Description - Australian Slang by Unknown

This dictionary brings together a colourful collection of colloquialisms from Down Under, including humorous rhyming slang, inventive insults and comical curses. Celebrating a distinctive and often irreverent language, Australian Slang is a ripper of a read that will delight visitors from OS, as well as true-blue Aussie blokes and sheilas.

Read this book to discover the meaning behind perplexing Australian discourses such as this one-

G'day mate! How've ya been, you old bastard? Take a butchers at that galah playing aerial ping-pong on the telly. He's about as useful as a one-legged man in an arse-kicking competition. The drongo'll get the spear if he doesn't pull his socks up.
