      >> Yeah, or you could drink beer instead.
      >Right, Fosters (ever been kicked by a kangaroo?)
      Kangaroo piss more like it. Let's go for top shelf instead of the urinal, try something like Carlsberg or if you want Aussie beer try Cooper's Pale Ale ;^) Stix, or Cascade.

      Hey!  I was led to believe that Fosters was crap, and that the various Australian microbrews were the way to go.  If that's the case, then wouldn't offering a Fosters to a visitor be an insult?  Another way of saying, "Your palette[sic] probably cannot descriminate between a quality beer and kangaroo piss, so there's no need to waste the good stuff on you.  Here, have a Fosters." :)

      Hey Billy, stop drinking kangaroo piss for breakfast and wake up.
