Welcome to Australian Day!!
a service brought to you free of charge by The World of Zed

Hey, mates, what are you bringing to keep this party hopping?
I'll supply the following for the Australian Day party:
A four-color map of the beautiful country of Australia
400 wallabies
4000 kangaroos
200 bush tuckers (whatever they are)

Clamato tortilla chips--you KNOW you like 'em you Aussies you!!

Fact: Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. It's approximately the same size as the 48 contiguous states of the US and is 50 percent larger than Europe, but has the lowest population density in the world--only two people per square kilometre. (I'm pretty sure the state of New Jersey has more people than that per square inch.)
In the comments section of this blog, list one or two items of food, drinks, books, songs, people dead or alive, etc., that you plan on contributing to this party to make it rock.

And don't forget to think AUSTRALIA, people.
It's an AUSTRALIAN DAY PARTY for crying out loud!!

I'll bring Superwoman cause she always gets told she looks like Nicole Kidman (an aussie). Also I'll pack along vegemite to force-feed to anyone that gets too rowdy.

Yeah!!! Nice party!

Vegemite sandwiches for everyone.
Washed down with a Fosters beer.

And we can have Tim Tam biscuits and Twisties chips and party pies and watch the football or watch the movie Chopper. Nah, The Castle DVD.

Seriously, I will have a toast to you all tonight.

To celebrate I cooked and ate a koala bear for breakfast.

It was yummy.

Hey Zed!,
Great get together!, I've invited well known singer & artist Rolf Harris to give us a few verses of 'Tie me Kangaroo down' and digeridoo's for us all to play along.
It goes something like this:

There's an old Australian stockman, lying, dying,
and he gets himself up on one elbow, and he turns to his mates,
who are gathered 'round him and he says:

Tie me kangaroo down sport,
tie me kangaroo down.
Tie me kangaroo down sport,
tie me kangaroo down.

Play your digeridoo, Blue,
play your digeridoo.
Keep playing 'til I shoot thro' Blue, play your digeridoo.
Altogether now!

Tan me hide when I'm dead, Fred,
tan me hide when I'm dead.
So we tanned his hide when he died Clyde,
(Spoken) And that's it hanging on the shed.
Altogether now!

I've also brought along some Witchetty Grubs for afters.

Witchetty Grubs washed down with some of Scarlet's Fosters....

I'm gonna bring photos of Steve Irwin and the Great Barrier Reef. Maybe some of the sea life as well since the ocean over there is so beautiful.

oh yeah, Keith Urban as well, no Nicole, even though I like her. Just Keith, for us ladies.

I think Men at Work went back down under...

I've got nothing to bring. I'm such a loser.

You guys are awesome! You've kept the party going without me (late start today).

I'm bringing a croc in a little while. We can either cook him up or cut him up--your choice!

sans pantaloons,
it's scarey, but I KNOW that song Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport. I think we used to sing that as kids--thanks for the reminder... :)

Someone please pass a Vegemite sandwich please!

I brought along a case of beer 'cos I heard someone was asking after me.
Please feel free to visit my website and listen to some MP3 samples of my new work.

Hey, a vegemite sarnie, nosher!
Great party!

Gosh, Colin, if I had known you were coming to the party I'd have hired a band. Darn.

Have one of the Fosters beer that Scarlet brought. You two know each other right? Doesn't everyone in Australia KNOW each other?? :)

Well, welcome Matey! I'm wresting a croc this afternoon and bringing him along. Oh, and here's a bush tucker ...

Would it be too tacky and too soon to bring the ghost of Steve Irwin? He's hungry and there's some great food here. Okay, okay, too tacky. How about two little koala bears with pink bows in their hair? Now that's tacky. Maybe I'll bring more Tim Tam biscuits and jsut shut up. LOL

The crocodile has arrived people (see the original post). He's a beauty, mates! Let's let him live!

He likes it when you try to tickle his stomach.

Marzi, bring more Clamato tortilla chips. You just can't have enough of those--they're a crowd pleaser. :)

Nicole, I feel compelled to tell you that Keith left a while ago with Colin Hay.

First Tom, now this. I'm so sorry.

This is Prime Minister John Howard of Australia--what exactly do you people think you're doing here?

Pass me a vegemite sandwich and beer and let's get this party going, mates!

Jen, Hugh Jackman is MINE!

Hugh Jackman is under the stairs with Zed, looks like they are licking each others lips,
Rolf Harris is dancing with Nicole Kidman,
Teri is looking for Keith Urban,
Keith Urban left with Colin Hay, some motel was mentioned...
and the crocodile is eating John Howard...

What a partay......!

WOO HOO!!!!!!!!

Hugh Jackman and I were having a great time smooching under the stairs when all of a sudden he got a call on his cell, jumped up, and said, "Zed, my sweet, so sorry to rush off. I need to go join Keith and Colin at the motel." And off he went.

I don't know what he meant by that. Why did he have to leave--why???

I think I'll go have some more Clamato juice and chips...

this is the best party I've ever been too. Who would have thunk that the Aussie's could give such a great time.

I'm late (what else is new), but I've got some deep fried stingray. I have it on good authority that it's the very one that killed Steve Irwin. This particular one was taken off the endangered list (but I'm honestly not sure if stingrays are on that list anyway).

Why do I ramble so? Deep fried stingray goes best with a delicate tartar sauce for dipping, by the way.

Pass the tartar sauce. This stingray's had it! Beer, Amy?

Sorry, I've got gas.
Must be something I ate.

Blogger Zed said...

Ewwwwww! Ewwwwww! Ewwwwwww!

Oh, alright, you can live. But take your gas-bloated body to the other side of the room, croc. And don't hurt anybody. Didn't your mama teach you any manners?

a polite crocodile would have given out some sort of warning.

Wow this party is great! The best yet! Blimey!

Thanks, Mel! Those Aussies sure know how to party!

EVERYONE: The croc's getting getting ready to leave and will be stopping to say goodbye to you all. Please be gracious--he's so sorry about the "gas" incident.

Ok-- I did as Zed advised and I went to Google and this is what I will bring...

wattleseed spiced emu sprinkled with a sprig of mountain pepper and a handful of bunya nuts.

Ok... may I stick my toothbrush down my throat now?

Oh, that's right, I have drugs. Syrup of Ipecac anyone?

Why, the emu is delish, Doctor Mom!!
Please pass some down as well as the tartar sauce.
