Bert newton's new show on the other hand is nothing to be proud of.
Anyway, this stuff is something I dug out of a text file I had which I probably got off another forum
TOP 10 REASONS FOR BEING AUSTRALIAN:

THE 'FOSTERS AD DURING THE OLYMPICS' VERSION
I don't have a kangaroo for a pet
I don't wrestle with crocodiles
And I don't wear a cork hat
I fight wars
But never start wars
I would rather make peace
I can wear my country's flag with pride
I am a rock
I am the ocean
I am the island continent
My brothers are the Smiths, the Wilson's, the Santerellis, the De
The Wong's and the Jagamarras
I play football without a helmet
I like beetroot on my hamburger
I ride in the front seat of the taxi
I believe it's a prawn not a shrimp
I believe the world is round and down under is on top
I believe Australia is the best address on Earth
And Australians brew the best beer.
THE 'REAL AUSSIE' VERSION
I ate my pet Kangaroo
I am # scared of crocodiles
And I wear a baseball cap
I love Star Wars
And the wookie is my favorite
I would rather get pissed
And watch someone else carry the country's flag with pride
I like to rock
To Billy Ocean
I am blind to my incompetence
My brothers are the Smith's the Wilson's, the Wogs, the Lebs,
The Chinks and the Abos
I watch football with a tinnie
I take the beetroot off my hamburgers
And throw Macca's pickles on windows
I do runners from taxis
I believe the world is flat
And Australia is #ing miles away from anywhere
I believe Australia has the best address on earth
And Australians brew the best beer on earth
And that's why we never touch Fosters
We export that # outta here.
There's also things like Rugby league, union, the 'she'll be right' attitude ( I love that), The majority of people not giving a rats arse about
what country you come from as long as you don't think you're better than everyone else.
ABC and the SBS (you know you love Lee Lin Chin)
