The Great Barrier Rip-off
Officials in Australia are currently warning visitors to the country to beware of starfish selling bits of the Great Barrier Reef. It has recently been reported that the reef, one of the wonders of the natural world, is shrinking. Biologists believe this is the result of prawns, scallops and the aforementioned starfish chipping bits of it off to sell to tourists.
Kevin Drongo, who claims to represent Queensland's Environmental Protection Bureau, is quoted as saying, "G'Day cobbler, how about sticking a couple of tinnies in the billabong and shoving a barbie up your jumbuck, Sheila."
Kevin is not an Australian citizen, he has no connections with the country, and frankly he isn't fooling anyone.
