I remember how bitterly disappointed I was when I returned to the UK after 2.5 years in Sydney to find my stepfather had bought in a few cases of Fosters as a welcome home. . . How to tell him no one drinks the p1ss in Syders?

The people look too freshly scrubbed and lacking in skin diseases.

Also, there should be giant steaming horse plops all over the ground.

@Ghost, my thoughts too. But then advertising is supposed to be aspirational, and clean streats and people may be appropriate...............these things need to be considered in context.
