The rest of the world January 29, 2007

Posted by casualadventurer in Cultural Understanding.

A mate sent me a funny message where he had overheard his daughter proclaiming the people from
Thailand spoke Taiwanese.

A really common mistake, more common than you would expect.

I have found that many Australians don’t really have much idea of geography outside our own
country, and we are probably better than many nations on that score.

Well there’s this place,
It’s outside of Oztraylia,
Its called the rest of the world,
I think some people live there,
But you don’t want to go there because it’s full of foreigners.
Of course you get some of the people visiting the Oztraylia from the rest of the world they’re called Toororists.
But not from Newz Eeland coz they live in Oztraylia too. You can tell from all the toororists that
the rest of he world is made up of several groups.

Yanks, Poms, Wogs, Huns, Fuzzy Wuzzys, Arabs Japs and Gooks.

Now the Yanks are all like some kind of policeman and they blow up whole countries so that they
can be free.

The Poms haven’t done much of anything for a while, so that when they manage to win a rugby match
their whole country celebrates like they have just won their whole empire back off the Yanks.

The Wogs are our friends because they came to Oztraylia so that we could learn about food that
wasn’t cooked by Poms.

The Huns haven’t invaded anyone for a while so they’ve quietly been buying the entire British
motor industry in revenge for what the Spitfires did to their Messerschmidts.

The Fuzzy Wuzzys are our friends as well, they helped us fight the Japs by carrying our tanks and
machine guns across these really big hills. Now Oztraylian companies can take all of their gold
for free, we don’t even need to worry about toxic waste or anything because it’s all in the rest
of the world.

The Arabs own all of the oil in the world except for the bit in Bass straight that the Wogs use
for cooking our food. But the Yanks are planning to take it all off them real soon, so that they
won’t need to drive economical cars like the rest of us.

The Japs are sort of like other gooks, but they haven’t learnt how to cook their fish yet. The
Japs are famous for making intricately designed engines that make mechanics
want to fall onto their swords and scream BONZAI.

That only leaves the Gooks, We should really respect the Gooks because there is a really really
large number of them, and although they all look the same they speak about a million different
languages. Oztraylia is teaching them how to wrap their food in pastry just
like a good Ozzy meat pie, that way they can use their hands instead of having to pick up a couple
of sticks from the back yard.

Yep we should take the time to learn about the rest of the world so we can watch those sexy movies
from Europe.
