    This is for the Aussies. Do any of you have a picture of a wallaby? It may sound like a strange request but I have always liked the cartoon "Rocko's Modern Life" but don't quite know what he is supposedly drawn from.

    Just wondering.

    Lol really ?

    I've noticed that with most shows and movies etc , where a non-aussie has tried to pull off an aussie accent , they do an embarrasingly bad job of it lol.... me and whoever else is watching the tv at the time just sit there and go :

    " Dunno about an aussie accent but they're doing ok at that south african-kiwi-british accent ...." :scratch: :lol:

    Yet a lot of irish folk can mimic our accent perfectly !
    I love the irish :sillysmi:
