Battle royal - Cooper v Thwaites

Published:Thursday | November 8, 2018 | 12:07 AM


Billie Jean 'Cooper' v Bobby Riggs 'Thwaites' in the Battle of the Sexes!

October 21, 2018: Mr Thwaites came to the match dressed neatly and maybe naively in his tennis whites. However, soon after 'Patois Activism' started,

Ms Cooper's hackles were up.

October 28, 2018: Ms Cooper would not have her patriotic Patois position muddied. She quickly steadied her aim from her safe aerie and launched a volley of ad hominem, sexist and racist barbs. Cargill dog, bright dog, Bakra - knowing quite well from her perch she could lob whatever derogatory shots she chose.

November 4, 2018: Mr Thwaites, horrified, surprised, engaged, pleased, ready, retorts - Harridan! Priceless!

Call someone a Bakra Dog. No problem, you are safe when you are Ms Cooper!

Call someone a Harridan (good English word) in response: how dare you, Mr Thwaites!

How far we've come!

The commentary has been great!

Thank you, Gleaner, you are the ultimate winner in this match. Awesome!!
