Pat, the cheetah logo that you suggest for Australia could have been applied to any number of teams in previous years, including England in 2006.

I know. It was a joke. England are just as capable of cheating as anyone else.

And a very good joke it was. Nudge, nudge,wink, wink, say no more.

But, of course, I will.  One of the traditional Aussie qualities I love and which I fear we may be losing is the ability to have a good laugh at ourselves. We should remember before we get too thin skinned about our peccadilloes that this country was founded on a class of migrants who weren’t entirely pure of heart.
Cheers, Jack

 Sadly I think I must have offended Les in some way.

No, the boot might be on the other foot.  Unlike Tiger, he may be too honest to flirt with two women at once.  I suspect he'll be back with his tail between his legs.

Missed your post Jack!  Think Les & I got our wires a bit crossed.  I missed his silly flirty banter & thought I might have inadvertently put my foot in it.  I'm delighted he's had a couple of dates with Karen.  Not sure he hasn't blown it by flirting with her sister ???
Pity the first 3 in the Masters were all American.  The rest of the world seemed to tail off.  Paul Casey played out of his boots yesterday.  If he hadn't bogied the last 2 holes he's have broken the course record.  I loved Charley Hoffman's hole in one.
I'm enjoying your Tommy Cooperisms :laugh:

Of course the Australian Cricket Board would never allow it but I would love to see the entire Australian team come out for the first session of their next test match decked out in an entire " cheetah " themed uniform.
I reckon that staging such a stunt where we are taking the mickey out of ourselves in the traditional Australian way,  would go a long way to alleviating a lot of the anger that cricket fans throughout the world are currently feeling.

Tiger is only half fit but still managed a 69 in the last round, apparently he is taking time off now to get back in the gym so beware when a fully rejuvinated Tiger appears in his next tournament.

Jack, i seem to remember this qoute from yourself  " who in the hell is Tommy Cooper " & i also remember Mike  quickly jumping in to explain to you just what a master comedian this man was.
I am so glad that ( & i presume it's through google ) you have familiarised yourself with some of his work & are qouting some of his famous one liners in your posts.
Just like Penny ( we have so much in common ) i am enjoying recalling those classic one liners so please keep it going as i reckon it is a fantastic homage to the master.

Karen invited me to her parents place for a home cooked meal.
Her mother took an instant liking to me & we got on famously.
It was only after several " Oozoes " that her father & i began to connect.
Kaylee is a few years younger than her big sister & with both of us having a few to many " Oozoes " iour innocent flriting got a little out of hand.
That led to Karen taking Kaylee into the hallway where a little bit of a sisterly argument ensued.
Since then Karen had rung me to advise that she & Kaylee have sorted out there differences & suggested that the three of us go out for dinner.
The flirting between Kaylee & myself continued, it was more exaggerated than ever but it did not matter because Karen understood that it was all in fun.
I have even showed Karen some of the posts exchanged between myself & Penny on Chi & she thought that they were hillarious.
There was some discussion about us moving in together but neither of us were prepared to give up our castle so for the time being we are just casually dating when it is convenient for both of us.
I know that when i next visit the family home, i will be greeted by a huge hug from mother, a firm handshake from Dad & endless flirting from Kaylee.

Gosh Les, this is starting to sound serious.  :-P

He’ll have to get a bigger apartment if all three of them move in together.  Sounds like Mother might want to come too! >:D ;D :police:

Les, I have to follow your example and make a confession even though it will lower the opinion you, Pen and Mike might have of my sense of humour.  Yes, I did have to go to Dr Google to find out who Tommy Cooper was and I did find a site with a lot of his one liners, and after I deleted the ones which disparaged his wife and which I thought were not funny, I put them away for later use.  I also watched 3 videos of his work on YouTube and I'm afraid I was less than impressed.  I am willing to believe it was a poor sample and not his best work but it was all I had to go on. 

However, I have a half dozen or so of his one liners left and I will dribble them out from time to time, if for no other reason that you and Pen have said you would appreciate it.
Cheers, Jack

You’re not alone, Jack. I never found Tommy Cooper funny.

I've been enjoying them too, so I hope you can find a few more.

I have.  I'll feed them in alternately.

Love Billy Connolly Jack.  Was watching a very old programme of his the other evening.  It was an audience with Billy Connolly.  The audience was full of "celebrities".  He did the Crème de Menthe joke about the two Scotsmen in Rome & the Big Slipper among other stories.  Very funny.  He made a programme a few years ago when he travelled round Oz on a three wheeled motor bike.  I think it was a doctor there who spotted that he might have Parkinsons disease.  I think he noticed that his gait wasn't quite right & advised him to get it checked out. I may have that wrong as my memory aint what it used to be!

You're not Robinson Crusoe, Pen.  I remember that I watched and enjoyed every episode of Billy's journey around Australia but I can't remember one detail apart from his bike.  It must have been at least 20 years ago.

I am a bit tired at the moment.  Today was our weekly pilgrimage to Brighton Lakes course on the outskirts of Sydney and we have not long got home..  It is only 80 Kms (50 miles) and at the time we leave (6am) it usually takes 45-50 minutes.  But this morning it was clogged and took 80 minutes so it was rush onto the tee without a warm up.  And I have a border Collie with big pleading eyes expecting to be taken for a walk.  Catch you tomorrow.
