Why is everything from Australia, ridiculously hard to kill and deadly?
User avatar #129 to #76 - kookiefrankus (11/14/2012) [-]
Most of our deadly **** are ankle biters and we wear shorts and thongs/sandles

..... the what?
User avatar #95 to #94 - sonofamotherduck (11/14/2012) [-]
Lebanese. Lebo is what we call them. They're ******* dangerous, and loud.
User avatar #97 to #95 - DiabloStrawhat (11/14/2012) [-]
Why are Lebanese people in Australia?
User avatar #98 to #97 - sonofamotherduck (11/14/2012) [-]
I really, really don't know, and I hate it.
User avatar #100 to #98 - DiabloStrawhat (11/14/2012) [-]
Why exactly? Are they like violent wildmen of the outback?
User avatar #101 to #100 - sonofamotherduck (11/14/2012) [-]
They're not in the outback, because apparently living in a desert of a country themselves, they can't live in the country/ outback part of Australia. They just live on the east coast. Unfortunately for me, I also live on the east coast. So many douchebags, it's like our version of Jersey Shore.
User avatar #103 to #101 - DiabloStrawhat (11/14/2012) [-]
Ahhh, now I understand completely. That's rough.
User avatar #104 to #103 - sonofamotherduck (11/14/2012) [-]
It's ******* brutal! Everyone looks so fake, and then they yell swag everywhere. You can sometimes hear them at night...
#105 to #104 - DiabloStrawhat (11/14/2012) [-]
I'm sorry to hear that, friend. Here, take my MuscleBird. You need its muscled defenses more than I do.

I shall use this creature of mass destruction wisely, and only use it for good, not for evil. Unless you consider genocide for being a different race bad, then oh well.

Trust me, there is. i almost got killed by a exploding koala
User avatar #91 to #88 - Schwarzenegger (11/14/2012) [-]
...don't forget drop-bears....
User avatar #92 to #91 - wealthy (11/14/2012) [-]
are you ******* kidding me? a Drop Bear is a Koala.

Go learn you robo........oh ****
User avatar #99 to #92 - DiabloStrawhat (11/14/2012) [-]
A drop bear is no bear, it's a godless killing machine.
User avatar #131 to #91 - kookiefrankus (11/14/2012) [-]
Thanks for the nightmares

"The machine-gunners' dreams of point blank fire into serried masses of Emus were soon dissipated. The Emu command had evidently ordered guerrilla tactics, and its unwieldy army soon split up into innumerable small units that made use of the military equipment uneconomic. A crestfallen field force therefore withdrew from the combat area after about a month." - Dominic Serventy

MFW I looked it up and confirmed it's real... lol Australia
#28 to #20 - neverposting (11/14/2012) [-]
I love how on the article there is an 'aftermath' section, like there were long term harsh economic repercussions resulting from the tradgedy of the days when the emu rebelled against their masters...
User avatar #5 - tankeruber (11/13/2012) [-]
The losses were: Dignity and Pride.

What the **** did you just ******* say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Emu Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Western Australia crops, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in emu warfare and I’m the top crop consumer in the entire emu forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the **** out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my ******* words. You think you can get away with saying that **** to me over the Internet? Think again, ****** . As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across Australia and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, wheat. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re ******* dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can eat you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare beak. Not only am I extensively trained in unwinged combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Australian Emu Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little **** . If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your ******* tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will **** fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re ******* dead, kiddo.

What the bollocks did you just bloody say about me, you little scoundrel? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in Oxford, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on negroes, and I have over 300 confirmed cups of tea. I am trained in traditional warfare and I'm the top gentlemen in the entire English armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another bugger. I will wipe you out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my words. You think you can get away with saying that blasphemous trash to me over the Fancy wireless communication system? Think again, peasant. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Earl Grey tea sellers across England and your bad breath is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, you nimcompoop. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're dead, nincompoop. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can charm you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare mustache. Not only am I extensively trained in mustache charming, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the English Navy and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable bottom off the face of this Island, you little bastard. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your bloody tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn bastard. I will excrete fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're dead, negro.

Now THATS how you use copy pasta

No, the Aussies did have casualties.

Two machine guns and their dignity.
User avatar #27 to #15 - aldheim (11/14/2012) [-]
Australians don't have dignity.
User avatar #29 to #27 - multimedia (11/14/2012) [-]
They don't need it. Their mounts are level 50 giant spiders.
#136 to #27 - thumbsalad (11/14/2012) [-]
It's the 21st century. Nobody has dignity.
#90 - ofwgbagelbites (11/14/2012) [-]
2. ******* . Machine. Guns.

God I ******* had a spastic laughter fit when I imagined 20,000 emus squawking and running head first at two guys streaming wave after wave of bullets at them.

Pic related, it's the first emu's face when one of the guy bumps into it.

A slightly less publicized war.

That's why they teach us not to **** with emus.

I guess we are going to need a Emunization.
User avatar #60 - Tvfreek (11/14/2012) [-]
I read the whole wiki page, the Emus won and the Australians surrendered twice.

And this is still an ongoing problem.
User avatar #84 to #60 - SubjectThree (11/14/2012) [-]
Emus are actually pretty tough birds. They can shrug off rounds that would kill a man, including the "poison" 5.56 round.
User avatar #61 to #60 - antisocialtwilight (11/14/2012) [-]
Of course it's still an ongoing problem; the glorious emu regime won't just go away.
User avatar #62 to #61 - Tvfreek (11/14/2012) [-]
Why would they leave? They have glorious guerrilla tactics.
User avatar #64 to #62 - antisocialtwilight (11/14/2012) [-]
And such resilience; the only reason there are any Australians left is because they convinced the Sting Rays that, in exchange for Steve Irwin's life, which he sacrificed, they would keep the emu naval forces at bay.

But at what cost?!
User avatar #66 to #64 - Tvfreek (11/14/2012) [-]
At but the cost of their DIGNITY!!!
#68 to #64 - giustobuffo (11/14/2012) [-]
You took a gamble talking about Irwin like that on the internet. It paid off. Thumb for you.

"If we had a military division with the bullet-carrying capacity of these birds it would face any army in the world...They can face machine guns with the invulnerability of tanks. They are like Zulus whom even dum-dum bullets could not stop."
Damn, the emus really put up a fight.
#50 - stallwallwriter (11/14/2012) [-]
This made me laugh, because it involved killing emus.

I ******* hate emus.
User avatar #2 - iwillforget (11/13/2012) [-]
how did the emu's claim victory with such great losses
User avatar #24 to #2 - ningyoaijin (11/14/2012) [-]
It was a Pyrrhic victory...
User avatar #6 to #2 - biomedic (11/13/2012) [-]
It was supposed to flush the emus out of a farmland area in western australia, but the population just kept coming back after being slaughtered, so the emus won.
#22 - Schwarzenegger (11/14/2012) [-]
LOOOOOOOOOOOL
#16 - pureevil (11/14/2012) [-]
Damn Emus.
Damn Emus.
