You people have watched a bit too much Steve Irwin.
Nah, I'm old enough to remember Rolf Harris the first time round, and Paul Hogan's TV series... :D
 
Oh dear lord.

You're not about to get out the wobble board and start singing 'Tie me kangaroo down' are you?

As for Hogan. I still remember the episode with the Pal dog food. Ugh.. feeling old now.:(

Do you know, I have never ever heard an Australian actually say "strewth" outside of the TV?:p
