    Here's a little cheer from the
    Australian Bureau of Statistics:

    *31 Australians have died since 1996 by watering their Christmas tree
    while the fairy lights were plugged in.

    *19 Australians have died in the last 3 years by eating Christmas
    decorations they believed were chocolate.

    *Hospitals reported 4 broken arms last year after cracker pulling
    incidents.

    *101 Australians since 1997 have had to have broken parts of plastic
    toys pulled out of the soles of their feet.

    *18 Australians had serious burns in 1998 trying on a new jumper with a
    lit cigarette in their mouth.

    *A massive 543 Australians were admitted to casualty in the last two
    years after opening bottles of beer with their teeth or eye socket.

    *5 Australians were injured last year in accidents involving out of
    control scalextric cars.

    *3 Australians die each year testing if a 9V battery works on their
    tongue.

    *142 Australians were injured in 1998 by not removing all the pins from
    new shirts.

    *58 Australians are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of
    screwdrivers.

    and finally:

    *8 Australians cracked their skull in 1997 after falling asleep (passing
    out) while throwing up into the toilet.


    YEP! its great to be an Australian!

    It's really sad to think that most Aussies have plastic/fake trees.:oops:

    Don't mean to be (even more) controversial, but I received that in an email from a good friend in New Zealand this morning. (I added the flag myself to complete the effect !)

    I liked it :biggrin

    I have to be very careful what I say here or my status as a whinging pom could be adversely affected :eek:

    Having said that, it is very funny and the Kiwi's get a hard time from the Aussies, so you can't blame them for retaliating now and again :biggrin

    Thanks for the ammo Jak, I will make sure it spreads throughout Australasia :twisted:
