Aussie Slang

Postby Lyannah » Tue Nov 28, 2006 12:54 am

So you americans (or danes /looks at Jaella) out there can extend your knowledge of australianisms past crikey and fosters, I have attached a more complete guide of aussie slang. The descriptions are accurate, I have heard 99% of these at some stage and many of them frequently.

My favorites I heard when I was there were:

True Blue
Fair Dinkum
Fanny (not the same thing in the US!)
Mystery Bag!! Also heard hot dogs called snags? I think? Or were those sausuges too hmm.

Then there is the whole car thing, bonnets and windscreens and boots.

Then I heard of Vitamin B (Victoria Bitter~beer)

You also have the whole cookie-biscuit thing like in England.

All these beer comments remind me of a joke:

Why is american beer like making love in a boat?

Its fucking close to water.

Anyway, for those of you really keen on getting up on your aussie culture I strongly recommend watching a film called The Castle. I don't think any other film sums up aussie culture like that film.

I heard that canoe joke about Australian beer the first time I heard it.

I thought the beer was tastier while I was in Australia, maybe that was perception.

Everything I ever needed to know about Australia I learned in Mad Max!
