Kevern write a book

View this item

On 13 November, 2013, after two stints as Prime Minister and a recent election loss, Kevin Rudd announced his resignation from the Australian parliament. The next morning, inspired by @Seinfeld2000 which asks, “What if Sinefeld still on TV today?” Twitter user @Rudd2000 borrowed a hashtag and invited followers to “#imagen Kevin Rudd never fired and still PM today?” Using the mangled spelling and syntax appropriate to certain timely internet memes, @Rudd2000 painted caricatures of federal politicians and other members of the media/political class. In addition to “Kevern”, @Rudd2000 chronicled the lives of figures such “Ablo” who has a seemingly insatiable appetite, “Crag Thomsen” who is down on his luck but loves to party, “Scot Moronsen” who takes delight in others’ misery, “Toney Abert” who is a world expert in lying, and the ever-loveable “Emmo”.
