The "cunning little desiccated prick" can test this

More along the theme of keeping a sense of humour over Howard's citizenship test (humour being a lot healthier than blowing a gasket over it… until we find a more effective response), I found Nabakov's contribution at Lavartus Prodeo hilarious – but so true, as the best satire is. Nabakov's a regular commenter at a number of blogs, including LP. He has come up with a brilliant multiple choice test, the best of which (for me) are:

The supreme political leader of Australia is generally referred to in public as:
a) the Exalted Jewel in the Navel of the Great Elephant who is a River to his People;
b) that cunning little desiccated prick;
c) the Prime Minister; or
d) who cares? They’re all right conniving ratbags once they get to Canberra

Australia’s national animal is:
a) the dull but surprisingly tasty kangaroo;
b) the wombat, which eats roots and leaves;
c) the grumpy, sleepy, weak-bladdered, stoned and frequently psychotic koala; or
d) the larger often spotted hoon

If you want to how with laughter, instead of wail in despair, read the rest of it. Thanks to Phil for recommending it on VVB.

Hey thanks for the shout-out, bro (as I believe it is put, I'd have to check with the offspring).

Also as I now know who you are! ('splains everything, pretty much).

WRT Howard, humour, satire, etc, if I didn't laugh I'd cry.

Hey Phil, if I didn't get reminded to laugh – by the likes of Nabakov or you – I'd probably go nuts.

WRT explanations: what you see is what you get…
