short one today

This evening I shared a few beers with brother Graham. His house is about ten kilometers from our place and Joan had said that she would drive up and collect me in the intoxicated state before meal time. And that she did! We watched a few TV programmes...almost all of them of American origins....why do they clap their own achievements? That is something that is not Australian. Traditionally, in Australia, winners wait for others to applaud; not clap their own achievements.

As I said; a short and intoxicated post!

I think it is more of a "GO, Go, Go," thing rather than self congratulations. maybe they think if they clap all the time they won't forget to clap an opponent who they might rather give the finger to. Then again , maybe they are just reading the clap prompter:)
Go figure!
