Strewth mate, no strange phrases in Oz? I'd say I get more inventive and colourful phrases submitted from down under than anywhere else - wonderful way with language - mostly to do with drink and its consequences I must admit.
- Crack a tinnie of the golden throat charmer/amber nectar
- Praying at the procelain alter
- Calling for Hughie.
Always picking up new stuff from Neighbours too. I especially like 'sticky beaking' for being nosey.
