        I would never have thought to experience Australians complaining
about a too liberal use of abbreviations and acronyms! When moving to
Sydney for a year back in 1993, it took me months to avoid getting lost
in the cockies and kookies, garbos and salvos, and I never mastered half
of the frequent acronyms. But apparently this can be too much even for you!

  Just like the old fart living out in the donga in the bush up north in
the 'cacia' country who used to see black nuns flying around.    Now I'm
confused !
