suss? this must be a special Australian term that I'm not familiar with but could be translated as "bloody useless".

Exactly!

Elections, politicians .... the word suss (for suspect) is right at home in these surrounds.

Aussies shorten their words so as to not catch to many flies in their mouth.

Default a couple of chuckles

A frustrated husband in front of his laptop :
Dear google, please do not behave like my wife..
Please allow me to complete my sentence before you start guessing & suggesting.


A married man's prayer :
Dear God, You gave me childhood, You took it away
You gave me youth, You took it away.
You gave me a wife ... Its been years now, just reminding You.


A couple was having dinner at a fancy restaurant As the food was served, the husband said, "the food looks delicious, let's eat."
Wife : honey ... you say prayer before eating at home
Husband : that's at home sweetheart ... here the chef knows how to cook.

The wife asked me what I was doing on the computer last night.
I told her I was looking for cheap flights.
"I love you!" she said, and then she got all excited,
She quickly undressed and we had the most amazing sex ever....
Which is odd because she's never shown an interest in darts before !!

A blonde was selling her pet Python on eBay.

A bloke just rang up and asked if it was big.

She said: "It's massive."

He said: “How many feet?"

She said: "None - it's a bloody snake!"

Talking Olympics

2500 years ago a slave call girl from Sardinia named Gedophamee (pronounced Get-offa'-me) was attending a great athletic festival in Greece. This festival had no name. In those days the athletes performed naked (believe it or not).

To prevent unwanted arousal while competing, the men imbibed freely on drink containing saltpetre before and throughout the variety of events.

At the opening ceremonial parade, Gedophamee observed the first wave of naked athletic males marching toward her and she exclaimed: "Oh! Limp pricks!"

Over the next two and a half millennia that expression morphed into "Olympics".

Just thought I'd share this new found knowledge with you.
