Default Yea

My favorite was the original MAD MAX, I loved the car. I used to have a 5 liter Capri in my teens....without the blower of course.

And what do the Aussies think of Mel anyway? I like him cause I think he's honest when he speaks.

Geez, I thought everyone knew that. That was his inspiration for Young Frankenstein. The working title was , "Crocodile Frankenstein." Seems a shame they changed it up.

And another thing I've wondered...does everyone have a knife like Crocodile Dundee? Tell us the real story about the Aborigines.

I think it's only the men that carry the big Bowie knives around.

We aren't even allowed to carry those in Texas unless were in costume.

Hey Tom, the knife from crocodile Dundee is one we use to trim our finger nails! You should see the one we use for hunting!
Seriously though l am a bit worried about the guns l recently saw on Nestors post. Man...what do you guys use them for?
Over here no one has a gun except for the police and undesirables. I can't believe that a lot of you guys have one...but then again...

Uncle, its almost ths same here as it is there. Police and the bad guys have guns.

What do we use the guns for??? They are for when the ---- hits the fan. (you fill in the blank) and not everyone has a gun.

He's Canadian so you know he's up to no good.

Guns are a cultural thing. In the US they more or less represent freedom, especially considering it is necessary to keep the British from taking us back. You guys should be worried too.
