Happy Birthday Oz!Wishing all Australians a festive day! For reasons unexplained, I always thought Oz day was January 1st [could be NZ's education system: dunno bugger all but my self-esteem's sky high]. Whatever. Cheers Ozzies, wherever you are! Yes, it does seems odd - unpatriotic almost - to wish them well. After all, if there's two things we don't like, it's Ozzies and Aucklanders (and poms, and the french, and... well, foreigners in general, actually). But fret not, it's only one day a year... there's always 364 others to revile them - plus a bonus in leap years.
Anyhow, this most definitely isn't an Ozzy-bashing post. Especially not on such a significant calendar date. Enjoy a nice anniversary, neighbours! God bless all the men and women (and the families of those) serving in the ADF. Thank you for your efforts in the global war on terror, which make NZ's look embarrassing.
Let all kiwis appreciate the Lucky Country. We're fortunate indeed, indebted in fact, as they're the only thing separating us from the world's most populous moozlim country. Our miniscule armed forces could never resist the invading swarms of islamic savages. So thanks all Diggers, for saving our future bacons! We'll gratefully play swooning helpless maiden to your chivalrous knight on horseback. On ya mates! Happy Oz Day! Have a good one, and a cold one for me!
