Eat lamb on Australia Day

Posted 01-25-2006 at 10:44 PM by cs-cam

Here is the script of a TV advert that has been playing here the last few weeks. This is very much tongue-in-cheek humour, it's advertising lamb but cracks me up and fits into our image so well I had to post it.

Fellow Australians,

The incidents of un-Australian behaviour over the past year was down to one thing, not enough lamb. For example, lamb could have prevented the boofheads perpetrating violence on our beaches. You can't bash someone with a cutlet. And we might not have lost the Ashes if our cricketers picked up lamb chops instead of mobile phones. Why on Earth did they dispatch lurid text messages to English trollops when plenty of Aussie sheilas would gladly target their middle stump.

Yet as mishaps spread across the land like bird flu through a Chinese chicken coop, what were we doing about it? Bugger all! It's time to remind outselves what lies at the core of our national identity. A lamb chop and a barbie. Being Australian doesn't mean you have to call the opposition captain a wanker, even if he is. Or spend every Friday night on the piss until your best friend looks like Elle McPherson.

To be as Australian as I am, just whack some nice juicy lamb chops on the barbie and invite everyone over. If you can't pronounce their name, just call them mate, and celebrate living in the best bloody country on Earth. So don't be un-Australian, serve lamb on Australia Day. you know it makes sense.
