Aussies - you've always got to go one better...

Now our antipodean cousins have gone one too far by claiming they invented streaking. Given that the Poms invented original versions of nearly every sport going (even if we can't win at them), it's sacriledge to lay claim the ultimate sporting compliment, the streak.
