Australian Humour
Australian humour is often upside down. For instance, Australians love calling a tall man "Shorty", a silent one "Rowdy", a bald man "Curly", and a redhead is "Blue".  
+
 
Australian humour may also be directed towards one racial group. For example, Australians of Greek extraction occasionally talk about their upbringing; they get nostalgic when they remember their mothers teaching them how to put on their underwear - yellow at the front and brown at the back, or how their fathers gave them gold chains so they would know where to stop shaving.

Irony is also common at a national level. During the opening of the Sydney Olympics, an obviously drunk Governor General, Sir William Deane, pronounced "Sa-sa-Sydney" and then knocked over the microphone.  It was a shameful performance and most countries would have been scared that the world would have thought they were being led by a buffoon!! However, most Australians just found it funny, and even made jokes that if the Governor was fired for being drunk on the job, he may have a career as a rap singer.

When Australia was still a British colony, the ability to make a policeman laugh was so important that it could save lives. An important example of such a sense of humour was a convict of African extraction called Billy Blue. Billy had an old military uniform, a hat and a repertoire of jokes. So much did the authorities like him that they 'believed' that he was not an alcohol smuggler, but just kept finding bottles floating in Sydney harbour. Billy said that he had been stopped before he had had a chance to report it to the police.

When full-figured cricket player Shane Warne was found guilty of using a banned medication, he claimed that he was just trying to lose weight to look good for the cameras. He even threw in a few fat jokes, for example, that he was tired of being teased about having "more chins than a Chinese phonebook." Instead of being given the standard two-year suspension, Shane was only banned for one year. Don’t the Australians have a sense of humour?
