Is Mercedes Corby just a cheap money-grubbing slut?

Mercedes dresses modestly to appeal to the sensitivities of the Islamic Indonesian Government officials

Mercedes dresses modestly to appeal to the sensitivities of the Islamic Indonesian Government officials

At the risk of Blogocrats descending into Sunday Telegraph material,

I think in the interests of “balance” (whatever that is), I think it’s important to have the occasional piece of “gutter trash” journalism. Personally, at great risk (well, minimal really) to my already tarnished reputation, I am prepared to take on this onerous task.

Much has been written about the Corby family in recent years. When Shappelle was originally arrested all those years ago, I, along with John Howard, and a large majority of Australians felt sorry for the poor sheila.

Since then, it’s unfolded that her brother’s been involved in drug dealing, her father likewise, her sister enjoys the odd bong while her mother, well she’s just a feral old trollop from the back of Bourke.

The lastest chapter in the Corby saga has Merecedes (I mean who in their right mind names their kid after a fricken car for Christ’s sake?) get her kit off for some morbid “men’s magazine”.

Is there no end to the depths this family will sink to in order to maintain some presence in the local media?

I mean, it really does give them a lot of credibility doesn’t it?

Mercedes Corby, the jailed druggies’ answer to Danni Minogue. What next? A guest appearance on Big Brother?

May the Lord have mercy on us all.

  1. Whilst this sort of thing should NEVER be discouraged for women with the right credentials, and whilst the author of this piece has no qualifications whatsoever to make such a judgement, the answer to the headline question is nevertheless indeed in the affirmative.

  2. reb…. why have you aggravated my suffering??

  3. “Whilst this sort of thing should NEVER be discouraged for women with the right credentials”

    Who needs credentials? All you need is someone who knows how to work their air brush and anyone could look that good.

    Her natural charms are definitely not on show in those photos.

  4. I think she seems quite comely. And while airbrushing does wonders, she does need some surgical enhancement, just like my wife.

    As well as injecting poison into one’s forehead to eliminate the ability to show emotion, I’m an advocate of injecting chemicals into female breasts to pump them up to a huge, unnatural size.

    They’re better than natural, they can be described as being similar in texture to filling a balloon up with concrete and allowing to set. That’s according to the policewoman that arrested my wife on the weekend. She’ll beat the charge, it was of course, the under 18s cricket team with her.

  5. The money would be useful in supporting Schapelle, I don’t begrudge her this, she seems to be ferociously supportive of her sister in trouble. Good on her, take whatever they offer. Nothing nasty about the photo, seems pretty subdued compared to a lot of others.

  6. Oh………………………how I do wish Julie Bishop would do something similar !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Actually, whoever did the photoshop work did a really bad job. Look at the “blurring” of pixels underneath her armpit.

    And those porcelain white teeth would be impossible to achieve with the amount of fags she chokes back on a daily basis..

  8. Oh! Dear…I know I said 100,000 hits by Christmas but do we need this? Bo-oring!

  9. TB @ 8

    Well you think of something then ya miserable old git…!

  10. Is Mercedes trying to help her sister who is in an Islamic country? Or might the outfit or lack there-of be detrimental to her sister’s cause? And does she know it and the dollars are all about herself.

    Go away Mercedes.

    But back to basics. Bring marijuana to Bali? Give us a break. Some Mr/Ms Clever Socks worked out (read it) that price per kg that by taking marijuana to Bali then one would have been making a 35% loss. And so…why….

    And ummm, a body board is a firm stout item whereas a bag of hash is soft and floppy. When did the body board change from one to t’other.

  11. ” a body board is a firm stout item whereas a bag of hash is soft and floppy. When did the body board change from one to t’other”

    Apparantly when the customs officers popped the cork on the vacuum seal.

    “Bring marijuana to Bali? … price per kg that by taking marijuana to Bali then one would have been making a 35% loss. And so…why….”

    Min there is good stuff grown by Mr Corby and neigbour and crap a\vailable in much of Asia. Mr Corby and neighbour worked together in the mines in CQ and them bought adjoing ‘cattle properties’ – no cattle to speak of. Mr Corby’s neighbour was convicted and his supplies were packed in exactly the same sealed plastic bags found in Corby’s body board bag. Strange that!

    In much the same way that oils ain’t oils, marijuana’s quality varies considerably. And when you get hooked on the good stuff you want more of same.

    There’s heaps and heaps of marijuana available in Vietnam for example but it is not even used for sm\oking. No ”effects’ or even ‘affects’ to speak of.

    She is guilty as sin.

  13. Yes, yes she is, a cheap moneygrabbing slut that is.

    Mutton photoshopped as lamb.

  14. 10. reb

    aaawgh! Ma-ate, sorry, twere a poor attempt at a joke

    (Shall I post something…?)

  15. She is guilty as sin.

    Well as charged!

  16. In bali, drugs are as easy to obtain as they are in australia. The druggo boat driver we hired came with pot as well, dive partner like that. Drugs are in every country.

  17. Mercedes has the eyes akin to the headlights of a 180B. Power assisted, artificial light, hard, cold, lacking character.
    At least Julie Bishop may make the cover of the Seniors Weekly, once.

    On a lighter note, the shoethrowing Iraqi journalist at the Shrub’s illegal press conference really needs to spend some time in the nets perfecting the outswinger and the inswinger.
    Golly gee, a perfect opportunity wasted through lack of throwing skill. How sad.

  18. TB Queensland

    “Well as charged!”

    Touche! BTW, anyone who takes drugs into Asia (broadly defined) has to be nuts. The warnings of the consequences are everywhere.

    But while on penalities I was amazed that Peter Lloyd isn’t to receive the rattan. Nvertheless, I’ll bet he breaks at least one rule while inside that ensures at least a couple of strokes.

  19. Oftenbark @ 18 – How true.

    He should have thrown a sock. A sock with a half brick in it, discharged in a hammer throw style.

    What type of shoes were they? I hope he hasn’t wasted a good pair.

  20. Tom of Melbourne: Did you say half brick or half prick?
    Where was Little Dick Cheney anyway?

    How did a common thief, and murderer, get a visa to enter Iraqi territory?

  21. Have to add that grenade wrapped in a hanky that didnt go off was a total waste of a good hanky.
    My mother can throw a slipper around corners with a pin point shot. i could go on but…(family secrets)

    What M.corbe dose is between her and the family.

    To think if you have to have a half naked person in your mag to sell it. Company or the person to blame.?( another topic i guess)

  22. I’d fuck it (well going by the picture anyway). But then, I’m straight, unlike most of the contributors here!

  23. Someone air brush my head so i can look good.

  24. Settle down Aquanut. Any more such outbursts will have us claiming you may have the narcissus complex of Bishop and Turnbull (wink).

    Substance over image Aquanut. You qualify.

  25. A slut!?… I always thought that referred to a person (usually female) that had sex, with whoever and whatever without attraction yet there is no payment

    I guess I was wrong.

    Seems I’m not a slut after all. I’ve had many one nighters(having one right now actually)

    I do know his name
    I do now his occupation
    There will be no pictures
    There willl be no payment

    I doubt I will ever see him again

    So – am I a slut or what?

  26. 25. another girl – another planet
    So – am I a slut or what?

    No, neither is Mercedes Corby. Would that Labor minister selling a photo of a poor b*stard setting himself alight at Parliament House to bring attention to his plight be a cheap money grubbing slut? (actually, could the media kindly bring the details of the man’s case to our attention – I for one, would like to know what has happened to him).

  27. TB @15,

    no worries, it would be good if you could post something. I’m beginning to get writer’s block – as evidenced by resorting to writing something about Mercedes Corby.

    It’ll be Ita Buttrose next unless someone intervenes!!!

    🙂

  28. Well, another girl – another planet – when I was much younger, we had a name for young women like you!

    We called your type popular.

  29. reb,

    I’ll be back posting soon. Another day or two and I will be able to write threads again – pain subsiding.

  30. joni-
    pain subsiding.

    Good to hear. The worst thing about pain from operations is that you can’t drown it in alcohol for a week or so because of the other bloody pain killers. Just as long as you don’t make the pain worse by watching Dr Phil or Oprah, you should get through it OK.

  31. … and I just wan’t to say that that photo of MC is truly horrendous. WTF was Ralph magazine thinking.

  32. One last thing –

    AGAP @26

    Good on you. I always find it annoying that blokes are apparently encouraged to go out and enjoy sex as much as possible but women somehow aren’t and are criticised if they do. I reckon it’s great that more and more women are increasingly comfortable in their sexuality and enjoyment of sex. It generally makes the sex a lot better as well – for both parties 😉

  33. “The worst thing about pain from operations is that you can’t drown it in alcohol for a week or so because of the other bloody pain killers”

    Who says you can’t?

