Australian Tourism Q&A

Tue Jun 07, 2005 1:06 pm

A friend e-mailed this to me. Quite funny:

These were posted on an Australian Tourism Website and the answers are the
actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have a sense of
humor.


Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia? I have never seen it rain on TV,
how do the plants grow? (UK).
A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them
die.

Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? (USA)
A: Depends how much you've been drinking.

Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney - can I follow the railroad tracks?
(Sweden)
A: Sure, it's only three thousand miles, take lots of water.

Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Australia? (Sweden)
A: So it's true what they say about Swedes.

Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in Australia? Can you send me a list
of them in Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville and Hervey Bay? (UK)
A: What did your last slave die of?

Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Australia? (USA)
A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe.
Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the Pacific which does
not... oh forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in Kings
Cross. Come naked.

Q: Which direction is North in Australia? (USA)
A: Face south and then turn 180 degrees. Contact us when you get here and
we'll send the rest of the directions.

Q: Can I bring cutlery into Australia? (UK)
A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? (USA)
A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which is... oh forget it.
Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every Tuesday night in K! ings Cross,
straight after the hippo races. Come naked.

Q: Can I wear high heels in Australia? ( UK)
A: You are a British politician, right?

Q: Are there supermarkets in Sydney and is milk available all year round?
(Germany)
A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of vegan hunter/gatherers. Milk is
illegal.

Q: Please send a list of all doctors in Australia who can dispense
rattlesnake serum. (USA)
A: Rattlesnakes live in A-meri-ca which is where YOU come from. All
Australian snakes are perfectly harmless, can be safely handled and make
good pets.

Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Australia, but I forget its
name. It's a kind of bear and lives in trees. (USA)
A: It's called a Drop Bear. They are so called because they drop out of
Gum trees and eat the brains of anyone walking underneath them. You can
scare them off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking.

Q: Do you have perfume in Australia? (France)
A: No, WE don't stink.

Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you
tell me where I can sell it in Australia? (USA)
A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.

Q: Can you tell me the regions in Tasmania where the female population is
smaller than the male population? (Italy)
A: Yes, gay nightclubs.

Q: Do you celebrate Christmas in Australia? (France)
A: Only at Christmas.

Q: I was in Australia in 1969 on R+R, and I want to contact the girl I
dated while I was staying in Kings Cross. Can you help? (USA)
A: Yes, and you will still have to pay her by the hour.

Q: Will I be able to speak English most places I go? (USA)
A: Yes, but you'll have to learn it first.

Send me $10,000 in unmarked notes to my PO box and something can be 'arranged'.

Really? Were you unaware of JGPH1A's predilection for dressing up as Miss Creant?

Yes I believe that's the name all his high class businessmen clients know him as down on the Cote D'Azur. You'll also find his card in many a phonebox in Central London too

Phone boxes ? Oh please - don't compare your tacky lamp-post leaning to my personalised intercontinental "service". My clientele is very discreet, based entirely on personal recommendation and thorough screening, including full financial disclosure. Big grin

No. They fear the world's envy, for having been privileged to experience something so extraordinary. Plus the inevitable embezzlement scandal (I'm VERY expensive).

It wont take much for the police to follow the trail of herpes that goes from Menton to Marseille. Word on the street is you're about to have Prince Albert's baby - either that or you are about to get a Prince Albert.

Oh please I do have standards, you know. Some second-string Euro-royal nobody ? I think not.

As for the second thing, EUWUWUWW !!! Not for anything in the world.

Actually it was the photos in the mag of Saturday Night Cabaret in the 'Allo 'Allo Sailor bar in downtown Marseilles that highlighted you in your altar ego role as Miss Creant in your sequined outfit bellowing out a Shirley Bassey number that started the revelation of your "other" life after dark Big grin

I heard it was Lacroix neo-baroque, tartan leather, high neck, frilled garter number with high gloss neo green enamel stilettos and a Vivian Westwood poncho?

Far more suited to those de Gaullean curvy hips.
