Okay you win - if only they'd called it Fiery Jack!  Geez if only those marketing blowhards had consulted us first!

Ummm, I faintly recall that I said Peter Sellers did a 'take' on the song.  :dunno:

Anyhow well spotted, but I still think even though the usage is a bit antiquated, the marketing team could have done better due diligence.  Which was my whole point - these antiquated terms have a habit of becoming current again and biting you on the arse.  Any old iron, ironically could have told you that.

I suppose Ginger Jack wouldn't really have worked.  What about Friend of Dorothy Jack?   Woolly Jack?  Payaso Jack?  Campy Jack?  Jack in the Box?  Jack with benefits?  Jack con amistad?

Brokeback Jack?

This was one of the arguments against the $120M waste of taxpayers money. Some of the NO campaigning has an 'earth is flat" type of approach

Exactly.  The $120M was to assuage the far right, and save Turnbull's  political skin - along with making potato head Dutton a 'Super Minister' in charge of all Australian intelligence services.

It's not that hard really.  I don't particularly care what other people do in the privacy of their own homes, and I find it rather suspicious the people who do care.  The fact is - the 'earth is flat' brigade are clearly outnumbered.  You'll never change their small bigoted minds, but you don't have to - we live in a democracy.

With this survey you have to make the best of the worst.   As the Electric Hippies say - come on everyone it's been two thousand years - it's almost here - we're nearly there.  So don't you know that it's cool?

Very cringing video.  He's lucky to be alive still in my opinion.  I've seen it happen before and it isn't pretty - they'll tolerate you and then they snap.  They usually keep a crowbar, or something like that - an equalizer.  Also Thai's are very quick when they decide you've crossed that invisible line.  They will kill you just like that in a blink of an eye and be entirely fatalistic about it - a bad demon got in my cab so naturally I had to slay it.  I watched as much of that video as I could stand.  Even if you can't talk Thai - the guy clearly wanted him out of the cab.  I hope this guy is reading this - because if you continue this behavior you'll be dead within a fortnight.

Perhaps a reprise of Brokeback mountain where Jack Twist a rodeo cowboy (Jake Gyllenhaal) goes on to play 'Iron Jack' in the Australian wilderness - to discover adventure - and let's face it, build his own personal legend over a campfire where he seduces young men on the flimsy excuse of a fishing trip.  How sordid.
