As much as I've been to NZ, I've never crossed the ditch (and it's not looking like I'll make it this time, either). ONE of these days, I gotta get over there, just to say I've been there.

Oh come on now - you all know there are only two states to be in.....

Queensland or Pi**ed

Seriously the state border QLD /nsw should in fact be at or somewhere south of Cape Byron shouldn't it! - This was how the cartographers (?) had it when the sketches & maps went back to England and they got it wrong then.

Logical though is it not? The North (QLD) and South (nsw) divided at the most eastern point of the mainland. nsw could never give up all that pokie revenue though could they - well they could at least use it to fund a fair share of the Tugun bypass!!:mad:

:} OK now where can I start with the Victorians:yuk:

NT = Northern Territory

10% of the land mass, less than 1% of the population and lots of saltwater crocodiles.

Populated by people who came north because the lifestyle's better than in the other states and led by politicians who want to make us just like the southern states (but with saltwater crocodiles). :{

Large, floating population of back packers (and saltwater crocodiles)

Served by a newspaper that only runs front page stories about dogs, soldiers exposing themselves in public and.......saltwater crocodiles.

Did I mention you can't swim in the sea, because of box jellyfish, or the rivers, because of saltwater crocodiles?

Its too hot for sheep, so we farm cattle, camels, goats and saltwater crocodiles.

The other states are just places you have to drive through to get to the Territory; although Northern Queensland and Northern WA will let you get some experience coping with saltwater crocodiles too - just so's you're prepared when you get here.:E

Can't be too bad a place. tinpis lives here too :p

One is pleased to see that the citizens of the UK will be spared some of the profanity prevalent in certain areas of the commonwealth ;)

"British regulators have banned an advert aimed at luring tourists to Australia due to its use of a mild swear word, Tourism Australia says.
The headline for the commercial, which features Australians drinking and frolicking on the beach, is "So where the bloody hell are you?".

As a result, the word "bloody" will be cut for the advert when shown on UK TV, according to Tourism Australia."

"I thought I was under the limit yer honour ..I only caught five toads"


Free beer for toads
By BEN LANGFORD
20mar06

TERRITORIANS are being offered free beer in return for live cane toads.

The RSPCA, Coopers Brewery and the Cavenagh Hotel have teamed up in the name of animal welfare and the result is that toads can be turned into beer.

In a move designed to turn seasoned Top End beer drinkers into lean, mean, toad-catching machines, the three Darwin organisations have got together to set up a toad-for-beer exchange.

Anyone over the age of 18 who captures a toad and delivers it alive to the Darwin RSPCA qualifies for a glass of icy cold Coopers beer at the Cavenagh Hotel.

``Everyone who takes a cane toad to the RSPCA to be disposed of humanely gets a voucher for a free pot of Coopers ale at the Cav,'' Coopers Brewery's NT sales executive Sean Gould said.

He said there would be a beer for each toad _ up to a limit of six a day.

``It's an idea we had from the locally-produced movie Bufo Marinators that screened at the Cav last week,'' Mr Gould said.

The film, which featured a posse of toad hunters and a simulated orgy of bufo killing, caused quite a fuss.

``We want to encourage the humane treatment of animals,'' acting chief executive of RSPCA Darwin Lindsay Wilkinson said yesterday.

``If you get a free Coopers out of it then it's a bonus.''

Cavenagh Hotel general manager Brett Simmonds said: ``It's all about the toads, not about the beer.'' But the toads must be alive.

``No coupons for squashed toads,'' Mr Wilkinson said.

He was keen to make it clear he wasn't starting a roadkill collection. ``Healthy, live, no squashed cane toads,'' he said.

And Mr Simmonds agreed, saying the deal was ``fresh toads for fresh beer''.

While the toad catchers are enjoying their cold ale, the RSPCA will be busy euthanasing the toads with sodium pentobarbitone, an overdose of barbituates administered with a few drops on the skin that kills toads immediately.

``It's the most humane way to kill an animal,'' Mr Wilkinson said.

``They just go to sleep.''

But beer fiends shouldn't get too worked up.

Mr Simmonds said there would be a six-pot maximum per person per day.

``The idea is to get people catching toads and taking them for humane disposal, not to get people too drunk,'' Mr Simmonds said.

``If you take six toads in to the RSPCA, you get six vouchers. If you take 100 toads, you get six vouchers.''

But he's worried people will get the wrong idea and deliver a bucket load of toads to his pub hoping to trade them for a few cold ones.

Mr Simmonds said no one would get a beer for taking a toad to the pub.

He said the toads must be taken to the RSPCA at 80 Boulter Rd Berrimah between 1pm and 5pm on weekdays.

Vouchers for the promotion will be valid until April 30.


Will be examined by lawyers who will want a cask of Moselle for their clients.

And here I was thinking it was a cunning plot to encourage the good people of Palmerston to halt the move of cane toads into Darwin at the 14 Mile.

Yer average Palmerstonian doesn't mind the occasional tipple at someone else's expense.
