Australians have been stereotyped as a lazy, kangaroo riding, annoying group with crappy accents. NOT TRUE!
But we dont care if people take the piss out of us. People are lining up to come in, that must mean something!
Commonly stereotyped by the likes of The Simpsons, Monty Python and teenagers, as having thick accents, riding around in kangaroos all day and having little to no infrastructure, living out in the desert.
Australia is home to many fine cities, including Melbourne which was allegedly awarded the "world's most livable city" title at some point recently.
Baxter: i say old chap, he's quite the commoner, with his khaki rags.
Bruce: G'day, do you blokes know a good place to eat?
Baxter: ah yes, there's one near here. it's down the street, take a ha'penny and follow the locomotive track.
First off, for God's sake please stop using "down under/Australia" as a term to describe genitalia; please be more creative or just say oral sex rather then an Australian kiss.
Second, it is true that, by rite of origin, that Aborigines are 'true Australians'. They indigenous to Australia, are still to this day being treated unfairly and by God deserve more respect and basic human rights then what they have been given.
Third, with the convicts coming to Australia and that whole Mother-land versus Aborigines, Australia versus Mother-land sha-bang went down, most other countries (mainly America but that is only due to the fact that they only really have fucking Dundee and Irwin as examples of Australians, and Simpsons) assume that the typical Australian is white, rides around in a kangaroo, drinks a lot of beer, is lazy, is dumb, speaks like Steve Irwin (RIP) and is an all round brute. This is so wrong it makes me sick (although I am ashamed to admit that the drinking part is true =w=”)! The point of the modern Australia was to be multi-cultural and a place where your nationality counts for not, you can still call yourself Australian. C'mon people, we Aussies have a fucking song that fucking says: "And from all the lands on Earth we come. We share one dream and sing with one voice. I am, you are, we are Australian." So before anymore people who fancy themselves as “Aussie” then bags out the “chinks” by saying that they’re not Australian or any other nationality for that matter, do a fucking history and ethics lesson you racist fuck.
A true Australian doesn't have to be white, doesn't have to be Aboriginal and doesn't have to act like a stereotype so well embedded in pop culture. To be Australian is more so a fucking way of living rather or ideal then a type of person. We Australians, the people who should be true Australians, should fucking be laid back, come from whatever fucking country they come from, love a good time, and most importantly give everyone a FAIR GO (I know that’s kinda taken from Kevin Rudd who knocked Howard off-thank God!- but he has a point y’know)! It’s just a pity we have racists and bigots here, then again what country doesn’t. So stop with this pommy bashing, New Zealander bashing (we all secretly love you, just not when it comes to sport, you understand XP), America bashing etc!
Australians tend to enjoy having a beer, throwing a party around a barbecue, winning in Cricket and the occasional laugh.
If you meet an Australian, be prepared to be greeted in the nicest possible way and make sure you smile back or they will keep their women to them selves, which really isn't such a bad thing.
#2: Man I wish my countries women were more like the Australians.
#3: I like my men like Australians.
#4: Want another coldie? (An Australian asking their mate if they would like to have another beer)
#5: G'day Mate. (General greeting)
