The Sharapova thing though Love it Bobito
Mitchell Johnson is an Australian cricketer who hurls the ball at extreme speed, usually in the direction of Englishmen's heads. If you see this individual, do not approach within 22 yards of him, for your own safety.

He is also the possessor of an exceedingly aggressive moustache. I am quite sure that Laura would have no wish to cuddle him.

You've only got yourselves to blame. 200 years ago you made a point of putting everybody fitting this physical description on the first available ship to Australia, then made the mistake of not immediately cutting all ties for the rest of eternity

Re: Tales from the Locker Room - Episode 17, Robson

On a more serious note, while searching for pictures of Tasmanian devils for this episode of TftLR, I discovered that these animals are being decimated by a contagious disease that causes facial tumours. The situation is serious enough that there is a genuine threat of extinction. Fortunately action is being taken, both in researching a vaccine and establishing isolated populations that are free from disease both in the wild and in captive breeding programmes.

These projects are funded both by the government and by public donations. For more information click the links below.

"That's what they told me when I played Sharapova"

I think that's my favourite one yet!

Wait a minute, wait a minute, you do realize your continent is full of penal colonies and you are all descendants of convicts.

Of course.

I'm very proud of our nation's origins. Unlike you Americans, who had to invent all kinds of bunkum about personal liberty, religious freedom and the like as an excuse for getting away from those insufferable poms, my ancestors realized that the simple expedient of stealing a loaf of bread would get the job done just as well.

However, honesty compels me to admit that I haven't yet succeeded in tracing my personal ancestry back to those convict origins. Which may explain why I was never selected to represent my country on the cricket field

Well if we'd cut all ties for eternity then we wouldn't have Laura playing for us would we?
