Why I Love This Country

I just found out how they opened the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The premier of the time was going to open it himself, instead of deferring to a member of the Royal Family. Just as he was about to cut the ribbon, a general on horseback breaks ranks, raises his sword and shouts "In the name of common decency, I declare this bridge open!" and cuts the ribbon.

They tied the ribbon back up, but some horsebacked general breaks ranks to open the bridge. I just love that irreverance for authority.
