our glorious ranga primeminister has just finished visiting prsident obama and a radio program this after noon was talking about how she showed him to play aussie rules, gave him an ipod of great aussie songs and had a chat about the mysteries of vegimite, (it was a comedy show btw) they went on to say what they think she missed out, like how to check if the snags are cooked through on the bbq I(the temp of the oil as it drips on your foot), how to mow in thongs while holding a beer and watching the cricket through the loungeroom window, and the words to the angles song "am i ever gonna see your face again?" and what being a wanker really means in australia.....what if you were giving a beginners lesson in your town, state or country would you include??

Vegemite seems to be something you have to grow up with. I love offering it to my overseas friends and not one has like it! The new "cheesymite" version might have more success as it is mixed with cream cheese and isn't as strong...I used this one about half a cm thick, YUM.

lol, yeah it's a bit of fun, I watched it the day we first moved to Tasmania, scared the shit out of me and on some levels it's not exactly wrong! There are some lovely people here however, just a bit of a culture shock when moving from QLD!

Jenn if you find some make sure you try it, but don't use too much, put it on toast with lots of butter and a little scraping of vegemite. Yum

This is a funny description of when I live in Australia. It's possibly hard to understand if your not Australian.

LMAO Tracey!! Vegemite is yummy Jenn, it's hard to explain. It's salty. They have just released a kids version of vegemite which is a little more bland, I am interested to taste it. I found this description on the net which sounds awful, but it is yummy!



For first timers, the flavour of Vegemite is often unexpected. Most common spreads used in sandwiches, but in particular, on toast, is either sweet like jam or honey, or else it's peanut butter! Vegemite however, has a rather salty bite to it. It is often used as a stock in all kinds of cooking, so it's very savoury and can be likened to a concentrated flavour of a dark meat like beef.

Yeah, my Mum likes to eat Marmite on toast. I always thought it smelled like manure. BLECH! So what does Vegimite taste like? I'd be willing to try it.

No vegemite is nothing liek Marmite. I hate Marmite. But i like vegemite. Vegemite should be used spareingly it's not something that goes on thick.

Well, first of all if Vegimite tastes anything like Marmite, it's GROSS! :P Anyway, I found this clip the other day and thought it was pretty freakin' funny. Maybe you could learn something about Canada. Or not LMAO!
