Comic Book Book 23: Oz Special by DukeStewart Comic Book Book 23: Oz Special by DukeStewart
Anyone with half a brain knows that a New Zealander that's been called Australian increases in strength tenfold. It's not that we hate Australia. We just hate being confused for them.
It seems like only those from down under can distinguish the difference.
And no. "Down Under" doesn't just mean Australia either. And NO New Zealand isn't part of Australia either! What? NO I don't like shrimp!!!
NO I'M NOT BEING STEREOTYPICAL!!!!

I am Australian XD and for a while I couldn't really tell the difference. But I used to have trouble with actually recognizing accents XD

Anyway, I can totally tell the difference now XD

*raises hand* but isn't New Zealand normally considered part of the Australian continent?

Its more that New Zealanders hate being mistaken for Australians. We may have similar origins and share a holiday that acknowledge each other, but New Zealand is a separate country.

Plus I think its called Oceania now.

I slightly know how you feel. I've been asked if I was Aboriginal though I clearly am not (if I offended anyone who is from that culture I am so sorry) The only thing is I'm Australian.

I read an interview between Lil' Wayne and the reporter. The reporter asked whether Lil' Wayne had arrived in Australia yet.
He said "yes, I've been hanging out in Auckland all day."
At this point the reporter points out that Australia and New Zealand aren't connected. This just shows how dumb some people can be.

I somewhat know your pain...ACCEPT I FEEL IT TEN TIMES WORSE THEN YOU! I'm from Washington State in America, back in the good old days the only thing I'd have to worry about when I told people that I'm from washington was them replying back with 'Oh you mean D.C.?' which resulted in a sigh and facepalm. BUT NOW! Whenever I say I'm from Washington the response is 'OMG! LIKE WHERE EDWARD, BELLA, AND JACOB ARE FROM IN TWILIGHT?" From that there is a moment of silence as I try not to kill the people in front of me...At least you don't have idiots looking for sparkly vampires! I'd much rather be in your situation! Likewise that was funny....:D

I never understood why in English the whole continent is called Australia :/. In Spanish we learn it as Oceanía!

Also, that happens everywhere. People from Guatemala and such are called Mexicans a lot, for example..
