What does it mean to be an Australian furry?

To go from something uniquely furry (a rat being stung by the implied criticism of a raccoon) to something uniquely Australian (mowing the lawn with a Victa mower while drinking a stubby of beer on Anzac Day).

You had me googling "Victa mower" and "Anzac". Now I'm more educated! :D

Sounds like a plan! Except for the mowing part - my Victa mower needs new blades.

Aaah, work on public holidays. The best day TO work, if you have to anyway. But that sounds pretty good to me, except for the mowing part, and the being stung part. I'll take the rest, right about now. ... if it was somethin' other than beer.
Oh wait.. I'm being unaustralian again. Damn. x.x

You're in fine form today. You got me laughing out loud. Now that we no longer have a Prime Minister lecturing us about what is and isn't Australian, you can decide for yourself.

(Though I admit I do find your dislike of vegemite very suspicious.)

Dislike? Whats not to like about salt? Oh, thats right, its the fermeted grain taste that i'm not into, kinda tastes like beer. Now Soy sauce, THERES some sodium for weasels. :3
Vegemite is quite alright! But not ambrosia of the gods.

Vegemite was not very good. I tried it, even brought some back with me, more as a joke than anything else.

Give it to Nicodemus. I want to introduce him to the joy that is vegemite. And you'll learn to love it, just like Ristin.

So rats are using mowers as well as rakes? Are they trying to move into the landscaping market in addition to the supermarket?

I think the rats of Nimh have you beat on that accord, unless this is a real life story of more of the same.
