  1. Jeeze, and I thought I wanted to visit Australia before, now I really want to go



    LOL, i think i really want to go just to get away from the USA!
    someone over there has a wonderful sense of humor…

    thanQ for stopping by,
    – yvonne

    oh my gosh…that is great!
    I’m almost ashamed that I understood most of the questions… Not that I thought they were asking the right questions though!



    just phucking phunny!
    i think a lot of people simply talk before they really think things through.
    admittedly, some of them made some kind of sense to me, too…
    the webmaster wasn’t too maganimous with info, but he sure got a lot of laughs!

    nice to see you again!

  3. I’ll be sending a dear friend by for a look at this.
    And I’ll be sending you an awesome Aussie link.
    Very funny, mate
    Watch out for those “Drop Bears”.
    Ever heard of “Dilligaf”? (there’ll be a quiz later this week on Australia) :o)



    hmm…not sure, but…
    Do I Look Like I Give A Fuck?

  4. ROTFLMFAO….being an Aussie, I can see the humor in all of these, but some more than others…the “drop” bears became part of a beer ad {about men trying to get laid, no shock there} we have some of THE most venomous snakes in the world, so i can’t wait to see someone try to make a pet out of a taipan, and kings cross is THE place to get naked, given it’s the red light district…not too sure the girls will appreciate being called hippo’s, but hey, sometimes the cap fits…the vienna boys choir won’t care will they??
    got sent the link by a mutual friend…great laugh first thing sunday morning…



    thanQ so much for dropping by!
    hope to see you again soon…

    question: i am a nurse and asked an young female aussie patient to disrobe and put on a “johnnie” {a hospital robe} in preparation for her physical. she and her mum got into a fit of giggles! do you know why?

  5. could be several reasons for that…prime ministers name {until recently} was john howard…VERY short man and commonly known as “little johnnie”, many aussie men refer to their pride and joy as “johnnie” {can’t have a stranger making 99% of their decisions, so they name it} but then they change the name when the prime minister changes, to the name of the new prime minister, cos they think he’s a dick….aussies can make a joke of anything at all….nothing is scared….
    as i say to ~m on a regular basis, you guys talk funny anyway, so it may just have struck their funny bone…



    ahhhh, well…it was suggested that it was a slang term for ‘condom!’
    not sure if someone was just “bustin’ me…”
    – funny talkin’ whyvonne 😉

  6. yeah, sounds like they were takin’ the piss phunny talkin’ whyvonne
    never heard of a condom being referred to as a johnnie, but then different states call different things different names….given we only have 5 states it can get confusing…mind you i AM easily confused sometimes
