Brisvegas question

I have always wondered why people from Brisbane use this term when describing their home town. Having been to both Las Vegas and Brisbane I can't see the connection. Las Vegas is interesting and worth visiting again, Brisbane is neither. Flame away!

Re: Brisvegas question

I think it was originally a sarcastic stab from people down south at the big country town of Brisbane. For reasons best known to themselves, the term seems to have been adopted by some Brisbanites.

Just to defend Brisbane, it can be interesting sometimes!

Re: Brisvegas question

I originally heard it from someone from sydney I think... I had a bit of a laugh about it (partly due to that ironic reason above) and started saying it..

Plus it rolls off the tounge so well :)
