Greetings Salutations and G'day

Well while Tony and our IT Empire plus sundry hangers on are basking in the
sun on the Gold Coast us loyal Claytonians are hard at it in grey old
Melbournetown in the cold and the rain.  They're actually attending the
annual IT gabfest and must find it hard going staying at the five star
Marriott Hotel in Surfers Paradise.  Tony - we are all feeling sorry for you
having to endure so much.  Hopefully you'll be able to stay awake for some
of the official bits and pieces.

First up this week from Unilever Joe in the UK


Have you ever wondered where and how yodelling began?

Here's the real version....

Many years ago a man was travelling through the mountains of Switzerland.

Nightfall was rapidly approaching and he had nowhere to sleep. He went up to
a farmhouse and asked the farmer if he could spend the night. The farmer
told him that he could sleep in the barn.

As the story goes, the farmer's daughter asked her father, "Who is that man
going into the barn?"

"That fellow travelling through," said the farmer, "needs a place to stay
for the night, so, I told him he could sleep in the barn."

The daughter said, "Perhaps he is hungry." So she prepared him a plate of
food for him and then took it out to the barn.

About an hour later, the daughter returned. Her clothing dishevelled and
straw in her hair. Straight up to bed she went.

The farmer's wife was very observant. She then suggested that perhaps the
man was thirsty. So she fetched a bottle of wine, took it out to the barn,
and she too did not return for an hour. Her clothing was askew, her blouse
buttoned incorrectly. She also headed straight to bed.

The next morning at sunrise the man in the barn got up and continued on his
journey, waving to the farmer as he left.

When the daughter awoke and learned that the visitor was gone, she broke
into tears. "How could he leave without even saying good-bye," she cried.
"We made such passionate love last night!"

"What?" shouted the father as he angrily ran out of the house looking for
the man, who by now was halfway up the mountain.

The farmer screamed up at him, "I'm going to get you! You had sex with my

The man looked back down from the mountainside, cupped his hand next to his
mouth, and yelled out.....

                           The Kiwi Test....

The following test was written for a Waitangi Day party we threw a few years
back. We were amused by the apparent lack of awareness for NZ holidays
(despite being listed in the Gary Larson Calendars) so we set out to educate
our mates on Kiwi trivia.

The questions are by no means definitive and loads of juicy in-jokes have
been missed out (the Goodnight Kiwi for instance - the joke's no fun if you've
never seen the thing ... should be in bed anyways :-) There is a slight ethnic
tinge to the questions, but as a Maori I like to take the piss out of myself
more than anything else so no flames please.

Incidentally, the answers were rated (by a somewhat dodgy set of standards,
but its my questionnaire so tuff if you disagree :-) and scored. I have
included these results in brackets. At the end is a total sheet to see if
you passed or not.

   A couple of Trina quickies (so to speak)

                           Santa's reindeer

While both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year,
according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, male reindeer drop
their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to

Female reindeer retain their antlers until after they give birth in the

A man in his 40's bought a new BMW and was out on the interstate for a nice
evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was
left of his hair, and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped up to
80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him.

"There's no way they can catch a BMW," he thought to himself and opened her
up further. The needle hit 90, 100.... then the reality of the situation hit

"What the hell am I doing?" he thought and pulled over.

The cop came up to him, took his licence without a word, and examined it and
the car. "It's been a long day, this is the end of my shift, and it's Friday
the 13th. I don't feel like more paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse
for your driving that I haven't heard before, you can go."

The guy thinks for a second and says, "Last week my wife ran off with a cop.
I was afraid you were trying to give her back."

"Have a nice weekend," said the officer.

                        How to train a wife...

A couple was celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. Their domestic
tranquillity had long been the talk of the town. A local newspaper reporter
was inquiring as to the secret of their long and happy marriage.

"Well, it dates back to our honeymoon," explained the woman. "We visited the
Grand Canyon and took a trip down to the bottom of the canyon by pack mule.
We hadn't gone too far when my husbands's mule stumbled. My husband quietly
said, 'That's once.'

We proceeded a little farther and the mule stumbled again. Once more my
husband quietly said, 'That's twice.'

We hadn't gone a half-mile when the mule stumbled a third time. My husband
quietly removed a revolver from his pocket and shot the mule dead. I started
to protest over his treatment of the mule when he looked at me and quietly
said, 'That's once.' "

   Hu Jintao was recently named chief of the Communist Party in China.
   Condoleezza Rice, the US Security Advisor, flew home with the news.

