Proud To Be An Aussie Guy

22 Jun

This is a true recollection of a night many years ago when I was camped with a couple of friends I had met in a hang gliding club up in the Northern Territory of Australia

The scene is set, the night is cold,

the campfire is burning

and the stars twinkle in the dark night sky…
Three hang-glider pilots, me from Australia

one from South Africa and the other from New Zealand

are sitting round a campfire near Ayers Rock

each embroiled with the bravado for which they are famous.
A night of tall tales begins….
Keven, the kiwi says

I must be the meanest, toughest hang glider dude there us

Why, just the other day, I landed in a field and scared a crocodile

that got loose from the swamp

It ate six men before I wrestled it to the ground with my bare hands

and beat it’s bloody head in
Jerry from South Africa typically can’t stand to be bettered

Well you guys, I landed after a 200 mile flight on a tiny truck

and a fifteen foot Namibian desert snake

slid out from under a rock and made a move for me

I grabbed that bastard with my bare hands

and tore it’s head orf

and sucked the poison down in one gulp

and I’m still here today”.

Being an Aussie guy I just remained silent

Us Aussies dont go much on bullshit or bragging

I just sat there quietly

poking the fire with my penis

We Aussies dont like to brag

Bloody hell I am proud to be an Aussie

    Aussie Guys are shy retiring modest souls, and of course Emu’s are too
