alternative Aussie citizenship test

thanks so very much to Pavlov’s Cat for directing me to this little gem from The Age newspaper in Melbourne.

An alternate Aussie citizenship test – “for a country who’s citizens pride themselves on not knowing the words to the national anthem.” Brilliant! :)

And the favourite question of them all, in the Language section:-

Explain the following passage: “In the arvo last Chrissy the relos rocked up for a barbie, some bevvies and a few snags. After a bit of a Bex and a lie down we opened the pressies, scoffed all the chockies, bickies and lollies. Then we drained a few tinnies and Mum did her block after Dad and Steve had a barney and a bit of biffo.”

Second favourite question:-I’ve had a gutful and I can’t be fagged. Discuss.

just brilliant :) And sure to weed out all those achievers that we definitely don’t want in our country! ;)
