A Dog Day In The Bush


Recommended Posts

G`day Fellas ,

I think You will like this one.

John Howard called Peter Costello into his office one day and said,

"Peter my boy I have a great idea! We are going to go all out to win

the country voters."

"Good idea PM, how will we go about it?" said Costello.

"Well," said Howard, "we'll get ourselves one of those Driza Bone coats,

some RM Williams boots, a stick and an Akubra hat, oh and a Blue Cattle

dog. Then we'll really look the part. We'll go to a typical old outback

country pub, we'll show them that we really at home there."

"Right PM," said Costello.

Days later, all kitted out and with the requisite Blueheeler (poor bloody

dog doesn't get to pick does he ? ) a bit, like being in the army :074: (they

set off from Canberra in a westerly direction.

Eventually they arrived at just the place they were looking for , and found

a typical outback pub. Walked in with the dog and up to the bar.

"G,day mate," said Howard, to the bartender, "two middies of your best


"Good afternoon Prime Minister," said the bartender, "two middies of our

best coming up".

Howard and Costello stood leaning on the bar drinking their beer and

chatting, nodding now and again to those who came into the bar for a drink.

The dog lay quietly at their feet.

Then , All of a sudden, the door from the adjacent bar opened and in came a grizzled old stockman, complete with stockwhip.

He walked up to the Cattle dog, lifted it's tail with the whip and looked

underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked back to the other bar.

A few moments later, in came another old stockman with his whip. He also

walked up to the dog, lifted it's tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and went

back to the other bar.

Over the course of the next hour or so, another four or five stockman came in,

lifted the dog's tail and went away looking rather puzzled.

Eventually, Howard and Costello could stand it no longer and called the

Barman over.

"Tell me my good man," said Howard, "why did all those old stockmen come in

and look under the dog's tail like that? Is it an old outback custom?"

"Strewth no!" said the barman. "It's just that someone went in and told them

that there was a Cattle dog in this bar with two arseholes!"
