These NZ pics are really cool, literally.
Today is ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand, the day that commemorates the bravery and honour shown by the men who enlisted in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps to fight in the Great War (World War I). It is a day of commemoration, a day to honour the military, a day to remember those who have been lost, and a day in which many take the opportunity to pay respect to the men who died to keep Australia free.
Brave Men, All, and so on this day we say to the memory of those men, their families, and those who survive them, Lest We Forget.
To further remember, enjoy this powerpoint (all files are the same, except for the inclusion of sound.)
The ANZACs deserve our respect. To celebrate the Australian way, have a shot of rum in your coffee this morning.
Another mountain in New Zealand. The photograph was taken by roving reporter 1.618.
New Zealand is clearly going astray under the leadership of Helen Clarke.
Where else in the world can you get charged with “assault with a hedgehog“?
A New Zealand man has been sentenced to 75 hours’ community service for telling police he was being raped by a wombat.
In a later call to police, Cradock retracted the wombat rape complaint, but said the incident had left him with an Australian accent.
Don’t ask, Angus, don’t ask.
UPDATE: NewsCorp’s version – ‘Wombat rape made man speak Strine’
UPDATE #2: So what is it with Antipodeans, substance over-use and wildlife, anyway?
