You know you're Australian if...
*You believe that stubbies can be either drunk or worn. *You've made a bong out of your garden hose rather than use it for something illegal such as watering the garden.
*You're liable to burst out laughing whenever you hear of Americans "rooting" for something.
* You pronounce Melbourne as 'Mel-bin'. You believe the 'L' in the word 'Australia' is optional.
*You can translate: 'Dazza and Shazza played Acca Dacca on the way to Maccas.'
*You believe it makes perfect sense for a nation to decorate its highways with large fibreglass bananas, prawns and sheep.
*You call your best friend 'a total bastard' but someone you really, truly despise is just 'a bit of a bastard'.
*You think 'Woolloomooloo' is a perfectly reasonable name for a place. *You're secretly proud of our killer wildlife.
*You believe it makes sense for a country to have a $1 coin that's twice as big as its $2 coin.
*You understand that 'Wagga Wagga' can be abbreviated to 'Wagga' but 'Woy Woy' can't be called 'Woy'.
*You believe that cooked-down axle grease makes a good breakfast spread. You've also squeezed it through Vita Wheats to make little Vegemite worms.
*You believe all famous Kiwis are actually Australian, until they stuff up, at which point they again become Kiwis.
*Beetroot with your Hamburger... Of course.
*You know that certain words must, by law, be shouted out during any rendition of the Angels' song 'Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again' And "Living next door to Alice".
*You believe that the confectionery known as the Wagon Wheel has become smaller with every passing year.
*You wear ugg boots outside the house.
*You believe that every important discovery in the world was made by an Australian but then sold off to the Yanks for a pittance.
*You believe that the more you shorten someone's name the more you like them.
*Whatever your linguistic skills, you find yourself able to order takeaway fluently in every Asian language.
*You understand that 'excuse me' can sound rude, while 'scuse me' is always polite.
*You know what it's like to swallow a fly, on occasion via your nose.
*You know it's not summer until the steering wheel is too hot to handle and a seat belt buckle becomes a pretty good branding iron.
*Your biggest family argument over the summer concerned the rules for beach cricket.
*You still think of Kylie as 'that girl off Neighbours'.
*When working in a bar, you understand male customers will feel the need to offer an excuse whenever they order low-alcohol beer.
*You know how to abbreviate every word, all of which usually end in -o: arvo, combo, garbo, kero, metho, milko, muso, rego, servo, smoko, speedo, righto, goodo etc.
*You know that there is a universal place called "woop woop" located in the middle of matter where you actually are.
*You know that none of us actually drink Fosters beer, because it tastes like poop. But we let the world think we do. Because we can.
*You have some time in your life slept with Aeroguard on in the summer. Maybe even as perfume.
*You've only ever used the words - tops, ripper, sick, mad, rad, sweet - to mean good. And then you place 'bl..dy' in front of it when you REALLY mean it.
*You know that the barbecue is a political arena; the person holding the tongs is always the boss and usually a man. And the women make the Salad.
*You say 'no worries' quite often, whether you realise it or not. *You understand what no wucking furries means.
*You've drank your tea/coffee/Milo through a Tim Tam. *You own a Bond's chesty. In several different colours.
*You know that roo meat tastes pretty good, But not as good as barra. Or a meat pie.
*You know that some people pronounce Australia like "Straya" and that's ok.
*And you will forward this list to other Australians, here and overseas, realising that only they will understand.

Ricky Bobby: Well let me just quote the late-great Colonel Sanders, who said..."I'm too drunk to taste this chicken."

An oldie but a goodie
The gods do not deduct from man's allotted span the hours spent in fishing. ~Babylonian Proverb

Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~Patrick F. McManus
