[Blog Post] A Couple of Aussie Jokes

A couple of funny Australian jokes we found floating around the email! One is about beer (no shock on that topic!) and the other about Aussie slang – with a difference!

Beer Makes Wonderful Fuel

A 2007 study found that the average Australian walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Australians drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year.  That means, on average, Australians get about 41 miles per gallon.

Not bad eh!

From the Editor – I think their estimation on beer consumption is a little low!

Australian Slang with a Twist!

The following are results from an OZ-words Competition where entrants were asked to take an Australian word, alter it by one letter only, and supply a witty definition.

You may need to be an Australian 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.
  • Fair drinkum: good-quality Aussie wine.
  • Flatypus: a cat that has been run over by a vehicle.
  • Mateshit: all your flat mate’s belongings, lying strewn around the floor.
  • Shagman: an unemployed male, roaming the Australian bush in search of sexual activity.
  • Yabble: the unintelligible language of Australian freshwater crustaceans.
  • Bushwanker: a pretentious drongo, who reckons he’s above average when it comes to handling himself in the scrub.
  • Crackie-daks: ‘hipster’ tracksuit pants.

And for the Kiwi’s amongst us:
