Australian Outback Humour, Tall Yarns and Bulldust.

The Australian sense of humour was born of convict blood, hopeful gold diggers, itinerant bush workers, canny swagmen, iron-back bush women, laconic soldiers, sweaty factory workers and larrikin city-slickers. Above all it is the humour of a pioneering country where men, women and children battled with an idiosyncratic climate where the uncertainty of droughts, floods and bushfires were always around the corner.

This collection is a sampling of the Australian sense of humour and a good example of our living folklore. Although they are similar to jokes, and some have had circulation as jokes, they are quite different. They are descendants of a tradition of storytelling that has all but disappeared. They spin a yarn, drawing the listener in, inviting you to meet characters like lazy Len, Dad and Dave, and Sandy the Shearer. They are keys to our past and our unique culture.
