OK, there have been a few things bugging me recently, mostly due to television and its inability to get things right about my country. These are: 1. The Koala is not a bear. It is a marsupial and is not related to the bear in any way aside from the fact that they are both mammals. If any of you are involved in writing for television series please ensure that you never refer to a "Koala Bear." It's just plain old "Koala." 2. The Emu, a large, flightless bird native to Australia is pronounced "EEm-ewe" NOT "EEm-ooo." Get. It. Right. That's all for the moment. I'm in a mood tonight, and I'm not going to pull any punches.
