Nor the alternative version with the verse that goes

My brother sells rubbers to sailors
My Mum makes the holes with a pin
My sister performs the abortions
My God how the money rolls in!

I think you’ll find that everyone concerned we’re just going through the motions.

Does Australia still count as a province?

I was impressed by this guy:

Don't be impressed. I read a bit into the backstory.

He bought an island in croc country. Makes money from tourists. Encourages his dogs to bait crocs - there is another vid of that going wrong, little dog eaten.

Just another arse baiting wildlife to get a reaction and impress people.

She'll probably be ticketed for not having the child in a certified baby seat instead.

"Je mag alleen die verdomde deuren eraf blazen!"

Quote
Criminal gangs armed with explosives are stalking the ATMs of the Netherlands, Belgium and northern Germany each night, hoping to find an unprotected machine to blast open and rob.

Amsterdam has been plagued by gangs targeting ATMs with air compressors for years, but after authorities in the Dutch capital responded by making it harder to rob cash machines in this way, criminals responded in turn by switching to actual explosives to blow them up.

Amsterdam actually regulates that all ATMs must be shut by 11PM each night – pretty early for one of the capitals of European nightlife but required because of the threat.
...

“They can’t work out the proper charge for the bomb and keep blowing up the fucking money,” said the cop, who wasn’t permitted to speak to the media. “They’ve been unable to adapt from the easier days of using compressed air.”

Attacking ATMs is a serious industry for criminals, with attacks common enough to make finding an ATM in Amsterdam after dark nearly impossible, much to the chagrin of local drug dealers.

“We have to put in the order disclaimer that all bank machines are closed at 2300 but we deliver [via WhatsApp] until midnight because people will order then realise they can’t get any money out,” said one dealer, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “We tell people take the cash you need at by 1900, because once it gets dark, the machines close because of the stupid gangs.”
