I guess the dingo didn't eat your baby.

In case you were unawares, back in the 1980's, an Australian family claimed that a dingo stole and ate their baby while she was asleep in a tent during a camping trip. Speculation arose and rumors flew that the parents actually killed their baby; the main rumor usually involved some crazy religious ritual. Dingo experts weighed in. The parents were eventually convicted and then released on appeal. Finally, they made a movie about it with Meryl Streep, which was eventually parodied on Seinfeld and in a Far Side comic. Which means that dingoes eating babies is now a funny concept, and not a grotesque one.

Suddenly, though, this lady comes along and claims to be the long lost eaten baby, with some convoluted back story about being rescued and adopted by an abusive religious sect. Read all about it.

But after seeing her picture, my theory is she was actually sired by dingoes, or at the very least raised by them:

Was that too mean? Dead baby dingo jokes are funny now, remember?

Hi Kris...

eek! I'd heard about her, but hadn't seen a pic.
Poor crazy woman.
Melbourne's Herald Sun ran with an article titled "Azaria Claim Bites." Bad pun, fellas.

Add my vote to the "sired" pile.

(what is it with the Aussie news this week?)

OOps, that second I hate you Brent was an accident. But this one isn't. I hate you Brent.

Of COURSE it's funny, have you not seen this?

My lovely newborn niece has it.

And I believe it's sired.

first comment from a lurker - now I suddenly get the name of the band ("Dingos ate my baby") in early Buffy the Vampire slayer episodes... cool fact of the day.

Did the dingo's tell her to get that scary haircut?

So,so scary

I don't believe she was sired by dingos, but I do believe she was drawn by Matt Groening.

The sign behind her (him/it) says it all... WAYOUT

By Blogger fizzy a.k.a. fifi, at 11:23 PM  

Omg...she looks absolutely terrified- like you could sneak up behind her and yelled "DINGO! ARRRGHHH!" and she'd piss herself. And maybe get a Mac in the process.
( really is a circle of life..)

Or maybe you could sneak up behind her and yell "DINGO!" and she'd give you a fresh Pillsbury crescent roll!

she reminds me of john brennan from the real world 2
sorry john i love you, but i think ifound your long lost sister, mullet and all!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2:04 PM  

I am glad to know that the mullet is alive and well down under.

I wonder if she has a Camaro on blocks in front of her abusive religious sect?

As the lady looks retarded or at least chronically sad / depressed, I think she was locked up in a small dark room and was sodomised for ten years without hearing any spoken language. So her assumed growling I guess is a result of underdevelopped neurons in the brain and not so much of puppy love.

I realise that this comment is so late as to be unfashionable but I just had to point out the similarity between dingo lady and the little dude to the very right in this comic strip

Or was *that* too mean?
