I know, we all have a good chuckle at stuff like this:

About 100,000 homes in the Sydney area are said to be at risk, with 31,500 of those being in the city’s North Shore. Residents have been warned to take action before it’s too late.
‘Under these conditions, some fires may start and spread so quickly there is little time for a warning, so do not wait and see,’ the Rural Fire Service said on Monday.
‘There are simply not enough fire trucks for every house. If you call for help, you may not get it. Do not expect a firetruck. Do not expect a knock on the door. Do not expect a phone call. Your safest option will always be to leave early.’
Looks like everything’s more dangerous Down Under: snakes, spiders, sharks, Train Smash Women — and now, fires.
Good luck, me old cobbers. Holding thumbs on this side of the water…
