Austereo has been in damage control ever since the death of nurse Saldanha, including permitting the two DJs to appear on Australian tv and, amid their tears, express their sorrow for the tragic consequences of their hoax call.
Some may say this proves an increasing trend towards obesity, whereas others would say it proves the existence of God. Unless that’s also just a big lie and then people expect us to be exceptionally hot and big boobed only to be disappointed by the reality.
Detective Chief Inspector James Harman said: ‘Jacintha Saldanha was found by a colleague and a member of security staff. At this time there are no suspicious circumstances.’Mrs Saldanha, a night sister, was the senior nurse on duty when she took a call at 5.30am on Tuesday from Australian DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian, who were pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.
Namely, that we’re a lot less awesome than we think we are and we don’t even realise it.
Apparently we have fallen for our own Tourism ads and accordingly we have a fairly good opinion of ourselves that is either not shared by others or is completely at odds with the reality of our situation. I’ll tell you after I stop awkwardly asking myself rhetorical questions as a segue into the article. Thanks to myths of bad arsery perpetuated by ‘Crocodile Dundee’, ‘Mad Max’, ‘The Crocodile Hunter’ and Russell Crowe’s right arm, Australia has put forth the idea that if we’re not out in the desert wrestling crocs or navigating a post-apocalyptic wasteland overrun by awful, awful children, it’s merely because the waiting list is just too damn long.
In other words, we tend to buy into our own stereotypes to the detriment of our health and safety.
Whenever you travel overseas, as soon as people realise you’re Australian, they decide that the next best course of action is to get you drunk and make various jokes about wanting to go ‘down under’.Yet despite these frequent dalliances into the land of ingeniously thought out puns and witticisms, being Australian can have its drawbacks.
Sure people can ask us stupid questions like “Do you guys travel in the pouches of kangaroos? ” (the answer to both being, fucking ), but in terms of anything of real importance, such as our politics, current affairs and foreign policy, we pretty much get a mulligan.Drinking to excess, being obnoxious about sport and generally acting like we’re allergic to etiquette are some of the most notable symptoms: “In this day and age we are better known as being rude, unabashed, whingers notorious for drinking too much and getting into fights.” At Oktoberfest, extra security guards are hired just to deal with the Australian tent.This may in part be down to a huge fight that happened in 2007 that involved 300 Aussies, as well as our general penchant for punching people right in the face.The problem doesn’t lie with the expectations of others, however, rather it lies with our own bizarre, usually subconscious beliefs that we actually are all those things that we pretend to be in the talkies (or the ‘big pictures’ as they’re commonly called).When confronted with danger, we almost immediately start convincing ourselves that despite having lived in the inner city for most of our lives, we are completely capable of Mad Maxing all over the place, entirely forgetting about the fight we lost to our bean bag last night in the eternal struggle to get up off the ground.Although Austero has repeatedly apologised for the ‘tragic, regrettable death’ of the nurse and has committed at least $500,000 (£326,000) to a memorial fund for her family, the media watchdog has shown its determination to dig deeper into the scandal.
