hi guys/Morris, (Bet that's Aussie slang for Fish & chips)
Edit; Kiwi slang of course!
 It`s Dutch taking the mick out of the way Kiwi`s pronounce the i in fish or any other word, sounds like a ou. Not sure how the Aussie`s say it but the Kiwi`s certainly have a way with the English language,cheers

hi, guys, don`t know about the food but the bevvies are the best.  After  years as a young fella in London  and a frequent visitor to the `Beer Cellars` and other places, i can vouch for a lager called `Dortmunder` sunk a few of them. Dutch, i will be in Moo`ba on the 19-26 Nov in the `Mantra` and i know what i will be doing, not much, be good to catch up,cheers

When we did Berlin last year, I got by with ' un gross doonkle, dunke.'
After you have had 6 or 7 you need to say 'nein, ich bin kaput'
Fabulous place.
cheers

A dogs eye or also known as a mystery bag.

 ''Holla'' in my dictionary, is 'an exclamation to someone at a distance, in order to call attention or in answer'...." Moo'ba " is a lazy/easy/local way of saying 'Mooloolabah'

 Yea can do what you like with the dogs eyes....and maggot bags...... *ex*

"dead flies grave yard"
Eccles cake - Delicious, takes more than a graphic description to put me off, although I'm not sure I could face a bag of Willocks these days (Winkles I think in more educated circles), got a bagful for a tanner as we came out of school and ate them on the bus, used to pick them out of their shells with a pin, looked like a bogie, and the sand used to keep your teeth sharp

 Well, that's what is what remains of the actual original....(souvenir hunters).... *conf*

 It ended up there, because put it at the bottom didn't work- keep meaning to do something about that...

After a night on the turps, *beer* many years ago, a mate & I decided to ride from
100kms North of Melbourne to Adelaide for a Pie Floater...  *eek*
rode the 1st 800Kms with a hang over & returned the next day feeling crook from the floater..
Worst bloody thing I've ever eaten...   *countdown*
