It is well known that humour is regional, but this is the first joke that I can say is truly Queenslander:
At a national conference of the Australian Hotels Association, the general managers of Cascade Brewery
(Tasmania), Tooheys (New South Wales), XXXX (Queensland), CUB (Victoria) and Coopers (South Australia) found themselves sitting at the same table for lunch.
When the waitress asked what they wanted to drink, the GM of Tooheys said without hesitation, “I’ll have a Tooheys New..”
To which the boss of Coopers rejoined, “I’ll have a Coopers, the King of Beers.”
And the bloke from Cascade asked for “a Cascade, the cleanest draught on the planet.”
The General Manager of Carlton & United paused a moment and then placed his order: “VB.”
The head of XXXX smiled and said “I’ll have a Diet Coke.”
The others looked at him has if he had sprouted a new head.
“Well,” he said with a shrug, “if you poofters aren’t drinking beer, then neither will I.”
