Tourism Australia has a great sense of humor… while many Facebookers apparently do not.
They posted a pic (above) of a kangaroo, lounging back, enjoying the beautiful Australian weather.
They also blurred out his enormous genitals! LOLz!
They posted the pic and wrote:
"Enjoying a lazy afternoon at Featherdale Wildlife Park. *Censored for Facebook."
Ha! We all know you can't be waving your genitals around on Facebook… but animals??
The post has over 30,000 "likes" and has over 1,600 comments.
Some of the negative comments read:
"It’s ridiculous that the reproductive organs of an animal are blurred out. How many sickos out there think this is sexual. Society sickens me."
"You have just lost ALL my respect. I shall now remove the link to you, good bye, oh, and grow up. I was brought up in my teens in Australia : You do not represent the Australia I knew and loved."
Okay… people are clearly taking things WAY too seriously!
It was just a joke, you guys!
Def a great way to get people talking about Australia, though. Nice publicity stunt! A+!
