One for the Aussies by johnnythemonkey on 20 December 2006 1:38pm
 
A Glasgow based newspaper has been giving examples of Aussies love of plain speaking.They tell,today, of rural Aussie farmers launching an advertising campaign to boost sales of local meat products.They came up with a bumper sticker.
"Eat more meat you bastards"
LOL.Saatchi&Saatchi had better watch out!

No kazzzz!I'ts an example of the kinda Aussie humour that endears you to those of us who like you.How do you think we feel about stereotypical Scotsman jokes.They make us want to give the teller a "Glasgow Handshake"
No stereotype here then!! LOL.

kazzzz i'm gonna be honest here. it is often the most untrue sterotypes that edures one society to another. why do you think fake african plastic safaris are so popular.

but dont worry. you'de often find people are more interested in other things. like that movie with toni collete, japenese story. it depicts aussies differently, maybe more accurately.

but still. "eat more meat you bastards" is very funny

i agree its wrong to steriotype people, its like if it was true kaz would be woman who likes to drink too much,keeps the winter plumage on, talks about barbies,prawns, tinnies and vegimite. hmmm maybe they are not steriotypes after all? and i would be sat here with my ferret, flat cap eating pork scratchings counting every penny i have (its 3 pence now kaz)while checking the local whippet guide. which im not!!! i dont like pork scratchings its bloody black pudding lass (all the rest are correct though) right must go as the candle is getting low, someones trying to use my fresh 3 week old teabag and theres a horrid draught blowing through the end of my shoebox, ermmm i ment house

Do the overseas folk really think Aussies say "bastard" all the time then? Interesting...
