Nope. They won it fair and square. They're just pretty damned good!

Nah, there's nothing so unusual about that - it's praise crossing the Tasman in the other direction that last happened sometime just before the Pleistocene era.

Pleistocene? That recently? Somewhere I have it written that it was the Pre-Cambrian. It possibly might have been the Triassic, but you know what those dinosaurs across the Tasman are like when it comes to reading and writing. Sharing the brain-cell, on its own, actually takes more nous that most of them have available ... on a quiet day in Sydney you can sometimes hear the occasional "Phhhhtaph" of a synapse firing. But not very often.
