It's a corker

Posted by Lotg on November 23, 2004

I'm pretty sure this is an Aussie saying. It's actually rather an old fashioned one these days. But nonetheless, I used it today when someone told me a joke that just cracked me up - I said, "that's a corker" - which means, that's a ripper, a beauty, excellent, etc.

This lead to us discussing the origin of the saying. AND lead to us arriving at the realisation that we didn't have a clue.

Does anyone else?
