Gut Rumbles

June 14, 2005

hands across the water

This one came from Henry Blowfly, who lives in the Land Down Under and comments frequently on my blog:

Great blog, one of my regular reads, and the beach at Scarborough, Western Australia now has a regular "Georgia Half Rubber" game during the summer months, it started with me and a few few ol' fart mates, then a couple of younguns joined in, then a couple of the young "dolly birds" had a go, (which adds a whole new dimension to the game), and the ol' farts now sit back and mind the beer, and enjoy the view:-)

Tell me that a blog can't be a influence on other people. I am humbled by the fact that I may have played a small role in exporting a beach game invented on Tybee Island, Georgia, halfway around the world to Australia. THAT is true cultural exchange, because very few people in the USA ever heard of half-rubber.

And Henry says he's going to send me some Vegemite as a gesture of gratitude. That kind of thing makes this Cracker boy proud.


What's a "Georgia Half-Rubber?"

Are you sure Vegemite wouldn't qualify as revenge?

Hmmmmm Half Rubber for Vegemite? Henry got the much better end of that swap! Put it out for the cats when you get it. Much more effective than a pellet gun.........

Exporting Vegemite might be considered an act of terrorism.

I think I'd be pretty pissed off if I was all ready to play and found I only had a half of a rubber.

As for Vegemite, it is NOT the same as licking a hot asphalt road in the deep South at high noon in August ... the road is much smoother and tastier!

Vegemite yes, but I haven't met Acidman so I can't compare yet ;)

She's a keeper, Rob, so don't go pissing her off!

Vegemite makes excellent fertilizer. Come to think of it, it tastes like fertilizer.

Vegemite is food of the gods I tell you.

You American philistines have no taste.

If the Vegemite doesn't get confiscated by US Customs as a "suspected biological agent" it's on its way to the crackerbox as we speak.
