You may have to click the image to see the caption. And, when you read the caption: You must read each one in an Australian accent. If you don’t, you aren’t doing it right.
And at times things get even more exotic:
In case you still need more proof that I am the Steve Irwin of Our Backyard, I created this video. In the wild. Of our backyard.
