Enjoyed this and the sarcastic humor laced throughout.
I enjoyed your excellently written satire. I am still, though, trying to imagine pickles on a bacon sandwich@
This is very funny and has finally confirmed one of my life long suspicions... I am just a figment of someone's imagination.
Hahahahahaha...I'd prove to you Australia really exists, but I am an illusion myself. A vapor I tell ya...

This was great fun to read.

What a riot! You MUST have had fun with this - and Esther's comment is ALMOST as funny! ;) Still giggling.
I knew the duck billed platypus was too good to be true! I always wanted one for a pet, but now my hopes and dreams have been dashed. LOL. This was quite the unique take on the topic. :)
Dear Sebastian Prattson,

As much as I greatly enjoyed your article, I do believe you have been imbibing far too much of your warm English beer, or perhaps eating too many carbo loaded pies with mushy peas. Of course Australia exists. I know that for a fact because I am an Australian. If Australia didn't exist, then I wouldn't exist and I think I'd know whether or not I was really here. I mean, if I were merely the creation of some devious group within MI5 (or was it MI6), I wouldn't be able to respond and say... blink - blink - blink

Unlike Andrew Flintoff at Lord's, you can't dismiss us Aussies so easily! We are definitely real, with a lot more substance than Edison's first light bulb - which was just a filament of his imnagination!
But seriously Gregory, I enjoyed your MC's sense of farce, that elusive mix of exaggeration and subtley which I enjoy so much about British humour.
Well done
