I thought it would be Austro for Australia, not Astro. Why would the leave out a continent that started with A.-- the preceding unsigned comment was written by 216.13.114.198.

Difficult to say, but it seems more like to be "Astro", given how that indicates some sort of space travelling. Indeed, which would make sense for this Association. The real question is whether it should be part of the hyphen... word. --Svip 15:36, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
looking up "Austro" on wikipedia gets Austria. the plot thickens! --I'm Scruffy... the Janitor. 23:15, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
Indeed. The Austria-Hungary Empire was often called the Austro-Hungary Empire. So, it seems more likely to be Astro in my mind. --Svip 23:16, 9 October 2009 (UTC)
The closed captioning from the episode said "Austro". I could dig out the DVD to see what the subtitles say. It's not about what makes sense, but about what is funny. Austro is funnier then Astro. Antarctico is also a made up word.
