I bought the Underbelly series to watch in the UK . Had to get it mailed from New Zealand, as it was banned in Aus.

As for the cultural scene, basically, you'll never make a million running a dance company in Australia unless it involves the dancers gyrating and taking their clothes off.
What other types of dance company ARE there?

IIRC there was a ban on mail orders because it couldn't be shown in Victoria due to the impending trial of one of the real life crims portrayed in the show. Complete waste of time because heaps of people just posted or e-mailed copies of the thing to their Victorian friends.

The other sort of dance show is the type you get dragged along to occasionally by your adoring wife/daughter/date, where you wriggle around in an uncomfortable seat, try not to snore and pass the time idly daydreaming about the sexual prowess of the female lead.

Had a blonde moment thinking that they ought to refer it to the European Court of Human Rights... But I suppose that bit of legislation doesn't exactly apply in the Antipodes... Even if it still part of The Commonwealth.

It's a good job they don't let me do anything responsible like flying aeroplanes...

I still chuckle about a report I read of an exchange in one of the State parliaments a few years ago, a member was told to apologise and withdraw his statement that the Honourable Member for Wongadongaloo was a "Fukcing Dill", where upon the offending member said, "Yes I do apologise for calling the Honourable Member for Wongadongaloo a Fokcing Dill, he's a Fokcing Goose"! Uproar all round, "Leave the chamber" etc. etc.

They call it the Westminster System but that is where the similarity ends, Australian parliament, especially question time, is highly confrontational and personal, nothing at all like the sedate European parliaments.

We have a weekly TV program called The Gruen Transfer (on advertising and marketing). Each week 2 ad agencies are invited to make ads on a 'hard to sell' product/subject. Here is their take on ads designed to get Aussies to stop swearing (done in August this year):

Then there's that old one:
"I'm not a Liberal, I'm a Country member" <- may not make sense to those under 50
"Yeah, we remember".

The parliamentary exchanges might be more robust than those we see here - but regrettably this does not guarantee a superior form of government.

Your Lordship might have been right about this forty years ago. Alas, no longer.

Re embargoes
Blue Murder was unobtainable for a long time, had to get a friend in VIC to tape it for me. Bloody daft - what did they do in Albury/Wodonga?

An Australian father is accused of forcing his teenage son to have sex with a prostitute out of fear that he was gay!

As the rest of the family celebrated Christmas, the father allegedly took his son to a motel in North Rockhampton, where he paid the prostitute to have sex with his son, according to The Morning Bulletin, a newspaper in Rockhampton. He left the room, demanding that the boy show him a used condom as proof he finished with the prostitute.

Since the son started crying he must've been one of
them gays then.

I wish my old man had've been like that - I would've
dressed up like a poof every day so that he'd have to
shout me a whore every 6 months to remind him that
I'm no dung-puncher.

Fortunately we're blessed with an almost-3yo son who
cracked a fat every time he got breast fed. He doesn't
mind seeing mummy's tits when she gets dressed, and
when he sees his dad's nasty he gets this obvious look
of disgust. So I think I got no wucken furries about me
kid turning out queer.

Great videos but what confuses me is how come so many "Uphill Gardeners" in Sydney?

Dunno Verce - I never studied the reasons why they herded
themselves into Sydney because frankly I don't care a stuff.
Maybe the same reasons why you can find large mobs of 'em
grazing in San Francisco (then again it is Calif).

I would have thought that the sight of a Rockhampton hooker would have confirmed his interest in men, sheep, vacuum cleaners or anything other than what lay before him. 'Oy Love! Get yer gear off! I'm chargin' by the minute' would be about as romantic as it got...

Many moons ago I went to a family get together in a town west of Rocky and not nearly as cosmopolitan. One of the attendees was a middle aged Catholic priest; a big drinker, exorcist and a missionary to many heathen parts, ex footy player and an all round decent bloke who generally wears normal clothes such as jeans and a polo shirt. Anyway, the room allocations were dished out and said priest was given the 'special' room. We went in for a look (and to watch the footy on the special big screen TV) and noticed the mirrored ceiling, slightly stained satin bedspread and special moodlights. 'What's the go, Father?' We all asked while groping around in the special fridge for a special beer. 'I dunno', he replied sheepishly. 'I think they did the maths and worked out I was the only single bloke in the group, the man at the desk kept winking and saying there was an entertainment package available for this room, I asked if it was Fox Sports but he got flustered and woudn't answer'...

Needless to say, his beer, big screen TV and satin bedspread enhanced the family footy viewing experience and we never found out what the 'entertainment package' entailed. He left the next morning in full dog collar for the Church service and the motel people were suitably quiet...

Just to prove that there might be something to the title of this thread, yesterday, a 76 year old Catholic priest (who admittedly is a bit of a character) dropped the eff-bomb on the ABC's 11.00 am 'Conversation Hour' and raised hardly an eyebrow.
