Barossa Valley resident, father and Conservative Party South Australian Senate candidate Rikki Lambert wrote to the local Barossa newspapers about the controversy that emerged on social media about a Barossa supermarket no longer handing out 'smiley fritz' to children.
The letter has been published across South Australia:
"The Tanunda Foodland supermarket smiley fritz slip and cessation scandal highlights the collision between past and present.
Nothing could be more South Australian than butchers giving kids a free piece of fritz with a pressed smile - my kids love it but the fun police have taken the treats away.
Lawyers and insurers deserve some blame, but at its heart, some people fail to take responsibility for their own safety.
I grew up defying death on the Monash playground, scoffing onion on my sausage in bread, knowing it's unsafe to go near cliffs or swim unprotected in the Murray - and there's nuts in my nuts.
It's a miracle we survived our childhoods.
We're the mugs who pay for stupidity and a litigious, insurance culture in higher premiums, rates, taxes, prices and lost freedoms.
Worse still, we're having less fun."
The Leader newspaper in the Barossa reports that local butchers will continue handing out the traditional children's favourite.
The former, free-entry Monash Playground to which Rikki refers can be revisited here. The Playground was a popular tourist attraction for the Riverland and South Australia, but was closed down due to public liability concerns.
