18 Things Australians Do That Americans Can't Get Their Head Around
What does “punching a dart” even mean?
First off, Americans get very confused about what language Australians are actually speaking.
It’s hard for them to understand that biscuits in Australia are sweet and usually served with a cup of tea.
Americans prefer their pastries sweet, so when it comes to things like the humble meat pie and good ‘ole sausage roll, it’s almost too much to handle.
