I have just watched the '2021 Lamb' advert, the extended version, which pokes **** at the current State border 'wars'.
Hilarious . Love it. Nothing like the Australian sense of humour to put stuff into perspective.

No ....................... hang on, I'm offended by it.
An elderly man eats meat, a part of a living animal before it was slaughtered.
There is sexual innuendo when the wall is broken at the genital area on a Lifesavers mural.
Tasmanians are denigrated.
There is inferred violence by a man driving a tank, and mob scenes that look like recent USA insurrectionist riots.
Ridiculing our elected Great Leader at the end of the video is treason.

What is Australia coming to by allowing such fake news being disseminated to the wider population ? Who can I complain to ?
I'm disgusted. Other countries would not allow this. :mad:.

Next, they will be showing Hoges perving on Elle MacPherson, smoking Winfields, .......... and Holden adverts with socially unacceptable driving, .......... and a chic in a bikini wanting to know 'where the bloody hell are you'.

Hate that day or three wait between catalogue sales. I need a few things from SCA to do some jobs on the ute but don't want to get the gear today in case what I need is on sale this week. It also just so happens to be the stuff that when on sale can be up to 50% off like thinners...

On Friday my next door neighbour came home early from work. He is a self employed earthmoving contractor. When I got up him about coming home from work he said it was poets day. Piss off early, tomorrows Saturday.

Has petrol shot up interstate? $1.29 now for 91. I put in 98 tonight but paid a $1.43. Few weeks ago 98 was a $1.29. I suspect it won't be long and I will be back to paying $1.65 for 98.

Has in WA.

Oil has increased to $60 per barrel so no doubt the greedy fuel companies have used it as an excuse to hike the price of fuel already in tanks.

Much is made of how much the NZ government takes in tax and that is why the price of petrol is so high. The NZ government takes 98 cents per litre. Both AUS and NZ get their petrol at roughly the same price. Last time I looked it was 78 cpl for NZ and 76 for AUS. I am paying $1.29 for 98 at Costco. Having a Costco in our area has made a big difference to the price at service stations in our area. They are not as cheap as Costco but it certainly not as dear as they were.

If they do build a Costco in Auckland you watch the price of petrol drop.

Price of fuel is sneaking up on the mainland as well by the sounds of it? Guess I knew cheap petrol wasn't going to be forever.....
