How to Get the Rubber Glove Treatment

I went to watch the Mondoville women’s hoopsters this evening. A substantial portion of the team is from Australia, as is the coach. I’ve taught one of the ladies, and have talked Aussie rock with the coach on numerous occasions — good folks.

However, I find I can never think of Australia without remembering a story a friend of mine told me. He was on a trip to the Antipodes, and as he was going through immigration and customs, whatever the usual rituals are, the functionary asked him if he had ever been convicted of a felony.

My friend raised his eyebrows and said, “Is that still a requirement?”
