The stories about all Australian animals being dangerous are QUITE untrue!

Some of the sheep are very sweet.
What about the REST of the sheep?

They're sour.

Au contraire, they're actually quite savoury!  Mmmm, lamb roast...

Happy Australia Day, fellow Aussies!

And tender. (Had lamb roast for lunch today).

Happy Oz day. :))

Australia has possums too ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_brushtail_possum ) though if you ask me they're cuter than the American ones.

Yes we Americans sort of got the short stick as far as cute possums are concerned.  I assume since they come from
Australia they are somehow deadly...they must be highly explosive.

Feeding the wild animals stories reminded me of the people who used to feed the wild alligators in the pond near where my mother lived in Sarasota County, Florida.  It never seemed like a good idea to teach those creatures to associate people with food. 

When the gators would get too big for residential areas the authorities used to trap them and release them in Myakka River State Park.  I don't know if this is still going on, but it sounds like a scary place to camp.

We used to see wild alligators in ponds along the side of interstate 75 in south Florida.  The road was new at that time, and the rest stops were not finished.  Someone said that if motorists tried to stop along the road to relieve themselves, they might end up being a New York strip steak.

I think we know that.  Well, I got the joke anyway. ;)

I was going to add "& bitter."  Some of the sheep are sweet, some are sour, and some are bitter because some body sheared their fleece and now they're cold! >:D

Summer here now, they're all baking slowly in the heatwave, poor things.  Even us in the Deep Deep South have had a couple of 100+F days. 

It's OK, MM, I knew it was a joke.  Sometimes I just gotta take a joke by the horns and run with it.  Otherwise I'd be feeling pretty sheepish. 

<OK, I'll go away now...>
