Chickens.

You're unaware of Australian slang, because Australia doesn't exist.

Emus are actually native to a small island east of Nauru.

What if Australia is real, and the rest of the world is an Australian hallucination?

How many flat earthers are there in the United States? I've never heard of one in my entire life, but I live in Germany.

I have it on the authority of one with a dizzying intellect that the OP is true:

Vizzini: "Not remotely! Because iocane comes from Australia, as everyone knows! And Australia is entirely peopled with criminals. And criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you."

I only hope our new PM, Bill Shorten, does a good job.
