Things I still don't get about Australia - No. 24

The deep and abiding love of beetroot. Actually I do kind of get this because I'm pretty keen on beetroot myself, but I'd probably never have thought of putting some in a hamburger much less inventing special jars specifically for storing beetroot. And beetroot pizzas? Never in a bazillion years would I have thought of that. Not so much odd as just surprising, and not remotely a criticism because the weirdest beetroot serving idea I've ever heard of is beetroot fucking ice cream. And the madman responsible for that is a Brit.

You still haven't quite got your head around why we shipped all of them out there in the first place, have you?

Don't knock beetroot in a burger until you've tried it, though admittedly you can probably find better places to try it than Hungry Jack's.

Chuckles,they shipped a colony to Australia so that when the mother load failed,there would be the spore of Anglo/Irish Civilization left somewhere on the Planet.Deep thinkers our ancestors,with a long time line.

So Chuckles,own goal.

PS I'm an Aus not an expat.
