Hee, they're playing that silly song again, where's they've put the words of Advance Australia Fair to Working Class Man. Only in Australia - giggle. Americans are so damn serious, they'd never set the words of their national anthem to a rather ludicrous 80s pop song. Typical Australians, we can only sing the first verse of ours, and then only to the tune of Gilligans Island (and it works, too, ditto the Beverly HillBillies). We just don't take ourselves at all seriously. And I like that. I think it's sweet and endearing. We're so eager to please and silly. We're still a big puppy of a country.
