Yesterday was the 222nd anniversary of the fine country of Australia, celebrated under the clever moniker Australia Day
-- or Invasion Day, if you want to get all badass about it.
What do your favorite Foster's-guzzling, thong-footwear-wearing

, which saw Australia's ruling government crushed by an armed uprising of Captain Morgan fanatics.
Oh, we also love 1/26 because of Doctor Pong's Pub
Vegemite Bikini Wrestling, or whatever this madness is called.
Vegemite. It's Australian for "hot sex."
