    I ran into this news story about some clever Ozzies on CBS News. .


    I found the passage in bold particularly endearing. I have
    a lingering image of Latimour, Petebass, Fuzzbass, Steph
    and crew appropriately attired for the elements at their
    next Sydney GTG.


    Schweet!

    We are going to need some pics of that, for sure!

    :) For a second there, I thought this was going to be a story about an obscure Ned Kelly tribute.

    Queensland is HOT! I go there for holidays and as you walk around, you can hear your skin crackling like pork in an oven. The smell attracts drop-bears and you don't want to get into a bung-fight with one of those.............

    I love this sentence, and I have no idea what it means.

    The last time I mentioned drop bears on TB was 2 years ago and the thread went for 3 pages before anyone realised I was just kiddin around. Thanks for spoiling it Chunk :)

    Ahhh, if it wasn't for Google I would have been right in line too. "Drop-bear? A man eater, Really??? Wow, sounds vicious" :D

    G'day Dan. I'm not on TB much nowadays, too much good stuff going on in life. But if you're ever in Sydney, you know I'm always good for a beer and some croc wrestling.

    Still looking for the meaning of "bung fight." I googled it, and had an idea already, but I'm still perplexed...
