Nudie Rudies , Talking Cats , Drunken Parrots and Dogs Driving Buses .. Its all here Today Folks


Hi guys today I am bringing you the top ten  craziest story’s I have heard and seen around the Territory.

1. First I have a video that was taken last year and supplied to the NT news. It shows a couple of Darwin lovers gettin it on the balcony of their apartment , providing entertainment for tourists and city workers below. Check it out …….

2. Staying on the topic of public nudity the Deputy Mayor of Palmerston was accused by two teenage girls of causing offense with his apparent ‘public nudity’. The guys name is Geoff Carter , 65yrs old , he is also the founding member of The Australian Army Band , Darwin. And is now publicly branded a pervert. The poor guy was in his own bedroom , probably getting dressed at the time .. but the fact it was made national news means he will forever be remembered as ‘The Naked Deputy Mayor”

3. Former NT man Dr David Bowman made the ridiculous suggestion that we should introduce “Mega Fauna” AKA Elephants and other gigantic beasts into the Northern Territory and other outback areas to reduce the risk of fires caused by Gamba Grass , a type of grass that is so high Buffalo’s and cows cant reach it . This is stupid for a few reasons the main one being that it’s not really in the interest of public safety to have wild ‘Mega Beasts” roaming the streets….. Also , the cane toads were introduced here for similar reasons , now we cant get rid of them and they are more of a problem than a solution …. (source http://www.abc.net.au ).

4. A guy gets shot by his mate whilst being eaten by a saltwater croc .. yes that’s a true story although not as bad as it sounds. The 2 crocodile farm worker’s were collecting croc eggs from a remote NT station when one was attacked by a saltwater croc. The other guy grabbed a shotgun  aimed and fired at the crocodile  accidentally shooting his mate in the arm in the process. All ended well though , the croc let go and disappeared and after a few days it was work at usual for both men.

5. Drunken parrots are seen falling from the skies in the Darwin area every dry season. The birds are thought to be getting drunk after eating a mystery plant that then renders them unable to fly. For more on the drunken parrots check out this link

6. Woodley the dog had the ride of his life when he decided to take his masters double-decker bus for a ride in Darwin last year. A shop assistant passing by could not believe his eyes and quickly chased the bus down . He managed to pull the hand brake on before the bus hit a parked car. Woodley’s owner explained that the dog watches him put the handbrake on and off and was just copying him. Apparently this has happened before …. And I thought Chaos was alone ..

7. This little boy is in my opinion , a magician. I have no idea how he got into this vending machine but it took the Fire Brigade to get him out!

8. This 5 legged cane toad was found by Dylan Wells, 11, of Berrimah and the 5th leg is attached to his chin .. makes me worry about drinking the water up here !

9. Last year one smart NT tradie handed himself into police after breaking into the Hidden Valley Tavern (coincidentally also where I work part-time ).  The reason the man handed himself in was because he recognized his bum crack on the cctv footage reported on the news. He was so drunk he cant remember the robbery. You can check out the footage here ..

10. This is the story that more crazy than anything else I have read in any newspaper. Ever.  Last year it was reported that there were concerns the Territory’s talking cat , Mischief, had been abducted by aliens. Yes Im deadly serious folks. Siberian air-traffic controllers claimed a female-sounding alien spoke to them in a cat-like language.  It turned out to be ok , Mischeif was safe and sound at home with his owners.

So there you have it folks – but this is not the end of my crazy tidbits from the Territory , I’m sure I will find ten more very soon …

We attract all kinds up here .. even the extraterrestrial !


We attract all kinds up here .. even the extraterrestrial !

For years the Territory has been famous for its crocs , its weather and its numerous UFO sightings. Since I moved up here 12 months ago if there is not a croc or a cyclone warning on the front page of the paper , then its a new UFO story 😉 Even my partner Dave reckons he has seen plenty of strange lights in the sky whilst he has been out in the middle of the bush. I’m yet to see one but I’m sure if I stick around long enough it may happen …
A Territory man Alan Fergerson has dedicated a lot of his years  traveling the world chasing the best known UFO hotspots and he says the Northern Territory is one of the little green fella s favorite places. Check out his website http://www.ufoterritory.com.au/index.html for more cool photos and UFO story’s – in the mean time here is one I thought was pretty interesting , it was published in the NT news in June 2008 :

A SMALL Territory community is still reeling with shock after four UFOs descended on their Outback homes.

Families spent hours in fear as what appeared to be three spaceships hovered in the distance with another just metres above their houses.

The drama at Marlinja, population 112 and 730km south of Darwin, began at 8pm on Sunday.

Resident Janie Dixon said it started as an “ordinary” night.

“The kids were on the basketball courts, shooting a few hoops, and I was indoors talking to my two nieces when we heard a strange, loud noise,” she said.

“We ran outside but at first we couldn’t see anything — it was really dark and we could hear the sound.

“The sound was horrible. It sounded like something was going past.

“We thought it was a jet. I saw what I thought at first was the evening star, the first star you usually see at night.

“But then we saw three red lights in the distance, and the sound kept getting louder.

“The ground felt like it was shaking, so we ran inside and shut the doors.

“My nephew and niece were looking out through curtains. The thing came closer, circled around the basketball courts and then came so close above our house.

“The kids at the basketball courts ran — two girls stood there looking towards the sky.

“They tried to see what it was but all they could see was this bright red light in the pitch black.”

Ms Dixon said the UFO hovered above the homes for what seemed like a couple of hours.

She said at one stage the phone rang, but went dead when she tried to answer it.

“Then the light in the house became so bright, it was like we were sitting in a football stadium,” she said.

“After a while, after the things all disappeared… I think it was about 11pm by then.

“We went outside and were just sitting around drinking tea and talking about it all. The kids were put to bed.

“We heard the noise again and it came back, but disappeared again moments later.

“We were all really frightened.

“It was a big shock and I couldn’t sleep.”
