Wouldn't call that a waste of time


Some of the comments on my last comic reminded me that I've been meaning to make a comic about this Australian saying. When used like this it basically means "I'm not here to waste time"

Cue the inevitable Rule34 pic set in an alternate universe where they both have hot steamy sex with the spiders.

Australia needs to have a consult with someone about that, being a British Colony takes its toll to the mind :)

Fucking spiders in Oz is not only a waste of time, it's an occupation that could end very badly.

As a golden rule, in Australia if it crawls, if it jumps, if it grows, if it's got legs, if it floats, if it's green, if it's alive or even dead,... don't touch it.

I'm having difficulty finding it now, but I *think* this originated as a meme. The meme being about how Australians will immediately back up claims like this without hesitation. So, American goes to the bar, Australian tells him about the phrase, and all the Aussies nearby say, "Yeah, absolutely! Totally a thing!"

I could be mixing this up with something completely different, so I'm not certain. But it would definitely make sense with the number of Aussies that say they've never heard this phrase.

The meme got pretty big, though, so maybe it's a real thing now? I see tons and tons of sources for it.

I'm a New Zealander and the phrase "spider-fucking" goes back to at least the 1970s meaning excessive fussiness about tiny details. This is consistent with the cartoon.
