An Australian guy goes into a bar in the Greek Islands.
Jill, the Australian barmaid takes his order and notices his Australian accent. Over the course of the night they talk quite a bit. At the end of the night he asks her if she wants to sleep with him. Although she is attracted to him she says no. He then offers to pay her two hundred dollars for the deed. Jill is travelling the world and because she is short of funds she agrees.
The next night the guy turns up again and after showing her plenty of attention throughout the night he asks if she will sleep with him again for two hundred dollars. She figures in for a penny in for a pound - and it was fantastic the night before - so she agrees.
This goes on for five nights.
On the sixth night the guy comes into the bar. But this night he orders a beer and just goes and sits in the corner. Jill is disappointed and thinks that maybe she should pay him more attention.
She goes over and sits next to him. She asks him where he is from and he tells her Melbourne.
"So am I" she says. "What suburb in Melbourne?"
"Glen Iris" he says. "That's amazing" she says, "So am I, what street?"
"Cameo Street" he says. "This is unbelievable" she says, "What number?"
He says "Number twenty" and she is astonished.
"You are not going to believe this" she says, "I'm from number twenty two and my parents still live there!"
"I know" he says "Your father gave me a thousand dollars to give to you!"
He who drinks Australian - thinks Australian.
