One Minute Cringeworthy Musical Monday

River may have a Musical Monday this week. Thanks to Ian for reminding me of this commercial. Did I really want to be reminded? Unfortunately it became a flea in my ear for the rest of the day. Lol at the bloke riding the horse. He should give up meat pies. (Bitch slap to anyone who points out that I am not so slim)

  1. You are the man on the horse?

    1. John, no. Well not yet, anyway.

  2. Groan.
    And a reminder that I am decidedly unOrstrayan. I do like kangaroos. The rest? Not for me.

    1. EC, I don't mind a meat pie, if it is flavoured with pepper. I never think about what is in them.

    2. I like the meat pies that I make, although it has been years since I made any.

    3. River, I think bought ones are pretty good. I've never had a home made pie. You could make me one. I'll email you my address.

    4. If you email me your address you'll get Christmas mince pies. Real meat pies won't travel well through Australia Post.

    From my childhood in the 50s. A pieman used to drive around with a small wood fire stove in the back of his vehicle, with pies, pasties and sausage rolls warming nicely in the trays. When I raced outside, a shilling clutched in a sweaty hand, he'd always ask 'Do you want peas with that?' And if I said 'yes", he dip a spoon in a pot of mushy peas, flip open the crust and drop the dollop inside.
    I've travelled far and wide since then and I've never found pies and pasties that tasted as good. Sigh! - Ian

    1. Ian, was that in Sydney? I would not mind peas in my pie at all. What is this shilling thing you write of? :P

    2. So true, Ian...as I was saying in my second response below...I love pies...and when talking with a friend today I was mentioning I've searched high and low, wide and far to find pasties as good as those I used to have when I was a kid...and to this day, I've still not found a pastie as good as those of my childhood. I wish I could...because I love a good pastie!! :)

    3. A pasty from Vili's here in Adelaide comes pretty close to the ones I remember from school days.

      Delete
    4. Lee, at times I wonder if our memories of things like that are a bit wrong.

      River, we get Vili's here, but I don't think I've had one.

      I was raised in Rockhampton in Central Queensland and lived in Lamington St which is why I still love lamingtons. Do you remember cream buns we used to get at tuckshop? Hmmm. Frosting and cream that would stick on the end of your nose as you ate.
      Lee I think we had real food when we were kids. Food today is politically correct with all the 'real' flavour taken out as it's 'bad' for you. Didn't do me any harm. - Ian
      PS Before switching from pounds shillings and pence to dollars, some clown seriously suggested we call the new currency koalas. Can you imagine buying a pie today? 'That'll be 6 koalas 95 thanks." A narrow escape.

    6. Ian, I don't think we had cream buns or lamingtons at school. My preference was for jam doughnuts. I am sure Lee will agree with you. I hadn't heard of the koalas, but Anzacs and Aussies were suggested.

      Delete
    7. You never had cream buns or lamingtons at school? You poor deprived child, I hope you've since made up for that lack.

  4. I love a good meat pie...actually, I love two meat pies. I never have only one...always two!!

    1. Lee, I guess you aren't talking about party pies. I suppose I could eat two pies, but I never have. I like mine with White Crow tomato sauce, which no shop ever has.

      Delete
    2. No...never tomato sauce with mine - not to my taste at all...always Worcestershire for me.

      Funny thing is...today a friend and I were talking about pies and sauce preferences. And no, I was not referring to party pies.

      I always have two...one is never enough! :)

    1. Margaret, it is quite entertaining. I reminder of times past, and perhaps best forgotten.

  7. Great ad'. My old mate Jock Veitch (see Wiki) used to regale me with 'down to earth' Auusie ad's. I believe there was one for an Aussie beer that simply said 'X's beer gets you drunk'. Well, why waste words!

    1. Cro, Wikipedia? I just searched your blog and found out who Jock was. Australia was very state divided with beer, and I think FourEx, or is it XXXX, was a Queensland beer, so the ads wouldn't have been shown here. That's the problem with Australians and beer. They drink to get drunk.

  8. Apparently that was a copy of a Canadian ad! Sorry...

    1. Rozzie, so the words would be different. I can't imagine what they would be.

  9. But our best ad ever was the "bugger" ad.

    1. Rozzie, I couldn't really remember that ad, but I found it easily on You Tube. I was shrieking at a hilarious NZ version.

      Delete
    2. What happened to your later comment? The one that said it was an NZ ad was actually the Australian ad. It is very funny.

  10. I LOVE it :)
    Oh, what a memory that is, we used to singalong when it was on.

    1. River, I guess your kids were young enough to enjoy the moment, whereas a few years later they would be embarrassed by their mother.
