Australia vs Alabama Celebrity Death Match

In the latest version of There Was An Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly (or Chad Gadya for my Jewish and/or Passover-aware readers), US comedian Robin Williams has upset Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, who in turned has pissed off Alabama’s Governor Bob Riley (Barack Obama has yet to chime in). I guess we should just be glad that Mr Rudd’s hearing is back to normal and he heard the comments.

Here’s the Robin Williams appearance on David Letterman that started the whole brouhaha.

You be the judge: Funny or offensive?

For the record, as an Aussie and Robin Williams fan, I was not offended in the slightest and think it’s Mork ado about nothing.
