A snakebite is an alcoholic drink made with equal parts of lager and cider.

Black Velvet - now your talking, yes I remember them from my Youf
in those days we went out and got tanked now for some reason they get tanked up before they go out, can't see how that's cool
OTOH they don't force their toes into winkle pickers

I am assuming that the Pokemon Go phenomenon has hit Australia and the picture with the truck  is a response to the game (no pun intended).

TRUE STORY
Years ago I spotted what I thought was a cute cuddly Koala walking along the back fence,
when I stood next to it for a photo it reached across & climbed onto me & dug one of those 4"
claws deep into my arm...    & I still have the scar to prove it..

Moral of the story.. You can not tell the difference from a Drop Bear or Koala until it's too late *dunno*    *countdown*
