35 Reasons to Avoid Australia

Australia is the planet’s sixth largest country. It’s home to kangaroos, cuddly koala bears and Wolverine. What’s not to love?

Well, as it turns out there are 35 flamin’ good reasons to avoid this country at all costs. Here they are:

Any country whose nickname is “down under” cannot take itself seriously, can it? Surely that phrase should only be used in the confines of a medical exam room.

They may claim to speak English but really, they don’t

Ever heard the phrase “fair dinkum” (fair play)? What about “flat out like a lizard drinking” (really busy)? Us either! Definitely not English.

Their choices of clothing are questionable

Fashion also seems to have gotten away from Australia. Since when did everyday fashion involve hanging corks from your hat?
