The Legend of Tiddelik
Charley Alexander said that once Tiddilick
swallowed all the water. Every one was trying
to make him laugh. First of all the Read [sic] headed
cockatoos tried but he would not look at them.
Then the crows all corroboreed before him
and then the Salmon, but he took no notice.
At last the conger eels corroboreed - a big fire
was made and they dressed themselves up in
grass and weeds and danced. Tiddelick
turned his eyes toward them and they made
him laugh. Then all the water ran out.
At that time all the birds and animals
N.B. Tiddilik is the large bullfrog.
