  1. Man, I wanna start an Irish thread... but I have a feeling I'd be on my own there!

    Although we did impregnate the world...

    I like Ned Kelly.
     
  2. You'd be all right in the Europe thread, wouldn't you?

    A question for You great Australian TBers, What has been Australia's contribution to the worlds Culture? I mean America gave the world, Ashlee Simpson and Jerry Springer. And the Europeons give us Nickleback and the Spice Girls. Canada gave us Molson Canadian and some Major Canadian Babebage. All I can think of is the Crocidile Guy? Please Help me on this , I know there's more , I'm sure I'm just missing it. :p

    How could I have forgotton Mark Latimour? This might be one of the greatest oversights of all time, like the Beatles not winning the grammy for best new Artest, or CIA saying that WMD's was a "Slam Dunk". Anyway I truely apologize , because Mark has truely been a GREAT contributor to the culture of TB, I also forgot about Olivia Newton John, so as Brad Cook once said to Mark Latimour "Let's get Physical" :D
     
  13. Us australians invented the sickie, i think i am going to take one tomorrow to make it a 4 day weekend, YAY! on the bad news front, i got too drunk the other night, knocked my bass over, and fell on it damaging the E-string and bending the neck...
     
  14. I am VERY VERY VERY sorry to say that Canada is responsible for Nickelback, not Europe. :scowl:

    Isn't Nicole Kidman an Aussie?
