:lol: What a plonker!

Interestingly, the word "hello" hasn't always been a greeting. It was originally used as an expression of surprise. It started being used as a greeting with the invention of the telephone. One of the original greetings or salutations when answering a phone was "Ahoy-hoy!" This is the version that Mr Burns uses in The Simpsons. :D

Oh dear, someone didn't think that one through!
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

Brisbane eh? The more I hear about Brissy and its inhabitants, the more I think it's some sort of "special" place. :lol:
