I bloody love you for beating me to almost every Moomba joke possible except the best one.

The organisers of Melbourne's Moomba festival were told by the local indiginous leaders that the word "Moomba" meant "Get together and have fun"

What it actually means in the local language can I put this delicately...arse, bum, poo-hole, the exit door.

It is possibly the greatest practical joke of all time that Moomba is still called Moomba.
