I’ve been thinking about this ask for a while and here’s what I’ve come up with;

Australia is pronounced “uh-STRAY-lee-ah” rather than “AWW-stray-lee-ah”
Melbourne is pronounced “MEL-bin”, not “mel-BORN”
Brisbane is “BRIS-bin”, not “BRIS-bay-n”
Canberra is “CAN-brah”, not “can-BER-rah”

"Yeah nah" means no
"Nah yeah" means yes

"Fanny" means vagina, not butt

No-one under the age of 60 actually says “G’day mate”

Pies are full of meat

This is fairy bread and everyone should experience it’s magic at children’s birthday parties

These are thongs

These are biscuits

Male kangaroos obviously don’t have pouches because males DON’T HAVE BABIES

Kangaroos don’t just hang around people’s houses they’re wild anim- Oh wait this is my driveway;

THANK YOU

you people are a circus

Jellyfish Lake in Palau. Apparently the jellies have lost their ability to sting because of lack of predators in the lake and you can swim with them!

That sounds like a horrible lie and if you believe it and jump in the lake then may God have mercy on your soul.

Lustrous.

A man in the grocery store line today approached me and said, “Sir, when I first saw you I was extremely attracted to you, but then I noticed that you are a boy. How… I mean, why do you dress so provocatively?”

I responded, “Well, in today’s world the majority of the straight male race view women as objects, or something that belongs to them. I dress provocatively because it attracts the attention of men in a sexual and OBJECTIVE way. However, when realized that I am actually male, they often become confused, disgusted, upset or all of the above. By inflicting this minor emotional damaged upon the ego of a man raised by twisted societal gender norms, maybe, just maybe the individual will think twice before viewing another woman with an objective attitude and sense of belonging. No woman, belongs to ANYONE. Male or female, the equality of human beings needs to be a priority. It is something worth dressing up for.”

I AM NOT KIDDING. The woman behind me, the female cashier, the old lady bagging groceries and the woman in front of me who was talking on the phone STOPPED, …. and proceeded to gasp and clap. The man shook my hand, told me to have a blessed day and then said, “excuse me ladies, I need to visit my daughter.”

…. I was shaking by the time I walked out of the store.
