The Best/Most Australian Interview Ever

by 12 days ago. Contribute

The TODAY team talks to unlikely heroes James Ross-Munroe and Kane Wiblen about the chance coincidence that led them to taking the keys out of the engine of a robber’s car in Queensland.

I missed this, and I’m embarrassed. However, it seems appropriate to make up for it on Australia Day.

Some quick translations:

Stubbies: Shorts
Servo: Gas Station
Plugger: Thongs/Flip Flops
Oporto: Australian Fast Food Restaurant
Mootdangas: Apparently a vaginal dingleberry

Everyone At This Wedding Can Probably Kill You

A stirring video of the haka being performed at the wedding of Aaliyah and Benjamin Armstrong in Auckland, New Zealand. The Maori war dance was organised by the 23-year-old groom’s best man and was led by his older brother.

The BBC has more:

Ms Armstrong, 21, told the BBC she was “blown away” by the performance. She said the haka was a sign of respect from her husband’s best man and family not, as some have commented online, an attempt to intimidate him.

“I wasn’t planning on jumping in until one bridesmaid did,” said Ms Armstrong. “I felt the need to show love and respect back. I was really blown away.”

Women do not normally perform the haka in Maori culture but she said they can do at weddings.
