In rememberance of some of the wacky language that made up the Aussie venacular in a time before political correctness, we invite you to share and build this post into a list of Aussie sayings that you remember, or maybe still use!! Give a translation too if you can. For example, do you call a meat pie a "maggot bag?".

Try if you can to limit the number of crass sayings please, it would be more useful if the sayings you selected were clever, funny, and out of the gutter but it must be recognised that many of these "out of fashion" Aussie sayings went out of fashion just for being that - too inappropriate to be repeated in the mainstream (being created by farmers and people living a hard life that didn't have to worry about every word they said). But here you are invited to share and list the ones you think we should celebrate and remember.

WARNING: This post may contain pejoratives and disparaging innuendo that may offend. We take no responsibility for any offence taken by person reading the material that may be posted here.

One of my favourites is:
"As busy as a one-arm paper hanger with the crabs"
Others:
"A dry as dead dingo's donger"
"As funny as a turd in a punch bowl"

Sausage Roll: Battered Bog

I am sure your post will trigger an avalanche.



If you relax at a faster pace you can get more relaxation in for a given time.

"Going for a durry". Off for a smoke. Said this to the receptionist and all I got was a blank look.

"Dogs eye and dead horse". A pie and sauce thanks.

"Flat out like a lizard drinking water". Very busy.

"A slice of bread short of a sandwich" and "Not the full quid". Not the brightest bloke in school to put it nicely.

"Fair suck of the sav mate". Stop pulling my leg and lying to me.

Over to the next one.

Going back 47 years ago when we first came to Aus from England my parents had a real problem.
Had some furniture delivered and the delivery bloke said "see ya later" M&D wondered why he'd be coming back and stayed up late waiting. Dher

Other time invited to a party (Aussie hosts) and said to "bring a plate" Mum thought they were short of crockery so did just that took an empty plate.

An other one from that era.

Some of my father’s expressions;

Such an old woman he sits down to pee

More cunning than an outhouse rat

Shot through like a rat up a drainpipe

Wouldn’t shout if a dog had him by the balls

Short arms, deep pockets

Done up like a pox doctor’s clerk

Mutton dressed up as lamb

Done up like the chief mourner at the Pope’s funeral

Putting on more side than a rat with a gold tooth

All ribs, p... and wind.

A face like the north end of a south bound camel

Shivering like a dog s... (poop) ing razor blades

Shaking like a dog after a flood

A cocky’s breakfast; a fart, a pee and a good look round

Tongue flapping like a flag in a storm.

A bob short of a pound.

A roo loose in the top paddock

Sticks like a turd to a blanket

And the last lucid comment he made 6 hours before he died

I’m buggered and a long way from home

Stone the crows, which means "My Goodness"

He took a Denny Hayser, which means "Had a spectacular fall" Lord knows who Denny Hays was??

Fair Dinkum, which means he's telling the truth

Furphy, which means it wasn't really true. Useage "It's a Furphy"

I think the origin of this was from the "Furphy water tanks used during the 1st world war when the diggers gathered around for water and a bit of a gossip.

Where does "Furphy" come from? I am glad you asked.

It was actually the name of the manufacturers of a famous water cart made in the early 1900's. The presence of the cart in military camps in Australia during the First World War led to the name of Furphy becoming an indelible part of our language. The carts were typically placed near the latrine area, the only place in the camp where soldiers were out of the controlling eye of their officers allowing them the freedom to express their thoughts on the latest news and to tell the odd "tall story".

Hence the connection to telling stories and pork pies.

My old pop had some cracker sayings. When it was real dark it was "as black as a dog's guts". One time I helped him paint his pigeon house. He reckoned the paint job had "more runs that Bradman".

Of course there's the open the Integrated Adjective by John O'Grady.


