Wombat Ghouls 27-Feb-2007 At 3:07:58 PM crazyjohn
Just to clear things up. This is one of the "wombat ghouls" down in Tassie. The REAL FULL STORY goes like this. Me and a mate got pissed one night and decided to go "wombat bashin". Its a popular pass time on the way to the choss pile that is ben lommond. What you do is get really drunk, and set off full speed up the windy mountain road until you run over a wombat. Then after nailing him up on an improvised crucifix and putting cigarettes out on his paws, you decapitate him and carry the head back to the boy scout hut for a good ole' fashioned skull f**king. Jesus christ, Gerry get your facts straight. Oh and as far as giving back to the climbing community I have done just as many drugs and shagged almost as many women as you, Im sure.
