I guess to an Aussie nothing is sacred eh?
"Strewth, it's the story of Genesis in Strine"
http://news.telegraph.co.uk/news/mai...4/ixworld.html
The Australian broadcaster who translated large sections of the New Testament into Strine has turned his attention to the Bible once again
This time has rewritten well-known Old Testament stories in the Australian vernacular.

Published in 2003, the 90-page Aussie Bible (well, bits of it anyway) proved an unexpected hit and sold 100,000 copies in Australia.

It was promoted as a "ripping yarn about Jesus of Nazareth" in which Mary was "a pretty special sheila" and the Three Wise Men were "eggheads from out east."


The sequel, More Aussie Bible,

which recasts Genesis and Proverbs, will be published in May by the Bible Society of New South Wales.
