Sis and the roo

Haha, Sister hit a kangaroo. Dented her car. That'll learn her for going to somewhere called Boort. No problem, the Bone Doctor will pay. She said in the text that skippy bounced off the car and was ok. I was alarmed for a moment as Little Jo is also called Skippy.

Late Step Father called her that and Mother is keeping it going. Get it? Little Jo, Joey, Skip, Skippy. For you foreign types, a baby kangaroo is known as a joey.

  2. Shouldn't you also mention, for the foreign types, that Skippy was the name of a TV kangaroo, in case they miss the obvious connection between the way they move and the name?

    Even when roos do little damage they're still expensive to hit. One I hit did nothing to the car except break the grille, on closer inspection though the little darling had also cracked my radiator, draining the cooling system in the process. My only consolation was that the fucker died on impact, so I figure we were even.

    Funny about the Skippy thing, but also a HUGE relief!

  5. Bit of a scare! Hope Little Jo wasn't in the car at the same time.

  6. Possibly I should Mutant. You have now. Bad about the car. Hope you checked if there was a pouch and anything in it.

    Cazzie, Gummy Mary. I have heard that but I forget now.

    For sure Jayne.

    Ok Dina, you are an honorary Aussie.

    "My son is also named Boort."

  9. Ah Scott, not sure. It is a quote from something?

  10. Andrew, Checked the pouch - nothing in it, but a set of balls hanging out the rear told me this might be the case.

    I had to snort at Scott's comment - It's from an episode of The Simpons, something about novelty personalised number plates at Itchy and Scratchy Land.
