I just shook my head when I read that article. I mean do Americans really think we are like Crocodile Dundee or anyother stereotypical view like that. lol


That's the image Australia chooses to export, so what are people who live a million miles away suppose to believe?

Just like every other tourist who comes to NYC is suprised that there are no gangs running the streets and random murder happens on every block. The fact that NYC is one of the safest big cities in the world for almost a decade doesn't seem to curb that stereotype.


/claps ! yes.gif



id like to add that crocodile dundee was soooooooo long ago - i dont think ppl still have those "expectations" that is ridiculous...


and who ever thought random murder occurs on every block of NYC and or gangs running the streets..............

haha. I say shrimp but now got used to saying prawns. Prawns seems to make more sense. Try to think of īJumbo Shrimpī and tell me if that makes any sense at all.

The NYC image is incrediblely funny. I still get people asking me if its really that unsafe. They may have watched American Gangster way too many times.
