Once a jolly owner, started a cafe fire, under the shade of a poor al-i-bi.

I've just seen Channel 9 news. The Matilda Cafe in Armadale has been fire bombed after a failed burglary attempt on an empty till. The burglar clearly hasn't noticed that there is a global pandemic going on. The owner has appeared, clearly distressed, that his dream has gone up in flames.

It has been reported that the cafe was on the market before COVID-19. Clearly the swagman has boiled his own billy.

I know a joke. A cafe owner and his lawyer were having a beer.

The lawyer said, “I’m here because my house burned down and everything I owned was destroyed by a fire. I'm homeless and need a drink. Thank Christ, the insurance company paid for everything.”

"That’s quite a coincidence," said the cafe owner. “I’m here because my cafe and all my belongings were destroyed by a flood and my insurance company also paid for everything.”

The puzzled lawyer asked, “How do you start a flood?”

You'd better stuff your jumbuck in your tucker bag cobber, before the troopers arrive.
