Australian Myths

There is nothing but  #truth  here.

I’d like to clarify a few things #AboutAustralia  for any international visitors who would like to travel to the geographic backside of the world (meaning, we’re so far away from everything else!):

1. Hardly any Aussies look like, or act like Crocodile Dundee or Steve Irwin - Crikey, what a load of codswallop. Whilst the overly-suntanned look is not common (slip, slop, slap and all that), we all have crocodile teeth necklaces and carry weapons.

2. Most metropolitan areas do not have kangaroos jumping around in the streets - Tish Tosh. We don't have cars, so how else are we supposed to get around town if not on the back of a roo?

3. Australians only drink Fosters beer - You won’t see many cartons of Fosters in the bottle shops located throughout the country. You’re more likely to come across Fosters overseas. That's because we like to play jokes on you all and then keep all the decent beer for when you come over for a visit.

4. Australians have a similar accent to our cousins in New Zealand - say what, cuz? Anyone who seriously thinks that has never gone to the fush and chup shop to buy sux thongs.

5. Neighbours is just Coronoation Street with sunshine - Nonono. Neighbours is just Benny Hill with less music.

6. It’s true that there are harsher prison sentences for failing to declare goods such as fruit or salami, than if you bring in other dodgy substances such as hard drugs - that's true, but only because we prefer to kill our drug mules in Bali.

7. Two weeks is not enough time to ‘see’ Australia - two weeks is more than enough time to see Sydney, however. And we all know, there's worth seeing outside of Sydney.

8. Stealing a loaf of bread was the only action required for English people to score a free boat trip to Australia in the 1790’s - In the 21st century, bringing a loaf of bread into the country is enough cause for deportation due to quarantine laws that are probably stricter than U.S. Homeland Security legislation.

What other myths need to be debunked?
