They're NOT - believe me, an Aussie would know. It's just another classic case of Americans screwing up the English language. A koala is just a koala.

Ok naggin. Now your just getting a bit offensive. Your point is noted and filed away. Grow up a bit and get over it please. It's not like that's the only misconception everyone, not just Americans, have about many things, even Aussies. This flag-waving Democratic American will not tolerate your abuse.

If you feel we Americans are screwing up "anything", maybe you better stay home rather than offend the American Quantum Leap actors who obviously have made a fan out of you. They speak screwed-up English too btw.

Get over it and move on please.

I stand corrected, Naggin! Over here in England, those cute, fluffy little marsupials are called Koala bears too, so we're just as guilty of mangling the mother tongue.

I dunno. Technically naggindraggon is right, but people have called them koala bears for years and years and are not going to stop now just cause Nags says to. I do it, everyone over here does it lol.

I love koala bears!!! (The fluffy little stuffed kind) not the real growling kind in Bexters back yard!

Oh Gosh this is unBEARable!!!

boom boom!!!

oh hang on what was this thread again...............

My expectation is to be able smack nags across the back of the head when he gets too full of himself!! As long as he'll still sit next to me at the con, and shove me towards the door when I start to hyperventilate from the crowd (I don't do crowds well)

Sorry guys, I was only teasing (I do that... Bexter tells me I sound like a tosser, lol), and it got a little out of hand. I didn't mean to offend anyone. My apologies.

The only thing I have to add is my disappointment that Bexter is no longer quoting Blackadder, so I'll take the liberty.

Nursie: If you weren't quite so big, it would be time for Mr and Mrs Spank to pay a short sharp trip to Bottieland.

I stand corrected. Now, after finishing Laurie and Fry, am off to Black Adder the Fourth.

I don't think anyone was offended - we're all just playing along

Bex, you'll probably have to explain the word that starts with w and rhymes with banker, too, as that's not well known in the States either!

Replying to this thread in reverse order: Koalas smell like fuzzy coughdrops. I didn't know our weakness is gas (but then again, look at what we eat). The flag colours of the UK and Australia are the same as ours- red, white and blue. And hurray for those in charge of the convention!

Did I miss anything?

Oh good grief!!! Is anyone going to be able to undestand a jolly word I say???

Brian didn't even know what I meant when I said "you'll keep"! which means
Just wait until I see you.... you're in for it. (I was joking)

Yes thank you ATO the coloUrs are red white and blue (I did think of that when CT said what he said)

And you know, the biggest reason I'm coming to leap back is not to see the stars but to meet the people on this website who are the real stars to me (you included ATO) The people on this website are wonderful and I really can't wait to meet everyone and spend time with them. I even lay awake at night thinking about it. The committee are amazing for what they have done. Marc is a amazing for volunteering his time and creating such enthusiasm. And those who aren't coming and wish they were you are amazing to becuase you are sharing in the excitement (I'm particularly referring to Leaper1 here who's so excited for me) and I know it must be hard, it was hard for me before I decided to come, but I was still excited for you all.

That is the biggest attraction for me, yes I love the show, but I love other shows too, and the reason I'm coming to the con for this one is because of the other fans who love it too.

Isn't it great that as a group we can share all the excitement of the lead up to our big holidays with each other. I didn't realise that until now. You go on a normal holiday and often you don't think about it much until the day you leave, but not this one.... the lead up is just as much fun as the holiday.

I watch enough British TV and movies that I can translate into Americanized English if need be. Though I am having difficulty finding a direct equivilant for a word beginning with s and rhyming with pod...

Personally, my favourite Blackadder quote is

Melchet:- Ah..Blackadder, starting to talk to yourself I see.
Blackadder:-Well it's my only way of an intelligent conversation.

CLASSIC!

Its a show that starred Rowan Atkinson and Hugh Laurie (you know... Mr Bean & Dr House) The quotes and insluts are awesome...

Here is a link where you can waste many hours immersing yourself in wonderul blackadder quotes and comedy.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/blackadd...es/index.shtml

Blackadder: They do say, Mrs M, that verbal insults hurt more than physical pain. They are, of course, wrong, as you will soon discover when I stick this toasting fork into your head.

It is of course not nearly as good as Quantum Leap!!! and I wouldn't in my wildest dreams consider flying half way across the world to go the a Blackadder convention.... besides Scott Bakula is way more sexy than Rowan Atkinson
