“The Australian made flags were a bit too expensive,” he says.
AUSSIE PRIDE: Lunch hasn’t even been served, but a Sydney man is already letting loose at an Australia Day BBQ today.
“I tried chatting to a few people here but nobody seems to want to talk to me,” admitted Chris Smithers.
So, he’s begun aggressively yelling the hardened battle chant; ‘Aussie Aussie Aussie, oi oi oi.’
“I love screaming that at the top of my lungs, ey,” he told DBT.
“It’s an easy way to attract attention to myself while at the same time seeming like an Aussie legend.”
However his patriotic efforts fell flat, with nobody yelling back ‘oi oi oi,’ or even acknowledging his effort.
And, the 32 year old was left even more red faced after being told the little Aussie flag he’s holding was actually made in China.
“No wonder the flags are so cheap. I bought a pack of 10 at Coles for $1. I’m not proud of it, but at least someone is making flags cheap enough for Aussie battlers like myself.”
