Images of Canberra – Kangaroos in the park

By johnboy - 23 November 2008 30

Saw these two this morning trimming the grass in an Ainslie park on Officer Crescent.

Pests I know, but still magical in the right context.

Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it to

I presume you have not seen the Tropic Thunder movie then, Jim Jones?

; )

na…dugong is VERY fatty….but does have a nice flavour…..sea turtle is not bad either…but you cant go past a freshwater croc as far as tasty wildlife goes…..salties are ok too….

I always thought Panda would taste great. They eat nothing but bamboo shoots, which would be much better than ‘grain fed’, and a big layer of fat would mean that the meat would be really tender and moist; would probably make great crackling too.

Damn, now I’m really hungry.

You should all be ashamed of yourselves! Why don’t you eat ugly but interesting animals such as cows, pigs, chickens and sheep?

Huh? Huh?

What’s your problem, people? What problem exactly do you people have? And why do you people have such a problem? People!!

Kangaroo is really easy to do badly.
But apparently dugong is quite tasty when cooked well.

Granny 11:46 am 24 Nov 08

Humph! Coming from a man who eats koalas!!

have no fear granny…..we are NOT going to run out of kangaroos in the A.C.T anytime soon

Granny 11:34 am 24 Nov 08

It’s just another nail in the coffin of kangaroos everywhere, seekay.

There was a dead roo on the median strip outside the Hyatt when I drove past at about 10 last night. Presumably they were killed by a Canberran parking his/her car. That’s what footpaths and median strips in the ACT are for, isn’t it?

And now you’ve gone too far!!


willo 9:52 am 24 Nov 08

well….they do taste slightly better than koalas……

Granny 9:45 am 24 Nov 08

Well, of course it’s distasteful to eat the family of a classic Australian cultural icon. Only the worst of the criminally minded would be capable of committing such an abominable atrocity ….

Skippy is pictured here visiting her aunty’s sister-in-law’s second cousin thrice removed in response to the Bruce Murray Canberra song. As you can see, she is clearly loving Canberra and may never, in fact, leave.

Unless she is run over by an out-of-control automobile of course, necessitating months of convalescence in a top Sydney hospital.

I hate kangaroos…..they taste terrible!!!

It’s funny you say they’re pests when they’ve been (I mean the species not those two individuals) here a lot longer than we have.

Granny 12:28 pm 23 Nov 08

My friend Skippy is still so cute!

: )

Despite a terrible automobile accident.
