Indeed. Any Ozzie would know m8 right off, that was the minor joke good for .25 chuckles.

I was saying sorry for the confusion, BTW.

It's a little like g`day and that aint gee`day.
It's as Aussie as pie and chips at the footie or FJ Holden or she'll be right m8 or cooee cobber or hows it hang'n.
It's flamen Aussie m8 like the song from men at work "I come from a land down under where women glow and men thunder". I'm sure you remember losing the 'Americas' Cup" for the first time in a thousand years to this theme song.
Dennis Conner you made my day.

Na m8 thats NZ. close.
By the way have you heard the one about the NZ farmer from way out in the back blocks?
Went to the Vets with a prob with his sheep.
Vets advice was artificial insemination.
What's that the farmer asked.
Vet says well if nature doesn't work you have to do it yourself artificially.
How will I know if they're pregnant the farmer asks.
If they're pregnant they will be lying down and if not they will be standing says the vet.
Next day farmer loads sheep into Land Rover takes them into top paddock and does the deed himself (well that's what the vet said to do)
Next morning the farmer worn out by his efforts the day before raises himself from bed and askes his wife "are the sheep laying down". "No", is the reply.
Frustrated and weary the farmer drags himself out of bed and loads them all into the Land Rover again, takes them up to the top paddock and does the deed again, all 30 of them.
Next morning completely exhausted the farmer askes his wife weakly "are the sheep laying down"
"No", came the reply "they are all in the Land Rover and one is blowing the horn". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif
