It's missing a sculptural depiction of petty thieves and a boomerang.

and binge drinking! that's really better expressed as performance art, though.

It's also missing Nick, my Australian friend.

no, no, he's in there. it's just a bad cameraphone picture.

Oh, see, I thought that guy was a Prisoner. The Aussie version of a pilgrim and all.

Sorry to be boring, it's actually the Australian Coat of Arms put into sculpture format. As long as the bronzed corpse of Steve Erwin never makes an appearance I'll know that all is still well in the Land Down Under. Now if only we could get some GOOD Australian beer imported!

Hey wait, didn't they ban the word "mate"? Can we have it?

well, if it's the official coat of arms, so much the better. that just adds to their essential kangaroocentric character.

Ah, I hadn't heard that. But apparently it's been overturned. I guess we can't have it afterall :(

I think America's mascot should be a remarkably fat person panting up to the counter of a McDonald's with a 64 oz. travel cup of Coke they bought at a different store, complaining about the price of a refill and making not even a token attempt to clean up the big mess they leave behind.
