You know every Pom alive is responsible for everything bad that ever happened to Australia.
But still refer to Britain as "the Mother Country".

You know losing the Ashes might bring down the Government.

You know that [censored] happens, and don't sue somebody when anything untoward happens.

You think Kevin Bloody Wilson should be minister for cultural affairs.

You understand Australian rules football.

What are your chances Slim?.

What's your favourite colour Blue?.

What d'you do to keep fit Sport?.

Australia's a bonza place,
It's full of bonza blokes,
There's lots of beer
And no-ones [censored],
Except in Pommie jokes. M Python.

Australians are bonza blokes
They're God's own chosen race,
And if the see a fairy Pom
They'll smash him in the face. M Python.

That's funny. One of my best friends was from Oz. One of the very rare genuine friends I have made as an adult. Very down to earth as I've found all Aussies. An excellent mechanic. Taught me a lot. And very, very cheap. Whenever I get away with a cheap, Rube Goldberg type repair, I say to my wife, "Pearson would be proud of this one".

Yep, a lazy person must be called Sport,
A drunk or deadbeat must be called Champ.

And all of them must accept it with good humour, or they are a wanker. But if they take it in their stride, they are bonza.

Yep, they dropped it a few tenths to move tax brackets, (amongst other things), and the customers revolted.

Don't worry about the coins, over here they are used by size, so we use the $2 as a $1, and the $1 as a $2. No one reads the numbers on them. You can keeps your notes, but Aussie coins are legal tender.

Angelo was passing roof tiles up to my Dad, and Dad would flip them over, and tap them 3-4 times with a hammer.

Angelo called up "Jim, what are you doing, checking to see if the tiles are cracked by tapping them ?"

Dad..."No, just killing the redbacks".

If we had a bad day every time we came across a venomous spider, there would be never any good days in Oz.

I'll take a stab at that one: Darren and Sharon played AC/DC on the way to Mickey D's.
