Australian Festival

Since I'm always on the look-out for things that might amuse my readers, let me take this moment to direct you here, to the annual Nashville Australian Festival. Now, I have perused the website and all I can figure is that this is an excuse to charge me $5 to watch cricket. And, Australia, I'm sorry, but I'm not going to pay $5 to watch cricket. Send me a sport where men stick their fingers up each other's asses and I might pay $5 to see that, but cricket, no thanks. Anyway, I'm happy to participate in free Australian activities, like pondering Keith Urban's butt or wondering why Nicole Kidman doesn't see how much prettier she was ten pounds and three botox treatments ago...

As one of your Australian readers, I can safely say I would pay $5 to not watch cricket. Even if I was in Nashville.
I don't like Vegemite either. Or Keith Urban (he sings with an American accent, urgh, sorry, but I can't stand to hear Australians putting on the Texan Twang or whatever it is...)

I have to say, I'm still confused about what an "Australian Festival" might encompass. Watching sports and looking at animals? I'm trying to imagine what having a "United States Festival" in Australia might be like, for that matter.

When you have huge places with a lot of different subcultures, trying to have a festival that gives anyone a flavor of the country would be difficult, I think.

If this is the thing that is held in the park out front from West End Middle, save your money.

We stopped by one year to see what it was.

I don't remember everything it entailed, but I do remember a bunch of australian fetishists standing around and watching people play rugby. And drinking Foster's.

WHoooaa, way to push the envelope of cultural celebration, dudes!

Who all wants to go?
I spoke with Joey(Tv On The Fritz) and we're going to go. So, B, (and any other freaks) you coming with?

FYI...Keith Urban is dating Nichole Kidman.
