A few Triple M listeners sent us in the above screen-shot of how Australia was purportedly described on American TV network NBC's website.

After the screen-shot went viral around Australia, it appears that NBC has got its act together and the description now reads:

"The world's sixth-largest nation in area and the smallest of the seven continents. Located in the Southern Hemisphere between the Indian and Pacific Oceans."

Now that they have got that right, perhaps they can concentrate on their over-achieving athletes, like volleyballer Destinee Hooker.

It's arguable that Hooker has already exceeded her parents' expectations?

Oh, and while we're at having a crack at the US - at least Australians could watch the opening ceremony live!
