In an unrelated story, millions of Farkers decide to look for a job in Australia.

Take out your boomer and do me Yahoo Serious-style, you tanky bushman!

So don't be a jumsheep. Because no matter what turns you on, there's nothing these hot, horny lookers can't handle. How about a kinky three-way Aussie-style?

Good on you!

It never ceases to amaze me how many things which are none of government's business are illegal in America. Land of the free, my arse.

There are 900 legal brothels in Australia. Industry watchers estimate there are 12 million visits per year - or two for every Aussie male.

Wow.

Now if that kid with cancer worked for one of these companies . . .

Wow, I didn't know prostitution was legal in Australia.

She said it was no different to buying someone a box of chocolates.

Someone will be eating something, but it's not going to be chocolate.

"This is a case of Aussie bloke-ism gone too far," said Western Australia Premier Geoff Gallop.

Bloke-ism, eh? I see Australia has their own version of George W.

"Even politicians have been known to take friends to a brothel."

This doesn't happen only in Australia.

There are 900 legal brothels in Australia. Industry watchers estimate there are 12 million visits per year - or two for every Aussie male.

I assume that includes kids.

"It's no different from buying a car or a meal."

Yeah, except one doesn't pay for a car by the hour.

A company sending four clients to a brothel would expect to pay around $500 USD for a spa, massage, sex and a complimentary drink or, according to Robbie Swan, "a nice cup of coffee."

That better be one heck of a cup of coffee.

"Why can't we stick to the old ways of a bottle of whiskey or a free pass to a restaurant? Why do we have to go to these extremes?"

Getting drunk and making a complete fool of yourself isn't an extreme?

"We expect that family and church groups will be outraged that firms who provide these incentives will be given various tax benefits."--but we don't give a fark.

Ah, that was fun. Bedtime now.

Hell yeah Code_Archeologist is looking for some nice Australian geek jobs. So what if I got a $10K bonus last year, the government has not yet found a way to take away 1/2 the pussy I fark.

2001-12-22 12:49:40 AM  
And all I got was a Farkin turkey and a cheap ass thermos with the engraving of "Merry Xmas" on the side. The boss thought he would save a few bucks by not printing the letters C-H-R-I-S-T .......cheap bastard.
 
2001-12-22 12:52:03 AM  
You mean the broken promises, the kick in the ass, and the worthless stock options have been bested by a country that just got electricity 30 GODDAM YEARS AGO?

Oh, the hell with it. I wouldn't let a kangaroo massage me anyway. And theres not enough Fosters in the world to fark it. And where is a kangaroo going to scrape up the change to buy me a drink?

2001-12-22 01:02:16 AM  
Sounds like there are a helluva lot of frigid wives down under, or such services wouldn't be so popular. Any married man who needs such a cheap sex fix is either a wimp or a loser or both.

Life is like an Australian brothel. You never know which one you're gonna get.
 
2001-12-22 01:05:56 AM  
As an American, Australia ruled, even before this story. I just have a small thought:

Australia has legal brothels, but they banned GTA3, a farking videogame? So, REAL sex with prostitute = Good, but sex with prostitute in vidgame = Bad.

Someone explain that logic.

"Most employers who provide free visits to brothels will be surprised to learn that they will be entitled to a tax deduction for these gifts," he said.

I love America, but Damn that is cool!!

All my hubby got was a gift hamper.. he should be working at Harvey Norman instead of Austereo...

GTA3 is not banned here...I have a copy sitting here for the ps2 so where did your info come from?
 
2001-12-22 08:50:58 AM  
Ozzie_Pride: then expect some door knocks. read up love. illegal to own, sell or rent. it has a classification of RC (Refused Classification) meaning that you cannot have it. there was a mix up before the RC was given, and the distributor thought that they were allowed to sell it. which is why it was on the shelves for 2 weeks, before being pulled.
 
2001-12-22 08:52:41 AM  
As for this country, i would be glad to swap with any uk'ers.

Twatco:You mean the broken promises, the kick in the ass, and the worthless stock options have been bested by a country that just got electricity 30 GODDAM YEARS AGO?

Twatco, isn't it obvious? With excellent distractions like legal paid skankery, Austrailia didn't NEED electricity untill 30 years ago.

 
2001-12-22 10:09:44 AM  
WTF..we have had electricy for alot longer than 30 years..
Your just jealous that Australia is THE LAND OF THE FREE..and it is a great country!!!!!!!

Hey Ozzie, where do you work?
 
2001-12-22 10:35:50 AM  

Did Mr. Crankey get a bonus this year? Or did Richard Gere?

 
2001-12-22 11:00:19 AM  
This "average christmas bonus" is about as real as my middle testicle.

Sheesh, I don't know where 'Some companies give brothel visits as bonus' becomes 'it is the generalrule to give a fark for christmas'.
 
2001-12-22 11:32:46 AM  
heh, i've had it in my mind to eventually move to australia and either work there or start a business. with the tax breaks i think i'll definetly go there and start a business.

John Barridge from the Australian Family Association said he was "stunned".

"We don't think it's appropriate for the Christmas season," he said. "Why can't we stick to the old ways of a bottle of whiskey or a free pass to a restaurant?


Oh sure, piss off Alcoholics Anonymous and Overeaters Anonymous, as long as the "Family Association" doesn't hear about anyone having sex, it's okay.

Ozzie_Pride: Oh and we have better swimmers than America ;)

Just because you have one mutant with 18-inch webbed feet doesn't maen you have a better team. ;-)
