bobuck" meaning "bad water" - or
as now phrased "Din din yarn"-
has seemingly only been preserved
by having been the point in a
aboriginal "Joe Miller" where a
native having been found at a place
now called "Kinlatta murrart"
(Jumps up d-l) picking Kangaroo apples
was forth with carried off in the "Murrarts" bag
- as in the Murrart offering him water
out of a puddle to drink he said
"Danbun bobuck" where upon the Murrart
gor more - when he said the same.
Hereupon the Murrart had to go down
into a deep gully for clean water and
the black fellow ran off and escaped.
"Danbun bobuck" is now used as we
might say "the grapes are sour" - and the
blacks say "we don't use these words now
-only Din din yarn - father belonging to you
and me said Danbun bobuck"
I mention these things
