Wouldn't call that a waste of time


Some of the comments on my last comic reminded me that I've been meaning to make a comic about this Australian saying. When used like this it basically means "I'm not here to waste time"

Cue the inevitable Rule34 pic set in an alternate universe where they both have hot steamy sex with the spiders.

I just love how the pink spider is disappointed, by the way.

I'm an Australian. This expression was fairly common in the 1990s but it has tapered off a bit. Some younger people may not have heard it, I suppose. The earliest example of it I can find in a published book is in the 1998 Edge of the Rain by Beverley Harper.

Australia needs to have a consult with someone about that, being a British Colony takes its toll to the mind :)

Fucking spiders in Oz is not only a waste of time, it's an occupation that could end very badly.

As a golden rule, in Australia if it crawls, if it jumps, if it grows, if it's got legs, if it floats, if it's green, if it's alive or even dead,... don't touch it.

Every time I see that duster, I keep thinking it's cotton candy or a popsicle.
