The only rules are that it must be Territorian and 100 per cent false. Alluding to characters who may or may not be real is up to you. You can remain anonymous or be named as the author.
This beauty came from someone who would prefer to remain anonymous from the Katherine region. It is not known if Geoff and Jaz are real people or not:
Yarn of the week, April 27, 2022
Geoff and his best mate Jaz lived on neighbouring properties that bordered on the Katherine River. In the runoff they would go down to the river and catch cherabin for bait. One evening they grabbed their bucket and headed down with a few coldies and as they neared the river, they could hear voices shouting and laughing with glee.
As they got closer, they saw a bunch of young ladies skinny dipping in the river. Both men being of reputable character made the ladies aware of their presence and the ladies made their way to deeper water.
One of the girls shouted “We’re not coming out until you leave”.
Geoff frowned, “We didn’t come down here to watch you swim naked”.
Then Jaz held up the bucket and said, “We only come down to feed our pet crocodile”.
Jaz was always a little quicker on his feet than his best mate Geoff.
