Not to mention also that Brisbane is full of Queenslanders.......
and what spiders are those, Michael?

Is it the bete noir of all Queenslanders, the dreaded Banana Spider?



I remain etc.

(For the record Melbourne has almost no venomous spiders, no box jellyfish,
only the odd shark {and they are polite}, and several venomous yet very
genteel snakes. We are also toadless, Fire Antless, and have conquered the
prickly pear. We have enlightened views towards our less fortunate
interstate brothers but do insist on the general usage of the more
traditional and more formal term "Pommy Bastard" rather than the more outre
(and very Sydney) term "Pommy Git".  Now excuse me Michael, I have cucumber
and watercress sandwiches to prepare......
