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.
