That is correct, no less than an imperial pint will do.

One will undoubtedly be in the clutch of Smack's hand as he is hiked up windward on Fiasco, flying a hull in front of an adoring crowd as he yells, "HTFU yourself!"

I am sending a big jar of Vegemite to Smackers so he can enjoy the fun of seeing the looks on his boys faces when they try to eat it.

For a little cultural background on HTFU you can Google "Chopper HTFU".
Take that little umbrella out of your drink first.
. I hadn't heard of him - hilarious. Almost as good as Jim Jefferies.

As to Vegemite AND Marmite, neither are fit for human consumption. My dad used to grow things like them in Petri dishes at the agro lab.

Why anyone would eat them when peanut butter is available mystifies me.

Peanut butter invented in US, which became the greatest industrial economy the world has ever known.

Vegemite invented in Australia, which became a penal colony.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

To be fair, it was invented after they became our penal colony.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Damn!
I’ve been busy and missed this completely. It’s a sharp reminder to me to stop wasting time and concentrate on the important stuff. A loss like this never goes away but it does get easier with time. Hollow words, I know. Hang in there.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

Wonderful to see you back Smackers. I'm pretty much overwhelmed by all the posted support you've received so I'm guessing you are as well. Cheers to you old friend.

Oh yes and btw .... take it easy on the Vegemite. hee hee. Goes well with Avocado on toast for brekkie.

BP ... sorry I missed your earlier post. With the Womboat still out of water and her innards scattered from one end to t'other I've been awol from here a bit. For a grumpy old bastard you really are a softy aren't you ?

Thanks again to all you SailNutters for your support of one our favourite nutters.

Beer o'clock down here ... here's to you Smackers.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

I've been off for a while and was just shocked to hear of Smack's loss. He has been such a help to me and so many others, providing info, support and humour as well as a few needed smacks and it's just so unfair he has had such a terrible loss.

sending lots of positive karma-vibes to him and his family.

Re: Smackdaddy needs your thoughts/prayers

There is a problem of the Donate button. Even I already signed onto my account, it still asks me for the password. Regardless when I enter the correct or incorrect password, it says the shipment will be sent. There is no way to know if the transaction is completed.

Please fix or provide us the Steve paypal account address. Thank you.
