Australia is known for freaky accidents, usually involving the country’s dangerous wildlife. But is that reputation a little unfair?
Take the guy who narrowly escaped death last Sunday after diving into crocodile-infested waters in Queensland.
Sure, it’s a precarious situation. But it could’ve been avoided…if only the dude wasn’t a dumbass, according to Australian comedian Ronny Chieng on The Daily Show.
“Everyone thinks Australians are a bunch of crazy crocodile wrestlers,” Chieng said on Thursday.
“I’ve lived there for 10 years. Nothing happened … My point is Australia can be dangerous, if you’re a dumbass. But everywhere is dangerous if you’re a dumbass. A car wash can be dangerous if you’re a dumbass.”
Of course, you can also blame Australia’s love of goon a.k.a. extremely cheap boxed wine for the country’s eye-watering stupidity.
It’s still no excuse to jump in with crocodiles to land a date, though. Unless you’re a dumbass.
