TOTP - Top Ten Misconceptions About Australia

This one goes out to Leanne, a workmate of Klaus - the ten things that the rest of the world gets wrong about those lovely Australians:-

  • 10 - The fastest sport in Australia are the koala-bear-races
  • 9 - Kangaroos are used as shopping bags
  • 8 - All men are named Bruce
  • 7 - Every Australian person has its own sheep farm
  • 6 - Instead of formal elections a didgeridoo-contest is held - the winner will be the prime-minister
  • 5 - They have only one category of driving license that includes small planes and road trains
  • 4 - Their army is equipped only with boomerangs
  • 3 - The land is completely flat except Ayers rock
  • 2 - Australia is still a colony of convicts
  • 1 - Australia is a separate continent because they have no real friends

I thought all Australians wore hats with corks hanging off them, but as it wasn't on the list, it must be true!
