Fluent in Aussie-English by lupisashes Fluent in Aussie-English by lupisashes
My first language! 8D

It's amusing and kinda annoying how many times I've had someone go, "huh?" when I've said, "Is it dear?" or "that's really dear! Where the hell is someone supposed to get that kind of money!? D8" As dear is (was? Damned Americanisation killing off our lingo) used to mean expensive.

Then there's words like fanny, fairy floss, ANZAC (introduce your face to your desk, if you're Aussie or a Kiwi and don't know what that acronym stands for), prawns, Pom, wog, chuffed, etc, that also get a few WTF reactions. XD

Does anyone want another other languages in this style of stamp? If not, I'll leave 'em be. And my watchers cheer. XD

Texters, 'nough said there. I moved to the UK in 2004, and I I said to people (and I kept forgetting not to say it) "Can I borrow your texter?" and they're all like "lolwah?".

And Thongs (SHOE).
And Cordial.
And Barbie.
And Didgeridoo.
And ... you get the idea.

Poms ... ack! AND EVERYONE SINGLE ONE OF THEM I HAVE MET HAS TASTED VEGEMITE AND SPAT IT OUT. WTF? I LOVE VEGEMITE, I JUST HAD A DOUBLE DECKED VEGEMITE SANDWICH. AUSSIE PRIDE, MAN.
