A large steak please, and make it Skippy!

An interesting little story from the Telegraph, reporting on a suggestion that farming Kangaroos, rather then sheep and cattle, could markedly reduce Australia's greenhouse gas emissions.

Kangaroos apparently have a unique stomach bacteria which means that they produce far less methane than cattle or sheep.

Jeez, just imagine trying to round up a herd of kangaroos!

"What's that Skippy, mate? Why am I holding a bottle of barbie sauce and hiding something behind me back? Well, come a little bit closer and I'll let you in on a ripper surprise!"
