While England are busy taking an ass-whuppin’ from Australian in the current Ashes, we’d like to take you all back to the day when English batsman Michael Carberry broke his bat in the Ashes some years ago.
Australia – where the English sent their convicts in the 18th century, and where the convicts hunted the aboriginals to near-extinction. It’s a harsh land, full of mystery and wonder. And incest, it seems.

Just take a guess where scientists have found a whole array of new animal species. You’d be thinking somewhere isolated, somewhere big, somewhere uncharted… Yup, it’s Australia.

Have you ever watched the program ‘Border Security: Australia’? If you have, you’ll know that Australian border-control officials are some of the toughest in the business, taking no kak from no one.

Gasping is the only reaction that is appropriate when you watch this CCTV footage. A drunk man ploughed his vehicle through a restaurant in Australia.
This is just hilarious. An Australian couple, who were spotted on Google Street view a few miles before, drove ahead and reappeared on Google street view – simulating ‘bonnet-sex’ as the man swigs on a bottle. You need to see this.
Not too dissimilar to the signs often found at Virgin Active gyms, the Metro Railway in Melbourne has put up signs to discourage ‘wanking’ on the trains. Suggesting, rather, that you wait ’til you get home. Click to see.

Julia Gillard is a pretty awesome prime minister. The Aussie PM has been chased by a violent mob and delivered an epic rant against the opposition leader calling him a misogynist. That was all this year, and now the PM has confirmed the Mayans are right and the world is coming to an end.
Australia’s all-time leading Test batsman and most successful captain, Ricky Ponting, has announced his retirement from international cricket. He had already called a halt on his captaincy of the Test and one-day team in March last year, but continued on as a player.

A warm-up routine by an Australian hurdler has racked up nearly 500 000 views in the past two days on YouTube. Michelle Jenneke was filmed just before her race during the IAAF World Junior Championship last weekend in Barcelona.
The video shows her smiling, hopping up and down, wiggling her hips, and waving to the crowd. Thanks to some super corny music that was added to the footage, along with slowing down some of her movements, we now have a video titled: The Hottest Hurdler Ever”.
But did her enthusiastic preparation help? Hell yes! Check her out – soaring past her competitors, and flying ahead to win first place!

The Scottish are not known to be the “winningest” of teams. So when a victory does come along, especially against a team like Australia, a celebration is in order. Sometimes, though, this gets taken just a little too far. It’s all fun and games until a flanker and a wing bash their heads open.
