If the shrinkage continues at its current rate, he'll become an American conservative in time for the 2012 election.

Ah, in Texas this would be an Okie joke.

Is this "Our neighboring state full of idiots" sort of joke common? I'm not really awake yet.

On the contrary. As the Late Prime Minister of New Zealand Robert Muldoon put it "New Zealanders who emigrate to Australia raise the IQ of both countries."

So he must have a couple of years then until he hits the so called progressive stage.

They should write a book about this boy. It can be titled "Fosters for Algernon."

Well put--I was under the impression (both from Aussies and Kiwis) that New Zealand is the Canada to Australia. :D

And technically, if we take this to its extent, isn't he technically turning into someone from Queensland? Which, at least in parts, IS pretty much halfway to being a GOP "conservative"... :D

/for those unfamiliar with Oz politics: When Australians say "Queensland", they mean "The Bible Belt", complete with the usual American stereotypes with the Deep South
//Canadians: Feel free to substitute "Alberta" for the comparison with Queensland

I know what this means!

It's the giant man-eating Blancmanges* from Andromeda.

They mean to win Wimbledon.

Or possibly the Cricket Tests.

Could be Australian Rules Football.

*It's pronounced BLAH manj. Almost like the French. A rare case of the British getting the pronunciation of a foreign word almost right.

I'd no idea that PM Muldoon was an Aussie who'd obviously missed his maths lesson on averages.

Black Sheep was entirely underrated. Bravo my good man, or woman as the case may be. Carry on on then.

In Illinois, this would have been a Kentucky or Wisconsin joke. In upstate New York, Pennsylvania. So, yes.
