A Farmer, leaning on the fence, was watching the neighbours son flogging the ground with a large leaf covered branch.
"Snake?" asked the farmer.
"Na!" said the neighbour's son. "I thought I would do some paddock bashing but I can't afford an old ute yet."
NOTE: this must be strange to people who do not know what we Aussies call paddock bashing. Rural kids often get an old car or a Ute (Utility vehicle) and strip a lot of the vehicle parts off it, like doors, mudguards, rear vision mirrors etc etc. They then amuse t hemselves by driving it around the paddocks of their parents farm. The wetter and boggier the land the better. This is what is called "Paddock Bashing".
