Here’s a bloody good news story in amongst the murk of everything else for ya.
“They don’t like thongs on the boat. They consider it bad luck, so I decided to leave them next to a rock on the boat ramp.”
Unfortunately, by the time the lads returned, the thongs were nowhere to be seen.
“I came back about eight hours later – and I wasn’t as sober as when I’d left – and the thongs are gone.”
And believe me, these weren’t your regular, run-of-the-mill servo pair of thongs either. These were the real deal. The genuine bloody article.
“These ones have bottle openers on the bottom of them. They’re good.”“I’d had them for at least two years. They were actually my backup thongs as I lost my new thongs a few weeks earlier. I’d left them on a mate’s boat on Beer Can Regatta Day.”
Again, I WEEP. This is too good.
“I thought it would be a bit of a laugh. I didn’t think anyone would put any money towards it, but $69 has been raised.”
Whilst the comments from donators have been urging him to splurge out and get himself a flash new set of wheels, Clancy has apparently had other ideas.
“There’s a story I read the other day about a young family who lost their mother to a spider bite. I think they’re more needing of the money than me, so I’ll give it to them.”“As soon as I figure out how the site works, I’ll pass the money on.”
Clance, you’re an absolute bloody champion, mate. The country could definitely do with more cobbers like you.
