Explanation: Have you ever heard the story about how the Australian animal kangaroo got its name? This is how it appears in an aussies' website: "Kangaroo in aboriginal means something like: I don't know what your talking about. Coz i heard that wen the english settlers came here, they didnt know what they were and go to the natives, "what are those jumpy thingies?" and the aboringinals, not being able to speak english replied "Kangaroo".
