Happy Australia Day!
Sparing no expense, today this blog is celebrating the National Day of Australia!
This year, there's even more reason to celebrate because Australia has just recently recognized the right to same-sex marriage -- yay!
One insufficiently appreciated fact about Australia is that it is a world leader in engine, vehicle and fuel technology --
Of course, we all know about the weird and wonderful animals that are found only Down Under!
How did they get there?
There's the platypus, of course. It's a little-known fact that Canada's national symbol had a hand (or some other body part) in its creation. You're welcome, our Commonwealth cousins!
And Australia is just full of crocs, we all know that!
Kangaroos are, of course, everywhere too!
They cause mayhem on the roads. Kind of like moose in Canada.
And who doesn't love those cute 'n adorable koala bears?
Uh-oh, another misconception shattered?
Oh no, could koalas be co-opted for the purpose of evil?
Luckily, getting koalas to actually do anything might be a bit of a problem. Duuuuuude!
Perpetually smashed? Let's all move to Australia and join them!
