    Aussie reply "huh?"

    "Poolcleaner" you are boring mate no wonder Aussies say "huh." Do you have anything interesting to say when socializing? I doubt it? Are you having trouble with the booze?
    Hey and did I ever mention how slow the Aussies are?

    Shit timjack's got here just in time to comment on this thread and defend the true nature of the bronzed ocker after what? nearly 2 years.

    Great stuff tj, now why don't you go off for a paddle with the sting-rays.

    Re: Why are Australians so stupid?

    This one couldn't be passed by, now could it?

    Quote Originally Posted by Courier Mail
    MESSIAH Campbell was considered a good enough credit risk to be given a card with a $4200 limit which was surprising considering he's a cat.
    His Melbourne owner Katherine Campbell wanted to test the limits of her bank's identity screening process and applied for the Visa credit card on Messiah's behalf.

    She was amazed when it was approved.

    "I just couldn't believe it," she said yesterday. "People need to be aware of this and banks need to have better security."

    Ms Campbell applied for Messiah's credit card through the Bank of Queensland two weeks ago.

    She already had a credit card with the bank and wanted to see whether a second card for the same account would be approved for Messiah.

    She filled out an additional credit card application form in Messiah's name, including his address and age, and sent it to the bank.

    Ms Campbell said the bank requested identification from Messiah but days later sent him a credit card without receiving any proof of identification.

    Ms Campbell said the envelope containing her cat's credit card, the letter inside and the credit card itself were all addressed to Messiah Campbell.

    To make matters worse, Ms Campbell as the primary credit card holder said she was not notified that a secondary credit card attached to her account had been issued.

    Ms Campbell said she was shocked by how simple it was to bluff the bank's security system.

    "It's a bit scary and it's a big problem," she said. "It was very easy to do and I'm not even a professional crook."

    A Bank of Queensland spokeswoman said the credit card had been issued to the cat in error.

    "We have investigated the issue and it appears the bank has made an error," she said. "We apologise as this should not have happened."

    Although the bank will not be taking legal action against Ms Campbell, the spokeswoman said the person signing the application form should not give misleading or fraudulent information.

    "It is also important to remember that for an application to be approved, the customer must sign to confirm the information they have given is true and is not misleading or fraudulent," she said.

    Messiah's credit card has since been cancelled but his credit status doesn't stop there.

    Ms Campbell again challenged security measures when she applied for her cat to be a secondary account holder on her electricity bill.

    The ploy worked and Messiah's name was added to Ms Campbell's Red Energy electricity bills.

    A Red Energy spokeswoman said no responsibility rested with the secondary card holder and there was no problem with having a pet's name on a customer's electricity bill.

    "We never intended for people to sign up their pets as secondary account holders but we respect our customers' wishes," she said. "However, we doubt that their pets will be able to take full advantage of the service."

    so what reg?

    The card is linked to the first card holder.

    If the cat goes and splurges on a carton of whiskers and puts it on the plastic the primary card holder has to pay anyway.

    *yawn*

    PS - did you happen to see the cricket today?

    So applying for, and issuing a cat a credit card is pretty normal behavior for you?

    I saw about 300 crickets. Deep fried in soy sauce.
    Would you like me to send some over?

    Uncalled for re_fuse and damn well cheap at that!!

    Who do you think represents the 'most stupid' Australians?

    I personally go for the Q'landers myself, because of their stupid annoying whiny drawl but inner city Melbournites and Sydneysiders can be equally as dumb and talk just as slow.

    Where you from r_f?

    The only appropriate response I would have thought.

    Personally I'd be immediately suspicious of anyone who could get worked up about the Pope croaking.

    Don't be coy Reg, you and I know it's the South Australians in a canter (everybody has to be good at something).
    Or would you like to swing on a star?

    I was stunned that CNN had three days of nothing but reports from the Vatican, interviewing dozens of American catholics blathering on about how wonderful a man he was
