Favourite answer for some time : -

SOrry , I forgot about this when I wrote the last post earlier.

It was my quiz at the rugby club on Thursday, and as one of the old chestnuts I asked - which well known australian aboriginal word roughly translates into english as 'I don't know ' ? - the answer being kangaroo.

ON the next round, one of the teams, Vestas - answered the first 9 questions, then put kangaroo for the answer to the tenth. I am ashamed to say that it took me five minutes to twig what they meant.

Hate to point this out, but the idea that "kangaroo" means "I don't know" is an urban myth...

Hi Andrew

That stands to reason. Its far too good a story to be true.
