A 1981 report in the Brisbane Courier Mail states the following: A colleague ... swears this is really how the lamington came about. At one stage when Baron Lamington was Queensland Governor, there was a large amount of stale cake in the Government House kitchen. In an attempt to make it palatable, the cake was dipped in chocolate and then tossed in desiccated coconut. The parliamentarians liked this 'gateau' and ordered their cooks to obtain the recipe from the Government House cook.
Ironically, Lord Lamington was known to have hated the dessert that had been named in his honour, once referring to them as "those bloody poofy woolly biscuits".

"It's an Internet Party, and all your favorite websites are there!"
Yeah yeah, it's juvenile but still made me laugh. And yes, I had to look up "blunken" via Urban Dictionary to find out what was going on.

just on the news here: the christian parties in our government are protesting against a porn movie on one of the public tv channels that's going to be broadcasted in combination with a documentary about the history of porn--
and the next item on the news: in the USA showing a butt on tv leads to major fines!

I love the guy with the unexplained shaving foam on his face.
