Ooh, Vegemite news. Didn't expect to see the word 'moonshine' appear:

I read a story on that earlier today. I think it would really solve all alcohol related problems in Australia if it were restricted. Everyone knows it's the only substance known from which moonshine can be made.

EDIT: I do hope it will continue to be produced for export, though. Otherwise I'll have to start stocking up.

My former employer occasionally sent around directives to the effect that all caps should not be used on account of it looking rude or something.

I saw that on the BBC news yesterday, too. I am travelling and BBC News appears on channel 120 on the service my hosts subscribe to. I get to watch at odd times of the day when they are doing something else. Otherwise I need to make do with TV in a language I do not know. Kind of takes the fun out of it - quickly get bored of only getting the major drama pictures part of the story. On Saturday they did have footage of a China Airlines cargo 747 at the TPE airport getting enough lift from the typhoon windspeed to bounce the front wheel up and down 3-4 feet off the ground - after the movement of the suspension.

Mark, don't mention the rugby!... oh. you didn't!
Ha! And then the Springboks got thumped by the Pumas too. A weekend of rugby upsets, alright!
Dang! Sunday morning was freezing on the bicycle. I did not brave the horizontal rain weather for the Saturday afternoon club race, so felt suitably guilty Sunday morning.

Vegemite would not be my first choice for moonshine!

You are fearless, Parallax.


President Obama once quipped of it: "So it's like a quasi-vegetable by-product paste that you smear on your toast for breakfast.” said Obama. “Sounds good, doesn't it?"


I think the secret is to only lightly spread it ... it's just not peanut butter and jelly!


Donald Trump's views on the matter are unknown.

On the internet it is the equivalent to SHOUTING.

Maybe he meant Ted.

Ted.

The bokeh is how the vegemite jars would look after consuming the moonshine made from their contents.

Wonder what the magic recipe is. Anyone know?

They did say something like that.

Not nice getting shouted at.

Just guessing. The ingredients will have to be available at a remote Northern Territory or whatever general store.

Potatoes, sugar, water and Vegemite to end up with a vodka?

Really? That must be "samohonka" - cheesy translation: pursue yourself. Or...sorry to write it. Do it yourself. So it's a DIY vodka: D

You call it..moonshine

Yes, 'harsh transitions in OoF areas' would probably actually mean ''purple lizards telling me to take my clothes off".

I just realised that the hociR seems to reward its minions in a monetary way. Last year, not that long after I caved this was the result when I went to withdraw a few bucks from an cash machine...

Tokyo is doomed!