                       CARLTON FOOTBALL CLUB

         [Sung to the tune of American Pie by Don Mclean]

 Long long time ago, I can still remember how Fraser Brown made Dean Wallis cry
 And I knew if he had the chance, Steven O'Reilly could play defence
 And maybe we'd avoid the spoon for a while.

 But Demetriou makes me shiver
 With every infringement he delivers
 Bad news for the Blue set
 Long service leave will get us yet

 I can't remember if I cried, when Riccardi beat our withered side
 But something touched me deep inside
 The day our dignity died

 So bye bye picks one and two, bye
 Can't have Goddard, can't have Salopek, no pick allowed high
 Those losers at the Saints will again pick the draft dry
 Singing "this will be the day that Jack dies"
 Singing "this will be the day that Jack dies"

 Do you remember 93
 When Jack accused Kevin Sheedy
 That the Dons had cheated bad

 And the flag was won in 95
 When Diesel skinned the Cats alive
 Norm Smith and a lazy 5

 Well I know we didn't cheat back then
 'Coz our Captain was Sticks Kernahan.
 He sang for me and youse
 We are the Navy Blues

 I was a lonely feral Italian drunk
 Thought we never be short nine million bucks
 But in the end we ran out of luck
 The day our draft picks flied

 The rest were singing
 Bye Bye picks one and two bye
 See ya Wells, see ya Goddard, poor old Barb has just cried
 Come on down to the Saints, get onto the ride
 Coz the Blues have just blatantly lied
 The Blues have just blatantly lied

 Did you fiddle the books from above
 Did you give Hamill a great big shove
 Yes the bible* told us so.

 Well, Kouta proved he's a great big Queen
 And you can say much the same about Peter Dean
 With a voice that came from It-al-y

 And while old SOS was bending down
 Darren Milburn knocked off his girly crown
 Do you recall that lovely sound
 The day, the Blues fans cried.

 And we were laughing ?
 Bye Bye to the Blues as a side
 Time is fleeting
 They're caught cheating
 And Lance Whitnall is wide
 And Tig-er fans wipe tears of joy from their eyes
 Saying 'time to pay for all of those lies'
 Now lets see the same for the Pies.'

 I met this bloke who loved the Blues
 And I asked him for some footy news
 But he just sobbed and turned away

 So I went down to old Princes Park
 To hang some shiit for a bit of a lark
 But the fans there admitted Carlton cannot play

 And on the street the Demons cheered
 The Bombers laughed and the Hawkers leered
 Happy words were spoken
 Even Saints fans were all jokin'

 And the two men that most make me sick
 That mongrel Diesel and that dickhead Sticks
 They stabbed poor Jack for an easy fix
 The day their loyalty died.
 So Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
 Big Jack got stabbed in the back by Sticks
 'Cause liars are the Devil's only friends.

 And as I watch him on the stage
 Muttering somethin' 'bout SOS's wage
 No Iti born in Rome
 Could run that Telstra Dome

 And as the cigarette smoke rose into the day
 To hide all evidence of SOS's pay
 I saw Satan's presidency blown away
 The day Blues' draft picks dried
 So why why, Craig and Steve, tell us why
 Sold us out to the League, so your arses won't fry
 You've screwed up the club, the cheque book has run dry
 Mick Martyn is now all we can buy.....

Her face was a perfect oval, like a circle that had its two sides gently

His thoughts tumbled in his head, making and breaking alliances like
underpants in a dryer without Cling Free.

He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who
went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes
with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high
schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those
boxes with a pinhole in it.

She grew on him like she was a colony of E. coli and he was room-temperature
Canadian beef.

She had a deep, throaty, genuine laugh, like that sound a dog makes just

Her vocabulary was as bad as, like, whatever.

He was as tall as a six-foot-three-inch tree.

The revelation that his marriage of 30 years had disintegrated because of
his wife's infidelity came as a rude shock, like a surcharge at a formerly

McBride fell 12 stories, hitting the pavement like a Hefty bag filled with

Her hair glistened in the rain like a nose hair after a sneeze.

The hailstones leaped from the pavement, just like maggots when you fry them

Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the

They lived in a typical suburban neighborhood with picket fences that
