To all our friends in OZ - hope you had a
HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY!!!​

YOU KNOW YOU'RE AUSTRALIAN WHEN:
You believe that stubbies can either be drunk or worn.
You pronounce Melbourne as 'Mel-bin'.
You believe that the letter 'l' in Australia is optional, and it's perfectly ok to call it 'Straya'.
You think 'Wooloomooloo' is a perfectly reasonable name for a place.
You're secretly proud of our killer wildlife.
You believe it makes perfect sense for a country to have a...... $1 coin thats twice as big as a $2 coin.
You understand that 'Wagga Wagga' can be abbreviated to 'Wagga' but 'Woy Woy' cannot be just 'Woy'.
Beetroot with your hamburger...of course!
You wear ugg boots outside the house.
You believe that the more you shorten someone's name, the more you like them.
You understand that 'excuse me' can sound rude, but 'scuse me' is always polite.
You know what it’s like to swallow a fly, on occasion via your nose.
You know it's not summer until the steering wheel is too hot to handle and a seat belt buckle becomes a pretty good branding iron.
You know how to abbreviate every word, all of which usually end in "o": arvo, convo, garbo, metho, milko, muso, servo, smoko, rego, speedo, righto, etc,....
you know that there is a universal place called 'Woop Woop' located in the middle of nowhere, no matter where you actually are!

All the very best
