How Dare Ye!

Former Iraqi hostage and pissed-off Swede Ulf Hjertstrom has hired bounty hunters to track down and kill those who held him and Australian Douglas Wood hostage. Sounds like we need to hire Ulf’s buddies for use against the insurgency.

The good news is, for $50,000, Ulf’s boys might just get the job done. However, all is not coming up roses Down Under.

Pants-shitting leftist editor-in-chief of Australia’s The Age newspaper, Andrew Jaspan, was appalled when recently-released hostage Douglas Wood used the horrific term asshole to describe his sub-human captors.

Said Jaspan: “I was, I have to say, shocked by Douglas Wood’s use of the a—hole word, if I can put it like that, which I just thought was coarse and very ill-thought through and I think demeans the man and is one of the reasons why people are slightly sceptical of his motives and everything else.

“The issue really is largely, speaking as I understand it, he was treated well there. He says he was fed every day, and as such to turn around and use that kind of language I think is just insensitive.”

I suppose people were very skeptical of Woods’ motives, considering he was a fucking hostage, waiting to have his head sawed off with a rusty knife in the name of the religion of peace. I question Woods’ motivation as well, I must say.

The best possible thing that could happen to Jaspan is to make his own trip to Iraq, and be taken hostage. I’m sure he’ll be treated well – he would be fed every day – perhaps they’ll make him a nice veggie falafel. I would just hope, in Jaspan’s case, that we wouldn’t waste any time or manpower in rescuing him. Because he and his mentally-deranged ilk aren’t worth rescuing. In fact, they’re not worth a shit.

  2. The next time I hear an Aussie talk about how American Football isn’t a “real sport” because the players wear padding, not like the “real sport” of “Australian Rules Football,” I’ll bring him to his knees by whispering “arsehole.” I thought that island nation was supposed to be composed of hard guys.

  3. Hmmmm Asshole…. ..Insurgients.. .decisions, decisions.. .I think because of my Kansas Redneck spelling abilities, Asshole is much easier and more to the point. Why take a ten dollar word to describe a $.50 action.
    I also read where the Aussie was thinking about hiring bounty hunters too.
    I wonder what Dog the bounty hunter would charge?

  4. He’s appalled? Heeeeee’s appalled? This is the same jagoff who prolly uses the same ad-homonyms when reffering to GWB at dinner parties. He’s only prudish about the word when it describes the side he’s rooting for. “The Age” has been rooting for the wrong side for far too long.
