WhippingBoy: We'll apologize for Outback Steakhouse as soon as we get an apology for Yahoo Serious and The Wiggles.
Monkeyhouse Zendo: Has her country apologized for bringing Hitler into the world? No? Well then she can just STFUAGBTW.
MadSkillz: /yes, I know you were trolling the Austria/Australia thing.
andrewmoriarty: We have an American-style steakhouse in my town with terrible country music and the waiters are required to cowboy outfits. It's meal are written out in that texas drawl and arecaricatures of american things.
MadSkillz: Monkeyhouse Zendo: Has her country apologized for bringing Hitler into the world? No? Well then she can just STFUAGBTW.Her last name is Fishbein. I doubt very much that she enjoys anything Hitler./yes, I know you were trolling the Austria/Australia thing.
Matthew Keene: I like to think the whole Outback Steakhouse concept is in some small way payback for this atrocity.[farm4.staticflickr.com image 427x640]And now, the TV ad.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNJP4mn6SD8
juvandy: As a yank living in Oz, I'm getting a kick...
rnatalie: "Shrimp on the Barbie" was not an invention of Outback. She should blame her own farking country's tourism propaganda. The phrase came from a Paul Hogan led commercial for Australian tourism which ended with him holding a lobster and offering to "Put another shrimp on the barbie for you."
eldritch2k4: hasty ambush: eldritch2k4: hasty ambush: eldritch2k4: hasty ambush: Besha Rodell, the critic, sounds gay judging by the high pitched sniveling in the article. Who in the heck goes to Outback and counts calories?Besha Rodell sounds like a heterosexual female based on this profile of her on another site and that she specifically mentions sitting with her "American husband" in the article.Could be that the" husband" is merely the "man" in the lesbian relationship. Like Ellen is to Portia. Or it could be a fake marriage helping her get her green card.*sigh*I take it you don't interact with many LBG people. In a lesbian marriage, both women are referred to as a "wife".Additionally, FTA, there's this: "my American husband beamed as he watched me". So, she's definitely married to a guy.And you are an asshole for assuming that, because she counts calories at the restaurants that she reviews, she must be a secret lesbian. It is not uncommon for a restaurant review to include the calories you will consume if you decide to eat at that restaurant. More to the point, and this may come as a shock to you, but some people do things differently than you. That doesn't mean they should have every motive questioned.You are also an asshole for the phrase "high pitched sniveling". First, it is a written article; it is impossible to tell pitch from words. Hence, the existence of Poe's Law. Second, most of the biatching in the article is defensiveness about having to deal with twenty years of being assaulted by bullshiat stereotypes, which is entirely relevant considering the restaurant she was in was built around those same stereotypes.Panties in a wad this morning or just riding up?Your ignorance is infuriating. You are bad and you should feel bad, asshole.
bratface: What exactly is Australian cuisine?
Dheiner: She liked the way every dish tasted, but she gave the restaurant one star. What a coont.
Rapmaster2000: finnished: Rapmaster2000: My favorite restaurants never get more than 3.Why don't you just make 3 the top rating?LOL. I meant in the critic ratings. If I had the money to go to a 5 then that would probably be my favorite.

Aussie_As: The Muthaship: I don't think I have ever heard of Australian food.
lumiere: Aussie_As: The Muthaship: I don't think I have ever heard of Australian food....1] You should never eat koala because of what they eat predominantly (eucalyptus).2] I've eaten most of the stuff you listed in Australia, just wanted to add ostrich and emu to your list (had that in a pub in Melbourne).3] You may have me blocked or perhaps not seen others already make mention of beets/beetroot on burgers.4] I also already mentioned Hog's Breath Cafe as a better alternative and found them to be a safe choice when we showed up in small podunk towns where we didn't want to take a chance with the local cuisine.5] I still think Australia developed it's own cuisine; i.e. changes in burgers, specialty meat pies and unique ways of preparing seafood. It's a new continent after all and these variations are huge given the short time span.
