Humour: Australian swarm language

Well I had to have a groovy title so I could publish a funny joke on this oh-so-serious blog:


to make passionate love beside a waterhole.


a partner who doesn’t work but is kept as a pet.


a fake indigenous artefact.


all your flat mate’s belongings lying strewn around the floor.


a day off you get by asking the boss nicely.


the sickie taken after Sunday, for the purpose of fishing.

fair drinkum

good quality Aussie wine.


the sound a roo makes when it hits your bull bar.


a cat which has been run over by a vehicle.


the unintelligible language of Australian freshwater crustaceans.

carlton drift

the wayward walk home from the pub


a pretentious drongo who reckons he’s above average when it comes to handling himself in the scrub.


a sheila with a brazillian wax.

From the Princess of Office Spam. Yes, you know who you are (every office has one). Viral marketing has nothing compared to her.

Language and meaning of terms evolves faster in social networks than I can keep up. Don’t use toon for avatar. Or ‘tar. Or avi. I stick with ‘dolly’ now. Fully sick.
