Australia is currently asking its citizens, by way of a postal survey, whether same-sex marriage should be legalised or not.
Yes, it is 2017. And yes, we are still having to ask this question.
Both the Yes and No camps have been fervently campaigning in recent months - with the anti-same-sex marriage campaign even choosing to use sky writing.
What an absolutely hilarious and characteristically evil baby boomer way of promoting the No vote. https://t.co/ljWp9ds1aW — Michael Beveridge (@Michael Beveridge)
Another message from the No camp includes a billboard spotted in Tasmania, telling people, “It’s ok to say no” to the survey's question.
They chose the wrong spot to advertise their views, because this particular billboard was beside Wiseguise Pizza – and they decided to get involved.
They painted the words “to pineapple on pizza” on the side of their restaurant, to complete the sentence – which, let’s be honest, makes much more sense now.
The owners told ABC that they turned to humour to avoid getting into anything political, and said the sign would have affected business.
Here's the sign's make-over as it happened:
This happened in #Launceston yesterday - #pizza shop paints their wall, adding a message for customers #SSM2017… https://t.co/NX9TMgfKUe — Fred Hooper (@Fred Hooper)
People certainly approve.
