Weird Mob has the author as Nino Culotta, but is actually by John O'Grady. I
think you're right and "Let stalk Strine" came out at about the same time.
LSS is by (of course) Affabeck Lauder (apparently really Alistair Morrison).
I still use Strinisms sometimes, but not many people understand. (Emma? ,
short for Emma Chisit, or How much is it?)
