Croatian holiday virgin on the ridiculous

Experiencing a lack of Dalmatians on the Dalmatian Coast (C8) is not lost on Peter Procopis of Bowral who “couldn’t find a barber in Seville”. Bill Hardy of Caddens says it’s the same in the Virgin Islands: “There are no Dalmatians there either.” Wonder if either of them have been to Punchbowl?

“I cannot understand how anybody can compare petrol prices (C8) and coffee prices,” writes Chrissie Whitlock of Earlwood. “The satisfaction from a large long black versus Premium 98 doesn’t cut it for me.”

Seems there are folks in public life who think they surpass a need to show ID (C8) and while Granny would like to have seen ’em try to get into the Comb and Cutter in the ’80s, Charles Davies-Scourfield of Culburra Beach wonders if maybe the tale of Sir Michael Somare might actually be an urban myth. Nonetheless, he is reminded of the time “Reserve Bank Governor Bernie Fraser identified himself with his signature on the $20 note when buying a drink at Schiphol Airport several decades back. Apparently, the drink vendor was doubtful about the authenticity of the note. Perhaps Bernie can verify the story, or otherwise?”

Mary Porter of Watsons Bay was working in an upmarket store in Double Bay in the ’70s when a limousine pulled up with a customer. “He spent an incredible amount of money. I asked him for ID. He showed me the key to the penthouse at The Hilton. I told him I would need to know his name for verification. Abdallah, came the reply. I asked for his first name. ‘Prince’ he laughed. The only one not laughing was his driver. Apparently, the Prince drove around town playing AC/DC at full volume.”

“The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque 2.0 TD4 E-Capability 4×4 HSE Dynamic has the longest car name (C8) in the world,” claims Peter Miniutti of Ashbury. “For short, most would just call it expensive.”

We’re getting pretty well versed in misheard lyrics (C8) and reckon some of them should replace the existing ones, like the line in Because of You by Kelly Clarkson that Graham Johnson of Sutherland thought he heard: “Because of you, I never stray too far from the Cyborg”.

Cathy van den Bovenkamp of Turramurra discovered it’s a fine line between Icehouse and The Wiggles when her daughter, in singing along to Great Southern Land made the amendment Fruit Salad Man.
