  1. Holy cow, Batman.... I don't think I've laughed that hard in a very, very long time.

  2. pwned. especially gerdermnan

  3. Stuey doesn't drink Fosters - no Aussie does - it's an export brand only. Being a Croweater (South Australian), Stuey either drinks West End Draught, Southwark Bitter or Coopers Pale. Actually I've seen Stuey drink and he pretty much only drink red wine - of which there are plenty in SA.

    V funny...

  4. fosters is cats piss and im certain Stuey would be requesting his south aussie coopers pale ale.... as when we saw him at TDF in 2002 my mate was wearing a coopers hat and Stueys quote of the tour was "gday boys, you dont have any coopers pale for me do ya???!!!" GOLD.

  5. Ow... Ow... Ow-ow-ow...!

    The funny! It hurts!!! Ow!
