Give Australia back to the Aubergines!

Spotted here on the Cyprus Mail website, this hilarious piece…

TWO WEEKS ago, a Turkish lady commenting on the Cyprus Mail website, posted the following comment to defend her argument: “Netherlands occupy Antilles, Australians exterminate the Aubergines, English occupies Falklands and never go back.” In another post, related to the same article, she added: “So according to your logic, Americans should return USA to Indians or Australians return Australia to the Aubergines.”

Aubergines were the indigenous population of Australia and were eaten up by the first white settlers, Big Bad Al’s forefathers. They are not to be confused with Aborigines which are also known as egg-plants and are widely used in Greek, Arab and Italian cuisines.
