Drunk Australian’s attracted to crocodiles (and the Queen’s biscuit tin?)
TWO stories from Australia about drunken men an crocodiles.
In Australia’s Northern Territory, three men high on hooch refused to budge when their brand new Toyota Troop Carrier four-wheel-drive got stuck in the middle of a crocodile-infested creek at Cahill’s Crossing on the road from Gunbalanya to Jabiru . Police pulled them free. Then arrested them all when no-one would own up to being the driver.
Earlier this month, a man dressed only in a sun hat attempted to paddle across the crocodile-infested Northern Territory’s Daly River on a log. His antics won him two cases of bourbon.
Doubtless psychologists and traffic police can delve into why a man should feel safer on a log than in a huge car.
PS: Anyone know what happened to the crocodile in a biscuit tin the people of Gambia gave the Queen in 1961? Did she give it to a drunk Australian?
