Australia Day

Each passing year it seems like Australia Day merchandise gets increasingly nationalistic. "Aussie Pride" shorts? To paraphrase H. L. Mencken, it seems you won't go broke underestimating the taste of the Australian public.

I've commented on Australia Day before but these items in a Woolworths catalogue make me wonder how much tackier it's going to get.

Artist Bernie Slater has taken aim at these sort of products before and the image below is one of his works.
