How to Talk Australians

Given the number of overseas visitors that we expect to see down here for Thunda, it might be appropriate that they learn some of the lingo. If the page on Australian Rocketry site has left you wanting more, try this link:

Please note that this does contain some coarse language. It also contains what others' may consider coarse language, but is in common use here. It is very funny, especially if you are familiar with real Australian culture :D

I could almost imagine Australian being taught overseas in such a manner!

Enjoy!

I need to go have dinner now. We are having roast lamb...

This crippled me. :lol: I've live here nearly 15 years and that "Rhyming Slang" episode lost me more than once. This must have been written by an Australian.
