Haw haw, a challenge if ever I saw one!

Screw the single beer, there's a CARTON waiting for ya in Sydney!


No shortage of prawns to chuck on the barbie here in good old Adelaide - then a keg of beer for you to wash them down with !


wow not many aussies at our place brag about being from adalaide

Q: Why do people take an instant disliking to Adelaide fans?
A: It saves time.

you know your an adalaidian apparently by.

The value of your car goes up and down depending on how much petrol is in the tank.
Your family tree goes in a straight line.
Your Dad walks you to school, then starts hanging around
Your parents met through an advert on a postcard in the side window of the local newsagent.
You think a Volvo is part of a woman's anatomy.
You can tell your age by the amount of rings around the bath tub.
You go to a family reunion to look for a date.
Your number plate is personalised because your Dad made it in prison.
Your brother-in-law is also your uncle, your cousin and your step brother.
The Samaritans put the phone down on you.


and you dont wanna get me started on the crows.

im a collingworth man myself.

Think how these posts look to other countries.

Well said mate.

What much of the world doesn't understand about us Aussies is our ability to take the piss out of ourselves and laugh about it......

....and not care what anyone else thinks about it

Yes, I'm an Adelaidian and proud of it ... but that didn't stop me from having a good laugh at the above

Hadn't heard many of those before so will make sure I make good use of them ... thanks !

They still have national pride and an anthem.

Well, pride. I defy you to tell me that Australians don't have pride in their country.

I would tend to hope that the laid back humour and good naturedness that runs throughout Oz society becomes apparent to any other nationalities reading these posts.
As a society and culture, I believe we Aussies are unique in the world ... we can laugh at ourselves, we can poke fun at our neighbouring states but when it comes down to the crunch, you can't beat having an Aussie standing right next to you ... just take a look at our proud Anzac heritage to see that we more than showed the strength and resiliency inherent in your average Aussie bloke.

This is exactly what I am talking about. This is clearly a joke (by a Brit
) and we see it for the joke it is and I laughed out loud when I saw it.

We have very close ties to our Kiwi and British brothers and sisters. We get along with them like they are our best mates, we share jokes and trade insults in a fun way - even if we don't know the person themselves from a bar of soap.

your pioneers were toughmen.

google aussie manx pioneers and see how many of our then 40,000 population left to biuld your country and what they achieved.

or the australian keltic leagues will do.

I Still Call Australia Home



- Lyrics by Peter Allen

I've been to cities that never close down
From New York to Rio and old London town
But no matter how far
Or how wide I roam
I still call Australia home.

I'm always travelin'
And I love bein' free
So I keep leavin' the sun and the sea
But my heart lies waiting over the foam
I still call Australia home.

All the sons and daughters spinning 'round the world
Away from their families and friends
Ah, but as the world gets older and colder
It's good to know where your journey ends.

And someday we'll all be together once more
When all the ships come back to the shore
Then I realize something I've always known
I still call Australia home.

No matter how far
Or how wide I roam
I still call Australia home.

I'm in total agreement with you ... the pioneers that had to tame this country were made of very tough stock ... they had to be to survive out here half way around the planet from mother England. That's the legacy that has made this country and it's people today, unique in the way we look at ourselves and our country ... pride in Oz is running strong as ever !

There's a soap-on-a-rope joke there somewhere but it escapes me at the moment
