Black as the arse of a goat

Posted by Jack on December 05, 2005

"Black as the arse of a goat" is a phrase I heard used by miners at Mount Isa (underground copper mine in Australia) to describe the darkness underground when the lights went out.
Has anybody heard this used anywhere else? Or know where it comes from?
