That was mildly creepy.

Stupid ad gets in the way…

The only thing that could have embarrassed the speech-giver more is if a kangaroo suddenly attacked the speaker right then and there.

And here I thought the Brits were the ones with the lousy food…

Watch the guy seated to the right. He’s the hair eater, not the guy giving the speech.

Both of those men are Labor MPs in the opposition, which would explain that one is a weird hair eater. The guy speaking meanwhile formally represents Batman, because Australia is awesome like that.

Australia is lucky. I’d rather we had a government of hair eaters where even the left (well now that the electorate has cleansed them of some of their crazies) sounds as if they have a thorough understanding of modern Western history and it’s traditions of freedom, than the bunch of crooks and thieves in our current administration.

No, I knew the hair eater was on the bottom right (“Stupid ad gets in the way”) It’s just that, everybody should be attentive to the speaker as he’s talking about important things, not eating parts of their body casually. Bleuh.

Alright, cool. I bet you $50 the Smails kid picks his nose.

Was it a hair, or was he picking nits? That one was just dug in a little?

It’s the circle of life, Simba.

One of my professors used to pluck his eyebrows with his fingers during the weekly colloquium. I don’t think he ate them, though.

I had a teacher in middle school who, in the middle of class, would go into her closet, shut the door and then emerge wearing a different outfit. And not mention anything about it. This happened fairly often.

There is a psychological condition that causes people to do that. I knew a teenage girl who ate herself bald including her eyebrows.
