Many of the early explorers of this fair land of Oz survived on dead camel parts .... well .... for a while, anyway.

Gotta be worthy of a vote.

Cheers,

    Explains why those antipodeans get the hump when asked if their ancestors paid for their passage or had it supplied free. (Actually if I were a tad younger and my wife more agreable I think I'd try to emigrate there so please take this in the right spirit.)

    Why no mention of dead sheep parts? Or since it's the most widely consumed meat in the world, dead goat parts?

    Mmmm! Goat curry, roti, plantain, sweet potatoes, fresh mangos. Good rum and lots of time in the sunshine.

      Why no mention of dead sheep parts?

      Obviously didn't want to upset the New Zealanders ;-)

      And speaking of goats ... a friend of mine was recently accused of having made love to a goat ... but it's not as bad as you might think. (His wife was accused of acting the goat.)

      Cheers,
      Rob

        ...many of whom make their living selling dead sheep parts, no?

        At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.

      Hear hear! My brother, bless him, is roasting a lamb for Thanksgiving. I only hope that, this time, he remembers that the lamb goes on the spit, not vice versa.

    How? Did they bring them with them? If I recall, camels are not native to Oz.

      There is, however, a substantial feral population estimated at up to 700,000 in central parts of Australia, descended from individuals introduced as means of transport in the 19th century and early 20th century. This population is growing at approximately 11% per year and in recent times the state government of South Australia has decided to cull the animals using aerial marksmen, the reason being that the camels use too much of the limited resources needed by sheep farmers. For more information, see Australian feral camel.
