Mozart and Coltrane hit the media: Ibis resilience

So It Goes: Ibis resilience by Linda Muller

My brother has had to cope with a bit of disappointment lately.

As the co-founder of the Bald Ibis Retribution Democrats (Ibis) party, he was hopeful of recognition at the forthcoming elections.

His is the political commentary of Mozart and Coltrane, both ibis nonsensical satirists with plenty to say about local and political issues.  Mozart and Coltrane stand for many things, but their strongest platform is that which is heavily littered with issues producing a  greater amount of rubbish.

It makes for an interesting family dinner party conversation.

Mozart and Coltaine, two ibises born from the dirty ibis clan of the Gold Coast, stand up for bird migration and  support dual citizenship for politicians, regularly quoting Tony Ibbit, Malcolm Ternbill and Canbill Newbird as reliable sources for material.

The unlikely feathered pair of ibis idealogists looks short term at issues, favouring for example a new cruise ship terminal for the rubbish it will most likely produce, despite uncertainty of a healthy future for birdlife.  If they were able to picket, their signs would ask that Do Not Feed the Ibis signs be abolished in picnic areas.

They also throw out the challenge to find a children’s lunch box they can’t hack, expressing their joy at children who carelessly leave lunch boxes unattended and often open for ibis to enjoy.

Most recently, Mozart and Coltrane visited the Birkdale refuse station as part of their political circuit, and my brother tells me they were inspired by the spectacular view to practice their mating ritual.

“The eagle may have been circling above, but we were there impressing ibis women with our fossick and forage footwork. It is no surprise that our dump odour is so exciting to ibis hens.  We especially find that when we visit Logan dump, but our feathers get a bit fluffed when we find some of the human species there are also attracted,” Mozart said.

Mozart said he believed the ibis behaviour was a self made conservation success story.

“Threaten the wetlands and it brings us out to the picnic areas and the schools and those al fresco restaurants. Seeing us around the bins makes people realise it’s important to get out,” he said.

“We did coin the term bin juice and it’s been tough watching others take the credit.  We didn’t think to patent it at the time.  And while we’re talking disappointment, we are still waiting for the paperwork from the Commonwealth Games.  Ibis for mascot,” he said.

The Good, the Bad and the ibis

29 Feb

In “The Good the bad and the ibis” two Mexican ibis gunslingers Coltrano and Mozarino go in search for missing treasure they were told about by their brother on his death bed. Deciding to kill anything in their path to eat and swim in the ample fat of the Lost Liposuction Pit of Labrador they head out on the first leg of their journey.
