The Latest from Larry Ellison’s Cheating Oracle Team USA’s HQ on Team New Zealand: “Just Beat The Fuckers”

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

So Oracle skipper Jimmy Spithill just Tweeted about something posted at OTUSA HQ for tout le monde to see.

It’s an image of the team noticeboard saying,

There is no “i” in: Just beat the Fuckers.”

Thusly:

I cry foul.

That’s hardly sporting, in’nt?

And the cheating scandal that Oracle is getting penalized for, that Oracle just might sue over after it loses, that was also about Problems with team management and also about lying to the International Jury, right?

San Francisco despises Larry Ellison for a reason or two, right?

FlavorPill.com Needs an American Editor in Australia – A $400 per Week Working Holiday

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Let’s review here - Tourism Queenland’s recent Best Job in the World promotion had some bloke getting paid $100k to be a caretaker on an Australian island. The whole thing was quite popular worldwide and some people figure that it got the Australian tourism industry eight figures worth of free advertising all told. (Or course, if you wanted to be considered seriously, it really helped to be young and cute, just like in the real world.)

All right. Today, comes now FlavorPill.com to offer you another job down under. They want you to apply by February 15th, 2010 to be their new part-time online editor in Melbourne (it’s near Cindy, I think) starting September 1, 2010. They’ll pick up your airfare and they’ll put you up for 12 days but it’ll be up to you to live on $400 a week for a year or whatever.

And, oh yes, you’ll need to qualify for a Working Holidays in Australia visa and that means you’ll need to be between 18 and 30 years old. So you have to be kind of young, but nobody will care what you look like. Bonus.

Just think, this could be you with a cute attentive beach kangaroo:

And this is how you’ll look surfing down under with your cute, attentive boyfriend:

This is something betwixt the best and worst jobs in the world. Keep that in mind as before you become one of the world’s highest-paid part-time bloggers (as you struggle to afford a daily cup of coffee.)

Its you:
