But if it was Irestralia, you do realise, don't you Pip old sausage, that Del would have a Yooman Rite to turn up on your doorstep. :shock:

Nah bouncy all the Oirish live everywhere except Ireland, all the Australians live in London, all the Romanians live in other E.U. countries and all the lazy E.U. member countrymen live on benefits complaining about Romanians taking their jobs!

Toronto marathon runner, 18, died of heart abnormality
Emma van Nostrand from Cape Breton collapsed a few kilometres from finish line.

Her father was in the Boston Marathon and missed the explosion by a couple of minutes.

What a great idea! Then we could start by shipping all the crazy, right-wing nut jobs and Tea Partiers down there to live with their kindred spirits in Mel Gibson's extended family. Since they're all gun nuts, they'll quickly shoot all of the millions of poisonous animals and bugs that live down there, or die of poisoning in the process. In return, we'll give you Aussies the right to emigrate and take over the newly depopulated deep south. Since most of it's infested with alligators and poisonous snakes, you'll all fit right in! :D

wonder if the puerto ricans will feel left out since there has been talk of making them a state for decades but nothing ever comes of it.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! He must have a really ugly eye.
