But hey, free Christmas trees!

They do, but Christmas is on June 25 because of the reversed seasons and all that in the Southern Hemisphere. And water goes down the drain counterclockwise in Austria.

Austria is also where Helen Keller hid from the Nazis.

We do, but with Charlie Brown's Christmas tree and a mid-afternoon meal with luncheon meat.

I had a co-worker from Brazil who once remarked that his first Christmas in the US was a real revelation, because all of the winter-based Christmas imagery that he'd grown up with suddenly all made sense.

is it considered funny to mix up Australia and Austria? I just find it retarded and I am never fully sure if the mix up is intentional or the poster is really mentally only able to process 3-5 different countries.

Lights also wrap around the tree in the opposite direction down there too.
 
2012-11-26 02:24:22 PM
And since I am swiss and I had countless discussions with americans where they ask me "all about sweden" ... I have to believe it's not intentional and just sad...
That said, I've visited sweden and know a bit about it... but after the second reminder that I am swiss and not swedish - I just give up.

The very first thing I did when I got to Australia was flush a toilet to see if the reverse swirl thing was true. It made for a very disappointing start to my trip.

This. Could we get a little less low-brow around Fark? I miss the good ole' days of Fark where getting the joke actually took some inside knowledge; or, at very least, a 9th grade vocabulary.

You know, I'm tempted to start up Aussie Brand Ceramics[tm] and make a line of toilets with the jets mounted in reverse.

You missed Romansh, the coolest/most obscure of all Swiss languages. It's descended from Vulgar Latin, so it's got that going for it.

Worthless without pictures.
Even the German articles only had stockphotos.

You have to use a toilet made in Austria for that to work.

This is actually funny, because it's being flooded by "real german", but I don't live there anymore, not since 10 years or so. Germans only need around 2-3 months to be able to understand the dialect properly.

That's where they had that nasty Foxconn thing with Hewlett Packard.
I think they were using Central American child slaves to make Air Conditioners to be shipped to Finland where Tomji is from. It's how they put the holes in the cheese. I saw it once on Mythbusters.

To be fair, in Europe everyone speaks SOME German. You know...just in case.
