Aussie rules


Humor / Monday, March 5th, 2007

You can’t run forward for through passes in touch footy – even if all that space looks inviting!

Don’t order Indian food in Sydney (in my defence it was the only place open at 10 pm)

Switch your phone off when you go to sleep in foreign country else people might try to sell you credit cards at 2 am.

Don’t ask to bum a fag, they call it a ciggie.

Tongs and Thongs are different things

Don’t wear team jerseys to your first time soccer practice – unless you know teams followed by the people you are practicing with.

Don’t bet money on poker – unless you can remember that it’s 5 cards not 3.

Look for the ring before you start chatting someone – aussie women look a lot younger.
