It’s not ‘Straya, it’s Australia!  Bloody Convicts!

Your beloved country, dear convicts has an L in it!! Aus-Tra-Lia..

Please use the language properly, or we shall have to take it back..

Now, good day to you!

There’s something vaguely Welsh about the way they can’t say their “L”s properly..

Comment by sportsfreak

Or, they’re just stupid!!

You decide!

The Welsh do have to cough up half their lungs, before they can say an L.

That coat of arms is funny, the way the kangaroo is caressing the shield.

Comment by Miriam

AND we eat both animas. I think we’re the ony country in the word to eat both animas of the nationa embem.

Yum yum! And just so you know, it’s not Austraia… don’t be siy. It’s Straya!

Comment by Miss Field

Mims, it is a touching picture, I grant you that!

Miss Fied, wecome, great post, but if you hover over the coat of arms, you’ see that I incuded the correct phrase embedded in the image!

Comment by republiquecricket

Oh, you’re way ahead of me!

Comment by Miss Field

Did you see that bandana that Sehwag is wearing, with the yellow stripes? Has his head come in fancy dress as a cricket ball?

Comment by Miriam

It’s a silent L, one of those quaint idiosyncrasies of the English language.

Not as funny as Ingalund, though.

It did look that Miriam! The man does have an almost perfectly spherical head, which fits in nicely!

A good point Mentalist. Unfortunately, the cries of En Ger Lund stem from our plebian soccer loving friends.. We’ve tried to keep them out of the grounds, but to no avail!

Damn right. We can’t let the prisoners name their own jail. What would they call Wormwood Scrubs? New South Welsh?


Bring back the “l”!

Comment by The Atheist

Well said The Atheist!
We invented the language, and we will do with it, what we like..

If we want to call it jail we will, but we might like to call it Gaol too.

Now get back to your cells, it’s lights out!

You may have the language but we still hold the cricketing empire. The last empire you had the yanks stole in ’45.

Comment by Brad Griggs

Like the language Brad, we gave it to you, and we’ll bally well take it back!

It’s our ball, and you’re not playing.

Comment by republiquecricket

No we took our empire from the West Indies in ’95, and unless you drag Flinoff’s sorry arse from the pub your’e not much chance of taking anything back.

Comment by Brad Griggs

Egads, the natives are restless today!

I get where you’re coming from Brad, but I reckon it’s Bangladesh for the empire next!

Shower please.

Comment by withmalice

I see what you did there, withmalice!

Said with malice.

Glad you appreciated the wit.

Comment by republiquecricket

Meh… someone’s still upset over the Ashes?

Comment by withmalice

No dear heart, I never get upset by losing to a better side.

Comment by republiquecricket

That’s good… could lead to some absolutely awful tribulations if you did!
