Australia Neknominate and Boomerangit Crazes

While there is no doubt that the satirical comedy epic travel quest Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps has put Australia on the map for the outside world, is there any evidence of it leaving a lasting cultural impact on the land down under.

Australia Still Winning Cricket and Boomeranging

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams with a satirical comedy sort of sports report. It seems that as long as the Australia cricket team are winning, the boomerang will continue, and having just won the one-day series, it looks as if the boomerang will continue for a little while more.

In fact, there is now a boomeranging kangaroo on the insignia of the baggy green, personified by Brian in the Werewolf of Oz.

It is surviving in Australia parallel with the more dangerous and unruly neknominate.

Boomeranging Rides Wave of Neknominating

Unfortunately, it is neknominate; which revolves around beer-drinking;  that is grabbing the headlines, such as in the Metro last Wednesday.

Fortunately, a surfer combined a beer-necking with the golden oldie craze greenygreying and a new development in boomeranging.

This meant that the first documented photo of a double one-armed twisting boomerang made it into the British media. Moreover, the surfer showed great skill to vary the boomeranging arms between the closed-armed boomerang seen above, and the open-armed boomerang below.

A new social media craze in which people are encouraged to film themselves skolling alcoholic drinks, including whole bottles of spirits  taken from www.facebook.com/neknominatevideos

He is obviously an experienced boomeranger, so please don’t attempt this pose in your nearest sea.
