You guys may think you hate us, but if you ever got your butts in a sling with a WW scenario, we would still have your back.
And that antar is the very reason we can get replies from you guys. As bellagirl says..you need to understand the humour. Takin the piss and gettin a humourous reaction is the very nature of our background. Not intended to hurt feelings.
not that ole chestnut "the war" again....
take a chill pill....its simply the aussie sense of humour all through this thread.
hence...the reason we could never merge.

Stop with the horror stories about the fauna. Lets not start on the poisonous plants.
Our economy is OK but a few more tourists are welcome and Yanks tend to spend heavily so lighten up. I know we lose a few tourists every year but hell, they lose some of ours too. So join hands, sing Waltzing Matilda and Tie me kangaroo down sport and accept the cash.
Those bases they want, they are genuine cash cows, golden geese laying gold. It's all good dollars mates! Just take a gander, that's us.
Now, could I interest you all in a trip Down Under. Great food, great girls, hansom guys, great scenery and take your choice between relaxing and sports, we have it all. (End Commercial)
