Aussie-isms - page 4

Ok, I'll start a thread too! :cool: In an effort to help our non -Aussies understand our lingo, I'll start a thread on our slang words and / or words that are parculiar, common, here in Aust. So... Read More

    An Aussie Love Poem

    Of course i love ya darling
    Your a bloody top notch bird
    And when i say your gorgeous
    I mean every single word

    So ya bum is on the big side
    I don't mind a bit of flab
    It means that when i'm ready
    There's somethin there to grab

    So your belly isn't flat no more
    I tell ya, i don't care
    So long as when i cuddle ya
    I can get my arms round there

    No sheila who is your age
    Has nice round perky breasts
    They just gave into gravity
    But i know ya did ya best

    I'm tellin ya the truth now
    I never tell ya lies
    I think it's very sexy
    That you've got dimples on ya thighs

    I swear on me nanna's grave now
    The moment that we met
    I thought u was as good as i
    Was ever gonna get

    No matter wot u look like
    I'll alway's love ya dear
    Now shut up while the footy's on
    And get me another beer

    This is fun. I've always loved things Aussie and hope to visit someday. But Grace OZ is 'bugger me' really something people say? It must mean the same thing there as it does here........

    If you come here and say it and people take it literally, you'll want to keep your back to the wall.:roll :chuckle

    Actually, it doesn't quite mean the same thing.....not in the general context of "bugger me" or "oh bugger it", anyway.....and yes, we really do say it!!

    Kavi "bugger Me" definately doesent refer to acts which some would label as indecent or illegal. MHN

    Ha,ha,ha!! This post has had me in stiches. I have a friend in CA(California), and she can't get her head around "Bugger me", or "Bugger it". She truly doesn't believe we have "BUGGER" stickers on the back windows of our 'utes' (something akin to a pick-up truck). I told her I'd have to send her a sticker, but can't find one when I need it. Another one that gets my friend going is "Mossie"...meaning a mosquito, or a "Blowie" meaning a blowfly. Bludger is another one that springs to mind. It means someone who is not pulling their weight. I got dozens, but I'd better give someone else a "fair suck of the sauce bottle".:chuckle
