“For after-dinner speakers, raconteurs, or just browsers, here is an entertaining and invaluable collection of Australia’s most famous quips, witticisms and comical comments, compiled by that master of Australiana, Bill Wannan.  The unwitting contributors to this book represent the whole spectrum of the Australian scene, past and present.  There are quotes from Henry Lawson, C. J. Dennis, ‘Banjo’ Paterson, Lennie Lower, Barry Humphries, Phillip Adams, Fred Dagg and other well-known humourists and writers.  Politicians quoted here – often unintentionally funny – include Alfred Deakin, Billy Hughes, Sir Robert Menzies, Gough Whitlam, Sir Henry Bolte, Joh Bjelke-Petersen and many others from the prominent to the obscure.  Bushmen, sportsmen, churchmen, television and radio commentators, journalists, trade unionists and hundreds of people from all walks of life are given expression in this great collection.”
