Impossibilities

People in Sydney are often like little robots. If you mention a country you will automatically get some basically racist response.

  • It is impossible in Sydney to talk about New Zealand without some stupid dork mentioning sheep.
  • It is impossible in Sydney to talk about vending machines in Japan without some stupid dork mentioning teenage girl panty vending machines.
  • It is impossible in Sydney to talk about Korea without some stupid dork mentioning easting dog.
  • It is impossible in Sydney to talk about China without some stupid dork mentioning that everything in China is bad because it is not a democracy.
  • It is impossible in Sydney to talk about Thailand without some stupid dork mentioning the sex industry.

Of course this never happens if you talk about the UK or the USA.

Addendum: Here are two I forgot when doing the original post:

  • Is it impossible to talk of Germany without some stupid dork mentioning the nazi party. (though this is a little bit true of Melbourne as well).
  • It is impossible to talk of the Aztecs without some stupid dork mentioning sacrifice.

And another addition:

  • A few weeks back I was speaking to someone of a funeral in indonesia. He then went on to talk about how they just staged these things for the tourists and to make money by selling trinkets. The four of us were the only foreigners there and, a little unusually, no one tried to sell us anything.
