Aussie: Look at this view of nature! It can’t be seen quite like this anywhere else.
Guide: How about on top of the sewage pipe instead of inside it?
Aussie: That attitude is why you are my companion and not the other way around. Why are you wearing that hat anyways? No aliens are coming today friend.
Guide: I’m not wearing the tin foil crown because I’m paranoid of alien abduction, but there is a local legend around here.
Aussie: Legend you say?
Guide: It is said that some time within the next couple of weeks, judgement day is coming and humanity will soon fall to a higher power.
Aussie: What a load of garbage!
Guide: That is why I wear this crown. It is said that the key to survival is the donning of a crown and Queen.
Aussie: You’ve got a Queen?
Guide: No. Queen as in the rockband. Do you feel that tremor sir? The apocalypse is here!
Aussie: Why are there so many beavers down there?
Guide: The prophecy is coming true!
