AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Another Lord

A quirky sign for a small hamburger and chips shop in Swanston Street, Melbourne
The caption about caring puzzles me. Not sure why that would be added.
Caring about good food? Customer service? Anything?

A different lord
William Golding might enjoy
No flies on this sign

It's a take on the book and movie... "Lord Of The Flies".

Punny sign! But I also don't understand the "caring" -- I was trying to remember if it might have had something to do with Wm Golding's book, but I don't think so. (it's been a few dozen years since I read it, but I don't think there was much caring there!)
