|"Hey up there, mister life-guard!"|
Typical activities include the famous Aussie BBQ (false advertising aside, sausages in bread with ketchup are *far* more common fare than shrimp or prawns), backyard cricket matches with friends, drinking alcohol (!), displaying the Australian flag on your house or person, family picnics in the park, and of course spending a day at the beach (since it's summertime in January here).
Popular attire when indulging in these activities range from swimsuits adorned with the Australian flag to getting one's face (or whole body, if you're feeling especially patriotic/naughty) painted with the aforementioned flag.
It is also very popular for people (especially girls) to get temporary tattoos of things like kangaroos or "Aussie" logos in risque places, as seen in some of the images in this post, like the one opposite.
Incidentally, I always thought it would be unfortunate for such temporary tattoos to be mistaken for a real one by an disapproving parent or partner of the sort who spanks first and asks questions later... don't you think?
|Planning their targets? "That guy over there has a really cute bum! Let's spank him next!"|
Of course, boisterous celebrations and too much alcohol can lead to trouble for party boys (and girls!) of all ages.
Maybe it's a case of underage drinking that results in a furious parental punishment spanking at the end of the day? Maybe it's an impromptu bottom roasting on the beach in front of amused onlookers for being too loud or annoying other beach-goers? Or maybe it's a more playful smacking behind the sand dunes between a couple looking for a different kind of heat?
|"Hey, boys! Wanna celebrate with us? We'll be gentle..."|
Regardless of the reasons and circumstances, an Australia Day spanking will almost certainly end with a certain iconic piece of swimwear crumpled in a puddle on the floor, grass or sand!
And while the wooden spoon has always been my first thought as the quintessentially-Australian spanking implement, there's one world-famous item that can also bring sting to a bare bottom and tears to the eyes that couldn't be more suited to this celebratory day of all things Australian: the humble rubber flip-flop!
Barbequed bottom, anyone? :)

For my fellow Aussies, I just wanted to wish you all a happy Australia Day! For those of you in other parts of the world, please take this time to enjoy a beverage of your choice and raise a glass (or can) in thanks for the good things you have wherever you live.
And remember: even when things seem grim in "real life", there's always your online friends like me who share your spanking passions and who'll post silly things like this to make you smile!
For some extra fun, I've attached some Australia Day 'bums' (that's what we call 'butts' here)... and no, I didn't forget my female visitors! :)
