    I’ve read when the first European explorers came to the land soon to be named Australia, they asked an indigenous person what the name of the jumping animal was. The response was what we now the animal as today as kangaroo though really meant in the indigenous language “I don’t understand what you’re saying.”

    That’s a name I really don’t need to ever hear again… The number of innocent lives that monster stole.

    Has Stephan learned how to draw kangaroos yet? He may even get a chance to meet Skippy! (now retired and living in a care facility outside of Sydney.)

    It’s them Drop Bears!! The bloody things ‘ill getcha if you’re not careful! They’ll tear your face off! Terrified of chain saws, however, so always carry one with ya.

    Of course we have culture in Australia … it’s what we use to ferment the beer into which we put the hops !!

    Are you coming to sleepy Adelaide? If you are I’ll buy you beer or some seriously good red wine. BBQ perhaps? Lots of meat and very little veggies.

    Ummm … if you pay good money to see “the real Skippy”, please remember that many different kangaroos were used to play Skippy in the series and kangaroos rarely live beyond 10 years.


    In Aus we’d say that “someone was havin’ a lend of you”.

    Shh! Don’t tell Stephan! Besides, we all know the real Skippy died of radiation poisoning after disarming that nuclear bomb at Lucas Heights. A true Aussie hero.

    as soon as Stephan steps on the plane, some call NSA to show them these strips. By the time he wants to come back he will be on the Terror Watch List. No more Rat….just Kangaroo instead!
