The next stage of this syndrome is ugly Fat Old Bastard of which I am in an advanced stage.
The weight reduction menu in Oz is:
a. minor weight reduction - trail hand in salt water from small boat in tropical Auatralia - called the Croc diet or Salty diet
b. medium weight reduction - stand in waist deep sea water in temperate water in Australia - known as the Great White diet or White Pointer diet
c. severe and permanent weight loss - walk in tall grass anywhere inland from the coast - otherwise known as the King Brown diet
d. temporary weight loss - put your hand in dark corners of any shed in Australia and experience the Redback diet otherwise known as the Black Widow diet.
Come over and try it!
