It's all a matter of perspective

 

While the French people are up in arms about their ‘shampoo socialist’ president spending US$10,000 a month in taxpayer money on a personal hairdresser, and Swiss investors are accepting negative returns on their bonds for the next fifty years, we here in Australia have far more pressing problems:

We've just discovered that good ol' Arnott's has done some kind of witchcraft to its classic Vita-Weat biscuit and we can no longer produce those famous Vegemite-and-butter "worms".

Before you do a Pauline Hanson "Please explain!", basically, if you slathered enough butter and Vegemite between two Vita-Weat biscuits, you could expect worms to appear when you pressed them together (not too firmly, mind you, or they’d shatter and your entire playlunch was ruined).

As I've said many times before, this country is stuffed!
