Default Re: Things Are Getting Curiouser And Curiouser Down Under

Oh the international language!

Yes "Shank" in a lovely U.S prison is indeed "Shank" in a lovely Australian one.

You see...we are destined to fight as one.

Have a 'giz' at the movie "Chopper". It launched Eric Bana (Hulk fame) on the international stage.

Bana is actually a fine character actor. The movie gives a good view of the Australian underworld in the 70's and 80's.

Americans love their founding fathers. We love our founding criminals.

Mark Brandon "Chopper" Reid is our favourite crim and lariken. Perhaps second only to Ned Kelly.

Why a people should look up to criminals I do not know.

It's certainly a part of the Australian character which I'm not so sure is to be proud of.
