Looks like it:

Other things though were reassuringly the same. One of the most striking aspects of Australian life is their unflinching straight forward attitude to it all. This is shown in some of the products that are for sale and marketing techniques that prove popular. For instance thereís a liquid for your car engine called "Start, yer Bastard", or a holiday offer entitled "Bugger Me, Thatís Cheap" and one of the favourites was an Indian Restaurant imaginatively named "Red Ass Curries". Love it, you know just where you are!

Funny bastards

I wish I had a can of that 'start ya bastard' when I decided to drive my BRITISH Series II landriver around Oz. Also wish I had a can of get a 'rocket up yer arse' to make it go faster, and another 'its hot in here cool down a bit' when I crossed the desert. You sure know how to build things over there.
