Australian News Roundup

New Zealanders, rejoice. I'm going to make fun of Australia.

If it weren't the BBC, I'd just assume the line "the woman apparently became the object of the male camel's desire" was a joke. A woman in Mitchell, Queensland who was given a camel as a 60th birthday present died when the camel tried to mate with her. The camel was probably just frustrated because its efforts to mate with the family goat had failed on a "number of occasions."

You should see their drunk driving PSAs. The New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority wants to make speeding seem uncool among young male drivers by suggesting that men speed as a way to compensate for other shortcomings. So these ads spell it out. Fast car = Well, figure it out.

From Nitro at Rest to Nitro Redux. NBC is bringing back the 1990s classic American Gladiators. This has nothing to do with Australia, unless Thunder and Blaze were Australian. I'm not saying they were, just that they might've been.

Catherine the Great, move over. For the rest of womankind, move out of the way for heaven's sake.

I turn 60 in 8 1/2 year. I am going to insist on kinky but safe in the present department.
