    I lost my castle in the declining market, unfortunately.

    ... I will dig a ditch around my house and turn on the hose though... make a moat. Put some pointy stick things in the water as well as an electrical current.

    You put Australian and honorable into the same thought? And then add... spud?

    I wouldn't need a crocodile anyway... just toss a few Aussies into the moat. They are dangerous enough.
