Thats not the wobbleboard that the oils are referring to.... the wobble board
is a sheet of plastic that you hold the sides of and it makes a kind of
wobble-wobble sound.... used by rolf harris as a musical instrument in the
70's and 80's....

Smashing the wobbleboard i beleive refers to the overseas image of australian
music that the oils were often confronted with that australian music = rolf
harris and ac/dc...
