Thought I'd share this because it gave me a good chuckle and gives a good outsiders frank view of Australia..

They are great!

Australia lost a Prime Minister (Harold Holt). Went for an ocean swim, disappeared, and then they named an aquatic centre after him. Cruel.

No it's not, it is just an Aussie thing we do.


Australians use terms that would be obscenely offensive in the UK. The term 'Wog' is thrown about, and 'Coon Cheese' is a thing.

What is wrong with Coon Cheese, I have some in the fridge!

As for

Fairy bread (aka white bread, margarine, and hundreds & thousands) is so strange, and also a national treasure.

Typical Pommy Bloke. Can't even get fairy bread right! We do not use margarine on fairy bread. Fairy bread is made using butter! Poms can break anything!

I once saw Aussie comedian Carl Barron perform so funny:

"Have you ever noticed that Australians tell you what they're not. "How are you Steve?" "Not bad. "When will the train get here? Not long"

The Outback was first used by Banjo Patterson or Henry Lawson, I can't remember which, to refer to anything west of Wagga. Everyone living in Griffith or on the Newel is living in the Outback. I lived 32 kms west of Wagga for six months, so I am proud to say I have lived in the outback. Seriously, there is a low ridge just west of Wagga and as soon as you get over it, the climate and soil change. I have seen it raining in Wagga and almost right on that ridge it stopped.

Maggies snip your ears, they don't go for your eyes (in my experience).

Regardless, I will never be one of those people with zipties sticking out of their bike helmets. I'll take my blinding/ear loss like a goddamned man.

What is coon cheese? I'm picturing something made of raccoon milk. How do you milk a raccoon? I have no idea but I'm sure the Aussies have figured it out. Oh, raccoons bite? Doesn't everything in Australia?

Meat allergy tick
After being bitten, eating red meat can send a person into anaphylactic shock and dead

I had to google myself..

Coon cheese is named after its American creator, Edward William Coon (1871–1934) of Philadelphia, who patented a method, subsequently known as the Cooning process
