The pie doesn't lie

Hello dears,

21st century Australia is undoubtedly a success story. Criminal lowlifes, sail to
a desert hell, shorten every word in the English language and start a new life. Songs, flash language, tattoos, convict women mooning wowsers or 'exposing her person.'

For some reason the modern day Australian doesn't like being reminded that they were once part of the British Empire, and to the untrained eye all trace of this heritage has been wiped out.

The proof is in the pudding, or in this case the pie! The Pie Floater — a meat pie “floating” in sea of mushy pea soup, with a squirt of tomato sauce on top. This poor bastard child of our own much loved Pukka® and mushy pea combination is the preferred choice of the working class Aussie. The pie symbolising the convict boat and ketchup, the conflict with native Aborigines over land.
