Voting is open until the 10th November and they are encouraging you to vote on your preferred time and tell them what you think.

The Thirsty Camel team are hoping that this will finally give Australians a nationwide universally agreed upon drinking time, which is good enough to set your watch to.

We are a bunch of strange people us Australians and many love to have a reward at the end of the week or a drink at the end of the day.

Mick Molloy is famously quoted as saying it is a national disgrace that we as a nation do not tight know officially what time beer o'clock starts.

Sure enough as meat pies, kangaroos and the Richmond football club, the Thirsty Camel team have decided we should work out exactly what time it is socially acceptable to enjoy a quiet one or two or three or...

With a sense of fun and a cheery measure of civic duties, they are inviting us have our say in the poll and then use it as another excuse to go down and toast beer o'clock together.

As if you needed another reason to get into the spirit (excuse the pun) - how about a chance to share in $40,000 of prizes. It could all be yours!

If your chosen beverage is only soft drink or water (heaven forbid the team would say) - it doesn't matter, they are looking for national drinking time, regardless of the beverage.

Not interested in the time but wouldn't mind the $40,000!

There's heaps of references on the web alluding to 3pm being 'Beer O'Clock'. Given that we're many of us in conventional week day office jobs are chained to the desk 'til 5pm - perhaps 6pm?

PS: I've witnessed Mick Malloy's character on 'Time of Our Lives' smoozing it up big time in the evening and paying for it the next day (great performance)!
