Happy Australia Day and Indian Republic Day to all
Today is Australia Day, the day some blokes landed somewhere or t'other and declared this is the place for village containing convicts, then got drunk on rum and went out and killed an aborigine or two and perhaps a kangaroo. Some things about Australia never change. It is also Indian Republic Day. So happy Australia Day and happy Indian Republic Day.
We have had over two hundred years to screw our country up, India only fifty eight years.
Strangely, I think, to celebrate our Australia Day, we are being urged to a lamb (thanks Andy). I would have thought kangaroo would be more appropriate. But I am glad it is not as I don't like the taste of kangaroo.
As a regular supplier of visual aids, here is a photographic representation of what we are to eat. Two, four, six, eight. Bog in, don't wait. Selected your portion yet? Don't save any for me, I am having beef tonight.
