Unabubba's Secret Identity   (+2, -1)  [vote for, against]
(or is that the other way round? )

Hello fellow half-bakers.  You might have noticed that Unabubba hasn’t been on the forum very much as late.  This is because he has been spending quite a bit of time on his new political career and with some success I might add.  He is now a federal member of the Australian House of Representatives.  To see what the (in)famous Unabubba really looks like and what he intends to achieve just Google the name “Clive Palmer"

All you ever need to know about Clive http://www.news.com...ynjr2-1226662360128

Well hey, hey Unabubba ol' buddy ol' pal, I could really use a few thou' for school, I know that wouldn't mean much to you, and all, but it sure would make a heck of a difference to me,
-- rcarty, Sep 08 2013

Woah - hold on there a minute! I am, to use the vernacular, totally gobsmacked having read the linked article. I mean Ubie, our very own Ubie...I just can't believe it. He has a WIFE???
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 08 2013

He has had TWO - although you may be less gobsmacked to know that the first one faked her own death.
-- AusCan531, Sep 08 2013

Didn't UnaBubba say one of his kids has some sort of skin condition. I'd say, Watson, that if this Clive Palmer's daughter can be found to be suffering from the ailment described, then we should be able to deduce both men are one in the same! Now please leave me to my own devices, so I can have a wank.

What happened to the time he was a helicopter pilot in the Vietnam war?
-- xenzag, Sep 08 2013

Did he say for which side?
-- AusCan531, Sep 08 2013

//Palmer plans to contest all 150 House of Representatives seats

Hmm, wasn't aware cloning had taken such strides.

NB please, for sake of your own retinas and mental health, don't find me on the net.

Hates to tell you all this, but that's not bubba, cause I am the bubba. So there.
-- blissmiss, Sep 09 2013

I am [UnaBubba] and so is my wife.
-- UnaBubba, Sep 09 2013

So, Duobubba then?
-- AusCan531, Sep 09 2013

// To see what the (in)famous Unabubba really looks like //

That's not [UnaBubba], unless either (a) he's had some serious cosmetic surgery (to remove the horns, the cloven hooves and the pointed tail), or (b) someone's REALLY good with PhotoShop ...

<all together>
I'm Ubiecus!
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 09 2013

Clive only wishes he were UB.
-- RayfordSteele, Sep 09 2013

I'm changing my name to bubbachuba.
-- xenzag, Sep 09 2013

Well, I always said [Ubie] should go far.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 09 2013

Your actual words were, "should go take a long walk off a short pier", to be precise.
-- 8th of 7, Sep 09 2013

You know, [8th], one of has the makings of a double- act.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 09 2013

I think it would be a grand political act and good publicity for the Halfbakery for him to arrive to his first day of Parliament in a Hullaballoon. (seeing how Canberra is landlocked so not accessible by the Titantic.)
-- AusCan531, Sep 09 2013

//the Titantic//...is surely another name for a Carry On film.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 09 2013

In which case it is your duty to ensure that Barbara Windsor is kept abreast of developments in that area.

Hi All, I must confess that I might have not been entirely, absolutely, 100% accurate about Unabubba's secret identity. Although he dabbles in real estate and aspires to be a swashbuckling billionaire I can't totally confirm at this time that the Halfbakery's favourite eccentric Queenslander and Clive Palmer are one and the same person. I have no information on whether or not he owns any coal mines.

I realize that truthiness lines may have been crossed, or perhaps just blurred, a little teensy bit - but we were talking about politicians here. QUEENSLAND politicians for Gawd's sake, so what did you expect?

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my little prank and I would like to assure Jutta that I would never actually disclose a Halfbaker's real-life identity without getting full authorisation (although she was really nice about it).

I can't give you his real name but if any of you wish to correspond with the real Unabubba I can give you a snail mail address.

Please mark all correspondence:

Att: "Unabubba"

C/o The Ecuadorian Embassy

Flat 3b, 3 Hans Crescent, London SW1X 0LS

It'll get to him. ;)
-- AusCan531, Sep 10 2013

Careful with the spelling of his name, too. You might get some unexpected FBI attention.
-- Custardguts, Sep 10 2013

So, the alleged real identity of a fictional character on a factual website turns out to be a fiction.
-- MaxwellBuchanan, Sep 10 2013

Fact, but in fact it's a factual website about fictitious inventions. Though the fiction, wasn't factual, it was actually the factual fiction, for facts would have been infactual, for the necessary claim of original fiction, as a matter of fact. In fact, infactual fiction, in this sense, would be facts. This is in contrast to factual fiction in a conventional sense, that would have elements of fact incorporated into the fiction.
-- rcarty, Sep 10 2013

Thankyou for clearing that up. A most cogent and useful contribution to the debate, if we may say so.

Now, can we resume playing Mornington Crescent ?
-- 8th of 7, Sep 10 2013

I don't think any of you are rowing with both oars in the water.
-- UnaBubba, Sep 11 2013

I can eat glass, it doesn't hurt me.
-- rcarty, Sep 11 2013

What about when it leaves your glasshole?
-- AusCan531, Sep 11 2013

The glass is always cleaner on the other side.
-- Ling, Sep 11 2013

This is the sort of banter, with [8th] and [Max], that I will miss.
-- UnaBubba, Mar 13 2021

Mornington Crescent.

Shall we play again?
-- pertinax, Mar 13 2021

Mornington Crescent is overrated. And it floods.
