Happy Australia Day

It’s Australia Day today. If you live in Australia that means you’re likely enjoying your day off, but if you don’t live in Australia Squash insists that you do at least three things today to honour my great country. Here’s a couple of suggestions…

Call your best mate a bastard…
Wear a thong on your foot, not under your pants…
Preface every sentence you say to someone by saying “Maaaaaate”.
Put a garbage bin in the background or in the middle of your street, grab a tennis ball and a fence paling and have a game of backyard cricket. And remember if the ball bounces off the house it’s only out if you catch it with one hand.
Have a BBQ and if you must throw a shrimp on there, please call it a prawn…
Drink an Australian beer (Fosters doesn’t count, noone drinks it here!)

Any other Aussie is welcome to contribute their own suggestions.

    Happy Australia Day Phil, love the blog mate. I must say, I didn’t think you’d last this long!

    Hell yes Phil. thanks for getting the word out. I’ve been in the US now for 2 Australia Days (I’m a Pertth, WA native), and not a SINGLE damned person I’ve mentioned it to over here had any idea what I was talking about.

    I even went to the “Outback Steakhouse”, a horribly-tacky “Australian” restaurant over here (which has about as much Kiwi decoration as it does Australian), and asked them what the drink specials were for Australia Day. I got nothing but blank looks from everyone there – none of them had heard of it.

    Keep up the good work – it’s good to have a cynical voice in the crowd πŸ™‚
