Advance Australia Not-So-Fair

Recent events suggest Australia’s money-back guarantee has expired.

Accordingly, a new map of the formerly lucky country has been issued. [Thanks to readers Marion & Hayden]



  1. It's only weather. Unlike Kiwis, we don't regard a bit of wind and flooding as Armageddon.
    After all, we've had a while to get used to it. ;)
    We can simply pick up our rubbish and dispose of it--you lot elect it to rule over you.

  2. Careful KG when talking about rubbish rulers. I could name a few times the Ozzies have made kiwi-scale mistakes at the ballot box, starting with Fanta Pants, KRudd gets a Special Mention, Keating anyone?

    Granted, nobody quite so blatantly communist and corrupt (apologies for tautology) as Klarkula, but I think I've made my point.

  3. True, GG.:(
    You know, it's only since the advent of mass media that a big has been made of floods and droughts. Third-rate journos have managed to convince people that fairly ordinary weather events are the end of the world and a lot of fools are sucked in by it.
    In the past, people simply endured, rebuilt and got on with their lives.

  4. "big deal" that should be.