    That’s just some myth spread about by wowsers.

  34. Actually reb – you’re right – Asprin, Paracetamol and Ibuprofen are all unafected by alcohol and do not increase the effects. Codein affects the liver and prolonged use of Codein can increase the effectes of alcohol but only because your liver is F’d. Some of the higher level pain killers like torodol etc aren’t reall good with alcohol.

    I really should have said the antibiodics instead of painkillers. Most antibiodics (the several a day over a week ones) generrally don’t interact with alcohol but the high dossage ones they give you after surgery and to knock over the really bad bugs (the one tablet wonders!) are no-no’s with alcohol. These ones can induce nasea if taken with alcohol, but then so can alcohol if taken with more alcohol 😉 Note: Alcohol will not reduce the effects of antibiotics but getting hammered will lower your immune system and work against undo some of the good stuff the antibiotics are doing.

    The biggest prob with drinking after surgery is that it increases the swelling. You are also prone to do stuff under the influence that you really shouldn’t be doing.

    It’s amazing the type of information you pick up from Drs and pharmacists

  35. F#@k – does anyone else find IE8 submits posts early? This is really sh1

  36. Arrrrgh ‘SHITTING ME’ The F#@ker just did it again. F#@k’n microsoft crap – it even prevented me from installing Google Chrome the other day to get around this problem.

  37. If you don’t mind Dave, could you stick to the topic? We’re trying to discuss Mercedes.

    And if this is the effect that dope smoking has on a woman, then my wife is back it tonight. To hell with her bail conditions.

  38. Tom

    LOL – I thought the point of this thread was to NOT talk about Mercedes.

    In the meantime – F#@k, Sh#@t F#@k re IE8

  39. This thread is starting to resemble a boys own club!

    If you want to look at how even the supposed intelligentsia are gender divided, The issue is White Ribbon Day.

    Blogger On The Cast Iron Balcony

    …Being a feminist blogger is tiring. Along comes a feminist “day” or a news item, and out come all the tired old antifeminist tropes again. Even on blogs with a (mostly) articulate and educated readership, we get threads like this and this and this. It gets so exhausting refuting the same old stuff. ..

  40. “And if this is the effect that dope smoking has on a woman, then my wife is back it tonight.”

    Just wait til she gets “the munchies”. Then she’ll end up looking like Mercedes’ mum!

    Fancy calling your daughter Mercedes? You’d think coming from that family they would’ve thought of something more fitting, like Hyundai or Barina or Skoda..

  41. reb, Maybe the Corby’s were being “aspirational”.

  42. Re sluts. This is a tricky one isn’t’ it. A slut can be a woman who bears a child outside of marriage/a slut can be a female person who refuses sex with a drunken male/a slut can be a female who argues with you at work/a slut can be well..any female who doesn’t do what you want them to do.

  43. It covers a lot of ground doesn’t it Min…

  44. 100,000 HITS WELL DONE BLOGOCRATS!!!!

  45. Not all, reb. Some on here are very nice people I imagine.

  46. quite right joni. Comment retracted.

    I’m just feeling a bit tired and emotional.

  47. Good points above from AGAP, Kittylitter, Min et al.

    In hindsight I’d like to retract my use of the word “slut”. I know nothing of Skoda’s bedroom habits & “slut” is not relevant to why I find her cringeworthy.

    I would like to replace “slut” with superficial, opportunistic wannabe.

    BTW pete, that’s some regressive chestbeating pal, & no I’m not gay.

  48. Promiscuity is not gender biased…but the connotations of it certainly are.

  49. Speaking of “superficial, opportunistic wannabe”… did you notice our very own Lleyton & Bec have called their new son “Cruz”? Just like Pos and Becks.

    I think it is great when our celebrities emulate the very, very bad taste pretentiousness as the foreign ones.

    STAND UP AUSTRALIA!!!!

    Something to be proud of.

  50. With apologies. A ‘slut’ is any person male or female who doesn’t conform to the specified criteria re subservience. Amazing how people who stand up for themselves are often labelled ‘sluts’. Just an observation. Mind you this is apart from the topic of Mercedes posing in a bikini…not slutish, just either stupid (detrimental to her sister) or greedy trying to cash in on her sister’s notoriety.

    My last say on this topic unless anyone wants to write to me.

  51. Don’t get me started on Lleyton Tom!
