Hilarious and Funny Aussie Jokes

Aussie Takes a Dive

Monty Kelly, a rich man who lived near Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia decided that he wanted to throw a party.  So he invited his buddies including Darel, the only Aborigine in the neighborhood.

The party was held around the pool in the backyard of Monty’s mansion. Everyone was having a good time dancing, eating prawns, and oysters, and drinking and flirting.

At the height of the party, the host said, ‘I have a 16ft man-eating crocodile in my pool and I’ll give a million dollars to anyone who has the balls to jump in.’

The words were barely out of Monty’s mouth when there was a loud splash and everyone turned around and saw Darel in the pool fighting the croc, jabbing the croc in the eyes with his thumbs, throwing punches, doing all kinds of stuff like head butts and choke holds, biting the croc on the tail and flipping the croc through the air like some kind of Judo Instructor.

The water was churning and splashing everywhere. Both Darel and the Croc were screaming and raising hell. Finally, Darel strangled the croc and let it float to the top like a dead goldfish.

Darel then slowly climbed out of the pool. Everybody was just staring at him in disbelief.  The Monty says, ‘Well, Darel, I reckon I owe you a million dollars.’ ‘Nah, you all right boss, I don’t want it,’ said Darel.

The rich man said, ‘Man, I have to give you something. You won the bet. How about a new car?’

‘No thanks. I don’t want it,’ answered Darel.

The host said, ‘Come on, I insist on giving you something. That was amazing. How about a new Rolex watch and some stock options?  Again, Darel said “No.”

Confused, the rich man asked, ‘Well Darel, then what do you want?

Darel said, ‘I just want the b****** who pushed me in.’

Presidents of Australia, Russia, and the USA Go to Hell

John Howard, Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell. While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The Devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 15 minutes. When he is finished the Devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes a cheque.

Obama calls the US and talks for an hour. When he is finished the Devil informs him that the cost is 4 million dollars, so he writes a cheque.

Finally, John Howard gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished the Devil informs him that the cost is 25 cents. Howard just smiles.

Obama and Putin go ballistic and ask the Devil why Howard got to call Australia for only 25 cents.

The devil smiles and replies: “Since Julia Gillard took over, the whole country has gone to hell. It’s a local call.”

An Aussie Jobsworth

A Funny Story from the Australian Gas Company

In March 1999 a man living in Kandos (near Mudgee in NSW, Australia) received a bill for his as yet unused gas line stating that he owed $0.00. He ignored it and threw it away as anybody might.

In April he received another bill and threw that one away too.

The following month the gas company sent him a very nasty note stating that they were going to cancel his gas line if he didn’t send them $0.00 by return mail. He called them, talked to them, and they said it was a computer error and they would take care of it.

The following month he decided that it was about time that he tried out the troublesome gas line figuring that if there was usage on the account it would put an end to this ridiculous predicament.

However, when he went to use the gas, it had been cut off. He called the gas company who apologized for the computer error once again and said that they would take care of it. The next day he got a bill for $0.00 stating that payment was now overdue.

Assuming that having spoken to them the previous day the latest bill was yet another mistake, he ignored it, trusting that the company would be as good as their word and sort the problem out.

The next month he got a bill for $0.00. This bill also stated that he had 10 days to pay his account or the company would have to take steps to recover the debt.

Finally, giving in, he thought he would beat the gas company at their own game and mailed them a cheque for $0.00. The computer duly processed his account and returned a statement to the effect that he now owed the gas company nothing at all.

A week later, the manager of the Mudgee branch of the Westpac Banking Corporation called our hapless friend and asked him what he was doing writing a cheque for $0.00.

After a lengthy explanation, the bank manager replied that the $0.00 cheque had caused their cheque processing software to fail. The bank could therefore not process ANY cheques they had received from ANY of their customers that day because the cheque for $0.00 had caused the computer to crash.

The following month the man received a letter from the gas company claiming that his cheque had bounced and that he now owed them $0.00 and unless he sent a cheque by return mail they would take immediate steps to recover the debt.

At this point, the man decided to file a debt harassment claim against the gas company. It took him nearly two hours to convince the clerks at the local courthouse that he was not joking.

They subsequently helped him in the drafting of statements that were considered substantive evidence of the aggravation and difficulties he had been forced to endure during this debacle.

The matter was heard in the Magistrate’s Court in Mudgee and the outcome was this:

The gas company was required to:-

[1] Immediately rectify their computerized accounts system or Show cause, within 10 days, why the matter should not be referred to a higher court for consideration under Company Law.

[2] Pay the bank dishonor fees incurred by the man.

[3] Pay the bank dishonor fees incurred by all the Westpac clients whose cheques had been bounced on the day our friends had been processed.

[4] Pay the claimant’s court costs; and

[5] Pay the claimant a total of $1500 per month for the 5-month period March to July inclusive as compensation for the aggravation they had caused their client to suffer.

And all this over $0.00.

As Will and Guy always say, ‘You just could not make it up.’
