Midnight Oil had sold 12 million albums upon separating in Finally someone was playing stuff that was musically idiosyncratic, fresh and strong. The group have influenced international acts such as Green Day ,  R. They're a really underrated band. He recited the chorus lyrics of their song "Forgotten Years", and hailed the outfit as an "extraordinary" band whose music "brought people's differences together; not to resolve them, just to get them in the same room, up each other's noses".
That song touches my heart. Music journalist Kurt Loder once noted that Midnight Oil were "reputed to be Australia's most formidable live act";  Tomas Mureika in AllMusic argued they were "the tightest band on the planet for a time".

Sheila was hinting about what she wanted for her upcoming anniversary. She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to in about 3 seconds.
After retiring, Bruce went to the Social Security office to apply for his pension. The woman behind the counter asked him for his driver's license to verify his age. He looked in his pockets and realized he had left his wallet in the pub. He told the woman. The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'. So he opened his shirt revealing the curly silver hair on his chest. She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me' and she processed my pension application.
When Bruce got home, he excitedly told my wife about his experience at the Social Security office. Sheila said, 'You should have dropped your pants instead. You might have gotten a disability pension too. Bruce and Sheila were sitting at a table at Bruce's school reunion. He kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table. Sheila asked, 'Do you know her? I understand she took to drinking right after we split up thirty years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since.
Bruce took his missus to a restaurant. The waiter took his order first. Sheila was standing in the bedroom in the nuddy, looking in the big mirror. She was not happy with what she saw and said to her husband, "I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly.
I really need you to pay me a compliment. A Northern Territory farm hand gets on the radio to the farmer. I hit a pig with the ute. The pig's OK, but he's stuck in the bull bars at the front of my ute and is wriggling and squealing so much I can't get him out. The manager says,'Ok, there's a Take it; shoot the pig in the head and you'll be able to remove him. Took the , shot the pig in the head and removed him from the bull-bars. No problem there, but I still can't go on'.
The flashing blue light is stuck under the right-front wheel arch. An elderly bloke was invited to an old mate's home for dinner one evening. He was amazed by the way his mate preceded every request to his missus with endearing terms such as: The couple had been married almost 50 years and, clearly, they were still very much in love.
When the missus went back to the kitchen to get more beers for the blokes, the old bloke leaned over to his host, and said: The old bloke hung his head. Fortunately it was right near a pub, and it was 10 AM so it was just opening, so they went inside to wait while the driver fixed it.
The Fosters director ordered three stubbies of Fosters Lager for them and they drank it all while chatting business stuff. They continued to talk business and some time later the stubbies were empty again so it was the Coopers director's turn for a shout.
He got up and went to the bar, and said to the sheila behind the bar; three of the same please. To which he replied; well, I thought it was still a bit too early to start drinking beer yet After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

