Every country, culture, and language will have its own type of humour. If you are learning a new language, it can be a great way of getting truly immersed in the language and understand all of the finer details. Here are some great Aussie jokes!


Religious Australian Cowboy

A devout Australian cowboy lost his favorite Bible while he was mending fences out on the range. Three weeks later, a kangaroo walked up to him carrying the Bible in its mouth. The cowboy couldn’t believe his eyes. He took the precious book out of the kangaroos mouth, raised his eyes heavenward and exclaimed, “It’s a miracle!” “Not really,” said the kangaroo. “Your name is written inside the cover.”


Meanwhile Ricky…

Ricky decides to go back home to Melbourne so he calls Qantas Airlines to book his flight.

The operator asks him, ‘How many people are flying with you?’

Ricky replies, ‘Strewth mate, how would I know.  It’s your plane.’


The Amazing Australian Love Test

Do you ever wonder who loves you? Your wife? Your dog? You think they love you, but how do you know if they really do? How can you be sure? There is a way to find out and have peace of mind and it only takes one hour.

Simply open the boot of your car, put your dog and your wife in there, close the boot, grab a couple of beers and watch the footy on the television for an hour or so. Then go back to the car, and open the boot. Now, who is happy to see you?
