Woolworths, ANZAC Day and taking the (Carlton & United Breweries) piss

It is so good to see that, rather than fresh food, ANZAC Day is reserved 
for traditional things like getting pissed on VB, with all those Carlton 
& United Breweries ads to remind us of the link between grog and killing 
Johnny Turks for King and Empire.  Thus does Anzac Day fall prey to the 
vultures of capitalism.  What irony that ANZAC Day itself remembers an 
imperialist war in which workers from all sides sacrificed themselves 
for the very people today unleashing the profanities of Woolworths and 
CUB against the supposed ideals (but not the reality) of the day.  There 
is a logic that is unrelenting to this marketisation of one of 
Australian capitalism's holiest days.
