Kevin Rudd Presents Shooting Rare Chinese Birds

The Worst of Perth Television

A quite bizarre game of shooting birds I found in a shop in Highgate. The spring guns are so powerful that if you are not a huge distance away, they will knock the whole thing to the floor. You need to be so far away you can hardly see the birds. These stills are just for those who can’t see the montage masterpiece of video I have edited up for youse to demonstrate the remarkable shooting birds game in action. I don’t know why I included Kevin Rudd in the video. I think wine can be blamed, or perhaps the fact that it was made in China. And I am also too tired to do the translations from the Chinese. And of course it should be 猴看了not 候看了. In any case, be amazed by Shooting Birds, presented by Kevin Rudd. By the way, the sound it makes is like an approaching harvester. That is supposed to be the realistic chirping sound.

    Excellent. I think the characters are that old Heilongjiang saying:

    ‘A nation that can shoot two birds with the hand is sure to cause problems for Bush in Iraq.’

    Or maybe I haven’t quite got the nuances and it’s something to do with a strip club at the Olympics?

  5. Or more clearly, “Kill the chicken, show the monkey.” Meaning that if you punish someone, make sure others see it. To make an example of someone.
    Appropriate for Kevin and Bird game.
    I thought the piece was right up there with Odessa steps sequence myself.

    if you wanted an Odessa Steps moment, you could have introduced a still of Rudd, with his glasses broken, blood streaming from his eye, and a liitle red rubber dart protruding

    Well, Rudd is the Milky Bar Kid so his association with shooting things is quite appropriate.

    I remember games like that from my childhood. I thought it would be a bit unPC these days, not to mention having the element of danger so lacking in today’s toys.

    I like the shadow effects. Very Noir.

    I am surprised that Kevin Rudd would do this. I’ve heard he’s a whale-hugger.
