Fark Comments
The comments section at Fark is an interesting microcosm of world. This morning I read the following headline:
Austrian president dead at 71. Nation mourns by putting another shrimp on the barbie
I knew the reference immediately. In Dumb and Dumber, some women comments to Jim Carrey that she from Austria and he says, "Austria! Well, then. G'day mate! Let's put another shrimp on the barbie!"

Reading through the comments, I knew it was only a matter of time before some clueless know-it-all said, "hey its Austria, not Australia, dumbass" or something like that. Sure enough it took 5 comments before someone mentioned it.
