or because they win more than the UK? if the latter, he's walked into a trap the silly git. If the former, he can still say Australia is much smaller than the UK and they still have 11 golds themselves.
It was like "You Brits don't like the Olympics because you're rubbish, but we love it because we're ace!" UNLUCKY, AUSSIE.
despite having a third of the population.
I wouldn't laugh too hard
Look, I love to see Australians getting pummelled as much as the next man, but
1. Maybe wait until the thing is finished before crowing
2. Again, if you include size of population, there's not all that much to crow about anyway
we're caning America and China.
fellating themselves over having won more medals than the Limeys though
we're getting caned by Slovenia, Jamaica, Bahrain, Estonia, Australia, New Zealand, Slovakia, Denmark, Trinidad and Tobago, Armenia, Mongolia, Belarus, Cuba, the Netherlands and Georgia
It's like when England won the Ashes for the first time in a thousand years - the sudden bravado achieves the amazing feat of suddenly making the Aussies look sporting. And then England gets demolished 5-0 in the next series.....
If they're going to take the piss out of us for doing shit at the Olympics, the least we can do is revel in it when we do better than them.
Defending Australia is weird
the wonders of the Australia v UK slanging matches, almost as fun (i.e. boring) as hearing the English and Scots trade endless insults.
They're both crap at football anyway, there's something in common.
Still, like I say, population-wise Australia still punch most above their weight out of most of the leading nations at the Olympics. Even foot in mouth comedians can't stop that being true.
they'll still thump England in the Ashes next year probably :(
