Stupid Poems 12
by Ian Vannoey

Why is New South Wales called New South Wales?

When the British came to Oz,
They called it New South Wales ‘cos
They gazed upon those sun-kissed lands,
The swaying palms, the golden sands,
And said “This place we’ve landed on, see,
We’ve named because it's just like Swansea.”

Are you ever annoyed by TV newsreaders when they sit on sofas, or are unwilling to pronounce difficult foreign names? If so, this is the book for you.

In Ian’s traditional style, Stupid Poems 12 features a unique combination of highbrow interests and a childish sense of humour. There are the usual sideways takes on familiar themes, which in this case include ‘Waltzing Matilda’, garden pests and the classical myth of Dido and Aeneas.

In the words of one reviewer, Stupid Poems 11 was ‘juvenile’ and ‘vulgar’; if this is your kind of humour, you’ll enjoy Stupid Poems 12.

This volume will be of particular interest if you are Australian, Welsh, or a goat.
