    ... form "Ameristralia"

    So far around 5,000 people have signed this. Needs to get 100,000 signatures before May 24. It just makes me laugh - as it won't happen. Sorry to say it makes those people who signed it look more stupid than they are. For something like this to take place - it would need to go to referendum here also.

    I've no idea how big Australia's national debt is, but maybe this is a clever ruse to merge the nations creating a new one that's not an obvious successor state so they don't have to inherit the national debts. ;)

    If they'd called it Australerica, it might have stood a chance. ;)

    Will it get the US universal health care and an end to the ridiculous gun laws the US currently has?

    Damn it was bad enough then John Howard was arsecrawling George W. Bush trying to turn us into the 51st state without people asking for it.

    The official national vehicle better be a Foster's-sponsored Monster Truck being driven by a koala bear going "Yee-HAW" or else I will rebel against this new country with every fiber of my soul.

    Is Carlton Draught okay with you Aussies? I just don't want it to be Bud Light. That stuff's too weak even for grown American AV nerds.

    No theoretical country should ever have that as its national beer.

    yeah it's got a good rep.

    Some of the West End stuff out of South Australian isn't bad (but I'm being parochial there).

    XXXX is for the Queenslanders who can't spell Beer.

    Are Americans willing to start playing rugby and Aussie Rules football? And to be bored to death by cricket?

    I'll spend time learning to speak with an Australian accent*, but only if our countries wed.

    * - one of the sexiest accents in the world.

    Australians say that American beer is like making love on the beach. It's fucking close to water.

    Especially coming from the mouths of hot Aussie women. Oh, and they've got lots of cute animals too.

    Yes, however the term "footy" will have to be deleted from the common language.

    Those carry permits and silly background checks really have to go.
