The real Australia tax.

Sunscreen: more expensive than gold.

2. Because BARGAINS ARE JUST AN ILLUSION.

3. Even relatively cheap things are rip offs.

Really, we can all make it ourselves (for free)

4. And food prices are just strange.

$3.50 for a “glazed ring?!?” IT’S NOT EVEN A DOUGHNUT?!

5. Taking your kids to that latest Disney flick? $100+

6. And our contrast to America is RIDICULOUS.

I know, I know, health and stuff. But if I want my 1.3 LITER OF COKE I SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET IT DAMMIT!

Updated 20:40 AEST: In February last year Adobe brought pricing of its Creative Cloud offering into line with the United States, with individual membership at AU$49.99 per month (on an annual plan).

8. Tasmania: The optional state.

9. Speaking of GRAND THEFTS.

11. This happens everywhere and it’s the worst.

It’s just depressing.

12. Pringles become a luxury item.

13. And supermarkets have given up trying to make deals.

“Hmm, I love Twix, but I only have $70. Oh well, guess i’ll STARVE.”

14. Really? I mean, come on.

JUST BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE A 25c COIN?!

15. Oh you’re from Australia? $10 PRICE INCREASE!

16. And even when things are cheap, you need your I.D. to buy them.

17. Still, it’s worth taking this into account.
