Words, I love 'em. I read somewhere that the Macquarie (???) dictionary had identified pod-slurping as a valid neologism in general use. Yep, it's good, very evocative.
A couple of weeks ago I read about Australianisms that had died out, amongst these was "cobber', which my old man used to use all the time.
So I go into a newsagency in Rocky last Saturday to buy a paper, I proffer some money, the bloke says "thanks cobber."
Or, like, "whatever."
That is to say, I was, like, whatever.
And I was.
