    Oh nice ! It would be a pleasure to post a clue but unfortunately I'm absent for a few days and won't be able to respond to the guesses :(

    Someone else can post a clue.

    Nope and Nope!

    Clue #1

    "Oh for God's sake, just slap it in the middle and be done with it"


    Clue #2

    "We'll give you food!" He said.
    "Yeah, but we'll make you smile!" The other delegate chimed in.

    Clue #3

    I was in Belgium recently, exchanging my hard earned cash for some pumpernickel. The baker selling it to me was a gargantuan man who stood well over six feet tall. I wasn't sure if he understood my tongue, so I asked him "Do you understand what I'm saying?". The goliath of a man just smiled wryly as he handed me a sandwich containing dark brown paste made from yeast extract.

    Well, the second clue refers to Sydney and Melbourne, I'm pretty sure...so, Australia?

    Definitely Australia, love the third clue

    "Buying bread from a man in Brussels
    He was Six foot four, and full of muscles
    I said 'do you speak-a my language?'
    He just smiled, and gave me a Vegemite sandwich!'


    Since Australia's been guessed though, I'm just going to say Sydney for the sake of being different

    Wellington. Close enough. :crazyeye:
    And no, this is in no way intended to be a sensible guess.

    Ding Ding Ding! *Close Enough* The correct answer is the of course - The Australian City States of Sydney and Melbourne

    Let's go through it shall we?

    "Oh for God's sake, just slap it in the middle and be done with it"

    This refers to the Government's response to the two cities arguing over where to put the Australian capital of Canberra. The capital city is located pretty much smackbang in the middle of the two most populous Australian cities.

    "We'll give you food!" He said.
    "Yeah, but we'll make you smile!" The other delegate chimed in.


    This refers to Sydney being Maritime and Melbourne being Mercantile

    And as Pouakai stated, the third clue is a reference to the famous Aussie song - Land Down Under!

    Good job guys!
