Hallelujah, the transcendental Oreo has returned ...



Well I heard there was a secret chord 
That the Oreo played and it pleased the Lord 
But you don't really care for music, do you? 
Well it goes like this: the fourth, the fifth 
The minor fall and the major lift 
The baffled Oreo composing Hallelujah Hallelujah 
Your faith was strong but you needed proof 
You saw her for the reptiles scribbling truth
Her beauty and her columns overthrew you 
She tied you to her kitchen chair 
She broke your throne and she cut your hair 
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, the Oreo has returned and as usual, she sets the tone for the lizard Oz this day ...


Well she's one step below the Donald chucking a violent, aggressive tanty, and dinkum Aussie cricket in peril, but the holy trinity needs its Holy Ghost and what a delicious Monday presence she is ...

Somewhere between this Germanic outpouring of good taste ...


... and this twist on American 'the Donald' vulgarian taste ... does it come with cinnamon?


But wait, the Oreo splash deserves its own moment in the sun, so it can take pride of pond place ...


So true, so true, you godless heathens, you wretched barbarians ...

As for the rest, the pond is going to stand in awed silence, reverently staring at clouds passing in the sky ...


Now it seems that the pond has suddenly become neo-Marxist, but here's a curious fact.

If you search the Oreo piece, here's the company the reptiles now care to keep ...


Yep, google thinks it's pretty much close kissing cousin to biblesforamerica, or kin to the deep concerns of the Anabaptist Christian Mennonite church of South Bend Illinois ...

Lordy, lordy, She does work in mysterious ways, and what rejoicing and dancing in the streets that the Oreo has returned this Monday to warn of the hideous Satanic forces at work in our midst ...


Confronted by this outpouring of insights from one of the top ten minds available anywhere in universities around the world, a Herculean figure whose texts are frequently studied by students in search of meaning, the pond is speechless ...

Of course none of this need be connected to reality, or the actual history of ideas - why would the reptiles give a toss about such matters when the live in a cocoon of intellectual bubble wrap? - and none need mention what actually happened in Greece and Rome centuries before Christianity came along, or the taking over of old Testament Jewish tropes and the turning of them to Christian account. This is just one of the many modern miracles the Oreo can accomplish ...

And with that, usually the pond would just wrap up proceedings, perhaps with a treat of an American kind...


... or  perhaps with a relevant cartoon ...


Oh no, not Polonius... 

And there could be more word play about Holy Joes and Holy Rollers and the rapture and all the rest of the guff, but perhaps it's best just to rely on a very funny Rowe for the final word on Oreo's offer of salvation, with the coming together in common cause of neo-Marxist and fundamentalist Catholic - all miracles are possible! - with more delicious Rowe here ...

  1. I will be expecting the Oreo on my doorstep clutching a fist full of pamphlets, keen to save my soul. I'm guessing that doctorate didn't have anything to do with history.

  2. Well I heard there was a secret chord

    Oh my, featuring the other guy who should have shared the Nobel, DP.

    "Australia was created as a nation under God. Soon it will fall."

    Well my understanding is that Australia was founded by the British Penal System abetted by the Royal Navy. And also, I've never seen any reliable witness reports of "God" (Parts I, II, or II) attending the inaugural meeting of the Australian federal parliament which was on 9th May 1901 (9th May is the right and proper date for Australia Day, not 'invasion fleet landing day' on 26 January)

    "Across the West, governments are withdrawing funding from Christian groups ..."

    D'you reckon those governments might just also withdraw tax exemption from Christian groups ? Or alternatively, grant tax exemption to "no religion" groups ? Or both ?

    But The Oreo and friends sure are busy creating a totally imaginary history, aren't they. Just fancy us "losing God": an immortal, immanent, omnipotent, omniscient, three part wonder like God can be "lost" ? Oh noze, that could never be so, could it ? And will it be "the fire this time" ? The "fire" of radically increased temperature brought on by global warming - and the god-bothering reptiles are denying this condign punishment being sent down from God.

    1. Good point - very keen to dismiss well documented peer reviewed science & just as keen to believe in a vengeful, invisible super being.

      Who is this 'God' chap that everyone keeps going on about?

  3. So Mathew was a free market capitalist!.....shame on you Dorothy, never once in your Sunday meditations did you pass this knowledge on, you naughty neo-Marxist.
    I am shattered.
    All jokes aside, the Oreo is seriously damaged and disturbed.
    Just to annoy her and her Manifest Destiny rant.....a Muslim observation.

    1. Kamran Pasha: "The vast resources and open space provided by this new continent provided the chance for an entire civilization to be built from scratch".

      Yet more imaginary history ! Even a few of the benighted citizens of the good ol' USA are beginning to realize that their civilization "built from scratch" is just a poor man's copy of England, with an elected (and limited tenure since FDR's days) President instead of a King and an "elected" Senate instead of a hereditary House of Lords.

    3. Well the truth can bear a lot of repetition I guess, but ...

      Anyway, what I meant to say was "a poor man's copy of England under George III" when a king was still a King, much like the American President was becoming - until now.

  4. "..nation under God.."?: sounds like the cream cookie is transcribing U.S Tea Party talking points, verbatim, again
