Description - Strayan Dictionary: Avo, Arvo, Mabo, ScoMo and all the essential Strayan words by Dominic Knight
The most un-un-Australian dictionary ever created, The Strayan Dictionary is your indispensable guide to the native tongue of Warnie, Hawkie, Dame Nellie, Kylie (Minogue and Mole), Little Johnny, Barty and of course Boonie.
More bonzer than a long weekend, as respectable as an underarm delivery and as easy to understand as 'yeah-nah-nah-yeah-nah', The Strayan Dictionary is guaranteed* to be as honest as a sickie, as useful as a beer snake and as unputdownable as a stubby,
* This guarantee is a furphy (also defined within)
'One wishes one had learned Strayan instead of the Queen's English. This book is bloody grouse, cobber.'
QUEEN ELIZABETH II
'How good is The Strayan Dictionary! How good is constantly saying "how good!"'
'Reading this thing is like being flogged with warm letters.'
'My quote was placed on this back cover without my knowledge.'
'I started reading The Strayan Dictionary, but I pulled out after a few pages.'
'This book was useless. I still don't know what "xenophobic" means.'
