The Guardian is reporting that the Australian Navy will be getting a two-month holiday over Christmas. Now is the time to invade, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. I plan to rename the country `Hutchland,' I will make my capital at Coober Pedy, and Elle McPherson shall be my Queen.

What? You're not going to be the Queen? What will we do . . .?

Say, can I be your Second in Command? Then we can expand and take over New Zealand, which is really where I'd rather be.

Coober Pedy used to have some lovely black opals in its mines. I wonder if the mines have yielded all their bounty?

Of course you can be Second-in-Command, glad to have you aboard. I have my eye on New Zealand, as well. Also Tasmania and Antarctica. Antarctica should be a walkover; they don't have any armed forces.
I don't know whether Coober Pedy is mined-out yet or not - I suspect not. As Second-in-Command, you would of course have sole mineral rights. I just wanted my capital there because that's where they filmed Beyond Thunderdome and it looks well cool.

Mad Hutch, Road Warrior King of Coober Pedy and Beyond.

Antarctica has Emperor Penguins, hasn't it? And hot headed moles that can burrow up through the snow and ice and eat a man alive where he stands.

I'll take the Coober Pedy detail, thanks muchos.

And why shouldn't he be? After all, if you're going to do this right, it's a matter of paying tribute to the greatest Australian road movie ever made.

By the way, are we all in Montana now? Did I miss the move? How'd it go?

Poor Bogna. Left out in the cold!

Can I be third-in-command? Pretty please?

Mm. That was rather Freudian and ungallant of me, wasn't it? Still, my fantasy.
Of course you can be third-in-command. How does Chancellor Of The Exchequer grab you?

This reminds me of an episode of the classic Canadian television program The Red Green Show, when an errant missile lands almost literally on top of the title character. Red immediately asks his nephew Harold to call the Canadian Air Force, and Harold screams back "I can't do that! It's Friday night, and he's gone home for the weekend!" The Czarina had no idea why I was laughing so hard at that one throwaway line until the first time she visited Alberta.

The way things are going over here, it won't be long before that describes our Air Force.

You might've almost pulled it off...until you named your Queen. Bogna is so gonna pull the plug on this. The toilet lemmings won't stand a chance.
Hugs and grins and much gleeful rubbing of hands,

You mean Bogna's going to give him Elle?

Or not, as the case may be.

*sigh* It's true. The Elder Ones could not stand against us, but Bogna's a different proposition.
