Caller Darren just got through to local TV gambleshow Quizmania, but was unable to quickly deal with host requests that he turn down the sound on his television. Darren’s explanation:

I’m sorry. I’m from South Australia.

UPDATE. Rebase: “As long as the question related to breaking in to the zoo and interfering with some animals, he should ace it.”

    1. Fair enough

    1. Damian Lataan and Marilyn Shepherd are both from there – makes a bit of sense.

    1. But was he really sorry? I mean, did he tilt his head?

    1. Maybe that apology was directed to Nigel S.?

      Those shows are on after midnight. I don’t even know how you could keep your head upright at that hour!

      No.  But we do have hills out the back where allegedly stage things happen.  Also we get banjo jokes from some unkind visitors.

      However we feel safe here believing that terrorists will shun us – you know, a posting to Adelaide would be suicide for the career.

    1. That’s ‘strange’ things, ‘stage’ things, whatever…

    1. Speaking of Nige, he is currently surprised.

    1. We may be a bit backwoodsy in little old South Aussie, but at least there’s relatively few of the dreaded Religion of Death adherents here.
      Please make sure they stay over there in the more sophisticated eastern states guys!

    1. Andrea, what on earth are you on about?  It (“how surprising”) was clearly sarcasm, but regardless, just what does this/your comments mean or offer?

      Posted by Nige S on 2006 09 26 at 10:09 PM • permalink


    1. Nige S

      The gift that keeps giving.

      C’mon Andrea, admit it.  That’s you with a second identity, isn’t it?  This ‘troll’ is so off the planet he couldn’
      t possibly be real.

      But keep it up, please.

    1. It wasn’t an apology, it was a threat, Snowtown style.

    1. A Ready Reference Guide to South Australia:

      SA was the only one of Australia’s state which was not established as a penal colony.

      It was settled by free settlers – thus while avoiding the problems associated with having and entire population made up of petty thieves and hookers, it inherited all the vices of middle-class, 19th Century England, i.e.:

      1. Wine

      2. Sodomy

      3. Bizarre sex murderers.

      That’s South Australia in a barrel (so to speak).

    1. Is it my imagination or are The Australian’s new ‘blogs’ infested with a disproportionately high number of moonbats from South Australia?

      This may also be colonial. Lots of non-conformist Protestants with an urge to ‘reform’.

    1. The Democrats are/were strongest in South Australia.

      Game, set, match.

    1. #18, spot on! As an escapee from SA, I have first hand knowledge of the completely insane variety of moonbat politics that infests the state.
