An Australian friend said yesterday’s post was “a little wide of mark for the Aussie sense of humor” while a reader advised me “don’t quit your day job.” Hey, don’t blame me, guys. I didn’t invent the dingo.
Anyway, for those who think it is easy to come up with Aussie slang, here is your chance. I’m giving away a bottle of Wolf Blass “Gold Label” Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia and a pair of Bordeaux-style Riedel glasses from, um, Austria (close enough). That’s a pretty nice wine and some pretty nice glasses into which to pour it. It also comes in a gift pack in case you want to give it away. (All these items came from ASC Fine Wines and are available at its new Wine Gallery.)
To win them, come up with some Aussie slang and stick it in the comments section—even better if you give it a Beijing angle. You can enter up to five times. All legitimate entries will go into a random draw for the wine and glasses. The entry deadline is next Wednesday at noon.
Get to it, you My entries are in the comments section (no, I can’t win, but I can still play)….
