Dear Mr. V-Jelly,

Thanks for clearing that one up, Mr Jelly. Hang on, isn't the I.O.M. part of the UK? I too ventured there as a young sprog and got altitude sickness atop the Laxey Wheel. Saw Agostini practising for the TT as well. Lasted for about 0.2 seconds but the grown-ups got pretty worked up over it! My pick for the Melbourne Cup yesterday ran seventh, so it's back to work today, and there's always next year......

Oh no sirree bob. Although part of the British Isles the IoM is, in fact, a
colony just like you lot! It's got a governor (who disappointingly doesn't have
one of those ceremonial hats with a dead chicken on it), it's own government,
language, brewery and a motorcycle rather than horse race.

Strewth! I mentioned this to the blokes at the pub and we all reckon the Isle of Man must be Australia's long-lost mutant-dwarf twin, separated at birth a bit like Arnie and Danny de Vito in that fillum!
Cheers! Bruce S.

Well, the size differential would be appropriate. Does that mean that you are
the pidgin english speaking gormless beefcake?

My name is Martin, the Bruce Sharknet was a feeble attempt at adding some
regional flavour, which I shall abandon forthwith...

Actually, from what I saw in the papers recently you might be safer in the
sea with the great whites. Article claimed that Horsetrylia was being overrun by
giant crocodiles. Said the crocs had been thought to be on their way out a few
years ago but were now back with a vengeance and, having run out of backpackers
to munch, were now encroaching on isolated houses and communities.
