I try to get 5 - 6 hour per night. Sometimes I don't succeed. On weekends, I make up for it (sometimes). It is not yet 11PM here.

I said. It rhymes well, but, thus far, that is all I know.

Dear John, run the words "country" and "member" together, but with heavy emphasis on the first syllable of the first word. Without giving too much away, bear in mind what it might be that the voice from the crowd is remembering.

'Tis in the best tradition of Australian humour. Very subtle and horribly rude :-)

O' my dear Lord! I think I get it. I am just an innocent young man, sir. My pure mind refused to go there.

Either that, or I don't get it, and I am utterly perverted.
