Australia is known for its big things.
All that oversized fruit: The Big Banana, The Big Pineapple, The Big Mango.
It’s Big Bashes – up the Scorchers!
The big storms, big wankers (enter Abbott), big comebacks (still watching replays of Eales in the 2000 Bledisloe Cup!) and big celebrations.
And the biggest celebration of all takes place next Tuesday.
There will be blow up pools, eskies full of the good stuff and Triple J’s Hottest 100 blasting even if you’re not the usual hipster wanker who normally listens to the Aunty broadcaster.
We’re also offering an odds-on price that there will be emergency rooms around this great southern land full of pissed idiots that didn’t quite make that jump / backflip / slide as gracefully as Marisa does ‘The Dick’ – see our Poll of the Week for more on this gymnastic beauty.
A good old backyard Slip ‘n’ Slide on Australia Day is as Aussie as Sam Kekovich’s Lamb ad.
Of course combining a litre of dish detergent with ten times as much beer and a run up to rival that of Bolt doesn’t always lead to success.
The same goes for combining that much grog, a swing, a pool and one bloke declaring – “I Have A Dream.”
If that dream was to make our vintage Aussie Day Video of the Week – he nailed it.
Luckily for us, the same can’t be said for his dismount – enjoy!
