Come Visit South Australia, Where We Will Chop You Up And Turn You Into Sausage For Our Demonic Feast


“Just thought you might enjoy this singularly creepy tourism ad for the Barossa Valley in South Australia,” writes a correspondent from Down Under. “The Barossa is a famous wine-growing and foodie area, so I can understand why someone thought ‘Be consumed’ was a killer line. Unfortunately when it’s paired with Nick Cave’s ‘Red Right Hand’ and South Australia’s reputation as the serial killer state… well. ‘You know you’re never coming back’, indeed.” I kind of like this, but I am also of the opinion that pretty much anywhere you go in Australia you have even odds of ending up as the filling for a meat pie, so I guess I am responding to the perceived veracity. Local reaction is somewhat more equivocal.
