The F Words part 2

Seems like I'm not the only one to get all stabby when I see a Foxtel ad.

After bitching about the Foxtel Foxmas/FuckMiss sale and their previous EOFYS effort, I found this while surfing the net doing some research. It's a parody on the EOFYS ad and you can watch it here.

If you really want to go insane, you can watch the original here.

The views and dances on that ad in no way reflect the dancing and viewing talents of MIA.

Meanwhile, you'll be thrilled to know that I've finally had the pleasure of actually seeing the FuckMiss ad. It's even more difficult to endure on the telly, than it is on the car stereo.

I couldn't find a copy of the FuckMiss ad online, let alone a parody of it, but if you know of any, send them through to me.

Speaking of scary, I thought I'd share a few photos from our first Aussie Halloween.
Miss 7 looks like she is giving the finger, but I think she is only showing off her witch's nails

Mr 9, on a normal day dressed as a zombie
We put our own Queensland touch to Halloween by carving a watermelon instead of a pumpkin. The kids took great pleasure in scooping out the flesh, and Mr 9 did the carving.

It was even scarier after dark ...

Readers what things shit, scare or mess with you?

I have never seen the watermelon been done before I think you are SERIOUSLY on to something. (especially for us in the desert who pay a freaking fortune at Halloween to get pumpkins).

I'm clueless to the foxtel ad but I'm coming back to re read your post's to see what I've missed. I'm your latest follower!

Great costumes and make-up! Mr.9 is freaky. What a great idea to carve the watermelon. Didn't realize it could look way scarier (probably due to its reddish insides) than a pumpkin. Have a great week!

Thanks all. Yes, the watermelon was an inspired choice, I believe. (Initially because I couldn't afford the exhorbitant prices they were charging for Halloween pumpkins here). But I wanted it to have an Aussie touch too. And guess what? The watermelon is so much easier to dig the flesh out and carve than a pumpkin. (And the melon flesh can be turned into juices or sorbet).

I agree with everyone...I think you're on to something. Watermelons are far tastier than pumpkins too. Although you can't roast the seeds...
