    sorry, had to share this with you but it puts some questions here into perspective :p

    [The questions below about Australia, are from potential visitors. They
    were posted on an Australian Tourism Website and the answers are the
    actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have a sense of
    humour?]

    Q: how do the plants grow? (UK).
    A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them
    die.

    Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? (USA)
    A: Depends how much you've been drinking.

    Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney - can I follow the railroad tracks?
    (Sweden)
    A: Sure, it's only three thousand miles - take lots of water.

    Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Australia? (Sweden)
    A: So it's true what they say about Swedes.

    Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in Australia? Can you send me a list
    of them in Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville and Hervey Bay? (UK)
    A: What did your last slave die of?

    Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Australia? (USA)
    A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe.
    Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the Pacific which does
    not... oh forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in
    Kings Cross. Come naked.

    Q: Which direction is North in Australia? (USA)
    A: Face south and then turn 180 degrees. Contact us when you get here and
    we'll send the rest of the directions.

    Q: Can I bring cutlery into Australia? (UK)
    A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.

    Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? (USA)
    A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which
    is... oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every Tuesday night
    in Kings Cross, straight after the hippo races. Come naked.

    Q: Can I wear high heels in Australia? (UK)
    A: You are a British politician, right?

    Q: Are there supermarkets in Sydney and is milk available all year round?
    (Germany)
    A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of vegan hunter/gatherers. Milk is
    illegal.

    Q: Please send a list of all doctors in Australia who can dispense
    rattlesnake serum. (USA)
    A: Rattlesnakes live in A-meri-ca which is where YOU come from. All
    Australian snakes are perfectly harmless, can be safely handled and make
    good pets.

    Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Australia, but I forget its
    name. It's a kind of bear and lives in trees (USA)
    A: It's called a Drop Bear. They are so called because they drop out of
    Gum trees and eat the brains of anyone walking underneath them. You can
    scare them off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out
    walking.

    Q: Do you have perfume in Australia? (France)
    A: No, WE don't stink.

    Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you
    tell me where I can sell it in Australia? (USA)
    A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.

    Q: Can you tell me the regions in Tasmania where the female population is
    smaller than the male population? (Italy)
    A: Yes, gay nightclubs.

    Q: Do you celebrate Christmas in Australia? (France)
    A: Only at Christmas.

    Q: I was in Australia in 1969 on R+R, and I want to contact the girl I
    dated while I was staying in Kings Cross. Can you help? (USA)
    A: Yes, and you will still have to pay her by the hour.

    Q: Will I be able to speak English most places I go? (USA)
    A: Yes, but you'll have to learn it first.

    I think the general thinking about Swedes is they are nature lovers - you know the whole nudist camps, naked saunas and rolling in snow type thing :D

    Remember 2 years ago when a kangaroo escaped from a zoo somewhere in Austria and was jumping all over an autobahn? :D

    ROFL :D :D :D :D

    Yeah, sometimes you just wonder whether some people think geography has got something to do with "George".... :rolleyes:

    What makes me wonder the most, is the fact that the questions do not come from USA only but other parts as well! *sighs* :eek: :D
