We’re so easy to stir

According to The Age, Australia is viewed internationally as a sort of “dumb blonde” (“shallow and unintelligent”).

Well, The Age thinks we can do better than that: we can be a self-obsessed, navel-gazing “dumb blonde”:

I expect this to be the lead story on other news sites by the end of the day. Sod the stupid miners and their stupid uplifting rescue. (PS: if I were a newspaper sub, that’d be the heading I’d have suggested over a shot of the cage coming out of the ground: UPLIFTING.)

NOTE: I am aware that I’m rewarding the linkbaiting by linking to it, but in my defence at least it’s not to debate the stupid non-topic.

    Either usual readers of The Age are extraordinarily adept at reading international feelings toward Australia, or they’re a bunch of narcassicistic self-hating emo’s who just want to be loved. Coz that poll is 79% in the affirmative.

    Does this only relate to blonde women who are photoshopped and hold Australian citizenship?
