qms commented on the word nipaluna
The scholars arrived in a schooner
And drinking began all the sooner
For, as sailors will,
They fired up the still
And raised up their first nipaluna.

bilby commented on the word nipaluna
The Uni Revue - an undergrad cabaret that has something of a cult status locally - is already salivating.

There once was a lad from nipaluna
Who fancied himself a hot-air ballooner
But his first flight went astray
- crash-landed in Geilston Bay! -
And now he's nowt but tall-tale salooner.
An indigenous name for the Hobart area of Tasmania, Australia.