Integrated Adjective

I was down on Riverina, knockin' round the towns a bit,
An' occasionally restin' with a schooner in me mitt;
An' on one of these occasions, when the bar was pretty full
An' the local blokes were arguin' assorted kind o' bull,
I heard a conversation, most peculiar in its way,
Because only in Australia would you hear a joker say,
Where yer bloody been, yer drongo? 'Avent seen yer fer a week;
An' yer mate was lookin' for yer when 'e come in from the creek;
'E was lookin' up at Ryan's an' around at bloody Joe's,
An' even at the Royal where 'e bloody never goes.
An' the other bloke said, 'Seen'im. Owed 'im 'alf a bloody quid.
Forgot ter give ut back to 'im; but now I bloody did.
Coulda used the thing me-bloody-self; been orf the bloody booze,
Up at Tumba-bloody-rumba shootin' kanga-bloody-roos.'

Now their voices were a little loud, an' everybody heard
The peculiar integration of this adjectival word.
But no one there was laughin', an' me I wasn't game,
So I stood around an' let 'em think I spoke the bloody same.
An' one of them was interested to ask 'im what he'd got -
How many kanga-bloody-roos he bloody went and shot -
An' the shootin' bloke said, 'Things are crook; the droughts too bloody tough;

I got forty-bloody-seven, an; that's good e-bloody-nough.'
An' this polite rejoinder seemed to satisfy the mob
An' everyone stopped listening an' got on with the job
Which was drinkin' beer and arguin'an' talkin' of the heat,
An' boggin' in the bitumen in the middle of the street;
But as for me, I'm here to say the interestin' news
Was Tumba-bloody-rumba shootin' kanga-bloody-roos.'

John O'Grady.

As flat as a bleep carter's hat.

Lower than a snake's belly in a wheel rut.

Darker than the inside of a dead bear's bum.

Not Aussie, but still good:
Does Dolly Parton sleep on her back?
Does a fish fart under water?
Are the Kennedys gun shy?




I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Some of our favourites are

Does Dolly Parton bleep in the woods?

Does a one legged pope swim in circles?

and one my (now deceased) wag of a neighbour used to use a lot was
" And my cock's a carrot" if someone told him a tall story!

It doesn't work all that well when I tell it although always gets a laugh!

Cheers,

Heather

Someone with buck teeth.
He could eat an apple through a picket fence.

Does Jack Newton swim in circles?

Does the Pope wear a funny hat?

May your chooks turn into emus and kick your dunny down.

AS a true born Cockney, many of those sayings are a derivative of Cockney slang and not truly Australian but funny all the same. Time to go up the Apples and pears and hit the sack.

But I like the Australian adoptions:
Joe Blake for snake
Noah's Ark for shark
Billy lids for kids etc

and "he was so tight if he owned the ocean he wouldn't give you a wave".

"he was as full as the last tram".
The only time I made a mistake was when I thought I was wrong, but I was mistaken.

Dunny door - Commodore
Bag of fruit - Suit
Dog and bone - Phone
Noahs arks - Sharks
Young and frisky - Whiskey
Captain Cook - Look

havin a naughty - self explanatory
your shout - Your turn to turn a round of drinks for your mates.

"couldnt organise a root in a brothel" - not very well organised
"face like a dropped pie" - see "smashed crab" - not very good looking

Dads' favourite, "Haven't got a brass razoo !" = Broke, no $$$.

Actually found one somewhere in a souvenir shop once, bought it, and gave it to him when visiting one year . . . eons ago : )
After he passed away years ago, sorting through stuff, I found it with his knick knacks, and it's now with my knick knacks in a drawer : )

I can remember these from my old man ;

Has a head on it like a busted dunny seat (= very ugly)
bleep a brick (= exclamation if you've hit your thumb with the hammer)
Don't come the raw prawn (= don't get smart with me)
Lard head & lard headed poppin-jay (= someone who was coming the raw prawn)
Jeepers creepers (= thats a surprise)
Dill (= not very smart)

Haven't laughed as much for a long time.

I remember grandma,
" Ditto brother Smut"... same to you or same as you.
"Sorry is as sorry does" apologise & repair the damage.
Don't care, was made to care & don't care was hung" ..... Never quite 100% sure.
"Courage, Brother, do not stumble"..... go & do what you have to do & don't change your mind.
Not Grandma but,
Up & down like a yo yo.
"Up & down like a Harlots' pants....Something going up & down a lot.
Going like a Bondi Tram.....Speeding.




Good Idea, my 1st lot timed out so have kept the list short this time.
Take care, safe travels.
Bye for now Ma.
