Australian Passport Application

This is an actual letter sent to the DFAT (Department of Foreign and Trade) Immigration Minister. The government tried desperately to censure the author, but got nowhere because every legal person who read it nearly wet themselves laughing!

Dear Mr. Minister,

I’m in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe this.

How is it that K-Mart has my address and telephone number, and knows that I bought a television set and golf clubs from them back in 1997,
and yet the Federal Government is still asking me where I was born and on what date?

For Christ sakes, do you guys do this by hand?

My birth date you have in my Medicare information, and it is on all the income tax forms I’ve filed for the past 40 years.  It is also on my driver’s licence, on the last eight passports I’ve ever had, on all those stupid customs declaration forms I’ve had to fill out before being allowed off planes over the past 30  years.

It’s also on all those insufferable census forms that I’ve filled out every 5 years since 1966.

Also…  would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my mother’s name is Audrey, my father’s name is Jack, and I’d be absolutely f……… astounded if that ever changed between now and when I drop dead!!!…

S_ _ _!  What do you people do with all this information we keep having to provide??

I apologise, Mr. Minister.  But I’m really pissed off this morning.

Between you and me, I’ve had enough of all this bulls_ _ _ !

You send the application to my house, then you ask me for my f……… address!!

What the hell is going on with your mob?  Have you got a gang of mindless Neanderthal a_ _ _ holes working there!

And another thing, look at my damn picture…  Do I look like Bin Laden? I can’t even grow a beard for God’s  sakes. I just want to go to  New Zealand  and see my new granddaughter.  (Yes, my son interbred with a Kiwi girl). And would someone please tell  me, why would you give a s_ _ _ whether or not I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days? In the unlikely event I ever got the urge to do something weird to a sheep or a horse, believe you me, I’d  sure as hell not want to tell anyone!

Well, I have to go now, ’cause I have to go to the other end of the city, and get another f………. copy of my birth certificate – and to part with another $80 for the privilege of accessing MY OWN INFORMATION!

Would  it be so complicated to have all the services in the same spot, to assist in the issuance of a new passport on the same day??

Nooooo..  that ‘d  be too f…….. easy and makes far too much sense.

You would much prefer to have us running all over the place like chickens with our f……… heads cut off, and then having to find some ‘high-society’ wanker to confirm that it’s  really me in the goddamn photo! You know the photo…. the one where we’re not allowed to smile?! …. you f………. morons.

Signed – An Irate Australian Citizen.

P.S. Remember what I said above about the picture, and getting someone in ‘high-society’ to confirm that it’s me? Well, my family has been in
this country since before 1850!  In 1856, one of my forefathers took up arms with Peter Lalor. (You do remember the Eureka  Stockade!!)

I have also served in both the CMF and regular Army for something over 30  years (I went to Vietnam in 1967), and still have high security
clearances. I’m also a personal friend of the president of the RSL… and Lt General Peter Cosgrove sends me a Christmas card each year.

However, your rules require that I have to get someone “important” to  verify who I am; You know… someone like my doctor – WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN F……PAKISTAN !!!…..  a country where they either assassinate or hang their ex-Prime Ministers – and are suspended from the Commonwealth for not having the “right sort of government”.

You are all f………g idiots!

Copper Wire Discoveries

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the Brits, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet, and shortly after, a story was published in the New York Times: “American archaeologists, finding traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the British”.

One week later, the Bulletin, in Queensland, reported the following: “After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Townsville, Lucky Simelane, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely f–k all. Lucky has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Australia had already gone wireless.”

Just makes you bloody proud to be an Aussie!

Australia in 100 years…

Julia Gillard, the Prime Minister of Australia and David Cameron, her British counterpart, are shown a time machine which can see 100 years into
the future.

They both decide to test it by asking a question each.

Julia goes first. “What will Australia be like in 100 years time”

The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action and gives her a printout, she reads it out

“The country is in good hands under the new Prime Minister, crime is non-existent, there is no conflict, the economy is healthy. There are no worries”

David thinks “Its not bad this time machine, I’ll have a bit of that” so he asks “What will Great Britain be like in 100 years time?”

The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action, and he gets a printout.

But he’s just staring at it.

“Come on David” says Julia, “What does it say”

David replies, “I’m buggered if I know, it’s all in Mandarin”

New Australian Stamp

Australia Post have created and marketed a new stamp displaying a picture of the current Prime Minister of Australia, Ms Julia Gillard.

The prime minister had requested a recall of the stamps following concerns that they weren’t sticking.

Australia Post recently suspended a recall of the stamps after the findings of a special Senate Committee were released.

The Prime Minister was told that the stamp was not sticking to envelopes and the enraged Prime Minister demanded a full investigation.

After a month of testing and spending of $1.85 million, a special Senate Committee led by the leader of the Greens, Bob Brown, presented the following findings -

  1. The stamp is in perfect order.
  2. There is nothing wrong with the adhesive.
  3. People are spitting on the wrong side of the stamp.

Peter Cosgrove Tells It Like It Is

I teach clients presentation skills in a variety of programs and events. I often explain that it’s best to tell it like it is… But this example takes the cake.

Major General Peter Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.

Read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children.

Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you have to love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

In a portion of an ABC radio interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military Headquarters.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
We’re going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Shooting! That’s a bit irresponsible, isn’t it?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don’t see why, they’ll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Don’t you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don’t see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
But you’re equipping them to become violent killers.

GENERAL COSGROVE:
Well, Ma’am, you’re equipped to be a prostitute, but you’re not one, are you?

The radiocast went silent for 46 seconds……..

How To Get Great Service In Australia

The other day I needed to go to the public hospital but not wanting to sit there for 4 hours, I put on my blue jacket and pinned on a plastic ID card that I had made off the Internet onto the front of my jacket.

When I went into the hospital, I noticed that 3/4 of the people got up and left.

I guess they decided that they weren’t that sick after all.  I cut at least 3 hours off my waiting time.

Feel free to use it the next time you’re in need of quicker emergency service.

It also works at Centrelink. It saved me 2 hours.

At the Laundry, three minutes after entering, I had my choice of any machine, most still running.

Don’t try it at McDonald’s or Hungry Jack’s though…..

The whole staff disappeared and l never got my order !!!!!…
