Man Drought

Australia has been facing a drought in recent years, but according to a new book published down under, it's not just water in short supply. Australia's cities are also suffering from a "man drought." The problem is that there's a "man dam" in rural communities -- which means that all the men are staying on the farm while the women move to the city to find work, thus causing a "sheila shortage" in the outback. This prompted the mayor of the remote town of Mt. Isa to invite all the female "ugly ducklings" to move there to find a man.

Nothing particularly weird about all this. I just like the phrases.

Does the mayor promise that the men behind the man dam are not also ugly ducklings? If not, I'm not bothering to check into visa requirements.

No worries, Paul. I'm sure one day that waltzing Mathilda will come to you and make you feel special again.

This has been around for awhile and, IIRC, the infamous mayor is/was suffering from a severe sheila attack for his reference to "ugly ducklings".
