for another week. Hello and welcome to the War that has more boof-heads and morons The only show on TV

State of Origin. than the Rugby League in tonight, a great crowd. It's true and a great crowd those swine flu masks. A lot of them wearing

You can't be too careful, I suppose. But I can't get into them, Craig. They're not practical at all. Same. They're not very practical. I gave them a go the other day, for a bit of a romantic dinner I kind of went out it was just hard work. and, look, quite frankly I mean, very impractical, I found, at the end of the night - and as for the goodnight kiss

well, very unsatisfactory. Like usual then, yes. LAUGHTER They do have some good uses, though. on Lateline Like I notice Kevin Rudd uses his the words, "$300 billion deficit." to ensure no one ever hears him say in hundreds of billions of dollars? So what is the figure of peak debt I'm about to come to that, Tony. Yes, well, plain in the budget papers. The Treasurer made this absolutely (MUMBLES INDISTINCTLY) I said before, the figure was... the question, I think, Kevin. The point is that you're avoiding He's so evasive, so shy, that deficit figure. when it comes to admitting Yeah, he should. He should own it. I reckon he should wear it proudly. campaign T-shirts for him. We've even made up two new Instead of "Kevin '07", It's "Kevin 300 billion." APPLAUSE It's great. He'll be wearing it this winter. And for many years to come. But it's interesting to see swine flu how Rudd's actually trying to use away from the economy. to distract everyone's attention So this week, out a swine flu advertisement. the Government predictably rushed VOICEOVER: The flu and you. the recent outbreak The Government is closely monitoring in Australia. of human swine influenza If you are unwell, close contact with others. seek medical advice and try to avoid Try to avoid contact with others? all our work and business They're suggesting we carry out on the telephone. for the nurse there in the ad, Now, look, that may be fine but what about other professions? this week, I know. We went to see a play

alongside each other on stage. and the actors weren't allowed in from home. They had to phone their performances dear friend. Once more! Once more unto the breach,

with our English dead. Or close the wall up of the Government advertisement One of the other features have you seen this? is thermal imaging, They carry it out in airports now. when they get off the plane. Everyone gets scanned this stuff. The technology is quite amazing, But thermal imaging doesn't only show caught from Mexican pigs, if you're suffering from a disease if you are suffering from a bashing it can also pick up by the NSW pigs. LAUGHTER Much more deadly, too, I believe. Oh yeah. there was at least one bright note But amid all the fear and illness, Mexican swine flu saga. in this whole Mexican swine started it. We finally found out which CHEERING AND APPLAUSE And to think he thinks we're racist. Where does he get that from? I know. he's not actually Mexican. It's because

time now for a brand new segment Alright, this season. which we're keen to try out We like to call it: Oh, yes it's true.

Julian Morrow, ladies and gentlemen. Look at that.

CROWD CHANTS They're doing the Julian chant. Don't encourage him. It's not that big a deal. It's just a man on a couch. So what have you got for us, Jules? Craig. Well, I wanted to start off big, the White House itself. So this week, it's straight from that he wants to send President Obama has announced

to Australia. a bunch of Guantanamo Bay prisoners Send all your prisoners here? some kind of dumping ground? What are we, You're not Britain, Obama. actually running out of places OK, the problem is that America's where they're holding without trial. to keep the War on Terror prisoners Guantanamo Bay. So, you know, it's not just the American intelligence agency - You know the CIA - secret prisons they've actually been operating in a number of foreign countries. terror suspects secretly Yeah, this is where they move do dodgy stuff like waterboarding. so they can torture them and to find out about this. And they didn't want anyone It's very hush-hush. these secret prisons down. Obama actually wants to close because they're not secret anymore. To be honest, I think that's just

CIA secret prisons Yeah, now one of the most notorious is hidden in a military base way up in the north of Poland. Now the Government there flatly denies that the prison exists but the Poles haven't exactly nailed the "secret" aspect of the secret prisons. They clearly need a hand covering it up again, Julian. They do indeed. So I went to Poland to help them keep a little lid on their dirty little secret. LAUGHTER

Mind you, I didn't want the CIA to get lost. So I put up some more helpful signs right outside the prison so that the CIA knows where to take the people to torture, although, in a subtle way so Poland can still deny it. Very good. Very subtle. Thank you very much. Now look, once the CIA's inside the secret prison, obviously they've got some pretty serious torture work to do, they need to be left alone, in peace, They don't want people interrupting their important waterboarding. So I gave Poland one last bit of help with their unconvincing cover-up. Good afternoon and welcome to Stare Kiejkuty. Unfortunately, there will be no tour of the CIA secret prison here this afternoon as there is no secret prison on these premises. Never has been. The CIA have definitely, I repeat, definitely never interrogated

or tortured people at this facility. Repeat - no tour. No facility. No torture. To make this very - and this is not a member of the Polish military. This is not happening. I am not here. And I am not speaking to this person. Hello. LAUGHTER

What is this? Polish. Polish? I don't speak Polish. No, sorry. I don't speak Polish, no.

