FYI – ‘Straya is what *bogans call Australia. 

*A bogan is an uncouth Australian usually seen in a *wife-beater and thongs. 

*A wife-beater and thongs is a blue singlet top and flip flops. Bogans usually get around in this attire when cooking a few *snags on the *barbie whilst having a *chinwag and swigging a few *stubbies. Better this than going around in the *nuddy.

*snags are sauasages. 

*A barbie is a barbecue

*A chinwag is a conversation.

*Stubbies are bottled beer.

*Nuddy is nude. 

Hooroo folks!

    Then I met an Australian who one night had to go the hospital because they forgot to check the toilet seat for spiders… and I thought yep definitely not for me.
    Now it’s more sort of like a
    F**k NO!! You flaming galah! Nope. Nope, no way, nope! Not happening.

      1. You should get a job in the Australian tourism industry… you’ve sold me. Now I know things will kill parts of me instead of all of me I feel safe and secure enough to plan a trip to Australia.

  4. Interesting information for me. I once saw a TV program about poisoning spiders that spread all over among houses in Australia. It was scary.
    I got confused upon trying to understand the words vocabulary at the end!!! 😮
