A Word in Your Pink Shell-like — Harlish Goop
"Here is a short list of other such nouns culled quickly from various sources, a few of which you may not have seen before. Whatever else they are, some sure reflect great imagination. Interestingly, most are quite old, and many are obsolete — except for their use in lists like this."

The Feral Joke Collector
Even if you’ve heard it before, this story will amuse you.
Sleeping Giants — Col Choat
"Jonah is a novel set in Sydney in the early 1900s. Many of the places described — Chinatown and Paddy's markets, Botany Road, Sydney Harbour and its foreshores — are icons of Sydney. The characters — members of the "Push", rags-to-riches businessmen like Jonah, and battlers like Chook and Pinky — are just as recognisable today. This novel has been described as the first great novel about Sydney. It has been the subject of a television series and has been adapted for the stage. Yet it is certainly not well-known by the reading public in Australia."
A lot of Australia’s early literature remains in relative obscurity.
Web Line — Tony Rogers
Electronic urban myths and how to disbelieve them.

From the Back Verandah — Fizzgig
