    'Stoned wallabies make crop circles'

    In celebration of the US Government shut-down (shh, don't tell me it hasn't quite happened yet!) I'd like to start another Aussie thread. They're eversomuch the funnest.

    According to a BBC News report:

    Australian wallabies are eating opium poppies and creating crop circles as they hop around "as high as a kite", a government official has said.
    The news seems to have hit a worldwide chord.

    Bumped into a couple o' stoned wallabies coming out the co-op up Lochgelly high street the other night. This seems to be a problem on both sides of the globe.

    I want to know who sold out the wallabies? Who's the narc? My guess is the platypus, he is such an odd duck.

    The head of the Wallaby union has apparently not replied to requests for confirmation of the report.

    (God, this is so much better than Trump, Forbes, and mistresses named Stormy who looks creepily like Ivanka. Anyone else have some pleasantly distracting stories to offer?)

    ^ What Maryn said. Some of the comments under the article had me in stitches. Good to laugh for a change. Thanks.

    Sure looks like the Aussies have an opioid problem of their own, m8.

    Do they make them clockwise or counterclockwise, and would it change if they were north of the equator?
