ABOUT THE CHASER ANNUAL 2019

The Chaser and The Shovel – two of Australia’s satirical powerhouses – have once again combined forces to bring you all of the funniest headlines from 2019 in one convenient volume.    

Across the globe, 2019 was a year of great upheaval. Except in Australia.

While Hong Kong burned, the French rioted and the rest of the planet started waking up to climate change as an existential threat, the Australian government’s major policy initiative was to make sure hospitality workers got paid less on Sundays.

The Chaser and The Shovel Annual 2019 re-lives Australian political mediocrity in all its glory with such classic headlines as:

  • New MasterChef Challenge Gives Contestants 60 Minutes To Prepare Beautifully-Constructed Illegal Wage Payment Scheme
  • NASA Commits To Fake A Man On Mars By 2030
  • Only 80% Of Australians Are Wellness Bloggers, Alarming New Jobs Figures Show
  • Strike Kids Should Be In School Learning How To Count Coal Lobby Donations, Says PM

Plus plenty of extra new content that may need to be pulled before it goes to the printers for legal reasons, including:

  • “I Only Give Character References To Respectable Paedophiles” John Howard Says 
  • “Labor’s Guide To F*cking Up An Election” 
  • “The Tony Abbott (Prime Minister 2012-1955) Commemorative Pull-Out”  

“This book is the perfect stocking filler for anyone who wants to re-live 2019 in all of its horrifying detail,” said editor Charles Firth.

It’s been 20 Years since the Chaser began in the spare bedroom of a student house in Glebe. Now, for the first time, the history of The Chaser, as told by the original founders, complete with old photos that make them look much younger than they are, and needlessly sordid details.

From the original newspaper, to their first show on Triple M, to the television years, the famous APEC stunt and through to middle-aged obscurity and bitterness.

Includes in one place for the first time, all the best headlines, front covers and articles from the past 20 years.

ABOUT FRACTURED FAIRY TALES

Teach your kids the world as it is, not the world as it should be

We all know the tale Hansel and Gretel and The Sleeping Beauty, but yesterday's morality tales need serious updating.

Charles Firth's Fractured Fairy Tales is a collection of five brand new fairy tales, that better reflect the moral and ethical compromises that are required to live in the world in 2019.

Each tale investigates a current topic that you can read to your kids to teach them about how morality actually works nowadays. Including:

  • The Man Who Wanted A Friend - A tale of a little boy who just wanted a friend, and so he built a computer program that would let him be friends with everyone in the world.
  • The Bear Family - The story of a baby bear who learns why Mummy Bear still does all the house work, even though its 2019.
  • The One Bad Prince - A story of why you still probably shouldn’t tell anyone about a horrible, creepy prince if he’s more powerful and well connected than you

Fully illustrated by some of the world's top children's book illustrators, this is a timeless classic that will introduce your children to the concept of life under a Morrison Coalition Government.
