    Same here. A bit like another thread that's disappeared?

    Ah. A terrifying creature. Part of the 'advice' given by the Australian Tourist Information Service (?) in response to questions from visitors...... (Which is brilliant!)

    For those who get the humour :) Larrikin nature of us and sadly, a decaying and dying culture

    @Sue192 I think we need a new Icon for this type of story/posting.

    The Drop Bear fable was in the Australian Geographic magazine several years ago.

    Don't forget a little dab of Vegimite behind the ears to ward them if you are a tourist.

    You are not wrong, say the wrong word / name thing now and you are racist, sexist or what ever is the flavour of the month for politically correctness.

    I note your advice regarding Vegemite, @Tipetoo. I have also taken on board the advice from the Tourist Board that all your snakes are completely harmless and make good pets;)
    It is sad to read that that humour is disappearing, @Mike D and @Tipetoo - PC'ness doesn't recognise humour in any form.
