Australians Plan Iceberg Party


www.stuff.co.nz

A group of Australians is planning to helicopter out to an iceberg off the New Zealand coast, camp on it while they carve out an ice bar, and then stage a party - complete with a DJ who will produce a music track

After carving out an "ice bar" inside the iceberg the men want to fly in party guests for several hours of music and drinks.

One member of the group, Phil Meadows, hopes to create a new entry for the Guinness book of records by producing a music track on the iceberg.

The group is negotiating to provide a live feed from the iceberg to an Australian TV channel (Channel 9) and

This has got to be either the most awesome party idea ever, or the most stupid!

Imagine wakening up the next day with a hangover and saying, "man, what happened last night?!"

"we got so so drunk on that iceberg man!!!"

they reckon the feed may get 50 million views too!

I reckon those Ozzies are really crazy enough to do it too!! LOL

As you say, it's either insanely awesome or insanely stupid.

I have a perverse feeling I'm going to laugh at the results no matter what.

Man...

Please some one pay for me to get to that party!!!
I'm in america...so far away from the fun! (Very far away, if you catch my drift)

You Aussies know how to party, I must say, the vacation I took in Sydney was my most memorable one.
You guys showed an american boy how to party like one of you. (thanks!)
Very hospitable people, I would LOVE to attend your ice berg party!

Even if I don't make it, Bottoms up mate!!

That's brilliant.

In the Uk if an iceberg dared to float past, it would be sealed up with sticky tape and health and safety stickers and then Tesco would build a supermarket in it only for it to be closed down again after an old granny slips on it and twists her ankle.

It would then more than likely be carved into a replica bust of either Fred Dibnah or Alf Garnet and sent onwards to France.

and I imagine in the US they'd just blast it with artillery.

Despair not (unless it makes you happy), if global warming is the cause for the renegade ice-block, then chunks from the North Pole should be floating along to somewhere near to you soon!

nice one. I think the New Zealanders will be a bit peeved that the old Ozzies came up with the idea first though!!

Lots of rivalry there.

Im so in, bring some snags and salads,, but what does a gal wear to such a gala do???
I dare say this wont happen, no way people will afford the 1000 price tag.... and who allows it?
What a great idea, I love my country, we're all mad.

Edit to Add, yes Mr Lizard, only Aussies know how to do things right.....

I knew the iceberg family in "Titanic" would have it's revenge. Will the DJ melt down with the "ship"?
Apparently these runaway icebergs are not unheard of in the Pacific. In the Kevin Costner bomb "Rapa Nui" almost a whole tribe climbs on board a passing iceberg that will carry them to the gods. The whole Easter Island waves them goodbye - there were priests on board, so it was probably a case of good riddance.

A bit like the Mayflower really - cheers unpleasant, fundamentalist sponges!

Someone must be making a lot of fake icebergs - and big ones at that!

Because as we all know - global warming is a left-wing lie!

(sarcasm detectors should be going off at the moment)

No jokes, really, I thought it was a right-wing lie? Oh well, whatever clowns the US (or the West) put into power - it's all right-wing to us.
Sounds like something from a Smirnoff ad...mmm.
On that dodgy train of thought - I do hope it's an iceberg and not some kind of coke delivery!
