You can’t have any fun these days….

Stay well away from Australia if you’re an under-age hypnotist, a kite-flyer, a shipwreck-looter, or someone who habitually uses a goat to pull a cart. And you’d better not slaughter or skin an animal on the road, or play a game “to the annoyance of another person.” (Does that include the Aussies’ recent Test performance in England?) All of these crimes are still on the statute books in the state of Victoria.

Damn and blast it,  that rules out most of Gert’s harmless amusements!
