If I were:

Calling Burke on the white phone;

Technicolour yawning; or

Having a chunder

What would I be doing?

If I were described as:

Having a few roos loose in the top paddock;

Unable to run a choko vine over a dunny;

Lights are on but nobody is home.; or

Two bricks short of a load.

Things Americans get wrong

“Rooting” has nothing to do with supporting a team.

An Ass is a member of the equine family, an arse is part of the anatomy

“Pissed” is not angry but “pissed-off” is

Pissed means drunk as in “pissed as a fart” or “pissed as a tick”

Do something

Piss or get off the pot

Have a go ya mug


Does the Pope kiss concrete?

No s$%^ Sherlock


Flat out like a lizard drinking

As busing as a Beirut bricky

As  busy as a one-armed paper hanger


As full as a state school port rack

Full as a goog



Fair dinkum?

Assorted fictitious things


Drop bears

a gomerator


Built like a brick shit house

3 Pick handles wide


Freeze the balls off a brass monkey

As cold as a mother-in-laws kiss

Cold as the hair on a polar bear’s bum.


Within a bees dick

A poopteenth

Fast or enthusiastic

Like a rat up a drain pipe

Like a mormon to a Malvern Star



Couldn’t pull the skin off a rice pudding

More front than Myer’s (Rat with a gold tooth)

As useless as an ashtray on a motorbike

Batting for the other team

Blind mullet ( aka a turd in the sea … aka Bondi cigar )

I don’t have a brass razoo

Poor as a crow

Come a gutser

Don’t get your knickers in a knot.

Suck of the sav.

Steak & kidney … Sydney

Chuck a Uee

Dinkie Di

Hit the frog & toad


Bucklies chance

Haven’t seen you for yonkes

Bush telegraph

Carked it

Chin wag

Fair dinkim

Cop a gob full

Crack on

Crack a fat

Suffers from eye disease

Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey

Kit and caboodle
