on National TV.

    Scn bashing is mainstream entertainment. What fun.

    I think you can view the program from the ABC's web site. Just google Aunty and follow the links to the Chaser.

    I caught it last night and it was hilarious - it sounded like the HAS Syd F next to the guy asking him "What are you doing?" as he plastered this huge "Closed For Ever" sign across the front doors.

    They've had quite a few digs at the cult before - one was when they set up a portable chiro table outside James Packer's offices and offered him a nerve assist as he walked into the building one morning - to his credit, he just laughed.

    I don't know why you'd have to be an Aussie to watch this. Here is the link. The bit on Scientology is just near the beginning of the full episode. It's part of their "amends" for an episode that got them banned from the air for 2 weeks. It's f******g hilarious. Someone from overseas tell me if you can view it. I don't know how to download and put on youtube but someone more computer savvy might be able to do it.

    Edit: oops! Didn't see the last posts. Shoulda checked after mucking around finding it.

    Great! - That one was posted back when.. There's a woman, an 'official from the church' who's not taking KSW and Hubbard's PR policies too seriously. She's smiling and laughing delightfully.

    Is she by any chance here on ESMB now? - I would suspect so..

    No she's not on ESMB, Schwimmy (not as a member we know and trust, anyway). - She knows her stuff, she knows "The Chaser" is popular here, and that the PR thing to do, is to laugh along with them while they are doing one of their stunts.

    Her name is Virginia. She is still very much "in", and she is an OSA player who has been trying to create some grief for more than a few of us here, in these last months.

    Hmm.. I'm disappointed..

    Well, in that case.. Let's be thankful that CoS PRO's aren't as good as she is in general.

    Yeah, same with me in the UK. I thought it might work to use an Australian proxy, like, but it didn't work for me.
