Fancy A Shag! Not in Australia
Fancy a shag
Amazingly the Australians have taken offence to this Dutch lager called Shag, and have moved to ban it. The beer brewed as Alpha beer is distributed in Australia by a british euntreprenuer as Shag. A spokes person for the company could not see the problem stating that it was named after the bird that appears on the label - a member of the cormorant family and a comon site even on cold scottish beaches.
However the ozzies were up in arms against there marketing campaign which showed a bottle in the back seat of a car with the slogan "Fancy a shag".
I can't imagine why they would have a problem with this at all!!!!
