I understood about one word in three. Not at all like Steve Irwin.

 ;D in that case I wrote it correctly *nod* I still remember the day I realised the word 'Strine' was actually 'Australian' said in a thick Australian accent. The accent favors dropping leading vowels, compression and not faithfully following its own rules......

Actually, I was talking about the video. You were completely incomprehensible. :D

*laugh*

Actually the video was pretty spot on for a broad Australian accent, the number of times I've seen an Australian in tv/movies who sounds like they're from South Africa or England *mutter*
