#BREAKING: Man left red faced at Australia Day BBQ after yelling: ‘Aussie, Aussie Aussie…’ but nobody replied: ‘Oi Oi Oi’

AUSSIE BATTLER: Lunch hasn’t even been served, but a Sydney man is already letting loose at an Australia Day BBQ today.

After struggling to manage any lasting conversation with other guests, Chris Smithers decided to randomly yell out ‘Aussie Aussie Aussie…’

“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.

“It was pretty embarrassing for everyone to be honest,” said one BBQ guest who wished to remain anonymous for fear of further embarrassing Chris Smithers.

“The ‘Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi’ chant was maybe ok at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, but it’s now very pedestrian.”

And, Chris Smithers 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.”
