Unhappy little Vegemites

In a move that is sure to test the coalition of the willing the USA has banned the importation and sale of Vegemite.

I rang Aussie PM John Howard but he was too busy power-walking in his daggy green tracksuit to offer any comment.

It seems Vegemite contains folate which is only allowed in bread and cereals in the US.

It's time we took a stand people!

Vegemite is listed in Wikipedia. It is one of Australia's greatest brands.

A fifty year old Vegemite ad is regarded as one of the ten best Aussie ads ever made.

Me thinks it time for us to ban something quintessentially American.

I know, lets ban Budweiser.

Then again what's the point. No one in Australia would be caught dead drinking it anyway.
