Even in Arcadia

In the land of blissful pastures and rich red soil, we sell the finest fried food. We watch the drag race out the window and serve meat pies to the tradies. Occasionally a tourist comes in asking for directions. Like the chiko poster girls, we stand pretty and smiling behind the bain-marie, saving for our ticket out of paradise.
