Wanted: Your questions for Australia

First, I made an addition to my list of what I miss about the USA--the Do Not Call Registry. We get calls all the time here and it drives me crazy.
I was asked by a student at school today what kind of questions he would get if he were to go to the States as an exchange student. I covered what I am asked here back in January, but he wanted to know what it would be like on the other side. So, I need your questions. This will be somewhat artificial since most of you have been reading these updates for a year now, but imagine this was all new to you. What do you want to know? What did you wonder about when we first got here? Maybe someone else you know asked a question when you told them you knew someone in Australia--what was it? Leave a comment asking your questions--the crazier the better.

Is Mick Dundee famous in Australia?
What's the weather like down there?
How often do you see a kangaroo?
That's all I can think of right now.

Do people really use the phrase "Shrimp on the barbie?"

Do toilets spin the other way when you flush?

Are the Wiggles big over there?

Does everyone there hate Steve Irwin as much as we do here?

Do they really eat those cute, cuddly kangaroos? Who could do that??
