Big Balls - An AC/DC construct or a Mulroney and Schreiber reality?

"I've got big balls
Oh I've got big balls
And they're such big balls
Dirty big balls
And he's got big balls"
[Bon Scott, Big Balls]

"I wouldn't tell you no story
Tell you no lie"
[Bon Scott, Bad Boy Boogie]

So 16 months after he'd said he be there "with bells on" (a la Tinkerbell?), former PM Brian Mulroney gets to take the stand tomorrow at the Oliphant (aka ABA- Anything But Airbus) Inquiry.

Glad to hear he's been well "prepped". But as Coyne points out: "How much preparation does it take to tell the truth?"

Anyone want to take bets on the number of "memory loss" moments we are going to witness this week? Anyone?

Gotta give it to the two principal characters in this saga; Mulroney and Schreiber each have consistently demonstrated they are packing a set of humongously 'Big Balls'! Christ, it's a wonder either can walk, let alone talk straight. Oh, wait. Maybe they can't?

As co-dependent sufferers of LDNS (Large Dangling Nut Syndrome) it is entirely possible their shared condition explains much of what we've witnessed (and not heard) since 2007's misguided ethics inquiry. After all, if one's undies are perennially strangling one's nuts, it does (among other things) impede clarity. Presumably though, it should have no bearing on TRUTH.

Guess we will all get to see tomorrow if Mulroney's giganticus gonads in anyway "impair" either the truth or his memory?

Really, all we can do at his juncture is trust that our former PM (BM) will be as "candid" about this whole messy affair as he was about his governing style and drinking in his memoir. And, we should also trust that the fact Justice Oliphant was appointed to the bench in 1985 by PM BM will have no bearing on how he rules over this intrinsically even and fair process. Err, ... well except for the fact that Mulroney will (oddly?) have the advantage of facing his own lawyer, Guy Pratte, on his opening day of testimony. Yeah, well that aside, we can be assured that from here on in it's all on the up and up.

And, in other news... pigs fly!

  1. I absolutely love the title of your post. Tomorrow's testimony should be interesting, to say the least.
