Aussie exports to Japan

The Australian economy is reliant on our export industries.

Here is another example of a small Australian taking on the world:

Currently only being exported to Japan but I think we need to look wider.

I'm pretty sure the spiders are going to win this one.

In like your entrepreneurial attitudes. The world needs Aussie exports.

Could I interest you in a Taipan?

Obviously there is a marketing strategy here, once we get our red back export business established, there will be follow up industries, for example, dunny exports, where else are you going to house your red backs except in an outdoor khazi?


I see that we are holding back on the good stuff, don't let them get their hands on a funnel web until the red back market is saturated.
Good stuff!

No thanks. We already have those in North Carolina in the states. I killed a few this year in my shed.

Yup, found a couple here in California too. We're big on spiders in the delta, fortunately very few of them are harmful in any way other than the annoyance of constantly battling the webs.

Is that an authentic Aussie Red Back or a Chinese counterfeit?

We don't do BIG spiders, but they do BIG poison. Ditto snakes. We do BIG crocs, BIG sharks and BIG kick-you-to-death birds though.

What can I interest you in today Bill?
