Aussie Lamb Dish     “I love lamb…lamb, lamb, lamb, there the lamb goes, down into my belly, mmm, mmm, mmm”. Of course this is improvised from Anchorman and not the real “scotch” quote that the famous Ron Burgundy says in the movie, but i’m hoping it got your attention and made you want some lamb; or at least think about it!
