I am sitting here on the deck with a coffee and reading the papers, listening to the humdrum of morning tv.
And what’s going on over here, is that a British branding expert (really, there are branding experts?) by the name of Simon Anholt has named Australia as the ‘dumb blonde’ of the world’, as attractive but shallow & unintelligent!
I read through the article funnily enough while I was choosing a few snaps to show you just another stunning Australian view.
And while, yes, I know where Simon is coming from..and indeed I myself experienced this blinkered view of Australia recently when I went back to the Old Country…
But I had a little chuckle to myself
Because, as any blonde knows..
..the dumb ones are those not in the know
for this my friend’s is the lucky country.
And don’t we know it.
