Ah, Aussie Humour

It’s good to have a laugh at yourself now and again.  When you’re Aussie, you kinda have to 🙂

(Seriously, Christmas in WINTER of al seasons is just so backward!  🙂 )

FUN FACT: Australia invented Wi-Fi.

 

(For those dirty-minded savages imagining something inappropriate: a THONG is a loose sandal.  That’s the REAL definition of the word.)

(Yeah, seriously, this is a problem I’ve noticed with Yanks.  Imagine an Australian in America or Europe, when asked where he’s from, or when mentioning where something is, responding simply “Queensland” or “Victoria”, without explanation.  That’s basically what you do.)

It’s a matter of dispute as to whether the delicious pavlova (anyone who hasn’t heard of that is officially an uncultured barbarian) was invented in Australia or New Zealand.

Here in Australia, we’re not Victorian about swear words.

Now THIS brings back memories from my brief school years!

I have some horrifying information for australians about how americans think you’re supposed to pronounce Emu: they say “ee-moo” I tell them how to actually say it “ee-mew” and theyre like How Dare you tell me i’m wrong

I made a handy guide so Americans can understand weather reports in Celsius:

0 = Literally freezing
10 = Chilly
20 = Nice
30 = Hot
40 = Fuck you
50 = Australia

                    1. On my season preferences? Or on it being autumn? Here in Australia & the rest of the Southern Hemisphere, the seasons are the opposite of yours.
                      (Of course, we never have snow. Although I would like to experience it!)

                    2. Everything’s opposite in the Southern Hemisphere (SH). Even the direction rivers flow & leaves grow (so I heard once, at least).
                      You experience spring/summer when the Northern Hemisphere (NH) is tilted towards the sun, and the SH tilted away (which is when we have autumn/winter). We experience summer when the SH is tilted towards the sun, and the NH is tilted away (your winter).

                    3. LOL, yeah 🙂
                      Um… that’s a tough one. I’m one of those people who’ve never been entirely sure. I’m a University student at the moment, and I’m currently looking at retail work.
                      I MIGHT at some point to a teaching or librarianship course – MIGHT.

                    4. That’s a tough one. I have many foods I love – lasagna, pizza, cake, M&M chocolate, anything KFC or Hungry Jacks, any kind of (clean) meat.
                      (My apologies – at least some of those are stuff you can’t eat, aren’t they?)

                    5. I don’t know about “best thing on earth”, but I enjoy a good song/music. Apart from movie songs (“Let it gooooo”), my favourites are Christian/Messianic songs – particularly Paul Wilbur and Don Francisco.

                    6. My Dad often tells me I need to go to bed; Grandma doesn’t.
                      I’m trying to catch up on some Uni work I’m behind on (and a blog I’ve been behind on); I’ve just about done enough to satisfy my conscience (LOL).
