Fairyland...

So, I was at work today (I work in a bank as a teller) and a big man walks up to the counter (*heh* this totally sounds like a joke..). He asks to change his address.
"sure" says I (I am paid to be helpful at work, unlike home) "what's your new address?"

he tells me.

And his new address was in Faiyland.

"okay" says I. Not smiling, smirking or laughing (see I CAN be a serious type bank person when it is called for!!) "could you spell that for me" (I was thinking I must have misheard...this man was too huge to fit through tiny trapdoors or skip along yellow brick roads or however else one may choose to enter Fairyland)

But no, Fairyland is spelled, well 'FAIRYLAND'.


And apparently Fairyland looks like this.
And if Google can be believed Fairyland has no public toilets and no houses for rent or sale (no toadstools either I believe hahahahaha!!!!)

Fairyland's claim to fame is that it once had a school. And as far as I can tell, thats about it for Fairyland. That, and it is near Chinchilla somewhere in Queensland Australia.

So there you have it. There truly really IS a fairyland...its just much less sparkly and dainty than I had pictured it in my head...

Strangely amusing! I am AMAZED you could hold back from yelling, "This whacko reckons he lives in Fairy Land!!!" to everyone in the bank! I bet that guy regrets moving house!!!
