The skies will open and Hughie will send it down. — Les Tanner, Nature's a Nice Place to Visit, from Tanner With Words, 1981. Quoted in Aussie Humour, Macmillan, 1988, ISBN 0-7251-0553-4, page 93.
2006: Pipe scowled. “Hughie... send us swell! Not just any swell, but a grand macking swell! In return, we pray you will accept this near-virginal surfboard sacrifice that we make in your name!” — DC Green, Surf Europe.
