    Christmas Island is more than 1,000 miles from the Australian mainland. Who cares?

    For the record, Australian’s aren’t be told to use paper bags. From July 1, the major supermarket chains are no longer supplying any bags for free. They will charge 15 cents per bag or you can use your own bag ... like a freaking hippie.

    Wonder if anyone will set up shop in the parking lot with ten cent plastic bags?

    If all the bed wetters did that simultaneously it would solve the global warming issue overnight.

    I guarantee the world would be a cooler place to live, and the collective intellect of the human race would double.

    I do think it's funny how the aussies didn't get this upset about their guns being stolen.

    You do realize that the bags attract bugs and cockroaches are known to lay eggs in the glue and then hatch?

    In my experience, Australians aren’t that entrepreneurial.

    I like not using paper bags or plastic bags as they always tear and the food falls out. I like my New Yorker canvas bags.
