: 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
In college I was more fond of the phrase, "Talking on the big telephone".
(Just thought I'd throw that in the pot )
