Re: I have a newfound respect for all you Aussies...
I understand the platypusses (platypi?) are poisonous. What a freak of nature that thing is. It has spurs on the insides of it's thighs that supposedly injects poison, which is supposed to be painful as hell... You got Great Whites swimming near your beaches...You got White Greas, keeping temperature records for 19 years....(sorry couldn't resist)
Now go fetch your shine box like a good little Wumpus.
