An English sense of humour ... and an Ozzie

It is now officially 6 weeks since our police checks went to Oz.
By all accounts we should have our visas by now.

Getting all impatient Graham emailed our agent and managed to hassle her into agreeing to email oz immigration for us.  She said she would but warned us that there was a good chance that we would not even get a reply.  She said that there had been very few grants coming through for the last month and she had not seen any since 1st July.
Graham emailed her back and being in a slightly daft mood he asked her 'does that mean that Oz is full?!' 

We were both more than a little surprised when the email back with what we can only assume was a serious answer!  She started it with an 'Oh no it doesnt mean that' and then gave us a whole list of reasons that things are slow!
We both sort of looked at each other.  'Do you think she got the joke?' i asked.  'I think maybe not' replied Graham.
Graham did email her back and tell her he had been joking - but she didnt reply - i hope we didnt upset her!

So we are taking this as the first major discrepancy between our English sense of humour and that of an Ozzie!  No doubt there will be many more.  I wonder who will get the biggest laugh?!
