Freezing weather shocks the country – Also see video of nude man cavorting in the snow
“Even Australia’s most iconic animals couldn’t escape the Antarctic blast that blanketed parts of the country in snow on Friday morning,” says the BBC.
So far so good.
But then, the BBC tries to make light of the “unusually cold conditions” by talking about the “adorable pictures taken” of the animals, photos of kangaroos, emus, wombats and Tasmanian devils.
They also try to downplay the unexpectedly huge snowfall by talking of people crafting make-shift toboggans out of signs and boogie boards, or building snowmen and sharing the pictures online.
So heartwarming, aye?
They even include a video of a naked man cavorting in the snow.
Across central New South Wales, towns such as Blackheath and Bathurst were smashed by the weather.
