AusZealand hits the top ten!

Nice to see that Australians, or some Australians at least, have retained a sense of humour over their athletes unexpectedly poor gold medal haul.

Sick of seeing Australia so far down the medal table,  in yesterday’s Sydney Daily Telegraph a new nation appeared called AusZealand, allowing Australia to “co-opt” New Zealand’s gold medals for their own.

Meanwhile, the Sydney Morning Herald has started to refer to the success of something called Team Oceania.

I hope the sense of humour continues.

It’s better than the gnashing of teeth, which is all that can be heard in the Melbourne papers.
