It’s interesting to see the little things travellers find amusing about Australia (mainly because there are so many little, amusing things I find wrong with the US). I’m greatly impressed by the divine confluence which produced this marvellously unfortunate cultural translation. (Thanks, Bad Astronomy)
Donner Kebabs just don’t mean the same thing stateside:
The Donner party consisted of a number of families (90 total individuals I believe) who formed a wagon train to cross the Rocky Mountains of the American west. Through a combination of bad planning, bad luck, and bad weather the train became trapped in the Sierra Nevada in the winter of 1846-47. Due to the cold and lack of food people began to die off and some of those remaining turned to cannibalism to survive.
