Meet Wally Newell.
Known as Wally the Walker, he predated Kevin the Head .. and if this kid was around today he wouldn’t be wearing Billabong because when his dad drove them all home from their holidays at Ballina last year they had to call by Tenterfield on the way down to have a few beers with Jack the Stutterer. In the Pub. This took a while. So Wally walked around a bit.
Half of the blokes in the pub were wearing Bong T’s. Blokes punting or drinking, playing pool, blokes drinking. Big fellows, kegs on legs. Hooting in the winners. Playing White Hunter. Plenty of hefty eaters in the beergarden wearing Bong shorts.
So that’s why Wally won’t have any ~ just fine looking like what I look like, thanks.
… and yeah, that is a shaka.
