Southeast Down Under

My sister's boyfriend is from Australia, so when she asked me to guess what he got her for Christmas I quickly responded with a list of possible gifts: A boomerang? Vegemite? A croc? A Subaru? A surfboard? A knife? (That's not a knife, this is a knife.)

"No," she laughed. "He got me an inflatable kangaroo that I can ride around the apartment."

I should have known. What still confuses me is how he managed to sneak down from New York and put these giant yellow Kangaroo ornaments in the trees over on Mass and 9th. However he did it, I bet a didgeridoo was involved.
