Excuse me! Tiny? In landmass, Australia equals mainland USA.
Furthermore! Not only is it an island... it is also a continent.
Which reminds me! If the USA is stuck in between Canada and Mexico, does that make it incontinent?
Oh, and Sean, don't worry about our dangerous creatures. Chances are, you'd never see one.
But then, that's how a lot of tourists end up on the menu.
One mans plague is another mans Home Defense.
Yeah, and I resent foreigners criticising our choice of pets. Like they know the troubles we have keeping alive pets imported from overseas. They don't acclimatise too well, so naturally we turn to the native fauna for our 4, 6, 8-legged companions.
The little buggers appear to be doing their job.
Not too well, it seems... we still get 1000's of tourist turning up here every day. I suppose the big bonus to that is that it helps keep the pet food bills down.
They are happy because one of their hobbies is shark fishing. I'm sure a friendy and happy Australian would be willing to give you a demo...
Unfortunately, that doesn't work anymore. After several game fishing boat collisions, tourists are now required to wear seat belts and they fall overboard not nearly as often.
