Modern day hero perfectly sums up Australia in viral Facebook post

Australia is a proud nation of meat pies, Tim Tams and never being more than a metre away from some sort of lethal creature.

And one heroic Aussie, Sean Steele from Perth, has taken that national pride and turned it into one of the best Facebook posts we’ve ever seen.

The post details a day in the life of a typical Aussie, starting at 6:30am when obviously everyone wakes up being Australian.

Don’t you just hate it when you open the fridge and a Great White falls out? Just another day in the life of an Aussie.

In an interview with news.com.au, Steele said the post was just written on a whim during his morning coffee and went viral when a friend asked if he could make it public.

“Several other profiles and pages had copied it, most gave me credit. There are tens of thousands of likes and comments and shares total I think,” he said.

“It’s pretty surreal, it’s just something I threw together offhand. I took an existing meme format and threw some current events and well-worn Australianisms in there. Poking fun at our idiosyncratic, privileged, dynamic country and identity.

“The reaction has been great. I’ve seen Australians tagging their friends from overseas and planning their visit to Australia. If it does end up generating some international holidays that would be grouser than an RDO straight after a long weekend.”
