Mmmm, lamb dipped in choco then rolled in coconut.

"It's called a Lamington. Could use some Vegemite. Those Australians sure do eat funny."

Have we accomplished half of what we dreamt we would? There may still be time.

Vegimite is the Nectar of the gods. Nearly every Aussie was raised with vegimite.

The only reason they learn Australian is so they can get a job as a telephone marketer or service centre

I had the (dis)honour of tasting vegimite this year on my Australian trip.

I think it must be like that rotten fish they eat up in norway/finland/sweden. You must have tasted it before your tastebuds have developed fully, otherwise its waaaaytoo late (yuck!).

By the way, those videos are no end of funny, I sent them to my brother and all my Australian friends.

I'm glad you said nearly. I hate the stuff, it's an acquired taste that I've never acquired.
