One Sydney resident told XenoxNews that he hoped Australia's own King Canute would head to the beach and order the waves back.
"We all know the Australian PM Howard has powers beyond that of mortal man. I say he should stand on the beach and order the waves back!"
With that the very Reverend Chato hoped into his kombi van and drove as fast as he could for the Blue Mountains.
