So, I've been invited to a belated Australia Day party next Saturday that's hosted by my Australian professor. Are there any traditions I should be aware of so I don't cause accidental offense? I'm assuming it's okay to come wearing my shirt that has a picture of Uncle Sam taking a giant bite out of the globe and underneath it the phrase "Try and Stop Us", but I just wanted to check.

Oh, of course, just as long as Uncle Sam isn't biting out the part of the globe with Australia on it. ;p At this point in time, I would not bring up how badly our cricket team is doing- the South Africans are pretty much whoopin' their ass. And you may be asked to try Vegemite, which I quite like, but most Americans as a general rule find disgusting. Consider yourself warned!
