back to article Oz pair in blow-up sex doll whitewater ride

Police Down Under are less than impressed with a couple of jokers who decided it would be a wizard wheeze to ride inflatable sex dolls down a swollen Yarra River, prompting emergency service intervention to haul them from the torrent. The male and female joyriders, both 19, mounted their blow-up transportation in the Melbourne …

Melbourne isn't in Queensland...

...Melbourne is in Victoria, as is much of Queensland's water.

Victoria, big chunks of NSW and bits of SA are being flooded too.

But we still got a bit of drought happening over in Western Australia.

Also a few parts of Tasmania

but at 0.3% of Australias population, we are always forgotten. Thankfully not to many people's houses were flooded and no one died. but still a few days of 350+ mm of rain causes issues...

The Police later laid charges...

....the pair were said to be deflated by the ordeal.

This is why I love Oz. You legends.

The land of why not? Do they have the same legions of 'elf n saftey' commisars that we do?

'elf n saftey'

Please don't try and turn El Reg comments into the Daily Mail droolers rant.

re: Do they have the same legions of 'elf n saftey' commisars that we do?

Yes we do... and then some. Oz has bureaucracy that Blighty's paper-shufflers can only dream of.

A UK marriage license isn't enough to get your name changed - my wife had to do the deed-poll thing before she could bring her Oz passport into line. And we're talking being married for over 10 years, not some spur-of-the-moment Vegas trip.

You want by-the-book? Try speeding fines on the motorway which kick in a 2mph over the limit. Through the city, speed limits constantly change by 3-6mph. Six lane roads drop to 25mph near schools, despite there being railings around the pavement, traffic lights on the zebra crossing and a lollipop lady on patrol on the zebra crossing with the traffic lights. It's my daughter's school, but I think at some point you have to let natural selection take it's course!

You want bizarre? Set out from Melbourne down the nice wide smooth M1 (speed limit 62mph). When you get to the end of the motorway, the speed limit *rises* to 68mph. I'm grateful for the few extra mph, but I just don't understand!

Yes, regrettably it's true:

Now when I google "sex toy" and "torrent" all I get are news articles.

A simple mistake

This is obviously a simple case of confusion between "pontoon" and "poontang".

Right at the pound bend tunnel

The yarra is pretty sedate down that stretch until it suddenly goes underground at the Pound Bend Tunnel.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pound_Bend_Tunnel

You can try the tunnel on a kayak when the river is low but its pretty dangerous. Flooding would have pushed the river level right up to the roof of the tunnel, leaving little room for dolls and passengers.

There's a fair few uses...

"the powers that be warned latex ladies are not recognised flotation devices"

Still useful for getting in the carpool lane tho

Don't Australians know what a blow-up woman is for?
