    Aussies wearing Sandals at the Olympics.



    Wearing sandals. No formal shoes to wear?

    Those are the kiwis, can't you see the bearskin? He killed it with his bare hands -- maybe they don't have shoes.

    Ozzies, of course, aren't even allowed into a bar without proper shoes, long pants, a button down shirt and a bow tie and top hat. Odd dress code for patrons who will, inevitably end up drinking to oblivion, vomiting down the front of their natty duds, getting into a fistfight and bleeding all over their impeccably dressed self.

    But for those first few minutes, they sure look nice.

    Not much difference between the flags. A few stars I think -- and the shapes of the stars.

    At least the Poms have the decency to wear socks with their sandals.

    Ausisie flag has white stars and 6 of them and 7 pointed.

    Kiwi has 4 and they're red with a white out line and 5 pointed.

    But they both still proudly display our nations flag.

    The Kiwis copied the Aussie flag, but as usual they fucked it up a bit.

    Armani, I think. Pearl buttons, hand stiched by the world's best tailors. Real shoes. All designed to coordinate with the forthcoming gold medals that will complete the outfit.

    I hope they stitch a secret little pocket into their shell suits to hide all their dope.

    Not a bearskin Tex, in fact it a cloak made from kiwi feathers "Kahu kiwi", No bears in New Zealand or Australia for that matter, while often referred to as a koala bear the Koala is a marsupial. You may have heard the saying "happy as a dog with two dicks" well the luicky old Koala has two dicks, as it has an bifurcated Penis and Mrs Koala has two twats to put his two dicks into, double the fun, no wonder Koala sleep all day because they are worn out with all the double shafting.

    Anyway back to the original point, the Kiwi feather cloak was highly prized by the local indigenous people "Maori", it implies great status because of its rarity because of the difficulty in plucking a Kiwi, mild mannered normally they are a bit of a handful when plucked.
    Now days of course the local Maori obtain their great status from owning and operating two or more crack laboratories and driving a large V8 powered vehicle, so that sadly the wearing of the Kiwi cloak is left to tossers who cannot afford proper shoes.

    To be fair sabang they come to compete and hopefully win medals.

    What were you expecting that they all turn up looking like premier league footballer hotshots. There is also a minor recession in Australia at the moment and to deck out them all in Gucci suits would of been inappropriate IMO.

    The only thing I can fault is the colour.

    Green and Gold is worn by all of our sporting teams- cricket, rugby, soccer, hockey & so on. Oz has a proud sporting tradition- so why should they change it for the 2008 Olympics. Ashamed of wearing the green and gold?

    Apart from which, natty Blazers which our Olympians could be proud of in years to come would be far more appropriate than those cheap, 'orrible looking jackets. Akubra style hats rather than cheap looking Yachtie caps too.

    Wrong.
