    Well I just read this all the way through.Interesting how the Aussies are always the ones to bring up the sheep.I believe at last count there were more of the critters in Aus but you had to travel further to find them and give em a bath 1st to get rid of the dust.How do you say fetish in Strine?
    Keep up the them and us banter and no one else will ever look to close.

    Great reading guys .. Can't both of you just agree on a dislike of Zard Efricans or Poms ?

    I guess the "sheep" thing is just a Welsh fondness that came across the seas long ago.. B)

    Here in England/UK/Britain/EU we don't even know what we are part of anymore .. though a price worth paying if it has stopped us slaughtering each other (and dragging you guys in as well)

    Happy New year guys,

    Humour is a great thing, now Aussies and Kiwi's get along fine, infact one of the great things about our country is we work and play well together. Maybe its time we got stuck into the Poms, now that could be interesting.

    Have a great day

    Didnt think it would take me long to find an aussie bringing up sheep shaggin :D . Now Im pretty sure that the welsh are the instigators of this passtime , BUT the aussies are the true pioneers ( the velcro glove springs to mind ). What I find interesting is that no one has mentioned the
    ASHES
    I hear the aussie bob sleigh team has approched the aussie cricket team for a meeting , they wanted to find out how they went downhill so fast, apparently after this meeting the aussie batsmen were filled with optermism ( they were seen putting on sun screen ) but the person who stayed longest at the crease was the lady who irons thier pants. One spectator got a bit miffed and wanted his admission refunded , he went to the toilet and missed the whole aussie innings . What could Ricky Ponting put in his hand to ensure the next ball was a wicket .... a bat ( he'd be a lousey funeral director ... keeps loosing the ashes :D

    I have a lovely lambs wool sheep cover for keeping my bum comfortable
    whilst perambulating on my motorised velocepide. :mrgreen:
    Also the sheep that it came off is probably well and truly stuffed ,roasted grilled or BBQ'd
    by now.
    :D