Walking proudly, he sauntered into the kitchen and said to Sheila, 'Notice anything different about me? Frustrated, Bruce stormed off into the bathroom, undressed and walked back into the kitchen completely naked except for his new R.
She looked up and exclaimed, 'Bruce, what's different? It's hanging down today, it was hanging down yesterday, it'll be hanging down again tomorrow, 'cause its always that way. Without changing her expression, Sheila replied, 'shoulda bought a hat, Bruce. Shoulda bought a hat. An Aussie bloke is walking along Bondi beach when he comes across a lamp partially buried in the sand. He picks up the lamp and gives it a rub. Two blonde genies appear and they tell him he has been granted three wishes.
The guy makes his three wishes and the blonde genies disappear. The next thing the guy knows, he's in a bedroom, in a mansion surrounded by 50 beautiful sheilas. He roots them all and then begins to explore the house.
Suddenly there is a knock at the door. He answers the door and standing there are two persons dressed in Ku Klux Klan outfits. They drag him outside to the nearest tree, throw a rope over a branch and hang him by the neck until he is dead. The Klansmen walk off. As they are walking away, they remove their hoods and it's the two blonde genies. One blonde genie says to the other blonde genie, 'Hey, I can understand the first wish having all those beautiful women in a big mansion to make love to.
I can also understand him wanting to be a millionaire, but wanting to be hung like a black man is beyond me. Bruce to his mate: I love to watch my wedding video in reverse.
I especially love the part where she takes her ring off and walks down the isle backwards, gets in the car and fucks off. Tassie couple walking out of the divorce court, the wife is crying her heart out. Bloke says ' Oh for fuck's sake stop crying, you're still my sister'. Sheila asked Bruce what reincarnation is. Bruce explained, when you die you come back as something else.
Sheila said she wanted to come back as a pig. Bruce said, 'No, you're not f ing listening'. Bruce got depressed one night and rang lifeline. He got through to a call centre in Afghanistan, and told them he felt suicidal. They got all excited and asked if he had a truck licence. Bruce and his mate Robbo are having a few beers and are discussing a long running dilemma. Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts? Robbo says; Women believe that giving birth is more painful than a bloke getting kicked in the nuts.
Bruce, after another beer and some heavy deductive thinking, came up with the answer to that question. Bruce reckoned that getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby. Look mate,he said, it's like this, OK? A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child. A farmer named Bruce had a car accident, he was hit by a truck owned by the Fosters brewery. I'd just loaded my cow into the Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!
Now several weeks after the accident, he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question. Bruce thanked the Judge and proceeded. I was thrown into one ditch and the cow was thrown into the ditch on the other side of the road. By Jesus I was hurt, very bad, and didn't want to move. However, I could hear my cow moanin' and groanin'. I knew she was in terrible pain just by her groans. Shortly after the accident, a cop on a motorbike turned up.
He could hear my cow moanin' and groanin' too, so he went over to her. After he looked at her, and saw her condition, he took out his gun and shot her right between the eyes. Then the cop came across de road, gun still in hand and smoking, looked at me, and said, 'How are you feeling?
Two flies are sitting on a pile of cow shit. One fly says to the other; hey, do you wanna hear a funny joke? Second fly says; yeah sure, but I'm eating now so no dirty jokes please Bruce and Sheila had been going out with each other for a long time. Urged on by their mates, they decided it was finally time to get married. Before the wedding, they went out to dinner and had a long conversation regarding how their marriage might work.
They discussed finances, living arrangements and so on. Finally, Bruce decided it was time to broach the subject of their physical relationship. Bruce sat quietly for a moment, had another sip of his beer, leaned over towards her and whispered - 'Is that one word or two?

Bruce woke up with a killer hangover after attending his best mate's bucks night. He didn't even remember how he got home.
He looked at the clock and it was As he struggled into consciousness through the fog of a pounding headache, his stomach plummeted as he wondered what the hell he did last night.. He forced himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he saw was a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table.
And, next to them, a little vase of sweet peas, freshly picked from the garden. The bedroom was clean and tidy, - there was no trail of drunkenly abandoned clothes, fresh air was coming in through the window and all was serene. He stumbled to the bathroom, also pristine, and, squinting gingerly into the mirror, saw that he had a black eye.
This was not a good sign, but no memories were returning. As he concentrated hard on getting the world into focus, he saw a post-it note stuck on the corner of the mirror. It was written in red, with little hearts on it and a kiss from his missus.
Breakfast is in the oven. Try to eat something and go back to bed for the morning. There's cricket on TV this afternoon. Take it easy today, hope your eye doesn't hurt too much. I love you, darling! He stumbled to the kitchen and sure enough, there was hot breakfast, steaming hot coffee and the newspaper. His teenaged son was sitting at the table, eating. Bruce, bracing himself, asked his son what happened the previous night.
Well, you came home after 3 A. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, and then you vomited in the hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the door. Confused, Bruce asked his son, 'So, why is everything in such perfect order, aspirins by the bed, a nice note from Mum and breakfast waiting for me? Mum dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your trousers off, you screamed,.
You've been reading our marriage certificate for an hour. What are my choices? I see your picture and ask myself what other problem can there be greater than this one? Bruce asked his missus, 'Would you have married me if my father hadn't left me a fortune? One kiss and I'll be yours forever. Bruce sat in the loungeroom watching the footy on TV when Sheila hit him round the head with a frying pan.
K was that for? Sheila replied 'That was for the piece of paper with the name Jenny on it that I found in your pants pocket'. Bruce then said 'When I was at the races last week Jenny was the name of the horse I bet on' Sheila apologized and went on with the housework. Three days later Bruce is watching TV when Sheila bashes him around the head with an even bigger frying pan, knocking him unconscious.
Upon re-gaining consciousness he asked why she had hit again. Bruce got a job with the local newspaper and had to write the advice column, this was his first week;. I hope you can help me here. The other day I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't gone more than a mile down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband's help.
When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in the bedroom, dressed in my lingerie with our neighbour Robbo making mad passionate love to him. I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married for twelve years. When I confronted him, he tried to make out that he went into the back yard and they decided to have a beer together and things got a little out of hand.
When I asked him why he had my lingerie on, he broke down and admitted that he'd been having an affair for six months. I told him to stop or I would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless.
I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults.
