Toast pinchers you say? I always thought the Aussies were pulling the "feathers" over our eyes with that so-called vegemite scam. ("Smells awful & leaves horrible stains", if that doesn't sound like vegemite, I don't know what does.)

The emus had to leave, but the pink elephants could all stay.

"Smelly and create giant stains"?

Couldn't that be said of your average Aussie male?

Has anyone told Doug ?

The anti-emu discrimination continues despite the Australians losing a war to the Emus in 1932.

Queen Victoria actually started this when whe said "We are not Emus'd"

Kevin and Carol were smart enough not to get run over like their siblings were, but they have not been house trained.

"Smelly and create giant stains" could, I daresay, apply to any number of scat.

Clearly unfair, given that the pubs other patrons do the same thing without being banned.

"We put the sign up, but we're not quite sure whether they're able to read or not," hotel co-owner Gerry Gimblett says in an interview with 10 News First Queensland. "So, we've had to put a bar across there, as well." https://news.google.com/articles/CAIiED9ji24OObU3gEvzSyadqtsqFggEKg4IACoGCAow9vBNMK3UCDCvpUk?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen
