Speaking Japanese in Australia...
In reply to XizzeriA, Aug 16, 2006

When I wore my Navy uniform in an Australian pub many-many years ago, an old Australian gentleman bought me a beer and said,

"See that white hat you're wearing Mate! That's the only bloody reason we're not speaking Japanese in Australia now!"

I was treated royally throughout the country and loved every minute of the month I was lucky enough to stay there.
