Funny Side To Aussie Slang Friday Funnies #205

As an Aussie I’ve noticed that Aussie slang seems to be dying and I think that’s a shame. It’s a shame because I feel it’s an important part of Aussie culture. There’s also a funny side to Aussie slang.

I’ve written a few posts that has Aussie slang in it. One was way back in 2009 called Duncan and Norm’s Big Night OutĀ Another one in 2009 was an Interview With Sire And The John Chow Confrontation. There are probably other posts that have Aussie slang in it but I reckon those two give you a pretty good idea of the funny side to Aussie Slang.

I got this email today which inspired me to do another post about the funny side to Aussie slang and this is it. Actually, it’s not really about Aussie slang, although it does have some Aussie slang in it, can you pick them out? It’s more about broadband in the Australian Bush.
