June 29. Day 181. Laugh, Kookaburra laugh

When I was a child my mother told me that if a Kookaburra laughed it meant someone had wet the bed.
So if I heard the distinctive Kooraburra cackle, I'd spend the day looking around trying to spot the bed wetter.
Clearly the kookaburra has a wicked sense of humour.
The fact is, it's hard to hear that laugh and not get a smile on your face. It's totally infectious.
Mind you, this bloke didn't seem to think it was much of a laughing matter when a Noisy Miner flew in and took up a perch on the electric wire right beside him this morning.
He (or perhaps she. Kookaburra sexing is not one of my specialist subjects) took off with great haste.
Or perhaps Mr Kookaburra has heard the childhood spoof song:
Kookaburra sits on electric wire, 
jumping up and down with his pants on fire.
 Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, 
Kookaburra. Hot your pants must be
Or maybe the Kookaburra took off because he decided Queensland wasn't the place to live right now. After all we all know Kookaburra, gay your life must be....
Now that's no laughing matter
