Cultural sabotage?

Posted by Dave Bath on 2008-05-18

It’s either sad or hilarious… my post KRudd becomes Big Brother got picked up here (right next to a post of "Robert in the shower" – shudder to think what that is) by a website devoted to that horrible TV show and the bogans who watch it.

I guess they didn’t do any lexical analysis of the post.

Go on folks, start writing critical reviews of Orwell and Koestler, discuss the implications of the Patriot Act or the European Parliament’s inquiry into Echelon, give anyone who links to your critique a nasty bit of culture shock!  (If those bogan basolectals can understand acrolect, that is!)

This is actually has a picture of a 1984 book cover, points to this and includes the text…

Fingered by whistleblower’s Mark Klein and Babak Pasdar for their role in illegally spying on Americans, AT&T and Verizon were awarded a major contract by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)"
