MycroftHolmes: L.D. Ablo: 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.

/watch out for the drop bears

You and subby is stupid. Austrian is the capital of Texas, not down under

I really don't know why I'm loving this so much.

Tomji: 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.

Its this season's "your mom" joke

/I hear the Spring line willl feature an exciting innovation called a "knock-knock joke"

Most Austrians celebrate Christmas on their famous beaches with a traditional meal of bratwurst and beer.

Dadbart: Hate to disappoint, But Austria is not down under, Australia is. Austria is in Europe, the headquarters of many things unpleasant in history.

Shirley, you can't be serious!

What a mess. But hey, it's winter, so I bet they'll just Leave them Piled up on the ground fir a while.

pacochu: Lights also wrap around the tree in the opposite direction down there too.

The worst part of travelling there is getting used to flicking the switch up (to them it's down) to turn the lights off.

Mock26: If Austria is upside down and on the bottom of the world then how do things stay on the ground?

It's like reverse gravity. Remember how the air gets thinner the higher you go above sea level? Well, it gets denser the farther south you go too. So, way down in Austria, the air just pushes them up to ground level.

Read somewhere that the tradition of keeping a Christmas tree INSIDE the house, instead of outside, became popularized by the Austrians. Apparently, Austrian families started to bring their trees inside to protect them from the Koala bears, who can devour a Christmas tree in no time flat.

This practice eventually spread to other regions that celebrate Christmas, and most of us now keep a tree inside the home instead of outside, all thanks to Austrians and the Koala Bear.

They do, but Santa says Ha Ha HA because Ho Ho Ho was beamed to be sexually offensive to women.
Not kidding.

Came here to comment about how no one would fall for that old tagline gag, but it seems that Fark commenters are getting dumb and dumber

Highroller48: Deep Contact: had98c: pacochu: Lights also wrap around the tree in the opposite direction down there too.

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.

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

I love the episode where Stewie got "booted" for insulting the Austrians about that.

No, that was Urkel.

Highroller48: The Voice of Doom: Worthless without pictures.
Even the German articles only had stockphotos.

Hey, they're just trying to pass along info. They weren't expecting the Portugese Inquisition, you know...

I was but they snuck in the back door. Ya turn yer back for one minute and everything goes in the crapper.

My favorite music comes from Austria. I've always enjoyed relaxing to Strauss' "Waltz of Matilda". I think Freud once lobbied to make it the national anthem.
