Australia's Frothy Waters Cause Concern

To Prison Island, where spoilsport smartypants are trying to suck all the joy out of the only nonviolent activity to bring the natives pleasure: "A toxicologist has warned against frolicking in the smelly brown foam blanketing Sunshine Coast beaches as hidden dangers lurk within. University of Queensland Associate Professor Barry Noller said residents should steer clear of the foam whipped up by strong winds off the foreshore for fears it may be poisonous and containing pollutants, toxins and sewage." To which Australians are all, "So?" [Via]

Isn't this why they drink so much the rest of the year? To fill their blood with enough alcohol to kill any foam-spread toxins?
