Unlike the benign American version, the Australian USB Charger is a deadly foe.  Capable of storing massive amounts of electricity and discharging it at the slightest provocation, the Australian USB charger is to be avoided at all costs.  It usually prefers the quietude of the back of the office desk drawer but will emerge during mating season.  During this time, the males will display what the Aussies call "Gadohshiatitshockedmeagainbruce" or "Chazzshockers" for short.

Knowing their deadliness, Aussie will charge their phones and laptops using an Electric Wallaby.  These unique creature have adapted to the local power grid where the consume electricity and store it in the belly fat.

"What are you thinking was the culprit for her death?"

"USB power supply went bad on her"

"Oh, was there a fire?"

"No, she was strangled"

Oh, sure, modern technology.

We had to rely on metal coat hangers in the old days. Coat hangers, GOP's obsession.

CruJones: Didn't the first time this was submitted have an "ironic" tag too?

Should have used PLUG tag.

And yes. This article is from June 27th. I'm not saying I haven't accidentally submitted old articles that somehow popped up in my current events sites, but they got redlit. Apparently the magic formula is repeat + old.

/meh, a few are bound to slip through, nbd

narrowing down cause of death to one thing in australia must be the most difficult job ever.

Volate should be voltage, of course. No idea how that happened. But a flying power supply would be cool.
