The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Our flag’s colours never run!

FlagWith politicians and commentators arguing that the Australian flag isn’t being used for various political agendas, I came across this sticker today on an office door at a factory where I’m having some metal fabrication priced. As I contemplated its meaning (colour-fast washing?) I noticed two more stickers above it – one for Winchester ammunition and the other for a hunting magazine. I presume the sticker is meant to indicate that the sticker displayer supports the War in Iraq and that we should not cut and run, or perhaps something altogether more sinister, like paramiltary white supremacy or something.

Definitely an example of the Australian flag being used in an overtly political manner, and the implication that if you disagree, you are un-Australian.

I contemplated this while waiting unacknowledged as the office manager allowed a lansdscaping contractor client to do all his design alternatives and thinking out loud so he could work out what it was that he actually wanted priced. I waited like a shag on a rock for 10-15 minutes. I was going to complain, but those stickers were rather unsettling – flags, guns and ammo can do that to you, especially in urban Australia.

    Ooh, er. What a shocker. Where were their pig hunting magazines?

    If you’d dug around a bit you would have found all the usual ONP and Shooters Party sh*t these coves have around the place.
