For those not au fait with legendary Australian pastimes, you may be delighted to know that the annual ‘Pig and Pussy Hunt’ started yesterday.

pine creek Just 200 kilometres south of Darwin lies the sleeply hamlet of Pine Creek, wherein you will now find we manly types out there with shotguns and rifles at the ready, our utes loaded up with enough ammo to single-handedly change the destiny of Captain Parmenter and Fort Courage.

For those who require further information, utes are ‘utilities’, vehicles with tray top backs that only a real man worth his salt will drive.

We have a saying here:

Boy + ute = man
Man + ute = mighty warrior

Mighty warriors will be hunting feral pigs, feral cats and cane toads, a massive problem in the outback.

As Hunt organiser Rodney Haines says, “it’s a massive problem. They estimate there are six million wild pigs just in the Top End [Northern Territory - Ed]. So imagine how much they have got to eat just to keep alive, from the crocodile eggs, to turtle eggs, to birds. Anything they can eat, they’ll eat.”

Should you feel so inclined to support our noble mighty warriors carry out their, all facetiousness aside, massively valuable service, please feel free to create your own badge or bumper sticker, proudly emblazoned with the words

I hunt pigs and pussies

I’m sure your family will be proud of you.
