A Bonza Jest: Wild Bush Pigs.

Best cobbers Peter Purple and Larry Lime are out in the Aussie bush hunting Wild Bush Pigs. Secretly Peter wishes Larry was dead because he owes him $100,000 he lent as a deposit on a house and land package located in a popular small town. After repeated requests to pay back the $100.000 Larry always dodges the subject.

Meanwhile Peter and Larry are stalking their way slowly along a well worn path through the dense Aussie bush with rifles poised and at the same time battling annoying biting insects, looking and listening for Wild Bush Pigs in the undergrowth.

A short way down the path they come to a steep incline and both sprint to the top when all of a sudden Larry collapses to the ground clutching his chest, gasping for air then his skin turns pale as a ghost, lips blue and eyes glaze over.

With lightning speed Peter reaches into the top pocket of his hunting vest plucks out his mobile phone and speed dials triple zero. What seems an eternity the call is finally answered, terror stricken Peter says, I think my best cobber just died, what can i do?.
Olivia the consultant replies, first of all you need to calm down so we can establish whether your best cobber has actually past away.
The silence is deafening on Peter's end of the line until a ear shattering gunshot is heard then a smug Peter says, i'm pretty sure he's past away, now what?.

As Monty Python would say, "He's dead"

WV: illicsl - short for illictly slain?

Ha Ha, should have made him sign a check or the deed to the house/land package first.
