Who the what?

Can we see it fight Russell?
2004-03-23 02:35:33 AM  
What's an "Australia"?
2004-03-23 02:37:08 AM  
both are pussies
2004-03-23 02:39:48 AM  
Joke in the headline is so un-politically correct, so laboured...

Paul Hogan or the Energizer guy
2004-03-23 02:43:43 AM  
I'm so proud.
2004-03-23 02:44:41 AM  
I'd vote for the toenail clippin guy.
2004-03-23 02:46:11 AM  
mmmm... cute Aussie biatch

Oh, the dog's a boy... wow, that comment could sure be taken the wrong way.
2004-03-23 02:46:32 AM  
I'm confused, the article is about Australia, but there's nobody named Bruce in it. How can that be?
2004-03-23 02:53:43 AM  
Hey wait a minute, I'm half dingo.

Oh wait a minute, I meant dago.

/just enough to be waterproof though.
2004-03-23 02:54:20 AM  
great headline :)
2004-03-23 02:56:44 AM  
May I be the first to ask if this is a farkin repeat? Yep, think it is.
2004-03-23 02:58:40 AM  
Why is Russel Crowe trivial? He has been in some great movies.

I thought Dingos were ferocious baby eaters.
They should have chosen Hitler because he was born there.
2004-03-23 03:03:38 AM  
Dont blame me I voted for the toe nail clipping guy.

"West Australian man who can stationary jump on his unicycle 232 times per minute"

I would have thought this was impossible and im sure it must be a interesting thing to see.
2004-03-23 03:10:12 AM  
The reason this seems like a repeat is because the people and animals in it are having issues.

Maybe a dingo ate your baby.

2004-03-23 03:47:38 AM  

I really hope you're jokin about Hitler. If not, he was born in Austria, not Australia.
2004-03-23 03:53:09 AM  
Yeah, Hitler is one big joke isn't he?

Dingoes Ate My Baby. Certifiably Great Music. Willow Approved.

Hitler was born in Australia? That sure explains Mel Gibson, Rupert Murdoch...
2004-03-23 04:29:49 AM  
Trivial as in worthy of being a question in a trivia game, not trivial as in unimportant. Although I'm sure many would contest Crowe's triviality in both cases.

2004-03-23 04:48:21 AM  
Dorie the Rottweiler was the best, most enthusiatic singing dog who ever lived. Wish I'd had a video camera while she lived.
2004-03-23 05:16:39 AM  
Here, onebadmutha, let me get that for you...

StraitAces That sure explains Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson wasn't born in Australia (he's from New York). Russel Crowe wasn't born in Australia either (he's from New Zealand).
2004-03-23 05:25:50 AM  
Crowe ain't from Australia, folks.
2004-03-23 05:26:42 AM  
So, let me get this straight, Rupert Murdoch was born in Australia but Adolf Hitler, Mel Gibson and Russel Crowe weren't? What about Rolf Harris, no-one's going to shatter that illusion for me are they?
2004-03-23 05:28:23 AM  
And, the dingo did, indeed, eat that baby. They found the remains...

2004-03-23 05:55:29 AM  
Rolf Harris is as Oz as a baby Joey.

Nicole Kidman ain't.
2004-03-23 06:07:39 AM  
Ah, so it's true - all real evil geniuses eminate from Australia...
2004-03-23 06:10:41 AM  
I've never heard of this so called dingo, and I'm as aussie as apple pie
2004-03-23 06:20:11 AM  
W00t =P

So, some of those convicts that settled Australia were raisin smugglers, I see
2004-03-23 07:09:05 AM  
The only reason that dingo is singing is cos thats steve irwins dad behind him and hes sticking his thumb up his pooshooter to really piss him off
2004-03-23 07:21:20 AM  
Anyone else read that as "beating up Russell Crowe"?

Nice to see other Buffy nerds around here.
2004-03-23 07:55:00 AM  
All I want to know is why in the fark would anyone name anything Dinky the Dingo, thats the lamest name ever.
2004-03-23 08:29:41 AM  
Buffy rules!
2004-03-23 08:39:50 AM  
'Dinky' means something small. It was also a toy manufacturer.
2004-03-23 08:43:18 AM  
Dinky 'sings' and 'plays the piano'

Or howls and walks across the keyboard.

Audio links in the upper right corner both Winmedia and Realmedia.
2004-03-23 08:56:03 AM  
I'll chime in with the Buffy nerd comment. I miss Oz.

Dinky is lame... it's part of a saying. If you're a dinky-di Aussie you're as Australian as they come. That's where the tacker got his name.

/born and bred Aussie (now expat)

seinfeld has got to be the greatest sitcom I've ever had the pleasure of watching. Too bad they went off the air.
2004-03-23 08:58:32 AM  
I dunno Massacre. What about Family Guy?
2004-03-23 09:03:22 AM  
REPEAT From Yesterday.

/What have you done with Drew? And who's approving these links?
2004-03-23 11:45:22 AM  
What makes today's posting of this article more interesting than yesterday's posting? Is it that the submitter thinks Russ is an Aussie?

Anyone...anyone...something d-o-o...
2004-03-23 02:11:41 PM  
What happened to the fat-arsed wombat?
