Just don't forget to try a couple of Kangaroo steaks, or Emu steaks whilst here! Don't bother with trying Crocodile. Too fatty and salty.
And as for the bogans, if you hear the names Shazz, Dazz, Wazz, Johnno, Robbo, or anything else close to that, then walk the other way. You could
either end up deaf from their high pitched way of talking (at above normal volume, no less!), or down half a pack of smokes, and a few dollars too!
But in all seriousness, I still think the most dangerous thing in Aus is the Ranga. Aggro bastards when they get pushed, or the colour of their hair
is repeatedly mentioned. Angry, angry things they are!!!!
Just remember, after seeing the vid on the redback above my post, about my daughters efforts when it came to a redback. She was only 4 at the time,
and the missus (now ex) were sitting on the steps, at the front door, having a ciggarette and chatting, when little miss nosy comes out to see whats
going on. After she had a quick chat to us, she looks down at the step at the door and goes "hey mum, hey dad, what kind of spider is that???" Knowing
we had a few daddy long legs about, we asked her what colour it was, and she replies "it's black, and it has a bit of red on its back!"
The missus jumped up, since she was sitting right near it, and shreiked "IT'S A REDBACK! LEAVE IT!" Meanwhile, the little on had her face about 1ft
from the thing, and her 16 month old sister decided to come and see what the commotion was all about. The ex ended up grabbing the littler one,
telling the 4 year old to step back, while her and the little one ran inside
Funny thing about it was the ex actually made my 4 year old bring a shoe out to me so I could kill it, because she hates spiders so much, yet the 4
year old was laughing and giggling about something the size of my nail on my pinky finger, that could have killed all 4 of us no problems.
Gotta love how kids have no fear, even after you tell em how easy it could kill you!
