The questions below about Australia are from potential visitors.

 

They were posted on an Australian Tourism Website and the answers are the actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have a sense of humor. I thought these were hilarious, and that Denizens from "down under" would especially appreciate them!

No, I believe that they go directly to the fifth from the third. I helps to confuse the drunk people looking for Roos on the street, and thus keeps traffic clogs to a minimum while the non poisonous snakes are at a minimum due to the Drop Bears dropping on them after they come back from hitting stark naked people leaving the Hippo Races and Vienna Boys Choir, that they paid for from the ATM machines that were translated from French by some woman who is frustrated because her boy friend left her in 1969 at Christmas after she went to some all male bar wearing high heels, drinking milk and eating Roo with no utensils because they were lost in the North - no sorry the South - by a guy scared to death by a train while walking on the railroad tracks because he was not able to hear the God Damned train due to the wind...

 

Hell, you know what I mean!

Great laugh - thanks for that. I guess most visitors have little idea re Auz.

Take the following link:

 

http://www.ski.com.au/snowcams/hotham3.html

 

Great snow season, just dumped almost a metre (not quite as massive as other parts of the World, but cold, snowy and potentially furry!)

 

I guess being in Auz allows the tourism guys to partly sell the place, but the daft questions mean daft visitors they don't want!

White Fox, you forgot that the guy--I think he'd of been a Swede--walking the railroad tracks was running dehydrated because he didn't pack enough water. That means that at a crucial moment he wasn't able to make water and the drop bear got him.

 

So now can you really take the Sydney Opera House out sailing? Watch out, Linda! Green skipper at the helm!
