Robin Williams Says English Are Grey-Skinned Australians

by | 1st, April 2010

ACCORDING to Robin Williams the English are grey-skinned Australians:

“The Australians are basically English rednecks…,’’ [Williams] said….

Aussie red-face Kevin Rudd reacts to a joke:

Mr Rudd said: “First of all, I think Robin Williams should go and spend a bit of time in Alabama before he frames comments about anyone being particularly redneck.”

Alabama reacts to the diplomacy:

But in a statement today, Alabama Governor Bob Riley said Mr Rudd did not know what he was talking about.

“I’m not sure if Prime Minister Rudd has ever been to Alabama. If he has, he would know that Alabamians are decent, hard working, creative people. That’s why Alabama is home to Australian companies like Austral which employs more than 1000 Alabamians at the world’s largest alumnium shipyard.”

Kindred spirits, then..?
