Isn’t that what the neighbours normally say when interviewed by the news after someone is arrested/murdered?

Or describing the co-worker before he snapped and then stalked from office to office with an Armalite AR-10 carbine gas-powered semi-automatic weapon, pumping round after round into colleagues and co-workers.

I wonder what everyone would think if I started a trend of getting the Big Dipper (aka shopping trolley) tattoo-d to my body in a prominent position to display my patrism.

I have your countries flag on my Motorbike PB, but that is because it was made there.

A man of taste!

I have my country’s flag as a sticker on my car. Not out of nationalistic pride, but so other “PB’s” can identify with me. It’s resulted in quite a few interesting conversations, but no objections.

This flag-waving “proud Australian” kick is very recent, and has been adopted straight from the Americans. I don’t think any one who is really proud of our country would copy another country’s nationalistic displays to show it.

Yeah, because no one had ever waved a flag before the Americans did it.
Don’t you know the Americans were the first to do everything.

I had Vegemite toast for breakfast. Doesn’t get much more ultra nationalist then that.

Unless you were wearing an Australian flag as a cape, with a southern cross tattoo, and you spread the vegemite on the toast to look like an Australian flag, then you not a proud Aussie and should be deported to some horrid foreign country immediately.

A mate of mine went over to Northern Ireland and his first stop was a pub to catch up with his brother. He opened his backpack to get out a gift he had brought. Being something of a patriot he had also brought an Australian flag, which was on top, folded in quarters, Union Jack side up.

They left, very quickly.

Surely the Provos would’ve welcomed an Aussie in their midst? After all you’re both suffering under the yolk of colonialist oppression.

sounds like they had “egg” on their faces…

sorry. The yoke is obviously what I meant.

The US 1st Marine Division has the Southern Cross in there patch. Learn something new everyday, don’t I.

When the Australian flag is in quarters, Union Jack side up, it is just the union jack the anyone can see

I was taught to fold the flag with the union jack to the centre, so that no red was showing. Perhaps this is why?

The owner of that car could be a native of Tokelau, Brazil, UnZud, PNG… or perhaps a member of the US 1st Marine Division.

Wow what a whole lot of carry on over nothing! The owner of this car resides in my street and is no way a ‘redneck’, just a normal everyday proud aussie.
They keep to themselves and dont cause trouble, a great neighbour.

You’re right Monomania. If we want to go and see OUR Queen we have to stand in line with all the other foreigners

And all the English as well. Funny about that…
