Aussie slang....


Just a bit of Aussie slang to make people have a giggle :)
It has been a full day around here and is set to be a busy weekend too.
My Friday's History Post may well be up late tomorrow night. I will see how I go for time.

Ha ha!! That's awesome. I had never heard any of those before except the blotto one.

Sometimes for a game I use American slang on my Dutch friends just to see if they know the weirdness that is us.

Jay said...

Those are hilarious. I need to remember some of them to use them on people so I can leave them wondering what the heck I was saying. LOL

Funny introduction to Aussie slang !!!

susan said...

Too funny. Maybe I should print that out next time I want to mess with someone.

Actually, one of my neighbors is from down under, and it takes a LOT of listening to even figure out what she is saying...never mind trying to figure out the slang!

Cinderella said...

Thanks for the lesson, it was a little hard to read (even when I enlarged it) =)

Have a wonderful weekend- try to fit in some relaxation in there somewhere!

Beefcake Almighty said...

I have incorporated "Go On" into my everyday work vocabulary.

JR's Thumbprints said...

I love slang of all kinds, and I had heard some of these from the many great Australians I have met so far.

Grat fun. :)

Aidan said...

the Image of an australian, wow has that changed rapidly over 15 years. From Paul Hogan--> Rupert Murdoch.
I find it very hard to identify with that image of the ausie bloke.

Eternally Curious said...

LOL! I'm gonna start using "Pull ya head in" at work ... a lot! (^_^)

rosemary said...

I recognize 3 of the sayings...my dad used to say blotto about his drinking buddies that were under the table.

I love language barriers! We have an Austrian guy at work at the moment. And we told him we had a shitload of work to do. And he literally thought we were working with faeces.

Have a good weekend!

Miss Natalie said...

Farmwifetwo, you too hon.

Jay, hehe, give it a go and let me know what people's reactions are?

Parisian cowboy, why thankyou sir :)

Susan, LOL, maybe it is also the fact that your neighbour speaks fast stoo? I was told all the time to slow down talking whenn in conversation with my Brazillian friends :)

Cinderella, I know, I tried to find it elsewhere but could not. I will try to relax...that'll be on Monday (sighs)

Angel Without Wings said...

Fantastic!! You drongo! I haven't heard of that one in Yonks. (Translation for non Aussies - Yonks means ages).

Eric, ugly american #00 said...

Hello, Cazzie!

I'm just a silly yank (one of the good people of Michelle's Spell that you went to the other day). Just thought I'd check out the blog that you have going here.

I have to say, y'all are crackin' me up! (you have a wonderful sense of humor)

No, I'm not a hillbilly. I'm from Detroit, Michigan. We talk that bad here, but it grows on you after awhile. I blame our government, just like every other red blooded American.

Anyway, I loved the tips on the language. I'm a writer who needs to know the intracacies of a "chunder". Can't wait to spring that one on my friends.
