You know you're in the middle of the outback when.....
a billboard announces "Last McDonalds 500 km" (or more)
......You ask for directions to a particular landmark
or place and are told it's 'just around the corner'. 50 km later down the road,
you finally find it
....You ask where you are and discover it has no name.
.....the landscape looks all the same and hasn't changed in 500 km (ie in N.T, SA, WA.)
....when in getting from town A to town B in a day you manage
to easily listen to all the music in your 10 CD stacker
....there's only one road and you're on it...for hundreds of kms.
....if you don't fill up with petrol NOW,
you won't find another stop for 500 km, by which time it will be too late...

An old swaggie was walking along a dusty bush road in the blazing midday heat.
He hears a horse-drawn vehicle coming up the road behind him …
then a nice tidy gig, driven by a local squatter,
stops beside him and the squatter calls out;
"G'day old bloke, hop up here and I'll give you a lift!".
The swaggie looks the squatter and his flash clothes up and down
… looks down the road, with its miles of dust and endless cattle gates
… and turns back to the squatter and says;
"No thanks. You can open your own bloody gates!"

A bloke walks into a house of ill repute and says:
“I’m a bit kinky, how much for total humiliation?”
The madam replies $60.
“Wow, what do I get for that?” he asks.
She says:
“A baggy green cap and an Australia cricket shirt.”

A policeman in New South Wales pulled over a driver
who had been weaving in and out of the traffic
He approached the car window and said
"Sir I need you to blow into this breathalyzer".
The man reached into his pocket and produced a doctor's note.
On it was written:
"This man suffers from chronic asthma.
Do not make him perform any action that may leave him short of breath".
The policeman said
"Okay then I need you to come and give a blood sample"
The man produced another letter.
This one said:
”This man is a hemophiliac.
Please do not cause him to bleed in any way".
So the officer said:
"Right, I need a urine sample then".
The man produced a third letter from his pocket.
It read:
"This man plays cricket for Australia;
please don't take the piss out of him"

An English tourist got himself a job working with
a fence building contractor in the outback
After a few weeks of working with just one other man, he asked the boss "
What is a bloke supposed to do about sex out in this god-forsaken place?"
The boss replied
"Well, the kangaroos aren't bad, mate".
"How in the hell does one do it with a kangaroo?' asked the Pommie.
"Right, we'll catch one and I'll show you" said the boss.
So they caught a kangaroo,
and as they struggled to hold it down the boss looked carefully all around the horizon.
"What are you looking for?" asked tha Pommie.
"I gotta be careful" said the boss,
"I'm going steady with an emu."

An Aussie, a Kiwi and a South African are in a bar one night having a beer.
All of a sudden the South African downs his beer,
throws his glass in theair, pulls out a gun,
shoots the glass to pieces and says,
"In Seth Efricka(South Africa), our glasses are so cheap that
we don't need to drink from the same one twice".
The Kiwi obviously impressed by this, drinks his beer,
throws his glass intothe air, pulls out his gun,
shoots his glass to pieces and says,
"Well mate,in UnZud (EnZed - New Zealand)
we have so much sand to make the glasses
that we don't need to drink out of the same glass twice either".
The Australian, cool as a cucumber, picks up his beer and drinks it,
throws his glass into the air, pulls out his gun
and shoots both the South Africanand the New Zealander and says,
"In Australia we have so many bloody SouthAfricans and New Zealanders
that we don't need to drink with the same onestwice."

The True Australian
What makes a true Australian?
Have they set some stringent test?
Should he ride a stallion stockhorse
Round some station in the west?
Does he camp at night with ringers
When the dust has turned to mud?
Could you smell the eucalyptus
That is running through his blood?
Does he drift with sunburnt drovers
On the overlanders track?
Should he gallop through the timbers
With a stirring stockwhip crack?
Does he rush down mountain gullies
Chasing brumbies in the scrub?
Would you find him Saturday evening
In some lonely outback pub?
Am I any less Australian
On my green suburban block
Where I’ve never heard the gunfire
As they slaughter starving stock?
Where I can little but imagine
Tragic tales in times of drought.
As I’ve never wandered westward
To the stations further out.
I have never known the horror
When the water holes go dry.
I can only grasp at glimpses
Why a drovers wife would cry.
Am I any less Australian
‘Cause my crops just do not fail?
Or I’ve never humped Matilda
On a dusty trackless trail?
I live in easy splendour
On a manicured city street,
Is it guilt I should be feeling
For the bounty that I eat?
When my taps are never empty
And my grass is always green,
Should I feel regret and sorrow
For the things that might have been?
Now there’s not a single stockman
In the circle of my friends,
But they stick like mates together
And they’ll be there till it ends,
They are plumbers and they’re painters
And I like ‘em just the same;
They’re true Australian Aussies
Who are proud to bear that name.
Written by Bob Miller (The Larrikin)

I know that Aussie Bush Etiquette is recognized throughout
the civilized world but we all need to be reminded from time to time.
In General:
1. Never take an open stubby to a job interview...
2. Always identify people in your paddocks before shooting at them.
3. It's tacky to take an Esky to church.
4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it's time to change the sheets.
5. Even if you're certain you're included in the will,
it's rude to take your ute and trailer to the funeral.
Eating Out:
1. When decanting wine from the box, tilt the paper cup
and pour slowly so as not to bruise the wine.
2 If drinking directly from the bottle, hold it with only one hand.
Entertaining at Home:
1. A centrepiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist..
2. Don't allow the dog to eat at the table, no matter how good his manners.
Personal Hygiene:
1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this should be done in private,
using one's OWN ute keys.
2. Even if you live alone, deodorant isn't a waste of money.
3. Extensive use of deodorant can only delay bathing by a few days.
4. Di rt and grease under the fingernails is a no-no, it alters the taste of finger foods and if you are a woman it can draw attention away from your jewellery.
Theatre/Cinema Etiquette:
1. Crying babies should be taken to the lobby and picked up after the movie ends.
2. Refrain from yelling abuse at characters on the screen. Tests have proven they can't hear you.
Weddings:
1. Livestock is a poor choice for a wedding gift.
2. For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A tracksuit with a cummerbund and a clean football jumper can create a tacky appearance.
3. Though uncomfortable, say "yes" to socks and shoes for the occasion.
Driving Etiquette:
1. Di m your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if your gun's loaded and the roo's in your rifle sight.
2. When entering a roundabout, the vehicle with the largest roo bar doesn't always have the right of way.
3. Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape.
4. When sending your wife down the road with a petrol can,
it's impolite to ask her to bring back beer too.

Americans: Are justifiably proud of the accomplishments of their present citizens.
Canadians: Prattle on about how some of those great Americans were once Canadian.
Aussies: Waffle on about how some of their past citizens
were once Outlaw Pommies,
but none of that matters after several beers.

Have a good one, Phil. Love your work. :)
