Dunny

Posted by Lotg on September 14, 2003

Back on the 13th of September (well only yesterday actually), Irene Robinson asked about the origin of the term 'the bog'.

That reminds me to ask where, why, how and when the term 'dunny' came in to being, this being a reasonably commonly used term in the bush (Australian) for toilet. Probably less so these days, but certainly in my younger days.
