It's very hard to say exactly what is a polite public norm in Australia today

I think it goes something like this, anything that takes the mickey out of Tony Abbott, Gina Rinehart, Clive Palmer or conservatives in general is OK.

Yesterday the conniptions were out and about, most of the nation's media had at least one about the vile, disgusting, filthy misogynist menu du dejeuner from the Brisbane restaurant.

We now know it was a private bad joke and you'll have your own view about why it was spread around.

Today, The Age publishes this.   Anyone help me with the explanation for the children about when it's OK to make private part jokes and about whom?
