A colleague giving a talk to international students on the meaning of Waltzing Matilda was wondering how to illustrate his presentation. How lucky therefore to spy this jumbuck on a bring out your rubbish pile. He jumped out quickly at the lights and grabbed his prize. Unfortunately he hadn’t checked the rear of the animal.
Perhaps this illustrates the words of Waltzing Matilda even better. I always thought there was the implication that “waltzing” the sheep meant he was going to give it a seeing to before eating it. Right?