LAUGHTER THEME MUSIC VOICEOVER: Leonardo Da Vinci. Vincent Van Gogh. Pablo Picasso.

Alongside these names now must also belong C.M. Coolidge - one of the great artists of our time, whose paintings of dogs playing parlour games rank among the most celebrated masterpieces of the modern era. Now what a lot of people don't realise about Coolidge,

is that it took him a long, long time to perfect his craft. He experimented with many other animals. He painted frogs playing poker. Toucans playin poker. His series of woolly mammoths playing Gin Rummy was simply laughed at and ridiculed. But when he hit on the idea of dogs, it was an overnight success. As this rare film archive shows, Coolidge was a traditionalist

when it came to using life models as a basis for his paintings. You've just got to learn how to grip that cue. That's good. It sometimes took hours, even days, to get the dogs comfortable with their cigars and bowler hats. No! Don't pee on the table. What did I say about peeing on the table, huh? Well, he was a perfectionist. There's no doubt about that. But what people don't know,

is that he was not the first artist to use dogs in this way. CHURCH CHOIR SINGS If you look at the preparatory studies for the Sistine Chapel, You'll notice that Michaelangelo originally had God touch a dog, smoking a pipe. Similarly, in the last supper, Leonardo Da Vinci had Christ sitting at the table playing a game of dog poker. But it's the images of Coolidge that have stood the test of time. And his iconic contributions to the American art landscape

beyond doubt have truly established him of our time. as one of the great artists No, come on!

APPLAUSE To health and diet news now. what he eats, And I'm a guy who tries to watch recent weight loss announcement so naturally I was drawn to this from the San Diego Zoo.

the zoo's elephants CHAS: Yeah, this is the one about on a this new healthy diet who were so overweight they put them losing hundreds of kilos each. and apparently they've ended up Yeah, and one of the elephants the cover of Woman's Day this week. even bumped Magda Szubanski off Quite an achievement. Now apparently the secret behind this new elephant diet is to eat lots and lots of hay. That's all the elephants were allowed to eat. Three square meals of hay a day. Sounds pretty simple to me and if it works for elephants,

why wouldn't it work for people too? So I hit the fat-fried streets of America

to see if I could convert them to the all-new Dumbo Diet.

The elephants in San Diego Zoo have lost over 2,000 pounds in the last eight years each by eating hay. So we are helping people lose weight as hay sandwiches. by feeding them such treats Yeah. It's OK. LAUGHTER So how would you describe the taste? LAUGHTER How does that taste?

This is hay bolognaise. Try that. AUDIENCE GROANS How's that? It's good. It's pretty good. All natural. following this diet, sir? Could you see yourself Yeah? Yeah. LAUGHTER Ah, yeah, sure. Have one to go. Yeah, yeah. You could try some hay drink. All the best bits of hay. Puts back all the hay that the sweat takes out. Yeah. I kind of need a wider bottle. A few teething problems. The goodness is coming out. There we go. Tastes like water with hay. But does it taste good? No. AUDIENCE LAUGHTER AND GROANING What do you think? Why is that, ma'am? LAUGHTER If you want to lose a lot of weight an elephant. you need to eat more like Which is why they invented this. apparatus. This is an advanced feeding and you eat like an elephant. You strap this over your head in the apparatus like so All you do is simply insert it yourself a full body workout and when you suck it up you give you actually consume. while reducing the amount Give it a try, sir.

LAUGHTER THEME MUSIC VOICEOVER: In a world without justice, (PLAYS BADLY) WOMAN: He has the muscular dystrophy

I love your son and there is nothing to make a movie Why a film director dared Academy Awards. shamelessly design to win Quick! Down to the cellar. The Nazis are coming. about what the Academy likes. Based on true market research I may a gay wheelchair-bound Jew. And simple. And a bit mentally simple, yah? Penn or Daniel Day-Lewis ever again! But I will not be beaten by Sean ALL: Yeah!

