My Favourite Australian Joke

This won't make much sense to the non-Aussies who read this, but here goes, my all-time favourite Australian joke:

The last sheep was shorn and two shearers started to talk as they gathered up their belongings. The first shearer says to the second one, 'Now that the shearing season is over, what are you going to do?"

The second shearer thinks for a minute and says, "I think I'm going to go down to Sydney."

The first shearer asks, "Which route are you going to take?"

The second shearer thinks for a minute and then answers, "I think I'll take the wife. She stayed with me through the drought."
