NOPE.

Yes, that is fascinating, I’ve read about it before, but still… NOPE.


#3

Thanks, I needed another reason to never go to Australia.


#4

Is that why the hats all have corks on them?


#5

There is just no reason this should be ok in anyone’s books… and the fact that it has been happening for 10 years and the people have not nuked the valley only indicates that these people have been taken over by spider mites in their brains…


#6

No, the hats with corks are to keep the flies out of your face when you stop to drink at the billabong and wait for your billy to boil.

That inevitably reminds me of my favorite part from America: The Book by The Daily Show Crew:

AAH! AAH! AAAAH!

*runs off and hides under bed for ever*


#9

“Oy! Spidahs! Looky-heah!”


#10

So much NOPE


#11

Yep, looks like we’re gonna have to nuke Australia.


#12

Bret and Jemaine were right. Australia is awful.


#13

Further evidence that the Australian continent exists for the sole purpose of killing humans.

A post about a fascinating migration of generally harmless insectivores, followed by a series of replies about how we could not hope to destroy them thoroughly enough. But sure, it’s Australia that is trying to kill the humans.


#15

Well, um, they started it?


#16

Which makes us even more badass for not just surviving, but thriving there.

Hey, don’t look at me. A spider crawling across the floor of my home inevitably results in the following from my spouse:

“Kill it. Kill it! Kill it quick! KILL IT! KILL IT NOW! NO, DON’T PICK IT UP WITH YOUR HANDS! I DON’T CARE WHAT KIND OF SPIDER IT IS! FINE, TAKE IT OUTSIDE! NO, DON’T BRING IT OVER HERE!!!”


#18

see, THIS is the kind of stuff i’ve grown to expect and appreciate from BB. weird and wonderful…

“suddenly standing babies” is just not really in the same realm.


#19

Wow, you guys are all wimps.

Down round these parts, we call this Tuesday.

You see, someone really is having a worse day than you are.
