But then again, I just won it as well :) Bruce Springsteen was at my celebration. The better half demanded John Lennon appear for her award though she had to settle with Ringo

LOL ... I think that tallies as a "gotcha". :p

Quick recovery, though I'm a tad surprised, as a guy, you won "Mother of the Year!"! (Boy, Aussies really DO do it differently) :D

Pretty neat, eh? Though, for me, da bomb would have been if they spoke the recipient's name, aloud.

Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi!

LOL, That was a good-en.
I read it at lunch time and nearly fell for it, but at the last hurdle after I had read Johns reply - All became clear ;)

Very good one though and nicely done :D

Glad you liked it. I'll put you 3rd into the same hole! :D (Someone of facebook went for it too).

Pretty real looking.

I really should post more gags - everyone obsiously thinks I'm so serious all the time! (Except the Oop, of course. "Ohhhh Daaad," she says.)

Had a devil of a time getting the video into FLV format though (ended up re-imaging the PC over it, b/c I downloaded some buggy program that promised conversion and ended up hosing my Adobe Flash install instead). :|

An absolute gotcha. And about one minute later it sunk in. :(

LOL ... That's that "one minute" between [RTN] and "doh!" :p

(Been there ... done that).

If it makes you feel any better, two others fell for it too... and they weren't Aussies! :D
