Okay, firstly, I want to say that this node is 100% serious. Secondly, I live in Australia. Some people call Australia "the smart country".


When the Australian Bureau of Statistics decided to do a census this year, they also decided to create a song to advertise it. This song is sung to the tune of Waltzing Matilda, and is printed on the mouse pad I'm currently using. Good God.

We're counting Australia
We're counting Australia
To plan for the future
We're counting on you
To fill out your census form
On August the seventh
Come on Australia -
We're counting on you

I don't know whats funnier; the fact that this song is serious, or the fact that they paid someone to write it.
