    whoever's from Antarctica, send me a penguin

    Penguins come to Australia for their holidays but if I catch one and try to send it I will wind up in jail. We have pretty strict laws about exporting wildlife, and as our Govt. claims 40% of Antarctica as Australian Territory I guess that makes it hard to ship them from there as well. Besides they smell of fish and make a terrible mess - you don't really want one around the house. Don't let appearances fool you, the Tux does not guarantee good manners.

    Europe, I believe. But I was I a bit rattled by the warning that others could see my choice, so I'm not sure I managed to click correctly.
    Hope somebody forgives me if I made a mistake.

    I think it's correct, Norweeden is in South America on my map. Of course on my map, South America sits just north of Ireland.

    It's a matter of perspective, which is of course, 9 tenths of reality.

    Well, it was one of those jigsaw puzzle maps, and I had to re-cut a few of the map pieces so they would fit together. You can imagine how surpised I was to find that the South Pole is in Boise, Idaho. :bugeye:

    Oh Cyrus, why are you doing this to me? :cry:
     
  22. May 1, 2006 #21
    Because you do not believe me about my people, the Turds.
     
  23. May 1, 2006 #22
    Because I did not receive a proof for the existance of your country. You've tried to counterfeit the map, but didn't work. That's why you became suspicious. This country isn't even in encyclopedia, on map, on google, and anywhere else. Now, come on, show the very proof of your Turdikistanian origin. Just show the birth certificate, come on :tongue2:

    First of all, anyone will tell you that you don't put your BIRTH CERTIFICATE online so someone can steal your identity. :rolleyes: Second of all, I already gave you a link to uncyclopedia. And its not Turdikistanian, it's Turdish.

    Jason, see this thread:

    I observe the poll doesn't provide an option for alternate dimensions. That's O.K. You'll just never be invited to zoobonia.
