Everybody knows about the kangaroo, the tall marsupial that lives in Australia, but when settlers first went there, they were amazed and had never seen anything like them. They asked an aborigine what the animals were called. He replied, "Kangaroo," so that is what the settlers called them. Little did they know, kangaroo is an aboriginal phrase meaning, "I don't understand your question."

Hello, I'm talking about when Australia was FIRST DISCOVERED. Pay attention, please!!!!!!! And I think you're being ignorant because, no, not everyone understands English.

Yet again, you use examples of made-up characters. Look, I heard this fact off of a documentary. I found it funny, so I posted it here. It is a TRUE FACT. So in other words NOT EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS ENGLISH. And if you don't believe me ask my penpal from Russia, to whom I write IN RUSSIAN, because HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND ENGLISH.

no! immigrants here take a test and they must be able to speak sufficient English to get in. Illegal immigrants don't tho. So no everyone doesn't understand English which is also why when major scientists meet with other scientists from around the world, they speak in Latin so everyone knows what everyone else is talking about! great joke

No it is not. Some English words come from Latin but the languages are not the same thing. Spanish is a dialect of Latin, though. I don't understand why you keep pushing this, hubluza. If you want to live in your little fantasy world where everything that happens on television is true then go ahead. But when your ready to stop by the real world, let me know.

nice piece of trivia, but the only joke is hubluza, and whatever planet hubluza is from that speaks english forgot the rule about --LEAVE NO CHILD BEHIND--although they probably left hubluza behind as their joke to humanity
