On behalf of my homeland, can we please get one thing perfectly clear? Mel Gibson is not Australian.

In fact, very few of the celebrities you probably think of as Australian were actually born in the land down under. (For that matter, the Men at Work hit 'Land Down Under'? Sung by a Scotsman.)

Even the country's own prime minister is not originally from Australia. In fact, in the following list of ten prominent people and musical acts you probably think of as Aussies, only one can claim to be truly Australian -- and even then, only by a whisker.
