As an aussie...
As an aussie I thought I would just respond to some of the comments in here:
"terrorism! - aussies cant even spell it!"
Yeah tell that to the families of the nearly 100 aussies who died in the bali bombings moron.
"discrimination is alive and well down-under!!"
Every country has it's dumb hicks... look at all the red states in America. It's pretty harsh to paint us all with the same brush though.
"Oh, wait, they are sheepsh4ggers..."
Nope, that's the new zelanders. To quote wikipedia page on domestic sheep: "In New Zealand, sheep outnumber the human population 12 to 1"
"I suspect the book was merely a pretext, the real reason for his removal was one of the following..."
I suspect it was because he went to an irish pub in a distinctly redneck town and ordered pink cocktails with the fairy umbrella's in them.
"after all they call beer XXXX cos they forgot how to spell beer"
Hey that's a joke about Queenslanders. No-one else in Australia would be stupid enough to drink that crap.
"The whole country is turning into The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert...."
Do you all you poms just speak in cliche? seriously, have you ever even been here?
P.S I was just wondering... have you guys figured out the great practical joke us Aussies have been playing on the rest of the world for the last couple of decades yet? You know no-one in Australia actually drinks Fosters right? That is the most disgusting swill we can produce, that's why we export all of it to the UK and America.
Drink Australian, think Australian? ROFL.
