I've never forgiven my mother for making me watch the Sullivans. :shock:

One thing about Aussie soaps: the Brits eat them up with a spoon. :P
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

What about Skippy, the Bush Kangeroo?

Skippy could talk and be understood! A whole chain of events could be conveyed with Skippy's chatterings! ... 'What's that Skip? ... The car has crashed? ... It's gone into a ditch? ... The oil is leaking and may cause a fire??? ...'

OR:
'What's that Skip? The Killer Koala has a woman trapped? ... By the boobies? ... and need medical aid?? ...'

Hey! You can pick on our deadly fauna and flora, our history, our accent, our thousands of kilometres of lovely sandy beaches, our great weather, our landmarks, rain forests and Hugh Jackman; but noone picks on Vegemite! :angry-tappingfoot:

ps. Mel Gibson and Russell Crowe, although touted as being Australian when convenient, were not born here.

So to everyone in Queensland, nay the whole of Australia, I offer my profuse apologies.

Let us hope the batteries run out quickly.

Yours sincerely

Its Darth saying things like: "The force is strong with this one!" and "I find your lack of faith disturbing!" (used that one a few times) "You have failed me for the last time!" "I am your father!" (use that one and overlay MOTHER for the last word when telling the girls its going all MY way) :lol:

And I SWEAR!!!!.... it went off all by itself the other day! :oops: :oops: Bloody touch sensitive buttons! Look! I hate people who carry those keyring with 1,239 keys on them. I have TWO. One for my car... one for my front door.... NOW I have Darth and the Darth talker and the token I need to get a supermarket trolley at Woollies and hald (it broke dammit) piece of rose quartz... its doing my back in!

Oh yeah.... talking toys that break!

My daughter who is now 25 had a toy as a child. It was this dolly. It said "Hold me close! I love you!" in this sweet little dolly voice with a tiny little chinese accent..... so cute. SO cute......

Until ... something... went.... wrong.....

:twisted: :twisted: :twisted: In the middle of the night I woke up to hear Truly screaming... and I ran into her room to hear this dark deep evil voice (think Darth Vader but MORE evil) coming from the end of her bed.....

And it wouldnt stop.

:twisted: HOLD ME CLOSE! HOLD ME CLOSE! HOLD ME CLOSE! I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU! :twisted:



Scared the crap out of ME!.. There was no way to get the batteries out. The only dolly she offered up to the rubbish bin!
