Australia the lucky country, the land of the 4 day weekend (5 if you’re in the construction union) so what do have to hate about Australia you ask.

Nothing well ok lots of things but I wont go into them as much, this is instead 4 reasons (one for every day off I get) I love this country.

1 It’s Freaking Huge,

Seriously how many other country’s are big enough to have a 30C day and snow in different parts of the country on the same day , or heat waves and bush fires and massive floods, as well as the most remote city in the world, where driving from one side to the other will likely kill you if you try it nonstop going north/south or east/west. australia is huge we have everything and if you stay out of the city’s there’s no one around to ruin it for you.

2 Sport,

We are obsessed with it a country with our population should be fighting Poland for 49th place at the Olympics instead we make the top 5-10 every 4 years despite the fact that football(AFL or either Rugby code) netball and cricket our 5 biggest sports don’t feature, not to mention that at surfing, motor racing, bmx ect (name an extreme sport) and even lawn bowls we dominate or at least hold our own, this is despite being one of the fattest country’s in the world. to put this in perspective we should be the kid that despite being 5ft still weighs 120kg and can’t run instead we’re james hird 6’3” and stupidly athletic.

3 We hate everything but not enough to do anything about it,

We do, everything is horrible from boat people invading to global warming, dodgy government and the economy. but does it matter? of course not we are too laid back to care so long as we have sport to watch and a beer in our hand it’s all good mate, she’ll be right. and it’s not because we are lazy or apathetic, it’s because we are lucky and we know it we know it’s not that bad that all the rubbish we put up with someone elsewhere would kill to have. because were the lucky country.

4 Everything wants to kill you.

from the sun to the plants and every animal even the apparently cuddly koala will disembowel you given a chance, killer spiders and snakes roam our city’s, sharks and poisonous fish the ocean huge crocks the rivers, and yet it’s all safe and beautiful.


and thats my view of the lucky country. so go listen to the jjj hotest 100
