Scotty,

You almost nearly made me cry. NOT. Yeah - Fosters is still crap. Eeeew.

On a side note, I think I may go out and help the local economy by buying a Kangaroo scrotum change purse from a tourist shop in the bottom of my building and maybe a skippy paw bottle opener as well.

When is everyone going to stop copying the "I am Canadian" theme from Molson? ....this one is very similar to the lines of the original "rant" except with an Australian context.

Well I would support you in the buying of kangaroo scrotum products, except they are all made in China these days....grrrrrrrr

CPDC10-30

You are correct on this being taken from the Molson's campaign, except that Foster's is represented by Molson's in North America, and the two companies jointly paid for the development of the ad's. From memory this Foster's ad has been running down here since a month or two before the Olympics. It would have been earlier but they had a pre-Olympic campaign going on as well.

Speaking of Molson, I think those new Molson Canadian ads with the wheat "being Canadian" are so anti-American I am surprised we haven't jacked up the tariffs on Canadian Beer!

If you have seen the ads, you know what I mean!

Molson is running ads that depict American wheat being destined for "undesirable uses" in the United States such as a loaf of bread in Des Moines or for a bakery in Brooklyn

Then it says that this wheat is "Canadian" and you have better use for yourself than those "American" products....Molson Canadian Beer.

Off topic kinda, but these last couple decades, our domestic wine industries have made great strides. A few weeks ago, I toured a leading-edge technology vineyard and winery. I'd have to say it was pretty interesting!

What other kinds of beer do you Aussies make? Just wondering...

DG_Pilot- I hear the Aussies are crazy about a beer called "Piss", I believe. Thats what mx5_boy told me. They simply love it down there I was told.

PUHLEEEEASE. If I want to drink water, I can just turn on the tap. Its a lot cheaper than American beer.

I agree with CPDC10-30. The first thing that came to my mind was the "I am Canadian" commercial by Molson. As to what American beer tastes like, I have no clue, as it would be illegal for me to consume it. Yet another reason why America is clueless, remember I am american, you basically become an adult at 18, except you can't drink. You can smoke all right, you just can't drink. Am I missing something here, or is smoking better than drinking, or it may be because Phillip Morris paid of the government to make that law? Tobacco companies aren't allowed to run commercials on TV, yet Beer, Wine, and Spirit companies are. America: the Land of Bureaucracy.

Dusty,

"Over here, everyone knows Fosters is crap and America makes the best beer in the world."

That is sooo funny. You should add along with your "best beer" - "aerosol cheese" and "olestra crisps".

I was the one who started that "I am Canadian" post but I will admit that those ad's as funny as they are(which are hilarious) are extremely anti american. I have seen those ad's on CTV and CBC a lot and they are very anti american.

On wine, Australian wine has made great leaps and bounds over the last 15 years, so far in fact that it ours are the wine of choice in Japan, even though they are quite expensive.

A wine from the Evans & Tate winery in Margaret River was recently judged amongst a couple of thousand different wines to be the best at a recent international wine show in London.

And we also have a brand of boutique beer called "Piss" because for some unusual reason, I think we have a sense of humour which allows us to do this, which is exactly what these Fosters ads are doing, i.e. taking the piss.

No I'm not serious...I am very thick skinned when it comes to that kind of "provoking" yet amusing ads.  

For those of you who can remember, Wendy's restaurants here in the US got in some hot water with the then Soviet Union back in the mid 1980's when it ran an ad depicting a Soviet style beauty pageant and the one contestant in the ad was wearing this very dull outfit.

The point of the ad was that in some places (aka the USSR) you don't have choices when it comes to your burgers (taking a shot at McDonald's which doesn't give you that option).

CPDC10-30,
Assuming by "lemonade" you mean the clear bubbly stuff which in the US is called by it's brand names of Sprite and 7UP.
Lemonade in the US is yellow and hardly carbonated, if at all, what we Aussies call Lemon Squash.
Soon found that out when my wife asked a DL stewardess for a lemonade and was told "sorry we only have Sprite and Coke" - perplexing world ain't it?

1. Foster's... not worth drinking, to my taste. Not because it's Australian, just because it really isn't very good.

2. I like Cooper's; am I wacky?

3. The Australian wines with which I am most acquainted are those from SA (Barossa Valley); I found them rather yummy... esp. the reds. Bought some Lindeman's CabSav tonight, here in Houston (Thanksgiving holiday with the rellies).

4. Do anyone besides Aussies call relatives, "rellies"?

5. Does all of Australia have that wacky thing of having to buy beer at a "hotel" (as best I can tell, bars with a room or two above to comply with some obscure statute)? Or just SA?

6. Canada can be forgiven for having an attitude about the big, friendly neighbor [neighbour] to the south; they get most of their television from the 'States, and that should be enough to piss 'em off.

7. Canadians are "Americans" too- America is a continent (two, actually- North- and South-), not a sovereign nation. Although I don't know of a convenient replacement for the colloquial "American" for US citizens. How about 'Staties? Maybe the ambiguity here comes from the historical reality that the USA is not truly a nation; it is fifty states, United. The state should be the dominant thing (sayeth the Texan, with pride).

8. Is it obvious yet that I am tired and need to go to bed?

9. Can anyone- anyone at all- really claim to enjoy eating Vegemite? I mean, really, it looks like a dog log.

Good night.

Sccutler,
I believe that I have to enlighten you as to the finer points of Orstralian kalcha.
Not all Aussies call relatives "rellies"! This originates from the state of New South Wales where they add "ies" to nearly everything. For example:
Bike riders are "bikies"
Truck drivers are "truckies"
Surfers are "surfies"
Teachers are "chalkies"
Students are "schoolies"
Sailors are "yachties"
Costume is "cosie" and so on. It's sickening.
Unfortunately being the state with highest population they think they are Australia and our unique lifestyle here on the west coast has been corrupted by this influence.
Here in Western Australia bars are also in "hotels", but there are more in taverns, restaurants, sporting clubhouses, night clubs, etc, none of which have to provide accommodation.
As for vegemite - it's yum! Nothing beats a thin spread of it on toast. Note - a thin smear! People in the US I have offered it to spread it on bread or toast about 1/2 inch thick! Aargh! Still that is in a country where most individual serves of food in restaurants are enough for 2 or 3 people and where you have to wring out half a litre (1 pint) of fat/grease from a hash brown before you can eat it  
Coopers though isn't a bad drop. I prefer Toohey's Red, or when our dollar can actually buy something imported - Miller. The only time I've actually suffered a Fosters was in the UK.
Cheers
PGF
