One theory I've heard is that Australia Day has no ritual or ceremony.
So I reckon Australia Day should be the culmination of Bush Week,
which is a 5 days public holiday in the middle of the year,
and everything in dan Murphys is free if you wear ugg boots.
and we build Gina Rhinehart and Clive Palmer effigies
and Gina ritually buggers Clive in a symbolic field of really tall poppies.
while we get pissed and fall asleep in the back of a ute
and when you wake up, you set a billy over a fire of treated pine kindling pulled off Chep pallets, and scratch your balls or tits and eat a stale lamington (these are traditionally made on the first day of bush week and left in the back of the fridge) until it boils.
kids could make the long stemmed poppies at school
All of that sounds more Australian than invasion and genocide.
I love that Australia.
But if I want the date changed then I hate Australia.
So I'm lost.
