Yesterday's news that SBS is producing a show dedicated entirely to the most delicious meat blanket, the kebab, was greeted with joy across the land.
But the joy soon turned to rage as many across this wide brown land asked, 'What the fuck is a kebab?'
It turns out that thanks to regional variances in language, the tasty beef sack has many different names, and people are very passionate about this.
This gentleman from Adelaide suggested that a kebab must be presented on a stick, not wrapped in days-old flat bread.
He was angry.
A Sydney-based beef wrap enthusiast was having none of it.
Meanwhile, some kebab enthusiasts were calling it a souvlaki.
Or even the shawarma.
It has to be said, all of these things are actually different meat-based snacks, with different origins. But in Australia, they've all become different words for largely the same thing.
