Ha... Next year's story will be set in a quiet rural Australian town. There will be talking Kangaroos and dingoes carrying off babies and everything.
Everyone will greet each other with a G'Day, and then stand around nodding at stuff, because you don't talk in a small farming town coz you already know what everyone else is going to say... That, and if you open your mouth, the flies get in.
What's that, you want pig fender back in control? Bad luck pig fender, I tried!
Matt, you left out some bits. Everyone stands in the street because of the drop bears (technically killer koalas, but we'll use the local lingo) in the trees and the crocodiles in the creeks. And Nicole Kidman—I mean, our heroine—wants to adopt a little aboriginal boy and Hugh Jackman—I mean, our hero—has muscles but is a decent bloke. And everyone wears hats. That's important. The baddy can have a nice hat to show that he has money and everyone in small farming towns knows that only baddies have money. He probably runs the baby-dingo racket, but that's OK because the dingoes are trained to only go for tourist babies and the tourists are outsiders. Have I missed anything?
