Australians

Why would you want to be anything else but Australian?!?! From the
Australian Bureau of Statistics

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.

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.

?.........and finally:

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

YEP! It's great to be Australian!

Do those stats represent Australians only (citizens) or people living/staying/holidaying here when those things occured? :oo1:
I'm proud to be Australian, even if there is some silly people in this country. I bet if you looked at similar style (oddball) stats from other countries you'd see that OZ isn't that bad of a place to live (even with the silly people).

Then why stay in this country? If you're glad you're not Aussie then sod off.
Sorry but I just can't stand people who bag Australia when they live here.
Sorry, I know it was a joke and all but today's just not a good day.. Raw nerve I guess.. :oo1:

whoa... you might wanna take it easy mate cuz kell cops so many kiwi jokes it's not funny, and she's not even a real kiwi. but think about it this way - it's all talk! if it really was better somewhere else, wouldn't they be there? they know the truth, but they are bullshitting themselves.
