The Australian National University in Canberra ran a competition asking readers to send in an Australian place name with a suitable definition. The entrant was allowed to add, remove or change one letter of the place name if desired. Here are some of the witty results:
Barragate - a really fishy scandal
Bringarooma - BYO accommodation
Bullabulling - a bull doing what bulls do
Caniambo - a very intelligent ambulance driver
Chillingham - a frigid pig
Cignet - a device to catch baby swans smoking
Crookwell - How are you really?
Gundaroo - a less serious crime than Gundagai
Maitland - Oz
Mangalore - a surfeit of males
Mundiwindi - Sunday’s weather forecast
Noondoo - a long lunch
Nagga Nagga - a bigamist’s worst nightmare
Tullamarine - Try fooling someone else!
Warrawee - asked by many a lost tourist
