Horrible Australians

Telepathic Ed on war:
During WW II there were a Million American Servicemen in East Australia and tensions Arose between the American and Australian Servicemen. The Australians then and now are Infamous for their Horrible Personalities, not all are like this but Most Are. By the end of the Day You've been Insulted Several Times. The American Servicement were Payed Much more than the Australians and the Australians Resented This. The Girls found the American Servicemen to be Much More Attractive with their Outgoing Personalites and Pretty Accents and Happy to Spend their Money on a Good Time. The Australian Girls Regarded the Australian Servicemen as the Same Dour Joe Blokes they had Unfortunately Become Used to. The Australians's Anger over the Americans Ability to get the Girls and their Freespending Ways came to a Head on November 26 and November 27, 1942 when thousands of American and Ausralians Servicement Street-Fought each other for these 2 Days with Hundreds of Injuries many of them Serious and with 1 Australian being Killed. The American who killed him stood Court Martial for Manslaughter but was Acquited for Self-Defense. This was Called "the Battle of Brisbane," and News Accounts were kept from the American Public (We're Fighting our own Allies?).
Do I spy a D&D joke right after this bit?

and Pretty Accents

The aesthetic advantage of the American accent over the Australian has been corroborated by an important study just issued by Duke University.*

*Thanks to the right-wing Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Spanish-language media are now calling the Duke hook-up report an actual undergraduate thesis.

What?

Is his thesis that it's somehow difficult to find yourself in a fight with Strines?

'Cause they've always seemed to me to be more than willing to dance...

Substance McGravitas said...

I think his thesis is that the Australians were driven to it because Americans are so great.

mikey said...

But if it hadn't have been THAT, it would have been because it's Thursday. Or because they served potatoes for lunch.

Or because of a bicycle...

Well, perhaps the aggressors were OVER 50% BICYCLE, thus letting the Australians off the hook.

Smut Clyde said...

A similar pitched battle took place in NZ, on the Auckland Wharves. Some would say* that the aggressors in that event were over 50% sheep.

* For values of "some would say" that include tigris.
