G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and pardon me for eating my breakfast while I deliver this announcement; but if I don’t chow down on this crunchy yellow leaf, someone else’ll get it.
We have now more than 79,000 comments in the bin, and we’re shooting for that glorious milestone of 80,000. This time last year, we would’ve easily collected 1,000 more comments in half a month. This year? Well, let’s see!
The lucky winner who posts Comment No. 80,000 will win either an autographed book or one of those cool T-shirts that says “If they have to kill us, they’ve lost.” The King of Rottnest Island wears one.
Ah! And how do you suppose he got to be king of Rottnest Island in the first place? Eh? He won a bloomin’ comment contest, that’s how! He was universally admired for that: everybody demanded he be king.
All comments are eligible, except for the following: comments abusive to anyone else at this site, f-bombs and other profane expressions, ads thinly disguised as comments–which means someone thinks we must be really stupid–and comments just too dopey to bother with. Beyond that, anything goes.

It is always fun to see who wins. The book is a great prize, and one we can share with other.
Quokkas look adorable when they’re eating. But then, they look adorable when they’re doing anything.
Enjoy your breakfast Byron.
Wow you have so much comments on your blog
I like to think it’s because my posts are so interesting, and not just because I give things away.
Your thinking is correct, Lee. Not politically correct, but factually correct. ( Phew, I had to clarify that!) 😳😉
I like it best when readers start conversing with each other–makes the old place seem more home-like.
It must be fun having Byron around. Just so cute.
