Australia Day Weekend

“Okay, so its our National Day, how shall we celebrate it?”

“Let’s get all the Harbour ferries, bedeck them gaily with bunting and flags, fill them to over-flowing with cheering passengers in daft outfits, and then race them at top speed, horns blaring, ensuring that they have to thread their way amongst a shambolic flotilla of pleasure craft of all sizes, skippered by men who have spent all morning drinking beer in the hot sun…”

“Brilliant idea! Count me in.”

  1. Ah yes, the great Ferry Race. I was only in Sydney for one of those. From the river wall of Farm Cove it looked like a hoot!

    And now for the important part, please [gossip mode on] πŸ™‚

    What are they saying sorry for? Nicking the country? πŸ™‚

  3. @pierath, yep – that is what it is all about – and next I will be starting a campaign for England to say “sorry” to Wales and Scotland! The Irish don’t need an apology – they have made England sorry enough over the past 800 years!

    Every English person I know spends most of their day apologising for one thing or another – in fact, over the Australia Day weekend we had a picnic and a game of frisbee and the two Brits yelled “Sorry!” every time they threw it…!

    Sorry is the English national word, without a shadow of a doubt.

    Archie, the Scots are fighting back, not before time, and there’s a case to be made for saying that the Welsh were never broken… πŸ™‚
