They’re not really new.  I was going through my HUGE back log of un-addressed emails and found this one, and since I”m partial to sharing the occasional “funny”, I figured what better use that to transfer it across from email to Breadcrumbs…

So here it is.  My blog post cop out.  I thought it humorous if slightly incorrect, which is probably why I found it funny.

BEER COAT – The invisible but warm coat worn when walking home after a night out at 3am in the morning.

BEER COMPASS – The invisible device that ensures your safe arrival home after a night out, even though you’re too drunk to remember where you live, how you got here, and where you’ve come from.

BRITNEY SPEARS – Modern Slang for ‘beers’, e. g. "Couple of Britney’s please, Doreen".

DRINK-LINK – A modern term for a cash point machine (ATM). Named so because it is common to visit one before going out on the booze.

SPANNER WATER – Water so cold it tightens your nuts.

MYSTERY TAXI – The taxi that arrives at your place on Saturday morning before you wake up, whisks away the stunner you slept with,and leaves a minger in your bed instead.

ROFL I love them.

But Tart Fuel is too expensive these days. None of the lovely ladies can afford it since our stupid government added a huge tax on the stuff.

I can so identify with “Breaking the Seal” I hold that sucker off for as long as I can.

Tart fuel here is cheap by comparison to back home right now, and yet ex-pat Aussies still bitch about it. Not me though, I’m just visiting! 😉

As for breaking the seal, it’s the bane of my life!

Birdwoman… They’re all open to interpretation, but being a shocking slacker, I decided against editing to suit. 😉

Salad Dodger is a golden oldie, but it’s perfect! I’m trying to remove it from my own personal resume!
