Aussie sayings

Posted by Lotg on July 21, 2003

Hi any Australian's out there, and anyone else familiar with Aussie sayings...

I'm setting up an all Aussie gallery, gourmet, and gift shop and restaurant and would like to find as many Aussie sayings, etc. that I can. No, don't cringe, I'm not going to have all the wait staff saying "g'day" and "fair dinkum" all the time, I just want the info available.

Because of our colonial heritage I realise that many, if not most of our earlier sayings were probably originally English or Irish, however there have been a few, such as "don't come the raw prawn with me" that evolved here and we can probably call truly Australian.

So any contributions would be gratefully accepted.

Many thanks in anticipation...
