For anyone new to the site, I have put together a couple of common expressions used on ExplorOz along with the real translation of each to help guide you. Feel free to add your own.

When they say..............

(They mean....................)

I talked to a bloke in Birdsville two years ago who reckoned his was...

(I can’t afford one so I am delighted to relate a dubious story about the only one I ever saw.)

Mate of mine swears by his.

(Usually on the side of the road waiting for the NRMA.)

Does anyone know where I can find information on..........

(I couldn’t be stuffed ‘Googling’ it, so I will let you suckers do the legwork for me.)

As an alternative, why don’t you think about the..........

(I can’t answer your question, but I am going to tell you in great detail why the one I bought is so much better.)

I’ve just bought a .......... does anyone have any feedback, good or bad.

(Just the good please. Really.)

I have been hanging around this forum for a number of years.

(OK, so my life is not that great, but someday I will travel. Honest.)

I have had one for two years with no real problems.

(There is no way I am publicly admitting I got sucked in to buying a piece of crap.)

Fair dinkum some people are stupid. I met this bloke who........

(OK, it WAS me, and my wife hasn’t shut up about it since.)

Just saw a notice saying that Toyota has issued a recall on.........

(Suck on THAT Toyota owners!)

Just saw a notice saying that Nissan has issued a recall on.........

(Ha ha, gotcha!)

Saw a good deal on EBay..........

(It’s mine. Bid away fools.)

Any feedback on these Hiclones?

(Sit back, crack a beer and watch ‘em go.)

I know this has been done before but..........

(And guess what? I’m gunna do it again.)

I don’t know much about this topic..........

(Neither do the rest of you, but don’t let that stop you.)

I just picked up my new ..... this morning and was wondering...............

(Took me a while to come up with an inane question to post. But did anyone notice that I have something you don’t?)

Matt
My favourite is the guy that post to members trips with long detailed reasons why they CANNOT attend the trip.

If you cannot attend just shut the #*&$ up, don't reply to it at all.

But I understand that what you really want to say is that your are on your first BIG trip and you want the world and their dog to know, in detail.
Colin.

Don't really know mate. A bit of aggro on here recently, always good to take a step back and laugh at yourself I suppose.

I know I have sometimes being accused of taking myself too seriously.
Good to see your post with a bit of humour.
Like you say, some one logging on for the first time must really wonder what is going on with some posts. :o0

Nothing wrong with a bit of healthy cynicism.

(as long as it makes you happy rabbit on)

But that's only my opinion

(and I am always right)

you need to get out and do some 4wd travelling

(jerk)

Laugh and the world laughs with you

(I am laughing my box off)

But seriously

(seriously I enjoyed your post. good onya)
