Lamb on Australia Day on Lamb.

I don’t know if the lamb marketing people’s annual campaigns to inveigle everyone into eating lamb on Australia Day has ever actually increased their sales (especially with lamb chops costing a forequarter-and-a-leg these days), but the lamb theme was adopted by the Lamb Island Residents Association today for what they called ‘Lamb On Lamb’. From 8am till noon, around our community centre (aka Pioneer Hall) they served barbecued lamb chops, and from 10am, the adjacent licensed Recreation Club got into the act too. It was a day of market stalls, live music, cricket games, thong-throwing competitions, and heaps more. And of course, an occasional cheap Chinese-made Australian flag got itself waved.
