Product Of Australia (made in USA)

I'm looking at the sandwiches on offer at the Outback Steakhouse. It reads like something set up by a person whose knowledge of Australia is a vague idea that it's in the south, somewhere.

This is their Mad Max burger: "A serious burger. For warriors only, please. Served with bacon, American cheese, pickles, onions, mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato"

This is a hamburger I ate for lunch today: Hamburger, fried onion, lettuce, tomato, fried egg, bacon, pineapple, chedder cheese, beetroot, tomato sauce.

Tell me which is the serious burger? Mayonnaise? oh give it a rest! and what sort of a steak house doesn't have a hot chips option to go with the salad or veggies option? Attention Outback Steakhouse: Chips are not a side dish. Now I really must go to one in the US so I can take the piss.

"How would you like your steak?"

"Knock the horns off, wipe its arse and bung it on a plate. And don't forget the chips. And if you say 'bonzer' at me I'll shove it up yer clacker and sink the slipper." I wonder if the one in Sydney is actually part of this chain. I Must Find Out.

And in other news, I ate the pickled onions.
