Dear World– We Apologize.

American tourist #1: What’s your background?
Tourist guide: Aboriginal.
American tourist #1: No, as in “where were you born?“
Tourist guide: Here, in Australia.
American tourist #1: But you’re black!
Tourist guide: Yes… I’m aboriginal.
American tourist #1: But I thought you guys were all extinct! Are you, like, the last one?
American tourist #2: Jay, shut up. It’s idiots like you that make us look stupid. He’s messing with you, there are no aboriginals.

An Institution Worth Protecting

Obese middle-aged tourist to husband: I called him and told him we’re at passenger pick-up 2. He called and asked where we’d be, and I said passenger pick-up 2, that’s where he can find us. It’s just easier to find us when he gets here. Passenger pick-up 2. And it’s cold. That’s why I brought this vest. I brought this vest in case it got cold, and it got cold. I’m going to button it up. Did you hear me? I’m going to button it up. There, it’s buttoned. (husband ignores her)
