MELBOURNE: Soul-mates are hard to find; even harder to keep. Especially if you're into the creepy-crawly-scaly. And if you're not the full quid - well mate that's fair dinkum.
But Crocodile Mick Dundee was all smiles today as he told reporters that he had finally met the woman of his dreams
Expounding on the vagaries of love Mick spoke from his heart:
"Say a bloke meets this Sheila and wants a fair go. You wanna give it a burl but she's all about rack off you flamin galah. Then you spot this other Sheila and well maybe she's a bit of a dog, but she's using a Bushman's hanky and you're thinking Ace. Now you're ready to chuck a sickie and lair it up"
Appears ole Mick had settled for a lonely life with kangaroo Kate - then fell head over heels in love when he first set his bleary eyes on croc gal Melbourne Vicki.
Vicki had dumped previous hubbies and lovers for the company of her 8-ft crocs which she keeps in a bathtub in her Melbourne home; takes for walks and croons to sleep holding them close to her knockers.
Mick hopes to take Vicki and her crocs back to his home in Walkabout Creek.
"Any plans to marry Mick?"
"Roight mate but first I'll take me a quick pommy shower and have a bit of nasty", he winked.
