An Aussie Sheila

Shut ya gob!

Crikey! I found this postcard from Thea in my mailbox a few days ago but wanted to share it with the Postcard Friendship Friday crowd. This is quite the lady: bleached hair, butterfly tattoo over the heart, the color-coordinated, overzealous eye-shadow, and a vocabulary that would peel paint. I think I’m in love.

Non-Aussies should incorporate these phrases into their day-to-day speech as soon as possible. Thea reminds us to “say all these with your best Paul Hogan accent.”

    Well I couldn’t in all conscience ignore this card, now could I? Several of those phrases are pretty mainstream in the UK, but otherwise I have to say there is no resemblance.

    Wanna come to our piss up….this meaning I never would have guessed.

      If someone’s “pissed” there it means that they’re drunk, not angry, so I’m going to guess that a piss up is a night of drunken revelry.

    And there’s the saying “He couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery”.
