The incident occurred in Australia in 1980 - a baby disappeared under mysterious circumstances near Uluru (Ayers Rock). The mother, Lindy Chamberlain, camping with her family, claimed to have seen a dingo carrying her baby from their tent, and immortalized the phrase, "The dingo's got my baby!". She was convicted of murdering her baby but later acquitted when new evidence suggested that the baby was, in fact, killed by a dingo
Oh frizzlewitz the dingo ate my baby.... again

Eclectic, non-sequitir phrase often used in the place of a general acknowledge to another statement. Meant to convey general absurdity. Refers to an incident from the 1980's documented in the movie "A Cry in the Dark", in which a seemingly absurd story about dingoes attacking a child turned out to be true.
"How was your weekend?". "Dingo ate my baby". "Cool".
