HobbyKing's pitch to Aussie customers

Just recieved this email from HobbyKing to it's 'Aussie' customers.

G'Day Cobbers,

Spring has spung and our Aussie warehouse is full as a goog! So crack a tinnie and and get amongst it. We've lined up a fair dinkum sale so that you can get a fair shake of the tomatoe sauce bottle when buying your hobby supplies. You won't have to drive to woop woop cause we'll deliver flat-chat to your door.

So jump in and have a go or you'll be doing your block and screaming bloody oath if you miss out!

They must have recently employed Kevin Rudd to write their advertising copy