I can wear this fake prosthetic nose, too, if it helps. Oscar Bait. Coming soon to cinemas everywhere. No. Die! They can take my chair, but they cannot take my Oscar! THEME MUSIC CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC VOICEOVER: Emergencies can strike when you least expect them. So if you need assistance from police, ambulance or fire brigade, then call the emergency chatline. EROTIC MUSIC Dozens of fun, single ladies FEMALE VOICEOVER: to take your emergency call. are standing by Hello? Help me. I need an ambulance. What are you wearing? I'm trapped under a tree - What?

The emergency chat line, call now. I need the fire brigade! No! I don't want a blow job, CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Yes, in this recession everyone's obviously trying to tighten their belts. So here's a few little inside tips to help you survive the doom and gloom. Yeah, and the first thing you need to know is that money's not actually that hard to get. There is free money lying around everywhere. Take, for instance, public fountains. They carry hundreds of dollars and if you've got the right equipment it's all yours. CHRIS: Easy pickings. to save money in a recession. Scoring food is another great way most days of the week. Supermarkets offer free food tastings paying for food And why would you ever bother for free like this? when they're just giving it away You can go back as often as you like from earlier. so long as they don't recognise you Can I have one of those, please? My second time? No, I'm very new. (SPEAKING WITH INDIAN ACCENT) Thank you very much. some pretty elaborate disguises Although after a while you do need to make this work. LAUGHTER (NEIGHS) LAUGHTER Can I have some cheese, please? LAUGHTER (NEIGHS) CHEERING AND APPLAUSE But if you want some serious cash

you just can't go past a Greek wedding. You just get your mate to distract the bride for a second and as soon as she's got her back turned

it's the biggest payday you'll ever have. And if you're still feeling a bit short after that, our final rock solid tip is to head on down to a restaurant strip and pretend to be a waiter for their bill. when people are trying to pay Hello, love. You can't wait to get it, can you? Hi.

It's $53.40 plus the tip. (LAUGHS) Who says we're giving you a tip? Thank you. Thank you. Thanks. LAUGHTER CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Too easy. Too easy.

"No, not a single penny."

Or "Yes..." Not a single penny. "..but only if she agrees to spend it all on plastic surgery." LAUGHTER What a question. Um, not to give her nothing but get some plastic surgery.

Immigrants. Immigrants? Druggies. Druggies? LAUGHTER What about students, immigrants or Aussie backpackers? Immigrants. Yeah, I think immigrants. LAUGHING AND APPLAUSE Love the immigrants, don't they? Very, very fond of immigrants. Very open society. I do like the idea, though, about leasing rooms at Buckingham Palace, 'cause she does have a lot of space there. It's a tight rental market.

when I tried to put those spare bedrooms on the market. GOD SAVE THE QUEEN PLAYS LAUGHTER 775 rooms available, everyone. Share with quiet, elderly couple. LAUGHTER Accept French. Prefer Germans, though. Would you like to get a room here, sir? You probably have to put up with a few taunts from Prince Philip, but other than that it will be fine. How much is it? Look, they'll take whatever they can get at the moment. They're a bit...a bit hard up. You don't ever dress up in a Nazi uniform, do you? Sometimes. Sometimes?

They don't sleep together anymore, so that's two rooms gone, but other than that... Why is that? I thought the Queen was living in there. Yeah, the Queen is living there. She's part of the elderly couple. There you go. Excuse me? Can you give us a hand? I've just got to show this guy the room. I just gotta show him the room. He really wants to see it. I'm not getting a lot of bites.

Can I show him the room? Would you like to come speak to me?

Yeah, I am. I am. Just like to get in.

Are you gonna take us to the back exit? Come here, mate. He's gonna show us the room. We just want to keep it within the dignity of the palace. Yeah, we did quite a nice sign, I think. We tried to make it up a bit.

I think it's quite within the dignity of the palace. So what are you actually getting to today? Sorry? What is the point of you being here today? Well, we were hoping to show this guy around. He's quite interested. You still interested, mate? Why not? As you can see, it comes with security here which is a bit of a bonus as well. But, uh, yeah. If we can have a look, that'd be good. LAUGHTER Do you want the room? LAUGHTER Hmm? What's your name? Craig Reucassel. Want to follow me? Yep. What I want you to do is take that sign down immediately. OK, so the room's taken?
