    Here’s one for JS: ostrobogulous.

    I’ve just found a quotation in wikipedia, in the article on the Krag rifle. A century ago the US marines sang a little song about the Philipino, including the lines “Underneath the starry flag/Civilize them with a Krag”.

    Plus ca change (see Ken Macleod’s blog for some recent details from Fallujah). Does anyone have a full quotation for that song before I go searching?

    Anybody else a little disturbed by the appointment of Janet “Skanky Ho” Albrechtsen to the board of the ABC?
