OK, beneath you. Servants are expensive in Australia; surly too.

Further research from other Consultants resident in the Melbourne area backed up our findings & consequently we had to bring our own supply on our most recent visit!
I never ate Galaxy or Dove. I was just surprised that they'd stopped selling the bars in Aus.

If beyond then no hope for your cooking. Beneath then arse the servants.
Look I dont know what upset you so much about a simple question maybe you were fed it by a wicked aunt as a small child and it brings back a bad memory. But I think your just being rude!!! So cut it out!!!! your a bully and a arsehole.

I do have one, it is true. Did you work that out all by yourself?

If so then surely you can see I'm doing these stupid people a very great favour in merely bestowing my time upon them. However, I'm prepared to go beyond that, beyond mere civic duty and, despite their lobbing their vacuous minds and near worthless bodies on my country, I'm prepared to do my bit to try to bring them up to a fitting minimum standard which might one day be worthy of being called Australian. Here it is: Do.

I think your just here to spoil things for everyone and any Australian would be ashamed to be call an Australian if they have to be as rude as you. You are 'bestowing' your time here as your a sad and lonely person and I feel very sorry for you.

Why you think someone is stupid because they have asked a simple question I really dont understand

But keep up the pointless work your doing as your doing Australia proud.

Cut it out. Your comments are becoming increasingly annoying and insulting. If you have nothing constructive to add to the thread I suggest you stop posting on it.
