It has come to my attention that us Aussies don’t speak the same way as everyone else. Paul Hogan made the rest of the world familiar with ‘G’day’ and Lara Bingle made us cringe with ‘Where the bloody hell are ya?” But, recently, I have come across a few terms that turn the rest of the world on their head. Like: ‘Well, that died in the arse, didn’t it?’ Apparently, we are the only country that don’t think of Richard Gere when saying that.
However, it is our overuse of one little word that seems to cause the most grief: Piss.
To everyone else, it is what you do when going to the bathroom. (Although, in Australia, we have a bathroom, but use the toilet when we need to tinkle.) To the average Australian, it can mean a multitude of things. So why don’t you take my poll, and see how many of the terms you recognise?
Now, I WAS going to put the answers her, underneath the poll, but I just might wait a couple of days. Make sure you follow my blog so I can notify you when the answers are up.
Let me know in the comments if I have missed anything.
