Aussie Word - Letter Swap
« on: Sat 23 Aug 2008 17:45:45 »
Aussie Words
These were results for an Ozwords comp where entrants were asked to take an Australian word, alter it by only one letter, and supply a new and witty definition.  Some of this may be lost on non-natives, but what the hell I found it funny.  You probably need to be an Aussie to understand.


billabonk
to make passionate love beside a waterhole.

bludgie
a partner who doesn't work but is kept as a pet.

dodgeridoo
a fake indigenous artefact.

mateshit
all your flat mate's belongings lying strewn around the floor.

licky
a day off you get by asking the boss nicely.

barramondi
the sickie taken after Sunday, for the purpose of fishing.

fair drinkum
good quality Aussie wine.

klangaroo
the sound a roo makes when it hits your bull bar.

flatypus
a cat which has been run over by a vehicle.

yabble
the unintelligible language of Australian freshwater crustaceans.

carlton drift
the wayward walk home from the pub

bushwanker
a pretentious drongo who reckons he's above average when it comes to handling himself in the scrub.

shornbag
a sheila with a brazillian wax.

lol ... they are really good, i particularly liked bludgie, billabonk and barramondi, but they are all good.

In fact it might make a good forum game to see what others people can come up with..... ;D ;D ;D ;D
